One of Hanson’s core values is “stay curious,” so we’ve been talking to fellow Hansonites about the words of wisdom they might today give to their past selves. Today we’re talking to Dave Rodriguez, Director of Front End Development.
Here at Hanson, we work in digital every day. So as you may have guessed, many of us have set our sights on tech-related items this Christmas. What made our list?
“People don’t buy cars from buildings. They buy from people. Use social media to humanize your brand.” —Mary Henige, Director of Social Media for General Motors. That’s just one of the main themes I took away from Eastern Michigan University’s Search Marketing Workshop on November 7: the importance of humanizing both search and social campaigns.
So much has changed in my life from when I attended Eastern Michigan, a place that set me on my current path. Returning there always holds a lot of emotion and memories. That’s why being asked to speak on November 7 at The Search Marketing Workshop, a conference that has been formed there over the past four years (starting from just one class that I was lucky enough to be a part of six years ago) was a little surreal. I was honored to be considered and am always looking for a way to give back to current Eastern Michigan students.
As you may or may not know, we’ve been tracking the usage of all the iOS apps we develop in house to complement the information Apple shares with developers. We report these numbers every quarter to help clients make informed decisions about the apps they’re planning, and to contribute to the conversations happening in the development community. Our Q3 2014 stats are now in.

If you were to look back on the start of your career, what words of wisdom you would give to your future self? Since one of Hanson’s core values is “stay curious,” we’ve been asking ourselves that same question. We invited a few Hansonites to reflect back to the start of their careers and reveal some lessons learned, including Video Production Specialist Ben Eddings, Account Director Sue Woten-Schultz, and Connection Strategist Chris Kujawski. Today our conversation is with Amy Shrewsbery, Senior Account Manager.
Now that most businesses have upgraded their Google Analytics accounts to Universal Analytics and have enhanced their profiles to capture demographic data, the question is, how can this data help you?
Individual achievement behind the creation of today’s top websites is important to be recognized. That’s what the Web Marketing Association believes, founded in 1997 to help “set a high standard for internet marketing and web development.” Each year, the Web Marketing Association produces the WebAwards, the longest running annual competition in which sites are awarded for overall excellence in web development. For the 2014 WebAwards, Hanson is delighted to announce that two of our own client partners are among the winners.
To complement the information Apple shares with developers, Hanson tracks the usage of all the iOS apps we develop in house. We report these numbers every quarter to help clients make informed decisions about the apps they’re planning, and to contribute to the conversations happening in the development community — and our Q2 2014 stats are now in.
