Another Successful Spigot, Inc. Affiliate Summit

Last week Spigot, Inc. took a trip out to Las Vegas to attend the annual Affiliate Summit West. The summit is held in the Paris hotel and gives companies in the advertising, marketing and affiliate space an opportunity to network, catch-up with clients and learn more about the affiliate/marketing world. With over 6,000 attendees from from 60 different countries, and over 300 exhibitors and sponsors – ASW is the biggest marketing conference in the world. This conference is extremely beneficial for us – Spigot, Inc. got to meet with new and old client’s –  in a relaxed/fun setting to foster relationships and gain new business/ways to drive traffic. 

The first day of the summit consisted of a “Meet Market” with over 1,000 booths of companies looking to make connections. The remaining days of the summit –  everyone got the opportunity to go into the exhibit and check out all of the booths and everyone got EXTREMELY creative this year!  There were a few giant tiki bars with mingling areas, a huge coffee bar, a simulated wake board and PowerInbox had a throwback airbrush shirt stand! During the times Spigot, Inc. wasn’t attending the exhibit, we took clients on a helicopter ride, jumped off the stratosphere, attended client-run parties and had extremely productive dinners.  

Overall ASW was a great experience for new and old Spigot, inc. attendees and we can’t wait for the next one!

What’s The “New Facebook”?

After four major redesigns, Facebook is now pushing out a massive “make over” called The New Facebook.

Facebook’s new look will be more contemporary, more bright and less cluttered. Last year’s hottest trend, Dark Mode, will also be available to the users.

Groups will be prioritised and Groups Tab will be improved, so finding new groups will be much easier!

Although users cannot force the update, it is said that Facebook has begun giving some users access to the redesigned desktop version.

According to Pocket-Lint, “If you sign in to the Facebook website from your browser and receive this alert, you’ll need to consent to the trial. Facebook will then switch on the interface update and let you choose between a white background with bright icons or a dark mode. Facebook is also reportedly offering you the option to switch back to the old Facebook design at any time.”

Spigot, Inc. Travels to China for 5th Annual Genimous Party!

For those of you just tuning into the Spigot, Inc. blog – Spigot, Inc. is owned by a parent company in Beijing, China called Genimous Technologies. Every year a group from Spigot, Inc. (and our sister companies) are invited to make the long (and totally worth it) haul out to China and attend the party. The beginning of the party consists of a huge stage with a ton of live entertainment, recognition for outstanding players and just overall fun. 

The party takes place in Genimous headquarters. Visiting the HQ is definitely a unique experience! It is set in 400-year-old Palace that was built for the 24th son of the Emperor Kangxi, who is considered by historians to be one of the greatest emperors in the history of China.  The HQ palace consists of 5 courtyards surrounded by buildings – which have now been converted into offices, conference rooms and banquet halls. It is currently home to over 300 of our 900 employees. It has a fully operating restaurant and hotel onsite with 8 rooms (which guests are invited to stay in!) and they are all crammed with Ming and Qing dynasty furniture to keep with the traditional theme. Genimous took over the palace from the former China Club Beijing.

Not only do Spigot, Inc. employees get the opportunity to celebrate with every year with Genimous – it gives them an opportunity to go over yearly goals, improvements and structure for the upcoming year.

We have a great relationship with our parent company, and really appreciate the opportunities we get to travel and see other parts of the world! If you want to be a part of a global company that promotes team-work and travel – Spigot, Inc. would LOVE to speak with you!

The party was only supposed to last until 10pm, but in true Spigot, Inc. fashion – we all stayed much later! Several Spigot, Inc. employees made a vacation out of it and stayed at the Inn at Pelican Bay in Naples for the night!

The Spigot, Inc. holiday party was an amazing way to kick off the holiday season and the new year! It was extremely fun to get to know new employees better; as well as spend time with employees significant others and friends in their lives.

Spigot, Inc. judges FGCU Entrepreneurial Contest

Three Spigot, Inc. employees got the awesome opportunity yesterday to judge the FGCU Entrepreneurial contest in the Emergent Technology Institute Building. FGCU has an amazing program for young adults with a passion and drive to be an Entrepreneur called, The Runway Program. According to their website, The FGCU Runway Program is a free business incubator open to students and alumni that are accepted into the program. Currently located off campus at the FGCU Emergent Technologies Institute Building, participants have access to two 1,300 ft2 shared work spaces, computers, cameras, audio equipment, design and development software, and regular mentoring fromt heir expert faculty, staff, and community startup coaches.

Participants are required to regularly meet with assigned Runway Program Advisers to receive feedback on ideas and progress, in addition to setting goals towards launching their venture. The Runway Program follows the Lean Start-Up methodology. Participants identify and validate the existence of a problem or opportunity, and then develop solutions and a plan that they can test on real people. At the end of the 16-week program, student participants have the opportunity to pitch for equity-free seed funding to launch their businesses. 

The program has come to an end and all the students got put in different rooms for a “Shark Tank” style presentation. Spigot, Inc.’s Connor Grevel, Ben Tucker and Sean Henry sat in the judges seat and saw all kinds of creative business ideas. From Bio-degradable sunscreen, YouTube Channels, Positive rap artists, and online organizing tools to name a few. It was a great experience for our Spigot, Inc. employees and the students, especially students with advertising campaigns. Spigot, Inc. was able to not only understand their product, but give them a few pointers on how to better run traffic for their business.

Our involvement with FGCU, specifically the Entrepreneurial college has been extremely beneficial for both our business and their students. 1/4 of Spigot, Inc. employees are FGCU Alumni and we are looking forward to judging more contests and continuing to hire students!

Spigot, Inc. Mobile Team Celebrates Their Next Goal with a Visit from Kevin the Dog!

Spigot, Inc. loves celebrating small wins and goal benchmarks! Over a year ago the Spigot, Inc. Mobile Team was promised if they hit a certain number in revenue they would be able to get a visit from our Graphic Designer’s dog, Kevin (Yes, he has a human name). Kevin appears in the Mobile Team’s daily e-mail update, so it only made sense he come in and celebrate with the team! Kev brightened everyone’s day by sitting in meetings, rolling around the carpet, sitting at Spigot, Inc. employees desks and even eating lunch with everyone! The day he came in Spigot, Inc. happened to have Currie’s food truck catering lunch and they threw him some food from the window! 

Celebrating goals and wins is extremely important to Spigot, Inc.! Not only does it make employees feel appreciated, but it motivates them to continue to do the awesome work they are doing! We are extremely thankful for everyone that works here and the opportunity to celebrate in all different ways with one another! Stay tuned for our next celebration!
