Volunteering Can Be Good for Business

By , December 3, 2011 1:02 pm

The holiday season isn’t the only time to think of giving back. In these hard pressed financial times, it may be easier to give of your time than to make a cash donation. Have you considered being a volunteer? For those of you thinking, what’s in it for me? I have one word for you plenty!


Where do you find volunteer opportunities? A good place to start is the website volunteermatch.org. By putting in a location (NY, NY) and trying out a few different key words such as fashion, sewing, retail business, small business and the word intern, numerous volunteer opportunities were displayed around the NYC area. These included working in public relations, IT, media/communications, event planning and web development/web design. These opportunities appeared at a myriad of organizations including the Japan Society, Dress for Success, the Police Museum and the International Hostels.

Remember the question, what’s in it for me? Being a volunteer can help to answer one of the most common questions I hear from my students. How do I get a job as an intern? It’s a great way to gain experience and lead to a paying job in the future. (Sometimes where you were a volunteer.) And, living in the NY area, the second most common question I hear from people I know… how do I meet people? You get to spend time with like-minded individuals giving of their time for a cause or organization that means something to them. It’s one of the best ways to network and meet people that I know.

Interactive Experience For Holiday Shoppers

By , November 29, 2011 11:37 am

WHAT’S TRENDING

This time of year, retailers need to get more creative to not only sell their merchandise, but more importantly, get consumers into their establishments.

Currently, Calvin Klein has teamed up with Shazam application, which allows consumers to experience and share music with others across mobile devices and the Internet. They have integrated the discovery option into the Calvin Klein’s holiday campaign.

Focusing on their Holiday campaign, Calvin Klein Jeans and Calvin Klein Underwear stores will feature a unique sound installation in stores across the globe.

By incorporating Shazam into their Holiday in-store marketing strategy, Calvin Klein has truly focused on the interactive component. Consumers can use Shazam to tag the interactive displays within Calvin Klein stores to receive exclusive content such as in-store promotions, a complimentary download of the display song and Calvin Klein holiday wallpaper.

The company is engaging with their current clientele as well as existing Shazam app users, and this strategy is meant to educate and acquire new potential users. Both companies have focused on promotion for this initiative through direct outreach to current and potential users.

Calvin Klein and Shazam are also utilizing their social presence on Facebook and Twitter to encourage users to partake in the campaign.
