Best Photo of the Week: Knowing When to Ask for Marketing Help

While we take pride in trying to find the funniest stock photos to use in these short blogs, this poor, crying little baby is probably one of our favorites. Maybe it’s the mini-office furniture, the baby-sized suit and wig, or the fact that we’ve all had days when we feel like this little gal, but this photo is just too funny to pass up.

Best PR Advice: The Lost Art of Conversation

Technology makes our lives a million times easier, but it doesn’t capture the nuances that are a part of in-person communication. Because so much about the ways we communicate is non-verbal, there’s a distinct element of internet communication that lacks the subtleties that are present when we pick up the phone or meet someone for coffee to discuss business. McCauley Marketing’s emphasis is on open lines of communication with all of our clients.

Websites are more than just words on an internet page and corresponding pictures. While it may seem like that’s all there is to it, the truth is that the recipe for an effective website involves a lot of moving parts all working together for a positive consumer experience. Here we list the ingredients for a good website and how to bake one up!

Best Social Media Advice: Is Your Brand Social-Friendly?

There’s no denying that social media is the biggest boom in both every day and commercial communications. Making sure your brand is social media friendly involves more than just opening a Facebook account, but utilizing the myriad types of media available and making certain you emphasize quality over quantity with your posts.

Best Writing Advice: Gotcha Grammar: The Most Common Writing Mistakes Explained—Conquering the Apostrophe

Our first blog in the series debuted in December as we took on the ever-difficult apostrophe. With copywriters on hand, the apostrophe is a grammatical element near and dear to our hearts.
