For those of you finding this post looking for how to respond to the “How’s work?” question, here’s my thought.

A few weeks ago, Nicholas Scalice from Earnworthy & The Growth Marketing Toolbox podcast messaged me and asked me if I wanted to be on his podcast again.

It’s a great network of inbound/online/startup marketers and I use it daily to get ideas, help others, and connect with cool folks in the industry.

We’re calling it LeadCast, and we take historical weather data and historical website traffic data and use it to predict your future traffic. Check it out!
The local marketing Meetup crowd is really solid in Raleigh. I’ve met some awesome people and made some great friends through the Raleigh SEO Meetup, Triangle Marketing Club Meetup, Beer and SEO Meetup, and a few smaller ones. I was honored when the guys at the Raleigh SEO Meetup asked me to present on Google Analytics–here is the Meetup link and my slideshare of the presentation!
A big focus of mine at Coalmarch has been building models of the lawn and pest control industries and using those models in the sales process to predict future traffic. Here’s a blog post I wrote about that process!
I had the opportunity to write a post for the BackOffice blog this month! BackOffice is a piece of human resources software that Coalmarch is creating, and we’re writing some fresh content for it with the goal of providing some helpful content for business owners.
