7. Branding a Business From Start to Finish

Branding is one of those overused terms people sometimes don’t really understand. It sounds complicated but it’s not really. When you think of Coca-Cola, Target, Starbucks, or Lexus, certain characteristics come to mind, their reputation. Another word for reputation is brand. It’s a valuable asset of any company. When you see it in action it’s powerful, but getting there takes time and attention to every touchpoint. -- Dan Alton

8.  Seeking Adventure for All Generations

Growing up, I loved to camp and was around those that also loved to camp. Now that I’m reaching my 30s and have an expanded friend base, not everybody loves this concept of the great outdoors (whaaat??). Partnering with Little Arrow on their website design and development explored the compromising option of glamping, which then led to diving into how they actually connect with younger generations.  -- Meghan Echols

9.  A Newbie’s Guide to Google Analytics

When I first started using Google Analytics (GA), I felt like I would never get it. Start small by clicking through each section. This will help you learn where the data you seek is located while familiarizing yourself with the language Google uses. GA is full of information and just a few clicks provides insight into how your user interacts with your site and how you can use that information to make improvements. -- Kelly Volpe
