Did you know that using multiple images on an Instagram post boosts your engagement? 🚀 . Yep it’s true! And yet 68.2% of posts on Instagram use just one image! 😳 . So if you upload several images for your post to make a carousel (like this one - swipe left to see the other graphics) then, according to Quintly, your post will get on average 24.9% more interactions! 📈 . I know - amazing isn’t it? And yet only 14% of posts on Instagram are carousel posts 😳 . So what do you think? Is it time to build carousel images into your Instagram strategy? 🤓 . . . . #socialmediamarketing #socialmediatips #socialmediamanager #socialmediamarketingtips #socialmediatraining #socialmediatrainer #socialmediaconsulting #socialmediaconsultant #socialmediastrategy #socialmediahelp #socialmediaforbusiness #socialmediacoach #socialmediaexpert #SocialMedia101 #socialmediaforbusiness #marketinghelp #marketingadvice #instagramtips #instagramtrainer #instagramtraining #contentmarketing #Copywriting #smallbusinesstips #smallbusinessowners #smallbiz #shemeansbusiness #southampton #portsmouth #hampshire #digitalmum

According to ReturnPath, only 79 percent of permission-based emails make it to the desired recipient’s inbox. That means 21 percent of emails are being sent to the infamous spam folder. This is discouraging for those of us who spend hours crafting the perfect email campaigns, only to be disappointed by our open and click-through rates.⠀ .⠀ But don't give up hope. Check out our blog for 17 ways to maximize your email deliverability, avoid the spam folder, and stay out of legal trouble: https://www.keyholemarketing.us/17-ways-keep-emails-out-of-the-spam-folder.⠀ .⠀ #smallbusiness #colorado #coloradosprings #denver #email #emails #emailcampaign #emailmarketingtips #EmailTips #emailspam #EmailBlast #emailsuccess #emailstrategies #emailmarketing #contentmarketing

We think there's no better day than #internationalpodcastday to drop the latest episode of our Metaphorically Speaking podcast.⠀ .⠀ This time, we talk with Mitch Causey — founder and CEO of DemandWell, a digital marketing agency focused on attracting and converting traffic from organic search. Over the course of his career, he's advised dozens of companies on their marketing efforts from mom and pop shops to the Fortune 100. In this episode, Mitch assesses his first year as a business owner, discusses how his entrepreneurial grandfather influenced his decision to start his own agency, and shares how he confronts some of the biggest fears he faces each day.⠀ .⠀ Click the link in our profile to listen now or find us via your favorite podcast app (iTunes, Google Play, Spotify).⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #cityofcos #olympiccityusa #my_coloradosprings #my_cosprings #cosprings #mitchcausey #demandwell #colorado #coloradosprings #coloradospringsco #coloradospringssmallbusiness #coloradospringsbusiness #contentmarketing #marketing #smallbusiness #igersindiana #igersindy #indianapolis #noblesville #indiana #Podcast #orrfellowship #metaphoricallyspeaking #podcastshow #podcastersofinstagram #podcasting #podcasts

FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Out shooting in the Rockies with my then 2-year-old son, Quinn. So glad to see this photo come to life! So glad to be out in Colorado!

Get your week started by taking 30 minutes to write out the answer to this prompt. And be sure to find all the prompts here: www.keyholemarketing.us/four-prompts-to-get-you-writing-again.

Woke up at 5:30 to make it to @camryn_walton’s Writeshop Wednesday @impropercity in #Denver. Today’s writing prompt covered wabi sabi — a Japanese philosophy of slow living — with each of us exploring through the written word how we can release ourselves from perfectionism and find more power in the present. It was well worth the drive and early wake up call! . And to my #cos family, I hope to start a similar group soon. Shoot me a DM if you’re down! . #writeon

Is a bachelor’s degree necessary for success? With the average college attendee leaving school with over $28,000 in debt, it might leave you wondering if it is. That's the question we sought to answer in our latest blog for @moralesgroup. Keep reading at: https://moralesgroup.net/bachelors-degree-necessary-for-success.

Happy 6th birthday to my favorite coworker! Thanks for keeping my focus where it should be...family over work. Love you, man!

