Maggie Bellville’s September Ad in GoMag
The wonders of being 100% digital never cease to amaze us. In early September, we happened to be watching the live show feed of the Select World from Amarillo, Texas on AQHA.com from our Kansas City, MO, offices. As we were putting the finishing touches on the September issue of our digital magazine, GoMag, Maggie Bellville of Atlanta, Georgia, was announced as the World Champion in 3 Year Old Gelding with Hez Sacred. Dasi (Maggie’s ad designer) was also watching the live feed from her office in Milan, Italy, a mere 5,000 miles away. As Maggie was walking to the center of the arena to accept her World Champion loot, we received an email from Dasi saying, “Maggie just won the World.” Our immediate reply was, “Can you update her September ad? It’s not too late.” Dasi responded with, “Yes, it will just take me a second.” Dasi emailed us an updated ad with the words “World Champion” and we were able to switch out Maggie’s page in the September issue. Due to our remarkably fast turn-around, the September issue of GoMag was published the following day for literally all the world to see…from Atlanta to Amarillo to Kansas City to Italy and back to Kansas City, all at the press of a button. Now that’s technology at its finest!
