Ahem… A Poem… In Celebration of 7 Years

Ahem… A Poem… In Celebration of 7 Years

Dear Marvel Marketers… from a future Date

Congratulations on your 7 year birthday… Celebrate!

That went fast, or so it’s easy now to proclaim,

But I know we really remember every brick and stone we laid

We remember all the friends along the way

Those who cheered or simply listened to what we had to say

And wow what amazing employees joined along the way

And much #gratitude for them every single day

And sometimes their work leaves little to say

For it is inspires us all even today

And #gratitude for the clients who trusted us early on

To help their digital transformation from here to beyond

And #gratitude to our industry friends and partners for their support

Who always remember us in their amazing industry efforts

And all Superheroes battle villains from time to time

But never did it disrupt the journey or beauty of the climb

And #gratitude to those who let us help through #MPACT

When we were the ones gaining through service… that’s a fact.

And #gratitude for 7 years of lessons learned

And #gratitude for 7 years of badges earned

And #gratitude for 7 years of opportunities to give back

And #gratitude of 7 years of remembering that important fact

And let’s not forget the #gratitude for courage to swing big

And let’s not forget the fortitude and required grit

And let’s take a minute to reflect on our world tour… 

San Mateo, Austin, Belfast… Stay tuned for more

Let’s celebrate our amazing Pioneers

Without whom there would be no reason for cheers

Here is to Team Purple and the Marketo Nation

Here is to Engagio, and congrats on the acquisition

Let’s not forget Scott’s incredible Martech Stack

That’s kept us all busy… and  all 7 years at that

And then among all this celebration, let’s be true

That all great success has loss, too

#Gratitude for the sacrifices made by others

During pandemics and hopefully no others

Thank you to the front line helpers and the bravery

You gave us all strength in a major way

And do not despair on what may come

The Great Pause gave us lessons granted only to some

We learned to stop and take a breath

We learned to soften every step

We learned how heroes emerge

Almost the minute we felt submerged 

Some sewed masks as their superpower

Some worked every waking hour

Some helped neighbors and the elderly

Some took to educating everybody

But we saw most choose hope over despair

And we saw love, honesty and care

And so we have #gratitude for success even with difficulty

And #gratitude that we know the importance of humility

And the next 7 years will be better than the first

And our goals give us a special kind of thirst

Of hope and growth that lets us make and MPACT

And of #gratitude and passion so we can give back

And after we have a big old slice of cake 

And after we take the time to celebrate… 

We hope this success on all of you

Because you really can’t do a description justice, in true

So here is to shared success and cheers

And here is to Marvel Marketers and 7 years.

10,000 Green Circles Are Providing Hope Where It Has Been Forgotten

10,000 Green Circles Are Providing Hope Where It Has Been Forgotten

Here at Marvel Marketers, we want our work to make an impact that reaches far beyond marketing, beyond technology, beyond ourselves, and beyond the world. That’s why we founded our non-profit foundation, Mpact, in 2017.

Over these last few years, we’ve have joined forces to make a Mpact on the people and communities who need it most. This year our Mpact mission is to “Remind Others of Hope When It Is Forgotten.” 

Little did we know how true that theme would ring in 2020.

Superhero-Sized Wins – The Stevie® Awards

Superhero-Sized Wins – The Stevie® Awards

When our CEO, Maneeza Aminy, founded Marvel Marketers in 2013, she did so with five specific values in mind:

  • Be Accountable
  • Own It
  • Figure It Out
  • Make It Excellent
  • Make an Impact

As the company has grown, so has the emphasis on these core values. They govern everything our superheroes do in their daily work. These five values make Marvel Marketers a leader in the industry, a trusted partner to our clients, a contributor to the greater good, a great place to build a career, and allow us to win each and every day.

“You can win in lots of ways,” Maneeza explained at the end of 2019. “You can give to others, you can build careers, you can make clients successful.”

Making an Mpact – You Don’t Need a Cape to be a Real-Life Superhero

Making an Mpact – You Don’t Need a Cape to be a Real-Life Superhero

It’s very easy to get wrapped up in the day-to-day stresses of your life. We’re all guilty of it. But on July 25th, our superheroes had a chance to step out of our normal daily lives and truly make an impact on some of the people who need it most.

And they made a huge impact on us, too.

An Attitude of Gratitude

An Attitude of Gratitude

I have spent a lot of time studying Joy and Happiness. I studied them analytically when I taught Economics for 12 years, and I study them constantly as part of my personal journey through life.  I don’t know what attracts me so much to the topics, but I am very grateful for it.

When I started Marvel Marketers, immediately, one of our underlying philosophies became to maintain an attitude of gratitude.  It was important that we do this, not just as a philosophical exercise, but that we live our intent.

I have been lucky to know the ROI (hehe) of gratitude as a fundamental truth.  For those of you who have not had such luck, here is a fantastic collection of no fewer than 26 studies which show you the science and benefits of gratitude.  If you like videos, here is a great < 5 Minute Video.

While I believe every day should be Thanksgiving, I am still very happy there is a single day dedicated for all of us to take a minute and be grateful.  I want to take advantage of this upcoming day and share with you all we are thankful for at MM.

Donating Blood – There are Lots of Reasons to Become Someone’s Superhero

In the time it takes you to read this sentence, someone in America will need blood. Whether it’s a car accident victim or a cancer patient who needs transfusions throughout his treatment, there is a very strong need for blood across the country.

Because of this need, our superheroes decided to take action. Our non-profit foundation, Mpact, will be a Community Partner at the Oakland A’s Blood Drive on August 26, 2018.

(Not in the Bay Area? Join our team of real-life superheroes by pledging your support to the online blood drive we’re hosting with the Red Cross, Sleeves Up.)

So, “Why so serious?” Why a formal foundation?

Why Marketing Automation Will Never be Easy

Marketing Automation today is experiencing the Facebook Effect, with everyone comparing their life (or in this case, their instance) to the polished, finished results of everyone else.

But in reality, the work behind those results and the day-to-day activities it took to get to that point might not be so pretty. To succeed in Marketing Automation, marketers need to take a step (or five) back to look at its foundation to form a proper strategy. Continue reading →