WRITTEN AT WRITESHOP WEDNESDAY IN DENVER: These words are fluid. Always moving into the future and pulling strongly from the past. Never set. Never finished. Never perfect.⠀ .⠀ I am the same. For better and for worse, I am always moving — one step stuck in the past and one step pressing firmly into the next — the next idea, the next adventure, the next experience.⠀ .⠀ What if I could find the middle — the moment of time in between what comes and what goes? And what if I could take a seat in the middle of that middle? Breathe it in. Taste its flavor. Watch its movements . . . or its stillness. No judgment of it. Just existence — fully present in its presence.⠀ .⠀ How would that change me and all my movements through this one life of mine? What might I notice in and around me? In and around others? What might I offer and receive? What might I create or grow curious about creating? What barriers might begin to crumble? What walls between me and others might be reshaped? What healthy boundaries between me and the distractions – or addictions –that pull me from this middle ground might be formed? ⠀ .⠀ How might I begin to see myself? Forgive myself? Love myself? What pressures to perform and produce might I leave behind? What stresses to succeed might I put down?⠀ .⠀ Maybe there in the middle I’d find a perfectly imperfect being — content in what’s been given and what I’m giving. Maybe I’d find a better version of myself that pulls from the past, pushes to the future, and now pauses in the present.

I think I just learned what "entrepreneur" meant a couple weeks ago, so Mitch (@mitchellfcausey) has been way ahead of me for years. But then again, he also had a grandfather who founded his own agency.⠀ .⠀ Take a listen to our latest podcast to hear who else inspired Mitch along the way to start and operate his own small business. I promise it will be a great way to start off your work!⠀ .⠀ Click the link in our profile or find us via your favorite podcast app (iTunes, Google Play, Spotify).⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ #cityofcos #olympiccityusa #my_coloradosprings #my_cosprings #cosprings #mitchcausey #demandwell #colorado #coloradosprings #coloradospringsco #coloradospringssmallbusiness #coloradospringsbusiness #contentmarketing #marketing #smallbusiness #igersindiana #igersindy #indianapolis #noblesville #indiana #Podcast #orrfellowship #metaphoricallyspeaking #podcastshow #podcastersofinstagram #podcasting #podcasts

We made it to the final day of our 7-part blog series on creating a content strategy in just one week! It's now time to craft your content, share it, and measure the results. Go check out this and all the blogs in this series at keyholemarketing.us.

“Who was your favorite cartoon character as a kid?” . My therapist asked me this a few years ago. At the time, I was in a mental space where I really didn’t know who I was, or who I wanted to be. I’d changed so much in the previous few months—quit corporate work, started my own business, wanted to be a dad but couldn’t seem to get there, started seeing my photography business as an actual artistic endeavor, etc. . Life was changing quickly. I was too, faster than I could process it all. . The question didn’t take me long to answer: Linus from the Peanuts cartoon. It was the reason behind the question that perplexed me. What would the answer to that question possibly tell me about myself? And what insight could it give me about my current state of missing identity? . Click link in profile to see what Linus taught me about writing.

“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in – what more could he ask?”- Victor Hugo . What’s the point of owning your own business if you don’t take advantage of the opportunity to set your own hours and hold meetings wherever you damn well please?!

In this recent blog we wrote for @gormanandbunch, we talk about how to find the right Invisalign doctor that will get you the smile you want. Not all are created equal, so here are three things to look for: https://gormanbunch.com/things-to-find-in-invisalign-doctor.

Close your eyes for a minute and imagine you had the perfect employee working for your company. This individual could effectively engage your target customer audience, creatively communicate your company’s mission and story, and quickly adapt to any changes your industry experiences. Oh, and this employee would also be on the clock 24/7, 365 days a year. Sound too good to be true?⠀ .⠀ Well, guess what? You likely have this employee in your company already: it’s your website.⠀ .⠀ That’s right! With a well-designed and properly utilized website, your company can go from good to great in a fairly short amount of time. Read on for 4 ways your website may just be your number one employee: www.keyholemarketing.us/your-website-is-your-most-important-employee.

