Our Work

HP (Hewlett Packard)
We worked with HP from 2005 until 2008 when it brought most of its social media initiatives in-house. We developed and executed a blogger outreach program for the launch of the HP Photo Books (Fall 2007). We also handled blogger and online community outreach for HP’s charity auctions of celebrity photos from the 2005 Toronto Film Festival and 2006 Sundance Film Festival. For Sundance 2006, we developed the Backstage at Sundance blog, trained the on-site bloggers and served as blog editor.

We have served as GuideMark’s outsourced marketing department since 2005.
