2013 EatLafayette Campaign Continues With AT&T Support
(Lafayette, La.) - AT&T, a leading provider of worldwide telecommunications services, renewed its sponsorship for the 2013 EatLafayette™ by Lafayette Travel campaign. AT&T has supported the campaign for multiple years. The campaign that promotes Lafayette, Louisiana’s locally owned restaurants runs through September 2 and touts the Fly Lafayette Club as its title sponsor.
“Lafayette’s culture and our corporate culture can be traced back for decades,” said Donna Byrne, regional director for AT&T Louisiana. “The EatLafayette campaign highlights how special this area is through its cuisine. The culture and the history of the community are what make the food so special. Many of the recipes in our restaurants are generations old.”
AT&T’s history is so rich that one can trace its roots back to the first man who invented the first practical telephone in 1876, Alexander Graham Bell. AT&T is responsible for the first transatlantic phone call in 1927. Other creations that AT&T scientists are credited for are the first transistor, the solar cell, and the C++ programming language.
AT&T builds technical innovations for the benefit of its customers. It implements next-generation technologies and network advancements. AT&T’s creates and designs new global networks, processes, and service platforms that allow the best performance for its customers.
With the nation’s largest 4G network covering over 292 million people, AT&T provides an abundant amount of services, from its revolutionary smartphones to its next-generation TV services.
“Want to tell your friends about this year’s EatLafayette campaign?” said Byrne. “Use your smartphone and computer through our network to share the website or stay connected through social media. This really helps promote the restaurants.”
“EatLafayette and AT&T share long-standing core values: not only do they support the community they reside in, but they consider themselves to be members of the community as well,” said Byrne. “As a philanthropic company, it only makes sense for AT&T to sponsor a campaign that supports locally-owned restaurants.”
EatLafayette by Lafayette Travel brought to you by the Fly Lafayette Club, has celebrated Lafayette’s cuisine for nine years. This year’s edition of the campaign markets Lafayette, Louisiana’s one-of-a-kind locally owned restaurants signed up 73 participants, a record number.

From Social Media Today:
Make sure your employees know where your emergency updates will be posted and who will be posting them.
Put someone in charge of going through your social media account to halt and/or reschedule ALL of your scheduled posts. If you have clients or sponsors whose scheduled posts or releases were scheduled during the emergency period, that person needs to alert your clients about the change and inform them of the rescheduled deployment date and time.
Crisis management is just part of the reputation and community management we execute on a regular basis.
Emergency preparedness has been on our minds lately with the 2013 Hurricane Season already experiencing its third named storm.
Click here to learn how to prepare your office and data for an emergency such as a hurricane from Total Network Technologies.
It's important not only to prepare internally, but also to prepare your staff for any external questions and customer service.
Here's what we suggest you do:
- Let your clients know how they can get in touch with you in case of an emergency BEFORE they need that information.
- Inform your clients as to where they can find your company updates.
- Social media sites can be hacked very easily. For your company updates, make the home for your updates be your website. This lends credibility. Plan to use your social media networks to reach your customers and fans and spread your message.
- The space on your website for emergency updates should be easily accessible and user-friendly.
- Make sure all of your employees know answers to common customer service questions and know where to direct customers if they receive a more complex question.
- During recent events and emergencies, Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites have proven to be the place where people go first for updates. In the event of a company emergency, it is important that your all employees can monitor complaints and stay informed and knowledgeable to contain the possibility of chaos. You want your company to be a source of peace of mind and factual, relevant information. Employee preparation will make this happen.
There are many more things you can do that best fit your business model, industry, and community culture.
