Carbondale-based Blue Tent Marketing won a “Marketing Sherpa” award for an email campaign template it put together for Railey Mountain Lake Vacations.
The template was designed specifically to increase click-through rates from people using mobile devices such as iPhones and iPads. The marketing campaign consisted of Blue Tent sending four emails between June and September 2012.
The award, Blue Tent’s fourth, was presented at the Marketing Sherpa Email Summit in Las Vegas.
Two local radio stations were honored recently by the Colorado Broadcasters Association.
KSPN radio, based in Aspen, received six first-place honors, including “best news/talk team” for a medium-sized market. Hosts David Bach and Ryan Koster beat out other broadcasters from Vail, Avon, Breckenridge, Steamboat, Durango, Loveland, and others.
KSPN’s other honors included “best imaging” for its coverage of X Games 2012, “best station promotion/ marketing campaign” for coverage of the JAS Labor Day Festival, “best use of new media” for the KSPN Spotlight Session, “best radio giveaway” and “best advertisement.”
KDNK radio’s news staff was honored with a “certificate of merit” for its three-part series “What Happened to Morgan Ingram?” The in-depth feature highlighted the questions and legal issues surrounding the death of a local 20-year-old woman. KDNK reporter Edward Williams produced the award-winning series with KDNK news director, Eric Skalac. KDNK’s news stories are archived at kdnk.org. The station is an NPR affiliate based in Carbondale.
The Aspen Camp of the Deaf & Hard of Hearing has hired David (DJ) Monahan as its program coordinator. The new position is designed to further the mission of Aspen Camp through the planning and delivery of program activities and events while working with staff, parents of campers and community members.
Monahan has a masters of engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology. After working at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division in Pennsylvania, he found he missed interaction with the deaf community and left to work with the Rocky Mountain Deaf School in Denver. Monahan is already a favorite with Aspen Camp participants having worked as a volunteer on winter ski and snowboard programs. Look for Monahan’s new programs and the launch of the new low ropes course this spring.
