Networking

Dear Blogosphere-

I like to keep my work life fairly anonymous around here but I have a little project that I could use your help on.

I'm managing a guerilla marketing event in several cities across the country this fall. I need to find two cute, athletic women in Pittsburgh, Denver, San Francisco and Austin who would like to spend a morning handing out "free shoe" coupons at popular running paths in said city. I will outfit these ladies head to to and provide a little financial incentive as well.

If you, dear blog reader, are or know of such a female, please email me at katieclifford at gmail dot com.

I'm going to pull this post at the end of the week so if you can help me out-act fast!

thanks!

and for the rest of you... here's an old gem of a song I ran across last night. Who doesn't love a super dramatic breakup song? "I spent 16 months! Trying to forget you!"

If only you were looking in DC! What a cool opportunity (for both the givers and receivers). You're going to make someone's day with those coupons. I think that would be the one time I wouldn't mind seeing a smiling face on the trail while running!

i HOPE that's how people react...we'll see!

i'll keep you posted if we ever come to D.C. though!

What about Jersey or New York. Pittsburg of all markets? I might have someone there, but I will have to make a call.

of course we are doing New York but that was an easy one to staff.
Pittsburgh IS a weird choice but it's because a retailer we are courting is there.

And these two are in Texas, but I don't know where (I know...it's a big state).

Kersten said...

Wish I had someone to help you out in Austin....plenty of cute/atheltic girls there for certain though.

Saw an interesting item on AdFreak.com re: an agency pithcing the Saucony business.

Mike said...

pitching (but you knew that)

SJ said...

You probably have all people you need for Denver but if you are in a pinch I am about 45 minutes north. I could get some girls to go down with me (if it is on a Saturday).

I'm in Denver, if you need someone....

Also, I was going to suggest my friend who is also A. Rogers. I wonder if this is the same person that Kersten suggested. That would be a pretty small world!

Katie said...

Oh, I forgot to give you my email address:

katie.cardon@gmail.com

mike-i think i actually got a good lead in Austin. I forgot an old friend lives there and his wife is on the case : ) I'll have to check out that AdFreak stuff for sure.

thanks everyone for your help! i have some fantastic leads and oddly enough...one blog post has gotten me 10 times further than the staffing service I was trying to use.

hooray for the internet.

Heather said...

Yeay!

I'm sure you probably know plenty of people in the city, but if you do need someone I'm only 76 miles from San Francisco if you need someone and since I'm able to be at stay at home mom right now I'm available pretty much any time you might need me. We've finished our summer activities since school started again today.
