By Randy Mitchell   This is the story of an accomplished professional. She always had interesting points to make about her industry, company, and other important topics. People respected her opinions both inside and outside of her firm. They honored her with glowing terms, like “subject matter expert,” “mentor” and “innovator.”   But one fateful morning, she transformed from being a thought leader into a dweeb. How did this travesty happen?   The sad truth is she gave a dweebinar and the whole industry was watching.   At this point, you’re probably asking, “What is a dweebinar? And why should I care?”   Both good questions.   First answer: A dweebinar is a webinar that goes from being informative to intolerable because

by Kathryn Brill, Social Media and Content Marketing Specialist It’s a problem every marketer has faced at least once: how do we figure out where our traffic is coming from? Without this vital information, it’s difficult to tell which marketing programs are working, what audience you’re reaching, or where more lead generation efforts might be needed. Whether you’re serving links in ads you buy, in emails you send, or in social media posts, you may be getting traffic without knowing what’s driving it. However, pinpointing traffic sources can feel daunting. Especially for smaller marketing teams without the resources for data experts on staff, the world of digital media tracking and attribution seems

by Jeff Andrews, VP Client Services HAL 9000, your Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic computer, is here. Well, actually, it’s Alexa, Siri, and if you still watch SNL, Echo Silver.

What’s the recipe for award-winning digital media? Is it viral status, a huge production budget—or simply good quality work that meets client needs?

by Randy Mitchell, Creative Director Did you ever have superhero aspirations when you were younger? I certainly did. I always wanted to be the Flash. There were two reasons for this longing. First, I thought his lightning bolt logo was pretty cool. Second, I was a chubby kid who invariably finished last in any race. So far, I have not made it into the superhero pantheon. But I am happy to say that I do work with some true marketing superheroes on a daily basis. I call this brave assembly the Omnichannel Marketing Avengers and they have the power to save any campaign. Just like the vaunted Avengers of Marvel comic book and movie

Making strategic marketing choices gets complicated. Sometimes you need some reinforcement that you’re on the right track.

(State of Inbound Marketing) It often feels very difficult to generate leads using social media, since it can be a casual environment and many users follow companies without ever interacting with them.

What if you could shore up your own

In recent years, many B2B marketers have come to the sad realization that the effectiveness of marketing tactics such as print ads and trade shows is fading fast. Rather than paying for pricey print ads that their customers will probably never see, many B2B marketers have begun moving their promotions online to generate new sales leads. According to a 2013 study by the Business Marketing Association and Omobono, digital marketing now accounts for 42% of B2B marketing expenditures. But, digital marketing success requires more than an attractive website. You also have to make sure that customers and prospects can find your company online. That’s where search engine optimization (SEO) comes in. If you’re
