Late to Twitter? A Primer on Jumping in NOW

Late to Twitter

Are you a late adopter of Twitter? Since Google announced plans to resume indexing Tweets in real-time searches, lots of people who have barely used (or never used) Twitter are rethinking it.

But figuring out how to think about Twitter can be overwhelming. There are tons of technical tips out there, but what should your goals be? Here’s a quick primer to help shape your thinking.

A jhP Retirement – We Love You Leslie

Today is the end of an era, folks. After 11 years at jhP, it’s Leslie Palace’s last day before she retires to garden, travel and send us postcards that make us a smidge (or more) jealous of her über-lucky travel companion. And so today, we hereby officially bestow the lovely Miss Leslie with jhPeep Emeritus Status, with all the rights and privileges that entails. Namely, appearances at future Beer:30s and other jhParties.

Google Analytics: Data Unleashed

Google Analytics Data Unleased

For many marketers, the initial foray into Google Analytics was having the IT department tag the company’s website with it. But if you stopped at this first step, you’re missing out on a huge amount of actionable data. Your IT department can tell you things like your page views per month, the most popular pages, the most common searches and the percentage of web traffic from mobile devices. But you’re probably still using only the basics of this amazing marketing tool.

If you want to use Google Analytics to help shape your strategy, you need to know what’s possible. So here’s a quick primer. Google Analytics can help you …

We’re still smiling from the fun at Saturday night’s ADDY Awards. The jhP crew showed up to high-five our buds from across the industry, tell funny stories and celebrate a great year in creativity.

Lunging into the Holiday Season, jhP Style

PumpedWeb

The holidays are nearly here, and we all know what that means: Hectic schedules! Skipping workouts! And (perhaps) a few too many holiday goodies? (But maybe we’re just speaking for ourselves.) That’s why this year, the jhP crew forged new bonds and felt the burn together in a new holiday celebration we called joyfully healthy People. (jhP – get it?) Continue Reading …

Three Hispanic Personas, Three Marketing Approaches

Like It or Not, Facebook Is Using Your ‘Likes’ to Its Advantage

814JHP075_FacebookLikesHeader_dv_WebWhat do the Kansas State Nurses Association, Liberal Nut Company, Paul Rudd and Marie Osmond have in common? They are all Pages that I have “Liked” on Facebook.

I recently discovered that I have liked 185 Facebook Pages, to be exact. (There are a number of Pages I have followed for work purposes, so my selection of liked Pages is going to be a little inflated with oddities.)

But when I looked through that list of Pages I liked, I couldn’t remember why or how I came to like many of them. Continue Reading …

Growing Up jhP

Nine years ago, an enthusiastic recent college grad started working at our front desk answering the phone. Over time, her energy and can-do attitude made us trust her with new responsibilities she was interested in. We gave her plenty of room and support to grow while she blazed a trail deep into the world of digital marketing.

With a competitive spirit and an eye to the future, Alissa Menke became the youngest shareholder jhP has had. She now leads our Digital Media team. While it’s easy for us to say what we love about Alissa, it was a nice surprise to discover her personal blog saying what she loves about us. After bribing her with cookies, Alissa agreed to let us share her post with you. Congrats on nine years, Alissa!

Almost double-digits

No, we didn’t just jump forward in time. Leo’s still five. (Thank goodness!)
The double-digits I’m referring to is my time at jhP. Last week I hit my nine-year anniversary mark, so I’ve officially embarked on the final year of my first decade of employment here.