“Time is a keyhole, he thought as he looked up at the stars. Yes, I think so. We sometimes bend and peer through it. And the wind we feel on our cheeks when we do - the wind that blows through the keyhole- is the breath of all the living universe.” - King

In 2017, we had the opportunity to help Aspen Group put on their annual Alignment Conference, assisting with brand management, website development, social media and email marketing, speaker and sponsor communications, overall project management, and event photography — as well as overall execution.

Continuing our 7-part blog series on how to create a content strategy in one week, we now pick up with day 2 on getting to know your audience.⠀ .⠀ It’s so easy to assume we know everything there is to know about the people we’re trying to reach. Take the popular iceberg model, for instance. When you see an iceberg, the majority of its breadth lies beneath the surface. Upon first glance, each person in your audience is like the tip of the iceberg. You might notice people of different ages, races, ethnicities, and genders, but those are only surface characteristics. It’s up to you to dive deeper and learn about their interests, their goals, their needs, what keeps them up at night, etc.⠀ .⠀ Continue reading for four helpful steps in getting started with developing audience segments at https://www.keyholemarketing.us/build-your-content-strategy-in-one-week-day-2-get-to-know-your-audience.⠀ .⠀ #audience #AudienceProfiling #audienceappeal #audiencedevelopment #audiencegrowth #audiencesegmentation #audiencetargeting #audiencebehaviour #Audiences #audienceattraction #AudienceEngagementStrategy #audiencebuilding #audiencesegments #audienceengagement #entrepreneur #business #success #entrepreneurship #coloradosprings #denver #colorado

Creating good content means nothing without a plan for sharing it. You need to know what pieces to create, when to distribute them and how to promote them once they’re out there.⠀ .⠀ We can create a content marketing strategy that ensures you use your limited time and resources wisely.

Or, we can create robust editorial calendars for you to follow each day, month, or throughout the year.⠀ .⠀ Let's talk at hi@keyholemarketing.us.⠀ .⠀ #marketingstrategy #marketingcoach #marketingdigital #marketingtips #marketinglife #marketingconsulting #marketingcompany #marketingfirm #marketingflow #marketingresources #marketingagency #entrepreneur #business #success #entrepreneurship #coloradosprings #denver #colorado

Investing in professional photography for your small business website, products, or employee head shots will give your brand the professional boost that it needs.⠀ .⠀ You’ll be able to utilize these photos for your website, social media profiles, and local listing, such as on Google Maps.Professional photography services can also be used for more traditional marketing, including business cards, brochures, or print catalogs.⠀ .⠀ Let's talk about your photo needs at hi@keyholemarketing.us.⠀ .⠀ #photography #photographyart #photographyskills #photographyblog #photographyig #photographybusiness #headshots #entrepreneur #business #success #entrepreneurship #coloradosprings #denver #colorado

You know those staff bios you need to write for your website? To get you started, here are some questions to ask your team:⠀ .⠀ ✓ What did you want to be/do when you were a kid?⠀ ✓ How would you describe what you do to a five year old?⠀ ✓ Why does your job matter to you?⠀ ✓ How would your others describe you in 5 adjectives?⠀ ✓ Favorite spots to hit up around town?⠀ .⠀ #contentmarketing #website #websitecontent #marketing #staffbio #team #teamwork #writing #writingcommunity #writingislife #writinglove #writingonthewall #writingadvice #content #contentstrategy #contentwriting #contentwriter #contentmarketingstrategy #entrepreneur #business #success #entrepreneurship #coloradosprings #denver #colorado

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” ― John Lennon⠀ .⠀ Last week, we recorded Season 2 of our Metaphorically Speaking podcast — exploring how fear affects our lives, our careers and the things we create. This image — captured up in Dillon, Colorado a few months ago — seemed to illustrate the topic of our conversation well.⠀ .⠀ Stay tuned for the season to drop in the coming weeks!⠀ .⠀ #colorado #coloradosprings #coloradospringsco #pikespeakmarket #pikespeak #denver #denversmallbusiness #coloradospringssmallbusiness #coloradospringsbusiness #contentmarketing #content #contentcreation #contentcreator #marketing #smallbusiness #blogger #Podcast #metaphoricallyspeaking #podcastshow #podcastersofinstagram #podcasting #podcastlife #podcasts

