Will I achieve the PrimeCables sit standing desk CHALLENGE?

 

#SitStandDeskChallenge.jpg

It was 12:59 am and I was fully awake. All I had in front of me was the blank laptop screen and a table full of scrap paper with various ideas and notes written on them….

I have to admit, it was unusual that my table was this messy. I mean, yeah, I always have to drink lots of coffee to keep me alive, too much caffeine would make anyone a little nausea, rather than feeling inspirational. I had to agree that I was totally run out of ideas and had nothing else in me to give. That is where this story comes from.

Just in case if you don't know what sit stand desk is, here you go!
Just in case if you don’t know what sit stand desk is, here you go!

Everything dated back to last month when my boss had a “special” meeting with me. At first glance, I thought it was a meeting to talk about all my hard works and so forth. In fact, it wasn’t. The idea behind the meeting was very simple. Just like what every boss wants, he wanted to push up the sit standing desk sales which is never really a bad idea. Of course! I mean, who doesn’t?

When I heard this from my boss, my heart began pumping. I felt a little bit excitement from my tiny little heart, with a little breath in my lungs, I just simply accepted the challenge with my bitter smile, I was completely spaced out at the moment, probably lack of sleep, or maybe a little bit hangover. I didn’t really know what I had accepted though back to the time, the only thing that I remembered is when I was keep nodding and nothing else, I suddenly felt like a tragic hero, the hero is about to sacrifice his life, the hero that doesn’t know where he is belong to and the hero…..”what about let’s make the goal to increase the sit stand desk sales revenue triple by the end of Nov ?” My boss asked politely, it made me came back from the reality, and yeah, this time is going to be our legendary “sit standing desk” AKA model MT101 & ET101 series. “Damn, you must not be kidding” I murmured.This was the time where I couldn’t feel my balls anymore. Yeah, it was THAT serious!

 

So, after I received this challenge, I started to implement resources into all the channels we had. I made sure that the marketing budget I had was sufficient, the organic content that we had was helpful for our customers, and that the sit standing desk price that we had was Canada’s lowest guaranteed. For the month of October, the sale units increased way more than the average. I can’t name all the great records that we hit during the month of October. Despite the massive success, it still was not enough for the triple sales goal that my boss assigned. You know, that is why it’s called “triple”. Because ONLY the sky is our limit, nope, my limit actually.

Needless to say, November has finally arrived and thus so does my task due day. I felt like the countdown bell has finally come to an end, and since most of the campaign budget was relocated to Black Friday SALE / Cyber Monday related campaigns, I did not really have much budget left. As you can see, this was pretty much a last minute call. I had nothing to do but to use my brain power and come up with a solid plan to bring sales that could impress literally EVERYONE.

Oops, I meant if my plan succeeds… OR, I don’t know what’s coming after! After hours of contemplating, with lots of caffeine flowing in my body and lots of diagrams plus even my own impressive hand-made drawing, I finally come out with the conclusion for what our sit standing desk campaign should look like! It must be:

sit stand desk campaign

1)         Zero budget or nearly zero since I do not have much left.
2)         Super simple and easy to execute, most of my colleagues went on vacations.
3)         The campaign has to be special!
4)         This campaign will be awesome!

 

I am so impressed that it took hours of my time to come out with such a BRILLIANT conclusion.

Pro tips for marketers: If you are completely out of ideas and you are really desperated, it’s better for you to either take a BIG nap or dump, because let’s face it – most of our great ideas come from the toilet.

Without hesitation, I came up with a few hashtags & concepts for this campaign. Now the problem lay on which name should I choose? This was rather a tough question, so I brought my idea paper to my cat and let my cute kitties to choose. Why – because it’s authentic and non-biased.

You will be always be surprised by how the little furs impress you in life! How did I do it – just simply talked to my kitties and asked him if he / she if they like the idea. You can do this yourself. If your cat answers “meow”, then it should be work. That’s my rule. On the other hand, if you ask and the cat scratches you or they walk away, then it means they probably hate the idea so you might want to do away with it. For this campaign I had to spend like an hour talking to cats like an idiot in the middle of night when everyone was sleeping. That said though, I have tried this method a couple of times in the past and it’s always been successful. So this has become my life saver!

sit stand desk campaign 2.jpg

After a quick decision making process with my cats’ amazing assistance (and scratching of course), I chose the campaign name as “#SitStandDeskChallenge”. To me, this is very straight-forward. At the same time, it’s highly correlated to the topic that we are promoting, which is a healthier and ergonomic way to “sit less & stand more” (click here for our animated video) in your office environment.

