Social Media: Working for us!

Because tugo is the first of its kind, the potential for growth was limitless. However, because tugo is so new, determining the best communication channel mix was a challenge.

Along with plenty of help from Verve Northwest, we used social media (Twitter, blog, Flickr, Facebook),...

Each summer they send all of their clients a gift bag when they go to their respective training camps at the beginning of...

Maxim puts a new spin on the tugo

We were certainly surprised when we heard that Maxim Magazine (yes, THAT Maxim) was going to include the tugo in their summer travel article.
