Feeding the Content Machine: When You Think You Have Nothing to Write About

By Anya Ciecierski

Although this new age of content marketing suits me very well, there are still times when I long for the good old days of direct mail when I could drop the letters in the mailbox and have the satisfaction that the job was “done”.  Now, if I post on one blog, I could post on three more.

And Now a Word from our e-Newsletter Sponsor…Corporate Renaissance Group

By Jasmine McNellis

Corporate Renaissance Group (CRGroup), a global provider of management consulting services and business software solutions, will kick off its ‘i heart’ fundraising campaign to unite customers and partners in benefit of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Individuals and organizations that have worked with CRGroup, as well as those who have used CRG Solutions, are encouraged to participate by sharing their feedback. For every submission, CRGroup will donate $10 to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the campaign will commence on Friday, February 13th, 2015 and will run until October 31, 2015. In addition to a $10 donation made for each submission, CRGroup will hold monthly prize draws, as well a grand prize draw for a $250 Visa® gift card. Full details of the contest can be found at

“We decided to launch the ‘i heart’ fundraiser to unite our customer base – which has grown to over 4500 organizations around the world, and to support a great cause,” said Director of Marketing and Business Development, Doug Hum. For over 26 years CRGroup has been providing business management services and solutions to the global Microsoft® Dynamics™ community and organizations worldwide seeking practical and scalable solutions for common business challenges.

The ‘I heart’ campaign will also be featured at the Upcoming Microsoft Convergence 2015 Conference & Expo March 16-19 in Atlanta, GA. Attending CRGroup customers and partners, as well as other members of the Dynamics Community are invited to visit the CRGroup Booth #1427 to make their submission.

Each year, CRGroup selects a charity that aligns the vision and values of the company as well as its employees. Last year, to mark its silver anniversary, CRGroup made a cash donation to the Ottawa Network for Education (ONFE), the hub of a network of education and community partners committed to enriching public education in Ottawa.

“This year we decided to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation through a fun and interactive awareness campaign involving our clients and partners,” said CRGroup’s founder and president, Dr. Vijay Jog. “We are passionate about giving back to our community, and this year we are focusing on a health-related cause. I suspect that most – if not all – of our clients, partners and employees have been affected in some way by heart disease and stroke.”

“We are so thankful to Corporate Renaissance Group for organizing ‘i heart’,” said Melanie Lemieux, Area manager Ottawa Chapter from the Heart and Stroke Foundation. “Fundraisers like this are essential to support life-saving heart disease and stroke research that helps create more survivors.”
