Mark Stevens Among Top LinkedIn Influencers

MSCO CEO and founder Mark Stevens now ranks in the top 2% of all profiles viewed on LinkedIn and#3 in his peer group of influencers according to LinkedIn’s own metrics. This meteoric rise has come on the heels of a torrid stretch of Mark writing viral posts on LinkedIn nearly every day in the past month (some of which we have rebroadcast here). This has translated to more visibility for Mark’s profile and MSCO in general, propelled by a meteoric 13% rise in 30 days.

The results really show that content marketing is king when it comes to social media management. You need to show you know what you’re talking about and get people talking about it in turn. That’s what’s been so successful for us on LinkedIn, not just for Mark, but for our clients as well.

Creatives Rejoice Over New MSCO Game Table

Game Table

Last week, the MSCO staff got the well deserved present of a game table. Right on the main floor, this three-in-one table serves as a central gathering place for us to unwind and spend a little bonding time over non-client work. Also, the relaxing atmosphere such a game table lends to the office allows our creative team to come up with stronger strategies. That’s why you have forward thinking companies like Apple and Google provide these amenities to their employees.

Above, that’s me losing badly to our new designer Ligia while playing ping pong. Absent from her resume was her career as a semi pro your ping pong star, apparently. I’m still undefeated in billiards though.