The idea here is to make this campaign as raw as possible, without any useless, artificial or deceptive contents like other marketing companies may do. We don’t agree with those practices so our idea is very simple. In every hour and half, we send out notifications to stand up, or to sit down, or any of the other things you may hear in the office. This is a campaign meant to be fun and with positive intent to raise awareness of the benefits of sit-stand working!

Note: We had also tried the KONAMI code to play with this sit stand desk, which is ↑↑↓↓←→←→BA. In this process, our product specialist ran to me and just wanted me to stop it. I had no choice but to cancel this plan. (What a shame)

I believe that with this repetitive notification plan that we push on social media platforms, people will start to realize that we can shift from the traditional idea to a new modern ergonomic way of working. Today, this is how an office should work. At the same time, people can bring office fun talk into their work place. Working does not require a person to be rigid. In fact, a healthier posture during long hours of work will enhance productivity & creativity!

An example like this:
#SitStandDeskChallenge1.jpg

Or this:

sit stand desk campaign 3.jpg

Even this ?????

sit stand desk campaign 4.jpg

To straighten the idea a bit, we even thought about creating an “achievement” unlock. For example, once you stand for a certain amount of hours. I guess we will be starting with the purpose of informing customer in a more informal and humorous matter. Let’s say if this concept works, then more fun & rewards can be introduced in the future. If this doesn’t work, I will admit fact for being a marketing loser and go home to cry. LOL.

Did you Know the Sitting Disease is Real – Consider sit standing solution

SittingIsTheNewSmoking1.jpg

The average Canadian spends a significant portion of their day sitting through a haze of work. Beyond this, the time spent commuting involves sitting. And, when you come home after work, you probably like to sit down to eat at the kitchen table and then go sit down on the couch for some TV.

 

These things are all normal but the hard to admit truth of the matter is that there are some major health consequences that come with this extensive sitting. ‘Sitting disease’ as some researchers are calling it includes significant increases in risk of diabetes, heart disease, and/or early death. Even though the term ‘sitting disease’ admittedly is a little laugh-inducing, the consequences are very real. Because there is no immediate pain in that moment, it’s easy to ignore the fact that there are some huge health risks associated with spending 75 percent of our days in a sitting or reclined position.

JustStandInfoGraphicV4.png

We are trained from a young age to believe that sitting is just a part of our day. Students spend several hours sitting in school. Today, they play video games, watch TV, and go places and sit, and it’s perfectly normal. When we grow up though, the consequences of this constant sitting start to show in ‘sitting disease’. The results of ‘sitting disease’, or prolonged sitting, is a 112 percent increase in risk of developing diabetes, a 147 percent increase in risk of having a heart attack or stroke, a 49 percent increase in risk of premature death, and a 90 percent increase in likelihood that should a heart attack or stroke occur, it would be fatal. It doesn’t matter what age, sex, culture, or income bracket you hang out. Sitting disease is real and it affects Canadians everywhere.

 

There is a solution though. No one is going to up and quit their sitting activities. We get that. We all work. We commute. We sit when we are relaxing. That’s ok. The solution though involves work. When you are working sitting at your desk, your mind is activated but your body is not. So the solution is easy – to active the body. How we do that is through a sit stand desk, which is an adjustable desk that allows you to sit when you want to stand and stand when you want to stand, all the while getting work done. A standing desk such as these can help in engaging Canadians’ bodies, reducing the health risks involved in sitting disease, and even put an end to that cringe-inducing term.

 

Don’t subject your body to prolonged sitting. Do something about it. ‘Sitting disease’ doesn’t sound like something that should be associated with Canadian desk workers. As science continues to uncover the negative effects of sitting, don’t wait. Buy a sit-stand desk to get active again!

