Bloom celebrates a decade of building B2B relationships
We were founded at the time of the Great Recession, and a decade later, amid a global pandemic and national unrest, we considered holding off on our 10-year birthday celebration. But it is never a bad time to thank the people who made the first 10 years possible.
In addition to a sincere email campaign and retrospective video, we will keep the good vibes going with a series of 10-year themed birthday gifts, including 10 B2B design tips, $10 Gift cards, and 10 hours of production support with any new project. Because so many of our marketing colleagues have too long a to-do list and too little budget – and if history has taught us anything – one small project can lead to a lasting relationship.
