Posted by Gregg Alexander on Jan 14, 2020 1:30:00 PM

The term Agile Marketing is by no means a new one within the business world. The odds are that even if you aren't actively using an Agile approach to your business, you've heard of it in some way, shape, or form over the last few years. It was born in the world of software development, coming to life in IT departments as they worked quickly to address issues, test their methods, and weigh the results.

Social Media Influencers: Finding and tracking the Right Influence

Posted by Alli Sisson on Jan 7, 2020 11:30:00 AM

While it’s still unsure how Instagram’s latest like policy will change the face of influencer marketing, we think it’s safe the say that the marketing niche certainly won’t be going anywhere. So much so, that by 2020, influencer marketing is projected to be a $10 billion industry. That’s billion. With a “B.” With so much focus (and budget) on influencer marketing, you’d assume that most marketers can track what the ROI of their influencers are. But you know what they say about assumptions.

What’s in a Like? The Good and Bad of Instagram’s New Policy

Posted by Alli Sisson on Dec 31, 2019 11:30:00 AM

Let's be real for a second—2019 has been wild. Kanye started a church. Starbucks made it into Game of Thrones. The nerds nearly stormed Area 51. Fully grown adults bought and wore fanny packs. And Instagram announced it would be making "Likes" invisible on its platform.

Posted by Alli Sisson on Dec 24, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Over the last few years, we've watched influencer marketing explode like a mac truck in a Van Damme movie. The past year was the biggest yet, indicating nothing but a continual climb for the marketing channel in the future.

3 Tools to Help Your Digital Marketing Explode with Infographics

Posted by Katie Pierce on Dec 17, 2019 9:00:00 AM

When it comes to marketing, we all know that infographics are essential. It's like knowing that you need a chain on a bike to make it go. Visuals should be a significant part of your marketing arsenal, sitting holstered, and waiting to be deployed at any time.

7 Sources to Get in The Mood for Design

Posted by Alexa Audet on Dec 10, 2019 9:00:00 AM

Since our beginnings, man has been a fan of the pump-up. Waring tribes mixed warpaint to smear on their faces and smatter horse’s haunches. Pre-game rituals fuel the moment of execution, whether you are Brian Urlacher, would eat two chocolate chip cookies (while listening to country music) before each game, or Frida Kahlo, who liked to garden before touching paint to paper. The Ecuadorian national soccer team uses a witch doctor before their matches, and Michael Phelps listens to EDM after his breakfast of eggs, oatmeal, and four energy shakes.

Designing to fit your medium-device differences and responsive strategies for your website

Posted by Shane Niederklein on Dec 3, 2019 1:00:00 PM

Fewer things are more likely to make a perfectly reasonable human being hurl their device across the room faster than an aggravating, user-unfriendly experience. With our proclivity to change devices to look at particular sites in different ways, responsive design can make or break the experience for the user. And, while you may expect that every site you come into contact with should work breezily on any device you own, it’s unfortunately not the case. There are still quite a few websites out there in their unresponsive state, which could use an upgrade to their experience for the sake of mobile devices everywhere.

Cowboys and Contractors Need Marketing Too

Posted by Gregg Alexander on Nov 26, 2019 9:00:00 AM

Across the country, there is a unique class of folks that stand out as anomalies from the digitized masses. They aren't hard to recognize. Often, they're using aging tech or a non-smartphone, they would rather get dirt under their fingernails than be on social media and have little to no idea what a meme is. Often referred to in the marketing world by the kind euphemism of late adopters, this group of hard-working, rarely online folks typically has some of the sparsest resources when it comes to their marketing, design, and demand generation. 

They tend to occupy more trade, agricultural, and specialized skill forms of business, be it guiding, farming, construction, charter services, commercial supply, or more industrial-focused work. For many of these people, they have the "been doing it this way for 30 years, and it's worked well for me" byline, and business typically comes from a real word of mouth route. But, like all good things, the days may be numbered for continuing this way in a world going ever faster and faster toward the interconnection of things. Today we're looking at why every single individual, even these late adopters, can benefit from a strong marketing game.

Lettering and Illustration: The Return Hand Drawn Design

Posted by Katie Pierce on Nov 19, 2019 9:00:00 AM

As long as people have kept written records, they have been using intricate designs to accent their words. The art of beautiful penmanship and decorative letterforms are prevalent in Arabic, Japanese, and Chinese art. It doesn't take a Master Penmen to look at our country's Declaration of Independence or the Constitution to see the unique brilliance of hand-drawn excellence. While ink and quill are not as commonplace today, pen and ink and Apple Pencil and tablet have become the new mediums for that hand-lettered touch.
