It’s Our 10-Year Anniversary! – July 29, 2018.
Did you know that Metrik Marketing is a boutique agency located in Calgary, Alberta and has served clients globally for 10 years? The company was founded on 08/08/08 by Kita Eserve and we have celebrated Metrik Marketing’s anniversary by silently leaving behind Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) over the last decade. This year, we have decided to spill the tea about what we’ve been doing in order to amplify the effect and reach more people.
Here are some of the RAKs we have completed:
✓ Leaving coins in shopping carts
✓ Leaving bus tickets at bus stations
✓ Leaving coins in vending machines
✓ Leaving gas vouchers at random gas pumps
✓ Dropping off diapers at Calgary Health clinics
✓ Brought food to the homeless shelter
✓ Leaving diaper kits at random change tables
✓ Purchased lunch for a stranger
✓ Donated to Kiva.org
✓ Donated prepackaged food bank kits from the grocery store
For the next 10 days, we invite you to help us celebrate Metrik Marketing’s 10 year anniversary by posting a Random Act of Kindness (RAK) on social media!

Day 5 – Family Matters: Kindness Rocks – August 3, 2018
This week, we have encouraged our children to paint Kindness Rocks to give to other children at the playground as an extension to our random acts of kindness initiative. Family first is one of our core values. We understand unexpected events may arise with our family & try to be accommodating. We also have great clients who share in these values and occasionally may need to reschedule with us due to family circumstances. At Metrik Marketing, our hours are flexible to provide a positive work-life balance and to ensure that our families thrive. #metrik10rak #familyfirst #worklifebalance #family #love #happy #familygoals #socialgood #instagood #randomactofkindness #feelgoodfriday #kindnessmatters
Day 6 – Building Relationships – August 4, 2018
Some people call it small talk, but at Metrik Marketing we build relationships through networking. Most of our clients have discovered us through word of mouth or when we are simply chatting about what we do. To honour the importance of connecting with people, Metrik Marketing will be paying for free meals and coffees at your local Alberta drive-thru. #metrikmarketing #metrik10rak #payitforward #rightplaceattherighttime #smalltalk #networking #wordofmouth #kindnessmatters #080808 #inspirekindness

Day 8 – Always Be Learning – August 6, 2018
For today’s random act of kindness, Metrik Marketing will be taking backpacks filled with school supplies and donating them to less fortunate families. We are passionate about education and live by the motto “Always be learning”. We promote this outlook by working with several educational institutes to help further education & enrollment. Our fast changing online work environment means we must also maintain our education. Platforms like Google, Bing & Facebook require us to keep our certification up to date. Additionally, we schedule time for learning and attend both webinars & conferences. We regularly host Google #PartnersConnect events that focus on various industries. This helps keep our clients up to date with the latest & greatest while working with Google. #metrik10rak #metrikmarketing #payitforward #kindnessmatters #10years #080808 #inspirekindness #alwaysbelearning #googlepartner #bingaccreditedprofessional
Day 9 – Many Hands Make Light Work – August 7, 2018
Team building exercises are always a great way to build relationships amongst people. Recently a teammate and her sister gathered firewood at their campsite. At the same time, they replenished the woodpile for an elderly woman down the road who had difficulty walking on gravel. Working together in an act of kindness for an elderly lady was a rewarding experience.
At Metrik Marketing we value the importance of teamwork. Having different people with different skill sets to draw on allows us to keep sharp and stay ahead of the competition. On the flip side, a strong team continuously prevents anyone from dropping the ball. We provide assistance to our teammates whenever needed to ensure that our clients always walk away happy. #metrik10rak #metrikmarketing #teambuilding #kindnessmatters #080808 #inspirekindness #10thbirthday #10thanniversary #contest #10days
