As a digital marketer and inbound marketing aficionado, I have written more than a few blogs in my life. And I must say, there is nothing more frustrating than working really hard on a blog post only to see it's gotten two likes on Facebook and a handful of views on your site. Before I really started to understand inbound marketing, I would've considered that blog post a failure. We live in a world where we are surrounded by Buzzfeed and Upworthy and we have come to expect that our content isn't good unless it is being consumed by the masses and shared by thousands. Secretly (or not so secretly), we all want to be the next company that has a piece of content go viral.read more →
In a grand tradition stretching back to 2000, Pantone selects a new color each year that influences industries as diverse as fashion, home décor, graphic design and online marketing. “The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors,” claims Pantone on the page dedicated to the 2015 Color of the Year.
So how can we expect the new hue to impact business for the better? First by understanding the color, then knowing how it affects the consumer, and lastly finding the best ways to apply it.

At AdVision we live by 5 core principles, in fact, they were the very first things I learned on my first day. We strive for No BS, Gravitas, Measured Results, Fearlessness, and Staying Ahead of Curve. While all these principles are equally important and valued, the one that stuck out to me the most was the ability to stay ahead of the curve. It’s important in an industry that is so fast moving and constantly changing to make sure you’re always learning and bettering yourself. Not only for your own personal benefits of growth, but for your team’s success, and ultimately your company’s success.read more →
The holiday season is encroaching. As streets fill with hot deals of Buy One Get One Free with red ribbons around signs, as the springy scent of fresh green wreaths, ringing bells, ice skates and peppermint hot chocolates permeate the streets and Chanukah menorahs and Christmas carols share public attention, the time is now riper than ever for retailers to find creative ways to squeeze in a few more holiday shoppers. But keep in mind: although the holiday season is certainly a time to bring in a lot more business, this also means the competition between retailers for holiday shoppers’ attention is also getting tighter. In short, you have to figure out how to stand out.
The economy hasn’t been at its best this year, but with the word “holiday” around the corner, purse strings inevitably start to open up a little more generously for the next few months. For businesses, this season means one thing (other than spending time with loved ones): opportunity. If you want to catch up with, or beat the trend, you’ll need to start planning fast, and there’s no better way to do this than through online media. With websites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube now catching higher traffic than any sort of old-time advertising, there is a stronger market out there for companies to sell, and to sell with a single click of the mouse. It’s time to get creative in your methods, because shoppers too are getting smarter about finding ways to shortcut lines. With online shopping becoming almost as popular as “in-person” shopping, you’ll want to figure out how to tap into both trends, and catch every size and shape of shopper – from early bird to procrastinator. Here are some helpful inbound marketing tips to keep in mind that will help you boost your sales, by at least twenty percent:
