Benefits of Working a Four-Day Work Week!

Posted by Courtney Wagner on Aug 14, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Monday through Friday, 8 hours a day. That is the standard work week for an average American. When looking for a job, people will consider looking for a company that has good benefits, hours, and culture. One way companies are starting to leverage themselves with good hours and a work-life balance is by switching to a 4 day work week. Instead of working 8 hours a day for 5 days a week they work 10 hours a day for 4 days a week, typically either having Monday or Friday off. Switching to a 4 day work week from a 5 day work week has shown numerous benefits including; employees not taking as much time off, work-life balance, increase productivity, and saving money altogether.

Stop Being Boring

Posted by Nicole Bistram on Jul 23, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Guess what.

 

No one will like you if you’re boring.

 

It’s harsh — but real.

 

The whole point of marketing is to make your products or services seem more appealing and purchase-worthy. How on earth are you planning to sell to people if you’re boring them to death?

What the Heck is SEO and How Can I Improve Mine?

Posted by Max Halberg on Jul 16, 2019 10:00:00 AM

What the heck is SEO? 

The most popular question I’m asked by clients, friends, and business associates is the following: “So, what the heck is SEO?” This term is thrown around so often in the marketing world that it’s almost taboo these days. I believe so much of the confusion regarding it lies in its ambiguity.

Creating a Voice Without Speaking

Posted by Nicole Bistram on Jun 25, 2019 10:00:00 AM

We’ve all heard the expression that actions speak louder than words. But what about when it comes to branding? 

Every brand has a core message – well, every successful brand, that is. By that, I don’t mean just a description of its products or services, but a voice, a style, a tone: something that consumers can relate to. You may not realize it, but most of your purchasing decisions are based on subconscious feelings. In fact, 90% of all buying choices made by anyone are influenced by underlying emotions or connections to a given brand. Do you still think words aren’t important?
