HISTORY

  • Social Media Marketing since the MySpace Era…

    In 2006 people thought we were both creative and crazy for eliminating billboards and magazine advertisements to use sites such as MySpace and Facebook. The economical replacement and new form of marketing quickly turned into a business and educational series.

2006-2008

    • Our founder, Christi Tasker took notice of her 11 year-old daughter, Macy finding products on MySpace.
    • Christi tested her first social media marketing campaign for her retail store, Ambiance Interiors & Gifts, Inc. on MySpace. The campaign targeted kids 10 & up using a product they were all looking for – Webkinz. The objective was to get kids into the store with their parents.
  • 2007

    • Average sales increased more than 25% by 2007 thanks to Myspace.