For the past several years, we've had the honor of working with Carson Design Associates (@carsondesignassociates) to tell their story. And in that time, one story has never wavered — their commitment to serving the local community. It's been so inspiring to watch their staff — both individually and as a team — freely give of their time to make a difference in the world.⠀ .⠀ And so it was a privilege writing this blog on their newest connection with a deserving organization: http://www.carsondesign.com/2019/09/hope-and-healing-through-purposeful-living.⠀ .⠀ #contentmarketing #storytelling #writing #blogwriting #indiana #indianapolis #coloradosprings #colorado #purposefulliving #volunteer #volunteering #volunteers #volunteerism #volunteerwork #VolunteersRock #volunteeringisfun #serve #serveothers #servehumanity #ServeYourPurpose

Last October, I took my first WI-FREE WORKDAY — going fully analog to write content, read through client interviews, and ponder marketing strategies offline in nature.⠀ .⠀ And I'm excited to soon keep that tradition alive here in Colorado Springs with six new friends, walking away from digital distractions and working away somewhere on the rocks of Pike National Forest.⠀ .⠀ Find out more about taking your own wi-free workday at https://www.keyholemarketing.us/wi-free-workday. ⠀ .⠀ #visitcos #cityofcos #olympiccityusa #my_coloradosprings #my_cosprings #coloradosprings #cosprings #colorado #coloradolive #coloradolife #coloradogram #pikespeakwonders #visitcolorado #visitcoloradosprings #rockymountains #mountains #offlinemarketing #mindfulness #analog

This business would have shut down long ago without the love, support and patience of my wife, @lindsaydudeck. Here's to our next 19 years together!

Heading to #indy for a quick biz trip in August, and I'm so hoping to get back to @newdaycraft. Haven't found anything like it out here in #coloradosprings.⠀ .⠀ A couple years ago, I had the privilege of sitting down with owner Tia Agnew in their Fountain Square tasting room to discuss how their hobby became a business, the highs and lows of working with your spouse, and what they’re brewing up next.⠀ .⠀ Check it out: https://www.keyholemarketing.us/new-day-craft-brewed-business-indianapolis-indiana.⠀ .⠀ #indianapolis #indiana #fountainsquare #contentmarketing #content #contentcreation #contentcreator #marketing #smallbusiness #businessowners #businessblog #storytelling #lovewhatyoudo #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneurship #smallbusinessowner #story #writing #photography #coloradosprings #denver #colorado #coloradospringssmallbusiness #denversmallbusiness

For the past 3 years, I’ve had the immense honor and privilege of working with Camryn Walton (@camryn_walton) — helping to serve Keyhole clients and tell our own story — but today we sadly bid her adieu as she seeks more space to focus on her full-time role at Radian and find a greater balance between life, work, and play.⠀ .⠀ As a small busines owner, I’ve learned that not everyone can be blindly trusted. People say one thing and do another. Agreements get made and then broken. It’s the joy of working with people.⠀ .⠀ But with Camryn, it’s always been different. She’s a person of fervent integrity, sincerity, and character, who can always be trusted to meet her requirements. She’s what you always hope to find in an employee, coworker, and friend — and yet the type that’s most elusive.⠀ .⠀ With Camryn, it never mattered if she was sharing a workspace with me in Indianapolis, emailing me blogs from India, or calling me from Denver, she always remained the same — loyal to the people she partnered with and committed to the work she produced.⠀ .⠀ I’ve said farewell to a lot of people over my 20+ career — most times elated to see them pursue their goals. But candidly and selfishly, there’s a bit more personal sadness than gladness in saying goodbye to Camryn, because I know how hard it is to find someone like her — someone who seeks out the needs around her, serves others with fixated time and attention, and runs after ways to evolve as a person.⠀ .⠀ But I know I’ll get there with Camryn — it’s hard not to cheer on someone like her.⠀ .⠀ Going forward, I’m not sure how much we’ll interact. About the only thing Camryn’s not great at — as she would readily acknowledge — is texting back, and, without standing meetings, it gets hard to make the time. But whatever the future holds, I’m grateful for the pieces of Camryn that I can take with me — transforming me into a better employer, vendor, husband, father, son, and friend.⠀ .⠀ Thank you, Camryn, for sharing your goodness and giving me new eyes to see and live.
