TWEET #FRIENDINNEED FOR WHAT YOU NEED
Update: Due to popular demand, we are extending our BlogHer 2012 campaign! Saturday BlogHer attendees, follow @consmr on Twitter and tell us what you need from the grocery or drugstore. Include #friendinneed and #blogher12 in tweet. Members of our team will be on hand to take requests from 10am - 3pm! Check out what @pamelamaynard @centsiblelife @binghott @ColoradoMom and more had to say about Consmr at BlogHer 2012.
This weekend the BlogHer 2012 Conference is going down in our home city of New York. There will be panels, discussions, meetups, coffee dates, workshops, happy hours, parties, networking opportunities, serendipitous run-ins with friends in the Hilton Hotel lobby.
It’s gonna be epic. It’s gonna be exhausting. That’s where we come in.
Forgot your toothbrush? We’ll get you one that’s highly rated on Consmr. Hungry between panels, and need a pick-me-up? Tweet #friendinneed with your request and we’ll grab your favorite drink or snack from the grocery store. Overdid the garlic during lunch? Tweet #friendinneed, and, like any good one, we’ll be there with Altoids.
Tweet your request for a drugstore or grocery product TODAY, August 3rd between 7am - 5pm and include the hashtag #friendinneed
The sky’s the limit in terms of what you can request: travel size shampoo, spearmint flavored gum, ice cream, something for that headache… We’ll pick up the item and determine where and when to meet you via DM. We’ll be in Consmr t-shirts, so you can spot us easily.
If you’re curious about Consmr, get our free iPhone app! Consmr lets you rate + review health, grocery, beauty and baby products simply by pointing your iPhone at a barcode. We’d love for you to scan the barcode on what we get for you and leave a quick review of the product, but there’s no pressure to do so.
Between Consmr co-founder Ryan and myself, we attend a lot of events. We travel for conferences, speak on panels, host our own gatherings. We love it, but we understand it takes a lot out of you. So let us help you enjoy your time in the city by taking the errand out of your day. Oh, and we’re alums of a prominent restaurant guide, so tweet @amycao or @ryenyc if you need some delicious food recommendations. Welcome to New York City!

ain’t no party like a consmr party
We’ve been keeping busy here at Consmr HQ planning our first party to celebrate the launch of our grocery + drugstore product review app! We went on an epic supermarket run today to stock up on beers and ice cream and ice pops (hey, tis the season…).
We’re especially excited to team up with our friends Tamy and Felipe who are opening a new restaurant called COMODO next week! Comodo means “comfortably” in Spanish, and it’s exactly the feeling that their Latin American cooking and wonderful hospitality evokes. The couple will be sharing an exclusive preview of their menu at our event. The RSVP list is now full, but email us at email@example.com if you’re keen to join the fun on Thursday.
Comodo, 58 MacDougal Street, New York City (646) 580-3866. Support their launch on Kickstarter!
