It’s hard to believe that we are just a couple of days from moving into the hot, sweltering days of Summer in Atlanta. With June just around the corner, I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to send a quick note with some updates on me and the projects you (may) know I work on.
Social Saints — my baby
If you didn’t already know Social Saints is the marketing technology consultancy I started in 2008. Over the past two years (without a website believe it or not) we’ve been able to secure some great clients and really explore our service offerings to see what the Kingdom needs. We are now set to launch or web presence in the next few weeks and really take our position as a premier marketing consultancy for the faith-based sector.
As of now we’ve got a couple of clients under our belts with a few more in the pipeline. Currently we’re working on themichalemahaffeyproject.com [or mikethroughmusic.com] and Batiste Music . The Michael Mahaffey Project is a new, multi-dimensional gospel performance by Michael Mahaffey. Though I can’t disclose any major details, I can say that Mike’s performance will give you some additional perspective and send you on a journey through sacrifice, service and triumph. I’m excited to see the finished product and I’ll let you know when the site is ready so that you can all purchase tickets [Atlanta, Georgia – September 2010].
As far as Batiste, we’re still working out the details but to date, Socials Saints will create a layered social media campaign leveraging their various networking, fans, and contacts. The plan is to allow people to get to know Batiste more while generating awareness for their music and performances. Stay tuned and I’ll let you know when some of our work “goes live.”
A Couple of New Projects and a Pivot
Let me start with the pivot. We recently celebrated our 10,000th user on DIGITALGUESTLIST and so with that milestone behind us, Joe and I decided to take a look at what DGL has to offer and make some adjustments. Thought I can’t talk too much about it yet, we are currently reviewing some changes to the DIGITALGUESTLIST platform. A UI change, feature simplification and a new approach for platform users and marketers will totally change the benefits and utility of DGL. Stay tuned over the next few months.
In addition to my Social Saints clients and a DGL pivot, I’m also in the process of starting two new start-ups. Both of them are tech start-ups and in my honest, but biased opinion are both game changers. One will focus on a new way to foster conversations about your favorite online content with friends, while the other focuses on providing small businesses with a new way to connect with their customers. I know, I know my descriptions are vague, but within the next few months it will all makes sense.
Well that’s all I wanted to say for now. Forgive me for my vagueness but I will share more with everyone soon! Until then be blessed and be safe
Oh and to make the title of this post relevant… yes I am a NBA fan and I’ll be watching the Celtics and Lakers play over the next two weeks! If you want to link up and watch (and live in the Atlanta area) let me know.
