6 Days, 11 1/2 Hours to launch!

Posted by Jen Harris on August 22, 2008

Wow, i can’t believe we are launching our MPC Community in less than a week!
At aproximently 3am on August 29th, the first of 4 email blasts will go out to the “5k”, the 5,000 current MPC Customers.  Wow.  Deep Breath!

Now that their is hope for a New Media/Social Media program at MPC, my next step is to really define who should blog for us internally, what their calendar should look like & how I should inforce motivate them to write a blog at least 1x/week.

But first, back to the finite details of the site.  So excited.

MPC Community to LAUNCH!!!!

Posted by Jen Harris on August 20, 2008

We are in shock & awe!  We are actually going to launch our new community to 5000 of our customers starting August 29th through September 1st.

Ali has been spearheading the training to all the sales teams & individuals with great success.   Of course there are always the typical comments of “it is just bad timing” & “I don’t want my customers talking to each other, they might say bad things!”  Well, if they are saying bad things, it is probably already happening, people don’t tend to bottle up issues like that.  We will now have a place to hear the conversations & act on them when needed.  I loved what Angela said yesterday…”it is time to knock down the walls & start communicating with our customers in a way that has never been done before at MPC.” 

Considering we are the last computer manufacturer to launch a community site, we are positive & hopeful of the success of the site.  Customers have been asking for one for almost 3 years now & the fact that we can finally deliver this to them with enthusiasm, I feel very confident in saying this is going to be a great moment in MPC history.

whoo hoooo!
