As I mentioned in a post last week, we have a lot in store for 2008. We’re starting off with two important announcements today, and we’re excited to share both of them with you.
First, we’re excited for the start of a promotional partnership with Celebrations.com, a new site in Beta from 1-800-Flowers. Celebrations is a site full of great party ideas– from experts and the community –for everything from birthday parties to tailgating. Right now they are running a contest, giving away a dream super bowl party to the contest entrant that submits the most creative party idea. If you are a MyPunchbowl user, we hope you’ll be inspired by ideas from the Celebrations community. We encourage you to check out the site, submit your ideas, and then head back to MyPunchbowl for your Super Bowl party planning needs.
We’re thrilled about working with Celebrations.com and the folks at 1-800-Flowers. I’ll have more to say about our “budding” relationship in future posts.
Second, we’re happy to announce “Share on Facebook” support within MyPunchbowl.com. This useful feature enables MyPunchbowl users to easily publicize their MyPunchbowl events on Facebook. From MyPunchbowl, Facebook users can choose to either post the event on their profile or send the event as a message to their Facebook friends. It’s really the best of both worlds: use the sophisticated event-planning features on MyPunchbowl to plan your event or party and then publish to Facebook to share it with your social network. We encourage you to create an account on MyPunchbowl.com and give our new “Share on Facebook” a try for your next event.
These two announcements further our goal to offer the most sophisticated event and party planning website while partnering with the best companies in the world. We hope you share our excitement.
