Posted by Drew Conklin on Wed, May 2, 2018 @ 14:05 PM

Many organizations, from "mom and pop" to large national companies, have at some point thought about or implemented an SEM (Search Engine Marketing) campaign for their business. Some of these implementations led to great results, while others have fallen flat on their back.

Posted by Drew Conklin on Mon, Jun 26, 2017 @ 11:06 AM

When we launch a new campaign for a client, it is based on research and evaluation of all the different media channels available to us to promote their brand. This is the case when we launched an 11-week campaign for our client, Family Farm & Home (FFH), in early Spring.

Transparency, Fraud and our in-house Trading Desk

Posted by Drew Conklin on Wed, Mar 29, 2017 @ 09:03 AM

We live in a world of "buzzwords." Everywhere we turn, a new one seems to pop up and it is hard to keep track of all of them. While the terms "transparency" and "fraud" are not technically buzzwords, they feel that way in the world of Digital Media. We hate to use buzzwords without defining them, so here we go. By transparency, we mean being open and honest with our clients - from where their money is being spent, to our fees, vendor contracts, full disclosure of all digital reporting, and more. We will define fraud a little later.

Benefits of Traditional Media: Cable Television

Posted by Drew Conklin on Thu, Sep 8, 2016 @ 15:09 PM

As mentioned in our blog on Broadcast Television, we will be discussing Cable Television as a separate Traditional Media option. So with that, here is our continuing look into Traditional Media options and the benefits of each. 

When we think about Television in general, it is just Television; a mix of both Broadcast and Cable. However, when it comes to purchasing, we need to think about them separately.
