May your Holiday Gifts be Facebook Branded

Man- its been awhile… and rightfully so… I promise… lots going on in Ryan Hand land, but that will be a story for another time. Right now- its time to talk about FACEBOOK! Do you think if I use the word “Facebook” enough in this facebook post that I will go up in SEO becasue of facebook the searchable word? I’m facebook not facebook sure facebook either…

So I get back to work and on my desk is a pretty little box (for the record- not pretty- Brown normal box). I open it up and its another box. This one is actually pretty, white with some social facebook branding

My first thought is that I am so freaking awesome that Facebook has sent a personalized job offer to my current employer! Wow- I must be THE SHIT! Then reality hits me… Facebook doesn’t want me, they want my business… ok fine. Let me just open this box before I make any more assumptions…

 

 

 

 

 

ahhhhh! Please… what does please mean? ok now I am getting excited… please please please, and it looks like there is something fun in a jersey bag… EXCITEMENT!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please share? Please share what? I feel like little Ralphie on “A Christmas Story” with my Little Orphan Annie Decoder, sitting in the bathroom waiting to find out what Annie could possibly need!!!

PLEASE SHARE WHAT?!?

 

 

 

Ah HA! Please Share the Good Cheer. $50 to the Educational Cause of my choice! Ok- Facebook, I like.

For real, this was a really awesome way to give a really wonderful meaningful gift to your customers. Its not a box of really bad candy or stale trail mix (if you are going to send me these things please still send, I do eat them… usually in one sitting) it was a gift that gets to make a difference.

 

They also included a really nice reusable water bottle with a filter. A

 really nice gift for a conscious austinite.

Lets take a second and talk presentation: They really stopped at nothing to make this look amazing. From the outter box being very “apple clean” to the easy message of the cards.  They use of less than 15 words to make a HUGE statement. This is marketing. This is branding. This is the way that thoughtful gifts should be done.

I know their resources are high, but if you are trying to win the affection of someone this is a great way to do it.

 

 

Thank you Facebook, and may your Christmas be bright!

iLove iPhone

So I just got my iPhone about a month ago. And just like everything else from apple… i’m head over heels in love. It does all the wonderful things you could ever expect from a phone, but not only that, its truly got me down to one device. For example I used to carry a regular digital camera, a flip video camera and my phone when i went on a trip. Now its my all in one. Here is a little example of what all she can do.

Its not only pictures… its video- at the bottom is a little ditty I recorded and edited on my phone yesterday. Basic but Better.

Rally enjoying life
