Online Data Every Minute

Very rarely does a day go by that most people do not jump on the Internet for something. Whether on a phone, tablet, or desktop, you’re adding to the data digitally generated. 

The cloud software company, Domo, created a chart that shows an overview of the data consumed every digital minute in 2021, such as YouTube users streaming 694,444 hours of video. View the infographic to learn more online metrics from our increasingly data-driven world. 


Take Note

The podcast listening audience has grown exponentially this year. In fact, according to Nielsen’s survey, lighter listeners, people who usually listen one to three times a month, have increased 39% since 2018.

Marketing Techniques For Email Copy 

Email marketing is a two-part battle. And if you win the first part – getting someone to open your email - it doesn’t mean you’ve won yet. As stated by the content marketing agency, Brafton, “attention is our scarcest resource, so we reserve it for only the most interest or important slices of data.” Read three techniques on writing engaging email copy to capture your audience’s attention. 

Guide To HTML Link Codes

Hyperlinks are a fabulous tool to direct audiences to content within your website, as well as to targeted locations online. When implemented correctly, HTML links can boost your SEO campaigns and improve the user experience.
