The Washington Post reported that The Seminar Network, a non-profit organization founded and funded by billionaire Charles Koch, is being rebranded as Stand Together. Wisely, the organization acquired the brand match StandTogether.com domain name in advance of the rebranding.
A couple of months ago, I wanted to check on the hours of Make Meaning, a once popular and growing children’s shop where I previously took our daughter to make custom candles. Unfortunately, my Google searching revealed that the retail chain had shut all of its locations. The company had used MakeMeaning.com for its corporate website when it was operational.
GoDaddy is celebrating Mother’s Day today in the US with a temporary logo and branding change. In place of the standard GoDaddy logo on the company’s website and social media pages, GoDaddy created a special GoMommy logo.
Perhaps not surprisingly for trademark protection reasons, GoDaddy also owns GoMommy.com. If you visit GoMommy.com today, you can see how GoDaddy is creatively celebrating Moms with its GoMommy branding. In addition, visitors can create their own story to honor their own moms.
You may recall that GoDaddy did something similar on International Women’s Day with a temporary rebrand to GoWomen. I think the GoMommy branding is even more appropriate, and it is a fun way for GoDaddy to celebrate moms.
Happy Mother’s Day!
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a GoDaddy Auctions glitch that occurred when a network connection was lost as the time on an auction ran down. I was able to replicate the error by turning off my Internet connection shortly after placing a bid on an auction. Here’s what I wrote about the glitch:
If you have been trying to log in to your GoDaddy account this afternoon (or morning) and saw an error message, it’s not just you. When I tried to log in to my GoDaddy Auctions account on my desktop this afternoon, I was shown this error message: “Yikes! Something went wrong. Please, try again later.”
Andrew Allemann wrote about a GoDaddy Auctions “glitch” that caused a bidder to lose an auction that he thought he had won. I can see how he would be upset because the messaging does indicate that he won the auction despite the fact that he lost the auction.
I received the same email from the person who emailed Andrew, and I spoke with Joe Styler about it yesterday. Paul Nicks provided a comment to Andrew about what caused this situation.
