The Power of Your Consumers

Raven Askew No Comments

Anyone else an Amazon addict?  Personally, I’m surprised if a day goes by that I do not visit Amazon for one reason or another.  Price comparisons, saving time on shopping, or getting the skinny on product.  It’s one of the best places to go on the web to get product reviews from so many different “departments.” 

Anytime I plan to make a large purchase, or even small purchases that are new or not within my normal shopping routine, I scour the web for reviews to make sure I’m spending wisely and getting a good product or a good deal.  This typically applies to many other areas of my life as well, restaurants, new businesses, anywhere that I don’t frequent.  These reviews give credibility to the products your customers are planning to purchase as well as to your business.

It’s that time of year again!  Get your team bling ready for some iFive:K action on Thursday, April 18, 2013.  This year’s race is going to be bigger (literally – registration is capped at 800 this year!) and better than ever before.  With not only another epic after party sponsored by yours truly, BoomTown, there will also be a scientifically approached pre-party sponsored by our neighbor and dance off rival, Blue Acorn

After you head to the starting line at 4 p.m. to hit up the pre-party and get your photo with the iFive:K squirrel, get your stretch on with The Foot Store. They will prep you for all of your running, walking, or shuffling.  Then, jump right on in at 6:30 p.m. and hit the trail, otherwise known as, Downtown Charleston and The Battery. 

This year's fare will be provided by Andolini's Pizza. Say “Aloha” to their delightful Almost Hawaiian pizza at the post-race Luau, and make sure to bring your grass skirts and coconut bras as you hula to our mele.
