What's next for you?

As we enter the final week of class and move to the finish, I have to wonder what's next for you? Many of you got a good dose of Digital Marketing this semester with our ADV 420 course. Many of you seem like natural digital marketers.

So what will you do next? How will you take what you learned to make the world a better place?

Give me a question or two you would like to ask them and I can submit in advance. This is a great opportunity. I also encourage you to bring your resume and dress for success, as you can land a job on this trip!


How can you make an impact?

Being a student is great. It's an important part of your life. And I have to ask, how are you making an impact now? 

Sometimes students feel they have to wait till they graduate and become a professional to make an impact. But that's not true. Even as a student you can make this world a better place. It's part of your job.

So I challenge you. This week. Today. Now. Make a difference. Do something positive that helps others - not just you.

Summer 2018 Goals

OK, the ultimate summer class is here with ADV 420. As part of the class you have to participate and comment on the blog. As everyone knows this is the ultimate summer class.

So I have to ask. What are your summer goals? Make them creative and good. And I look forward to reading all your great work this semester!

Getting into the Habit of Crafting Compelling Content

Blogs have been popular for over a decade now. While the traditional "blog" may have peaked around 2008 many companies use some form of blogging in their marketing efforts. They may call it something other than a blog-- articles, news, content marketing, etc... but it's still blogging.

Software like WordPress has made it easy to set up a blog. Simply install the software required to start blogging used to require an expert and maybe a couple hours of effort. Now, most website hosting companies offer one-click installs that take minutes at most.

The Importance of Website Links

Website links are so ubiquitous that it's easy to overlook their importance. Most websites have dozens if not hundreds of links -- sometimes within a single page.

Links are the primary method which we navigate the web. Even if you're performing a web search it's a link that you click on to visit a site and then a series of links as you explore the site.

Links are the reason the web exists in the first place. The founder of the web Sir Tim Berners-Lee wanted a method for sharing and interlinking research documents, so he invented HTML -- the code used to assemble web pages.
