Checking in to Brand Loyalty: How do brands leverage location baed services and the “check in” from novel mobile game to driving actual brand loyalty and commerce? To date, daily deals have driven incremental foot traffic to local retailers and vendors for one-off dails, but to really reap rewards, brand loyalty needs to be developed. How do brands win repeat business and build long lasting relationships on the local level?

When you’re as small as these little giraffes, you need some help getting noticed. That’s why Grey and DIRECTV tapped Pandemic Labs to help seed their latest installment of the Opulence campaign. The results were pretty astounding, with tens of thousands of people signing up to receive their very own petite lap giraffe within the first 48 hours of the campaign. Check out petitelapgiraffe.com to get on the waiting list today. (They’re real, we promise).
Bullying is a major problem facing children today. Perhaps no group of children is at greater risk bullying than children with special needs. Pandemic Labs’ client, AbilityPath.org, interviewed experts, educators and parents regarding the silent bullying epidemic facing children with special needs. The result was the report and guide, Walk a Mile in Their Shoes: Bullying and Special Needs. Read, Learn and share its important results and resources.

Pandemic Labs could not be more proud to have role in the support of this important cause, and we are excited to help spread the word about this report, about which Tim Shriver says:
This important report confirms the presence of a silent epidemic in our schools and communities. Hundreds of thousands of children with differences are being subject to humiliation and isolation week in and week out around the country. It is time to bring this problem to light and marshal a call to action to our young people to put an end to it. This report shows us that what you say matters. I hope young leaders around the country will act on it by joining, sharing and leading the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign on March 2, 2011.”
