2014 Year in Review (Spoiler: It Was Awesome)
By Adam Bullock on January 2, 2015
We used the word 'kickass' to describe 2013. Well, how did we follow up a 'kickass' year?
With an awesome 2014!

Our AWESOME Clients
We can't overstate how much we appreciate our clients. They believe in us and we constantly strive to go above and beyond their expectations.
We sincerely thank each and everyone client that we've had the opportunity to work with, past and present. We look forward to continuing to achieve and exceed business goals!
Our AWESOME Group
We grew from three to five employees over the past year. Adam Bullock joined in March, and Jenna Forstrom hopped aboard in October. This has allowed us to become even more agile, turning around requests for clients in record time and has led to electrifying brainstorm sessions!
Our AWESOME Highlights of 2014
What If...? Conference Philadelphia
Kerry and Christian not only attended the What If...? Conference in Philadelphia, but both had an opportunity to present! Kerry presented her talk which was called What If We Could Fly at 30,000 Feet? (embedded below) and Christian held a workshop called SEO for Startups.
Actionable Blog Posts
We came STRONG this year! Here is a list of some of our favorites...
- Automate Social Media Success with IFTTT (If This Then That)
- 5 Words to Use on Your Website (and 5 Words to Avoid)
- Knowledge Graph optimization (or: Be a SERP thought leader)
- Commercials: The Ultimate Time Suck (Infographic)
A Focus on Visual
The entirety of the Internet transitioned into a much more visual space. We had the sincere pleasure of running several visual campaigns for our clients and saw the power of the visual medium! We can't wait to integrate visual concepts into our campaigns moving forward.
Supporting a Local Tech Movement
It's important to give back and support the community, and Christian and Adam took an opportunity to partner with the Innovation Partnership Zone (IPZ) in southwest Washington State to help support the local tech community. We look forward to more networking functions and opportunities to nurture the growth of tech in the Pacific Northwest!
They even put Christian and Adam in their partners picture (and if that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is...).
MKG Day in November 2014
