Shwaag Meets Meet-Meme at SMAZ

September 13, 2010 did it again!  SMAZ 3 on September 9, 2010: a fantastic event filled with high energy people and high quality information.  Shwaag was proud to sponsor the event, where we gave away over 50 Shwaag items to lucky attendees.  One of the best parts of sponsoring an event like SMAZ is getting to meet so many Social Media people in real life.

So when Jonathan Brewer (aka @HouseOfBrew) turned in his red envelope and claimed his T-Shirt Shwaag from ASU Official Bookstores, we were happy to meet him.  But when he came back to chat later, we learned more about his new business Meet-Meme.  We thought it was such a cool business concept, we wanted to share it with all of you!  Check out this short video interview as Shwaag’s own @SOCJacki interviews @HouseOfBrew and @graphyxguy503 about the Super Cool ASU T-shirt he won, as well as this Super Cool Business!

Where is the Shwaag Now? Highlight: Tony Mast

July 10, 2010

At Shwaag, we’re all about paying it forward.  In fact, our whole business model is built around that very concept.  Most of the time, once a member Gets Shwaag’d, we release the item to the member.  We feel great, knowing we’ve made someone’s day.  And we expect nothing in return.  That’s why it’s always a pleasant surprise to see how the Shwaag Item is being used.  Where is the Shwaag Now?  In this case, we find Member Tony Mast with his Flip Ultra HD from Shwaag.  Let’s see how he’s used it to continue to pay it forward!

Valley PR Blog, Tyler Hurst, and Shwaag. Oh My!

May 1, 2010

When Tyler Hurst Got Shwaag’d with the Kindle, he got a little more than the Shwaag itself.  Linda Vandevrede from Valley PR Blog took notice.  On her quest to find the perfect eReader, she contacted Tyler to see how he was liking his new toy.  Tyler and Shwaag are both highlighted in her blog article AZ firm Shwaag touts Social Powered Generosity.

We love to see our members connect this way, both helping each other out in whatever ways they can.   For us, that’s like the whip cream on the sundae.  But to also get a cool write up in the process?  It’s the cherry on top!  Thanks Linda and Tyler for the Shwaag Luv!
