Posted by Matt Carney under News

It’s been a year of headlines, debuts, photos, videos, and big events for QuiBids! Thanks, as always, to our awesome customers for shopping with us. We promise to push hard into 2013 and make QuiBids the best online retail auction the world’s ever seen!

But for now, shortly before we jump into 2013, let’s take a little stroll down memory lane to see just how far we’ve come along, starting in…

January

Our fearless CEO started off the year by giving an interview at the State Chamber of Oklahoma’s Business Roundtable.

You might also recall that we auctioned off a Disney World vacation package — one lucky QuiBidder and three people dear to him/her got to spend a couple days roaming the world’s most awesome amusement park!

February

We shared the love with Children International, and then went viral with this awesome photo of a storm forming over our offices in Oklahoma City, taken by our own social media specialist Blake Brown!

March

We promised you guys some mystery auctions … but it turned out just to be an elaborate April Fool’s Day prank.

Another very lucky QuiBidder won a cruise to the Bahamaswe went down to Austin for South By Southwest, and we started auctioning off the new iPad!

April

Did you submit an entry in our unboxing video contest? The winner got an iPad. Meanwhile, we debuted our Facebook Timeline and a new game, Color Capture. We were also honored in April by the Oklahoma City Journal Record newspaper as one of the state’s Innovators of the Year!

May

We helped out the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma by sponsoring a deserving family’s shopping spree at an Oklahoma City-area Homeland store and by sponsoring one of their school pantries!

We also rolled out five brand-new QuiBids Badges for you to earn!

June

okcBIZ magazine named QuiBids Oklahoma’s third-best small company to work for. And more importantly, we improved the site immensely with a full-scale redesign.

Check back in later this week when we look back on the second half of our awesome 2012!
