As Director of Marketing Strategies, I spend my time looking at client results and defining why numbers are what they are. Conversion data for senior living clients comes from a complex combination of pay-per-click and retargeting, optimized landing pages and more.

Over the last years, I’ve also spent significant hours working towards multiple Google Partner certifications.

Yet when analyzing results and preparing new plans, I still guide our teams to leave room in every budget for a very non-digital marketing tactic:

Growing up, the town next to ours hosted the oldest 4th of July parade in the nation. It still does.

The roads in Bristol, RI, are marked not with yellow dividing lines but red-white-and-blue stripes. Houses are festooned with flags, banners, lights ... you name it. Parade-watchers arrive before dawn to set up their chairs along the route. There's even a giant, independence-themed Mr. Potato Head.

Bristol often feels like the HQ for Patriotism. The way "patriotism" is expressed has varied over the years. Patriotic feelings also vary with generations.

Here are Four Fast Facts Inspired by the "Fabulous Fourth."

I went to our local home improvement store this weekend to buy some paint. Let me tell you, that place was busy. Apparently, when the weather is rainy and chilly, what better time is it to repaint a room or two? That is what the six-other people at the paint desk and I thought. So here I am on Monday morning, still…
