Talking Politics: Should Your Brand Step On The Field?

Talking Politics: Should Your Brand Step On The Field?

by |

There are three things we are told never to speak about at the dinner table: religion, politics, and the consistency of Grandma Jean’s meatloaf. Last night, during Super Bowl LI, at least one of those commandments was broken when brands took the field to get political on America’s biggest stage. It’s Monday afternoon; you’re already familiar with the commercials by now. You watched the spot Airbnb bought on Thursday (!) and just “threw together.” The one that showed people from different backgrounds (all Airbnb employees, BTW), of different shades, spreading a…

You’re late. We are rounding out January and you are waiting to start still putting the finishing touches on that integrated, comprehensive, all-encompassing 2017 marketing plan you promised your boss back when your Halloween candy was still fresh.

Happy Holidays from Overit

Happy Holidays from Overit

by |

The day in December when we release the official Overit holiday card is one of my most favorite days of the year. It’s a time when our misfits get to wish yours a very happy and healthy holiday season. When creativity and passion win out over billable hours and when everything comes up magic. This year, our holiday card is a play on the conversation we imagine many of our agency brothers and sisters have during this time of year (it’s not just us, right?); we hope you can relate and…

Safety Tips for Automated SEO Tools

Safety Tips for Automated SEO Tools

by |

Give me a chainsaw and I will very quickly put it down and back away. I’m no good with power tools; I shouldn’t be in the same room with something as potentially deadly as a chainsaw. Hand that same chainsaw to an expert, though? They’ll use it to make something like this: They’ll make art. Believe it or not, SEO tools aren’t much different, and they deserve the same respect.

Closing Keynote: Jim Louderback (#Pubcon)

by |

Last session of the day, last session of Pubcon Las Vegas 2016. The crowd is clapping for everyone involved. It’s been a great conference this year (and we also heard some major Google news this morning, which was pretty cool). We’re here to hear from Jim Louderback, currently working with Wochit (he also does a bunch of other awesome things). Jim has never been to Pubcon before! He can’t believe it (we can’t either). He’s excited to be the closing act, like the Rolling Stones usually is. Jim wants to…
