Adknowledge Announces “Big Mailers in the Big Easy” Contest

Leading digital marketing company is taking its best partners to New Orleans.

AdStation, Adknowledge’s email channel, is announcing the launch of its “Big Mailers in the Big Easy” contest, a promotion rewarding both its highest-earning, and fastest-growing email marketing partners. The contest, which runs through August 30, rewards winners with a four-day, all-expense paid trip to the amazing city of New Orleans.

“We really enjoy doing these trips for our partners,” said Matt Hoggatt, general manager of Adknowledge’s email channel. “It’s not only an opportunity to reward our best publishers, but to also meet and share ideas with some of the finest minds in the industry.”

Adknowledge is taking its five highest revenue-earning partners, its four fastest-growing partners, and also a “rookie of the year,” which will be the partner demonstrating the best spirit of collaboration. Winners will leave for New Orleans on Thursday, October 17 and return home on Sunday. Meals, music, a voodoo atmosphere and perhaps even a ghost or two are all on the itinerary. Partners still have plenty of time to push enough traffic to win; many took notice of Adknowledge’s most recent exclusive event—an invitation-only party on Alcatraz the week of ad:tech San Francisco.

“We are absolutely going to have some fun,” said Bill Intrater, VP of strategic alliances for Adknowledge. “In the past, we’ve taken our partners to places like Napa and Grand Cayman, and we’ve always had a wonderful time. Our goal is to treat our partners well, and in this case, to provide them with a trip they’ll remember for a long time. I went to Tulane University in New Orleans, and I know where and how to have a great time in that city. I can’t wait to get our partners together in the Big Easy!”

Adknowledge “Unlocks the Rock”

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — May 8, 2013 — Adknowledge hosted the party of ad:tech San Francisco. The company rented Alcatraz for a private tour and an evening of dinner, drinks, music and stories from people who know “The Rock” the best. And today, we released our visually stunning, documentary-style video that allows everyone to experience what so few did on April 9 in the San Francisco Bay.

It took 16 months of meticulous planning to pull off an event this ambitious. The National Park Service, which oversees and maintains Alcatraz Island, approved Adknowledge’s request for the reception. More than a hundred publishers and advertisers joined a handful of company executives for a private, behind-the-scenes tour.

Stationed around the notorious former prison were three people who know it best: retired guards Frank Heaney and George DiVincenzi, as well as Jolene Babyak. Her father was once the acting warden of Alcatraz, and she was living on the island the night in 1962 when four inmates conspired to escape the prison. Adknowledge guests were captivated as she, George and Frank told their compelling, first person accounts of life on “The Rock.”

In addition to the video capturing the sights and sounds of the evening, Adknowledge has posted dozens of photographs on the company’s Facebook page that you can see here.

What will Adknowledge do as an encore to Alcatraz? In the words of our CEO, Ben Legg: “We’ll work it out.”
