Missed this at the time, article in Giving City Austin about email deliverability, ahead of the +Salsa Labs Fuse session in April.

Congrats to all the winners! We're ridiculously happy about it.
 
We're thrilled to win three Pollies for our work!
PowerThru won 3 Pollie awards from the AAPC for our website and Twitter campaign work in 2014.

I am very excited about this. Three of the website projects I managed last year went on to win Reed awards last week! They were fun to do, and it's always good when great candidates and organizations get credit for their work.
 
Thank yous go out to everybody involved. We won 3 Reed awards (via +Campaigns & Elections) last week for our 2014 websites, but we couldn't have done it without our amazing team -- both PowerThru members and partners outside our firm -- and the incredible clients that we love to work for every day. #Reeds15

Beth Noden and Dave Knapp Ford are fantastic! They offered a great car at a fair price, the sales buying process was very smooth, and I am completely satisfied. Beth goes above and beyond - the dealership accidentally forgot floor mats, and she came to Ann Arbor to drop them off to me personally. Highly recommend.

They deliver healthy organic fruits and vegetables to my door, weekly, at affordable prices. They're great! Especially in the winter when the local farmers market is closed, they provide an invaluable service.

They did a fabulous job helping me get my mortgage in order to buy my condo. They were very fast and professional throughout the process, explained everything I needed to know, and I'm so glad I went with CFCU for my mortgage.

They installed a radon mitigation system in my condo this morning, and I am so pleased with their services. They were on time -- early, even! And very professional and helpful. Would highly recommend.

Thank you Home Buyer's Agent Ann Arbor for helping me buy my great condo! Laura was a real professional and wonderful to work with from start to finish. She helped me throughout the whole process (which went very smoothly), and thanks to her I have an excellent home and savings to boot for renovations. I am happy to recommend your services.
