Small Town Gets a Boost from theTwilight Craze by Issie Lapowsky

  • I’m already hating myself for posting about Twilight but the idea of product placement in books is really interesting to me. A lot of fans are going to the town where Twilight was written about.

Cool Company

Zappos

Zappos is in no way a small interesting company (I apologize beforehand). In fact its a HUGE company but they are still absolutely mind blowing. They are the 23rd best company to work for according to the Fortune 100 and they are known for their outstanding customer service. One story revolves around a customer calling Zappos because their hotel’s pizza delivery service had closed. The Zappos representative found pizza places nearby that were still open. Did I mention Zappos is an online shoe company? Now that’s amazing customer service and a very very cool company.
