It’s been a while since my last entry but since then some major strides have been made in making Echo successful. First of all we took on a marketing director, the lovely Sufia Farha, to help with promoting the project. We also gained 3 new interns. One, Abid Anwar, just for marketing related work and two more (whom I have yet to meet – sorry guys) to assist with general administrative tasks. All and all it looks like the team is shaping up and we are going to be ready to make some great things happen come launch time.
We launched our first contest. Keeping with the social spirit of Echo we will be running one contest a week until our launch in September. Each contest will ask a question (this first one was – “where is your favorite place to chill?). To enter is simple. Like our page on facebook and answer the question. One random person in the first 50 responses will win the prize. We think this is a cool idea because (1) it’s fun to see what people say (2) it lets us reward our followers for having fun – something we always like to do. Stay posted
In other news we have been getting a lot of posts about when the app will launch. Right now the tentative date is September 1, however, we will not know for sure until we hear back from Apple. Stay posted though because we will surely fill everyone in the second we know.