 

Top 4 Advantages of Buying an Ergonomic Foot Rest

medium_d8705-Kensington-010-85896-56152-Foot-Rests-Kensington-SoleSaver-Footrest.jpg

 

Buying an ergonomic sit-stand desk, for many people, gets them started on their journey towards a more active lifestyle. Learning how to treat your back, shoulders, and neck right in an office environment oftentimes leaves the legs and feet forgotten about.

 

It’s important that your feet and legs are being properly supported. The next step towards having a more ergonomic, physically engaging environment is to have a height-adjustable ergonomic free-standing foot rest platform to add. Here are some advantages to buying an ergonomic foot rest and why it’s something that you might want to consider.

 

Advantage #1 – For Shorter People, a Footrest is a Great Addition

Smaller people can benefit from a footrest, to get the full extent of benefits from ergonomic seating. To get the maximum benefit from an ergonomic chair, you need your feet flat on the floor. If you’re on the shorter side height-wise, this can be tough. An adjustable foot rest lets a shorter person keep their feet flat, ensuring their weight is properly distributed and that your body is comfortable.

Advantage #2 – A Foot Rest reduces Pressure on your Legs

Reducing pressure on your legs helps to prevent blood clots related to the deep vein thrombosis, relieves pressure on the lower back, and decreases swelling and varicose veins. If you are prone to any discomfort sitting or circulation problems when seated for an extended period, choosing a foot rest helps to cure those issues.

Advantage #3 – It Encourages Active Sitting

A foot rest tends to encourage movement below the waist, helping to keep those legs engaged. Many users tend to sit and rock themselves using a foot rest to keep blood flowing and the body moving. In terms of standing at a sit-stand desk, a foot rest also provides you an opportunity to work one leg at a time while resting the other on the platform.

 

Advantage #4 – It Comes Height-Adjustable

The fact that you can change its height means that you can match it the way you like it with your sit-stand desk and ergonomic chair setup. While you’re still getting used to your ergonomic office setup, a footrest can help. On average, a footrest allows a person to stand up to 30 percent longer, maximizing the health benefits of standing while working.

Choosing a foot rest that is comfortable, heavy duty, and height-adjustable is key to getting the most out of your purchase. Design it specifically for your feet’s comfort. Prime Cables’ ergonomic free-standing foot rest platform comes equipped with six height settings, a padded surface to prevent slipping, all-steel construction, and a soft-grip handle making it easy to carry.

How to Choose the Right Ergonomic and Adjustable Desk

UPDATE:

Check here for for complete guide of how to choose the sit standing height adjustable desk riser

 

So you’re looking to optimize your workspace in an ergonomic way. Most people buy an ergonomic chair and leave it there. The problem with this is that, even with an ergonomic chair, this does not optimize your body in the way that is possible when combined with an ergonomic, height adjustable desk.

 

More than 50 percent of office workers are equipped with the wrong ergonomic setup for their needs. How to choose the right ergonomic and adjustable desk begins with learning more about what an ergonomic desk is and the reason for it.

 

Desk ergonomics is all about adjusting the setup of one’s desk to match the way that we naturally use our bodies. For example, it is not natural to be setup looking down at a 45-degree angle for hours on end at our laptop screens, nor is it a natural position for our bodies to have both arms propped up on top of a desk. Bodies are made to move, vary that movement, and are not meant to remain in awkward, still positions for long periods of time.
Choosing the right ergonomic and adjustable desk begins with figuring out the size of what you are looking for. Nobody wants a desk too small for what they wish to use it for. That just ends up in clutter. Next, you want to make sure that the height is adjustable to allow you to be able to type without having to reach for it in an awkward way. If you decide to purchase an ergonomic and adjustable desk with a keyboard tray, you should be able to sit comfortably here with your feet flat and knees bent at ninety degrees.

 

There are plenty of ergonomic options in the marketplace as it relates to chairs and desks but the biggest advantage of having an adjustable desk is that it allows a user to modify their position as they see fit. If you want to stand for a period of time while working, raising the height of the desk to meet a standing position is achievable with an ergonomic, adjustable desk. If you want to sit cross-legged on the floor, some desks are adjustable to that extent. When you just want to be set up in a seated position, you can do this as well.

 

Anyone seeking to avoid the aches and pains of desk life, such as neck and back pain, desk ergonomics must be a key consideration moving forward when choosing the next addition to your office.
