#AMAZING is when Social Media is Creative and It Counts!
How to make it count?
Why did we think the ALS Ice Bucket challenge is great? Because it was viral awareness. Yes, yes, everything you can say against it and the people in the videos… But the bottom line is, someone started something that caught on fire, and it worked. Few people today can say they have never heard about ALS. Now, the otherwise-unknown-terrible-disease has a very significant flow of funds for investigation, treatment and patient care. Whether you got sick of ALS videos or not, it was Amazing! There are people that are sick with ALS, except now, they’re not so alone.

But you don’t have to have walked the Red Carpet, be rich or run a country to make something count. Which is why we applaud the Children’s Hospital of Colorado. Yes, in our very own hometown, the hospital held a Frozen parody contest with Seacrest Studios. And a 14 year old patient, Daniel, wrote a funny, moving song to cheer on our team: Broncos Go!
Creative! Plus the staff, patients and visitors at the Children’s Hospital really got into it, and the end product is Amazing. Why? Once again, because you can watch the whole thing, be moved (even if you’re not an “Orange and Blue” Fan), it’s catchy “all the way…” AND it brings awareness. Plus there’s a closing invitation:

Google, this is what we call Quality Content, you have to agree!
Maybe my bold, underline, italics and emphasis on that keyword will help the spiders know I really mean it… lol!
Impressions Agency is an interesting crowd. We believe in excellence. We believe in writing about things that count. We believe in good information. We believe our clients have stuff that they want to get out there, and we help them reach you. And we also believe we can make a difference, so we choose to write about #Amazing things, like the ALS blog last week, Social Media for kids because we are against all types of bullying… And today, as we fan the Bronco passionate flame, like our client and friend Cari always does… We join in and encourage you to become a Bone Marrow donor. Because at the end of the day, when all the rest disappears, money is gone and your time is up, what did you leave behind? What’s your legacy? How did you use your time, you money and your influence? Think about it! What did your life build?
We also write about things that make us think and intrigue us, and that which we’re passionate about. We love our job. Well, who wouldn’t love to work from home, when home is an Oceanview rustic apartment in the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica? Esteban should tell us more about that in his next blog.
We’re updating our files, because you may find some of us to be interesting creatures, and our jobs are super cool. We’ll tell you more. We’ll share more. We’ll say controversial stuff, we promise. You can disagree, we like that! So keep coming for more…
