Email filters have become extremely effective at parsing what they believe to be important. They are equally effective at hiding what should consume less of our attention. As someone who receives hundreds of emails a day at work, I am eternally grateful. As a digital marketer, I am not pleased.
This summer when my older son was home from college, we all found ourselves in the car with my younger son who was behind the wheel armed with his learner’s permit. As the car stopped, my older son proceeded to provide a mock Yelp review of the driver and the passenger experience. It was hilarious. But it made me...
You’ve heard it before—a smart digital marketing plan can play an important role in awareness advertising. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Through our recent 2016 Changing Pet Ownership Study, we uncovered generational insights among Millennial, Gen X and Boomer pet owners.

When I walked into Trone Brand Energy (TBE) in January for the first day of my internship in Account Planning, I was nervous, excited and optimistic. Would this advertising agency in High Point, NC be a good fit? Would I get to work on diverse accounts and be a part of the company culture?
GenZers are fluent in a sort of visual vocabulary—a sophisticated short hand in their Snapchat-Instagram-Whisper-world that minimizes reading and maximizes their time.
