Oh So Social!

I’ve been spending time trying to figure out how to utilize all of our social media networks to better communicate with our customers, vendors, friends and partners. Fact is, our biggest challenge we face is making sure we keep them all up to date. While Facebook may seem to be the end-all be-all social media network, there is so much more out there. After re-evaulating our collection of social media networks it became apparent to me that we really need to organize it all and make it accessible from one place and that we will. In the meantime, I thought it might be beneficial for me to share all of them with you here. Check it out and expect more soon. Be sure to bookmark them and if you are not already a friend, follower or subscriber or, I encourage you to do so. We do our best to keep our communication informative, fun, relevant and up-to-date! – Roland @ACK

Let’s Make This One ALL About You

Since I joined the ACK Team in September of 2010, I was immediately handed over the responsibility of maintaining this blog. I have since written and published over 60 articles and co-edited just as many by fellow ACK employees and guest authors. That’s a lot of content! Fact is, I’ve never considered myself much of a writer and quite frankly a paddlesports expert but I tried my best to remain focused on topics that I felt customers wanted to read about. I recently spent some time going through our archives and began to think to myself, is this really the case?

Naturally, I became curious so I’ve decided to open the floor to our audience with this; as we roll into 2012, what do you want to see more of and what can we do to generally improve this blog? Don’t worry, we won’t be offended because ultimately this is about you, not us, so don’t be shy, comment below — we want to know!
