Top 49ers 2014
We wondered what it would be like to go viral with Alaska Business Monthly’s Top 49ers, this year. We don’t want to crash our cloud; however, we would like a gazillion hits on our website. We want people to find out about this year’s Top 49ers and we wouldn’t mind having a million followers trending #Top49ers on our twitter feed. We’d like more friends, too. After all, who doesn’t need more friends? We are hoping to have a few thousand friends on our Facebook page liking this year’s Top 49ers announcement and congratulating all the Alaskan-owned companies that made the list.
We’ll need your help to accomplish this lofty goal. So when you read this, please tweet #Top49ers and let the world know if your company is one of the Top 49ers, or if your company has ever been one of the Top 49ers, or if you’ve ever done business with any Top 49ers, or if your company aspires to be one of the Top 49ers. While you’re at it, be sure to follow us on twitter (twitter.com/AKBusinessMonth) and like us on Facebook (facebook.com/AKBusinessMonth). And, while you are advancing #Top49ers on social media, go ahead and add us to your circle on Google+ (plus.google.com/+AlaskaBusinessMonthlyAnchorage/posts), pin it on Pinterest (not sure if we’re set up on that yet but if you are go for it), and connect and endorse us on LinkedIn. The mobility of information sharing is seemingly endless with all the social media avenues and apps.
After the luncheon on the first of October we will activate the following link on our website: akbizmag.com/#Top49ers and that will be the announcement of the 2014 Alaska Business Monthly Top 49ers. Social media share it until it goes viral and add your hashtag. Make your business a part of this record-setting goal of generating the most hits ever.
Speaking of records, we set one with the October 2014 issue at 204 pages. It is the largest magazine we’ve ever published and the team has done an exceptional job putting it together. Enjoy.
