Just about three years ago I was working on writing a book (never finished, and I’m glad that I didn’t). I wasn’t making much progress, so I decided that I needed a change of location. I went to some random coffee shop, checked in on Foursquare, and somehow stumbled upon a group of people who were “coworking.” The group is called Jelly Chicago, and I’ve been getting out of the house and coworking with them once a week ever since. It’s a social media success story, as is Loudpixel, a company started by two people I met at Jelly. Loudpixel is a Lansing, MI based (they moved there a couple years ago) “digital consultancy that works with companies and brands to deliver unbiased social media monitoring, measurement and insights research.”
Through a combination of technology and PR/social media knowhow, Loudpixel is able to deliver a range of services that help brands understand how people are interacting with them socially. These services include Monitoring and Engagement, Brand and Industry Insights, Unbiased Program Measurement, Social Data Infographics, and Custom Social Research. You can take a closer look at their work through a case study on Entrepreneurship Research and infographics on SOPA vs. Occupy Wall St, Facebook IPO Social Chatter, and Bank of America Debit Fee Social Reactions. You can dive a little deeper by reading the Loudpixel Blog. And if you do, you’ll notice their first post is about how they’re hiring a Social Media Research Assistant. It’s not a full-time position, but it’s still an awesome opportunity. They say they’re looking for someone in Lansing, but I know that they have people working in Baltimore, San Diego, Chicago, and Washington, DC, so there’s some level of flexibility/virtuality.
