Haulix Weekly Update #100 – “Don’t you even know dignity when you see it?”

Hello and welcome to the 100th Haulix Weekly Update. Can you believe it? We have spent over two years writing this blog, and every Friday for the majority of it we have had these recaps. It’s amazing we haven’t repeated a Simpsons quote yet, to be honest. I thought that shtick would die early on, but so many of you recognized the quotes we just kept using them. Why fix what isn’t broken, right?

As I mentioned above, each and every weekend we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.


Work on our impending relaunch continues, but at this point we have no new information to share on the development front.

That said, we have begun planning a series of online learning sessions to help introduce clients, as well as members of the press, to the new version of Haulix. Signups for these courses will begin in early September.


The blog was very busy this week, but we don’t actually have many announcements to share. Our goal right now is to simply offer the best content we can while doing what we can to recruit new clients for Haulix. If you have yet to start your free 30-day trial of our promotional distribution platform and want to, please email james@haulix.com for details.

We have been messing around with more podcast stuff, but we’ll have more on that next week.
