Newsletter Archives

My, how things have changed since our last newsletter in thespring. The skies are grey, temperatures are dropping, our beloved street lizards have gone into hibernation and all of the Influencers have survived the blistering heat of another New Orleans summer. Fall is a time of transition, and we couldn’t be happier to announce the reestablishment of the Search Influence newsletter, a monthly screed chock-full of things you should know relating to social media, SEO, website establishment and promoting your online presence. Watch this space for tips, hints and useful info that can help you grow your brand and engage your fans. Without further ado, let’s dive in!

Search Influence News

As many of you know, we’ve relocated to a gorgeous set of new offices on bustling Oak Street, New Orleans — our name is on the door and everything! We’ve been settled in for a few months now and the company couldn’t be better. Special thanks to Tru Burger for their top-notch veggie burgers and peanut butter-banana milkshakes, local coffeeshops Z’otz Cafe and Rue de la Course for keeping us well-caffeinated, and downstairs watering hole Oak for superb after-work hangouts and an exquisitely curated wine list.

In other news, we’re proud to announce that Influencer Colette Bennett placed third in SEM Group’s 2nd Annual Bad Ass SEO Guest Blogging Contest for her piece “But I Don’t Have Enough Klout: How To Be Good At Social Media By Not Being A Jerk.” Congratulations to Colette and to our other Influencers who participated! You can find her award-winning writing right here at Search Influence, where she creates a wide array of content for our valued clients and serves as one of our most prolific bloggers as well.
