Tax Day, Not Doomsday

It’s Tax Day! …Which may mean a variety of things.

Tax Day may not be a source of stress for those who got their taxes done early, but what about for those who waited until the last minute? Here’s an article by Forbes that outlines the process some may have gone through this past weekend.

By the looks of things, the volume of posts in the past week related to doing taxes early or last minute are almost the same. There are about 15,500 posts related to doing taxes early compared to around 16,700 related to doing taxes in the last minute.

Generally, it seems like slightly more people did their taxes right before the deadline instead of doing them early.

Sports fans might be “sleepless in Seattle,” and for good reason too.

Recently, Seattle has been in the sports spotlight (Super Bowl Champs!) and the Mariners are looking to keep up the hustle. Especially with the addition of Robinson Cano, the prospects for this team are high, and expectations even higher.

Besides having an already solid roster this season, the M’s attracted a lot of attention by signing Robinson Cano (arguably the top free agent on the market) for $240 million earlier this winter. Four months later, Cano made his debut in Seattle with the home opener versus the Los Angeles Angels.

Whether it was Sim Bhullar of New Mexico State or Mamadou Ndiaye of the UC Irvine Anteaters, spectators of the ongoing NCAA basketball tournament got the chance to see some “big boys” play in the paint this year.

Besides these giants, there were some “big” players off the court as well.

In what seems like the spirit of the bracket, Warren Buffett, business extraordinaire and owner of Berkshire Hathaway, agreed to back the billion dollar bracket challenge sponsored by Quicken Loans.

The challenge was that whoever correctly predicted all the wins of the tournament would win $1 billion. I say was, because at this point there are zero brackets that qualify. Read more…

March has long been considered a time of great change and growth. March signals the coming of spring and, after the abysmal winter griping much of the country this year, never has spring been more welcome. For much of the US population, however, March can only mean one thing – the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament, otherwise known as March Madness.

To many sports fans, myself included, March Madness represents the purest form of any sports playoffs and an opportunity to witness some of the greatest sports moments of the year. Perhaps the best part of March Madness, however, are the many office pools, brackets, and predictions that come as a result of this tradition. This is a time of the year when the average cubicle dweller can demonstrate his or her sports related prowess and, should they win their bracket, lord it over their coworkers for the next year and possibly take home a little bit of cash at the same time.

Everyone can use more time in their day. The added challenge of keeping up with the fast-changing world of social media makes for action-packed, eat-lunch-at-your-desk kind of days. Our latest product update includes some time savers and short-cuts to help our clients be more productive and maybe go out to lunch once in a while. New features include:

  • Faster, repeatable campaign analysis
  • Improved sorting options
  • New trend chart viewing options
  • Additional common categories for deeper analysis and segmentation

1I think one feature that marketers will love is the ability to name and save your campaign dates and then reuse these campaign dates over and over for analysis.  Now there is no need to remember specific dates for each marketing campaign or initiative. The campaign name helps you easily find the conversations and insights that you are looking for. Once the campaign date or dates are saved, just select the one you need from the menu.  Now it’s easy to jump between campaigns with different dates.  And you can easily edit and manage the dates as needed.

Schedule a demo and we can show you how to use this useful new feature and many other time savers.
