Happy anniversary… to us! New year, new focus.

- ByKirstin Richter

What’s new at The Social Agency, you ask?  Lots actually.  Since starting up a year ago, we’ve certainly been busy. Here’s a celebratory recap:
For starters, we launched a networking event series for app developers and marketers called ‘Appy Hour.’ We’ve since hosted two sold-out events at The Diamond and Revel Room in Gastown.

We’ve also gotten to work with some really wonderful clients including:

X-Weighted is a Television documentary series that follows unique and courageous individuals on their precarious weight-loss journeys.  We promoted the launch of their website (www.xweighted.com <http://www.xweighted.com> ) and National Fitness Challenge through a social media campaign which included blogger outreach and the use of platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and YouTube.

Fusion Digital Media & Venture Forum
Fusion is an annual presentation of The Digital Media & Wireless Association of BC. We recruited and managed their speakers and oversaw the logistics for this year’s event.

Benefic provides strategic, legal and operational advice on charity law, tax planning, gift planning, major donor and Internet fundraising. We organized a summit at the Vancouver Museum to solicit research for their new CH_IMP (Charitable Impulse) initiative.

Vancouver Eco Fashion Week
Vancouver Eco Fashion Week held their launch event, Eco Fashion Forward, during the 2010 Olympics.  We provided branding consultation, copywriting and PR consultation for them.

Northern Voice
Northern Voice is a popular blogging and social media conference. For their 6th annual event, we produced a ‘Mad Men’ themed bowling party for the conference’s opening night celebration.

Better Together
Bettertogetherbc.ca features the tools and resources needed by health professionals, educators, parents and community agencies to support families to eat together.  We set up and managed a strategic social media campaign for them which included writing weekly blog posts and community outreach through Facebook and Twitter.

Most recently, we’ve re-launched our own website to reflect our focused new direction: providing promotion services, specializing in traditional PR and social media marketing. Call us : )

And, in less business-y news, we’ve also celebrated a wedding and had a baby!  Monica got married in August and Kirstin’s daughter Zoe was born in December.

Here’s to another fun and eventful year!
