Roguebotic Partners with Proper on Cause Marketing Lab

In the last 45 days Proper has turned a vacant retail space into a collaborative creative lab and gallery space. Hosted a limited edition Screen printed poster show as a fund raiser to help recoup the cost of the build out in the space.  Hosted a Record store pop up shop with Satellite Records to build awareness for the WIDR/ Vine Neighborhood Association block party, Worked with D&W to donate bread to the hungry in Kalamazoo and worked with Urban Modern Hair to Provide free back to school haircuts to kids living in the local homeless shelter.

Roguebotic’s strategic partnership with the non profit Proper is to produce a discussion centered around social awareness. We believe that we live in a society where we are all so busy that we need a bit of a reminder to think about the larger picture; about our individual impact on our community. Did you do something proper today? That’s what we encourage you to ask.

Proper is an awareness campaign with a subtle cultural message, DO Something Proper. Our culture doesn’t need another cause clamoring for your attention we need encouragement to do something with the time and resources we have. Waiting for the world to change doesn’t make the world better. We have to take action and change it ourselves.

Cure Social Media Email Overload – Introducing Alerts Grader from Hubspot

If You are anything like me you have an email address (or three) that route to your mobile phone , you have at least one twitter account, linkedin, facebook, multiple sets of google alerts, etc….and the bottom line is all of the emails about new friends, followers, direct messages and more can be downright irritating or distracting. Worry no longer. A new free tool form the great folks at hubspot will filter all of that inbound info for you and corral it into daily digest format unless it hits a defined level of importance as defined by you and the ranking of the source of the alert 9as filtered by hubspot’s awesome grader system)

Alerts Grader is different from all of HubSpot’s other free tools because it isn’t a one-time analysis that runs metrics on your various web outposts and properties. Those are valuable too, but this unique tool is something you register for. It requires a bit more setup than the others, but if you’re into the realtime web — things like Google Alerts, Twitter, and LinkedIn — it could provide you with a valuable metrics-based service.

Alerts Grader can compress the most persistent Email alert messages into simple daily digests sorted by their HubSpot-prescribed grades.

“You’re letting HubSpot be the middleman in your alerts,” explained Chris Keller(— the RazrDude himself). “But in doing so, you can decide whether you want to receive them based on a threshold you set up.”

The tool also provides valuable LinkedIn account data and can grade the relevance and reliability of the sources behind your Google Alerts — BINGO!

The value is in combining all of these services.

Whether you’re an alerts fanatic or not, Alerts Grader is worth hearing about because it’s taking HubSpot’s technology for something like grading Twitter accounts and letting you filter it by way of HubSpot’s proven grading system.
