Jeremy recognized each of them for their outstanding personal contributions with a 2017 Spring Tech Summit Award. What’s amazing to think about […]

Lead Generation Business Funnel Concept

In a conversation yesterday with a large brokerage firm, we discussed a $250,000 online ad campaign that was directed at generating buyer leads.

The massive price increase caused them to rethink. What came out […]

by Marilyn Wilson on April 28, 2017

Change-same2-277x300

We’ve all been involved in those strategic planning sessions where you get locked in a room, hold hands, sing Kumbaya, feel really excited for about 3 days and then everyone goes back to doing everything the same old way they did before the session. They are a total waste of time. I call those sessions “Forced Family Fun”. They give strategic planning a bad name. Let’s talk about a way […]

Digital Designers are Killing the Content!

by Kevin Hawkins on April 27, 2017

Magnify Text

One of two things has happened. Either my eyesight is completely shot or magazines have somehow decided that 8-point font is legible. Unfortunately, it turns out my eyesight isn’t as good as it used to be, and just about every magazine I seem to pick up these days appears to be designed by a prima donna or don who is killing the content because it’s impossible to read. The hard […]
