The Power of Social Media for Job Seekers

Thank You!

This is a follow up to my post about a month and a half ago when I lost my job. I just want to say thank you to everyone that responded and reached out to me via social media and directly. It was a combination of people looking to hire and referrals. It has proved to be another testament for the power of social media for job seekers. Without my network I would have never gotten past this hard time as quickly as I did. Thanks!

So the big news: As a result of the post, I had a few interviews (some went really well, others did not go so well) at various companies, I ended up interviewing with  Armstrong Flooring headquartered in Lancaster. The interviews went really well and as a result I’ve take a position with them as a Digital Marketing Specialist for Commercial Flooring. I’ll be focusing on my core skills; Website analytics and SEO, along with some other digital marketing tasks for North and South America and the Pacific rim.

Thanks again to everyone help me through the transition!

A New Year a New Adventure!

In October of 2014 I merged the company I founded, Blackbird e-Solutions, LLC with Scheffey. Now after almost a year and a half it’s time for my next adventure.

It’s time for my next adventure!

I’m happy to announce that on February 22nd I will be starting my new position as the Digital Marketing Director at Grit Marketing Group. Grit was formerly known as Moxie, but in the end of 2015 they changed their name and brand. With the new name came a renewed focus on growth and the development towards a more powerful digital agency.

In the new position I will have the opportunity to work with companies and brands at the local, regional and national level. I’ll also have the chance to build a digital team to push boundaries with forward thinking and creative ideas. Digital moves fast and as with many things the best road to success is to build a strong foundation and put processes in place to promote adaptability and growth that is measurable.

Two of my long-time clients will be joining me for the transition. They both started with Blackbird e-Solutions and it seems over the years we’ve become quite fond of each other: The Protocall Group and A.R. Mazzotta.

I’m looking forward to joining the team at Grit and working with new clients.

As always I can be found in the usual places online @BryanSCoe on Twitter as well as LinkedIn.

Let the new adventure begin!

Five Uses for Your Latest Phone book

Many of you may have come home to find the latest phone book on your doorstep. Or someone recently dropped them off at your office. A guy stop in today to deliver to our office and he asked, “Do you want more than four?”  My thought was, “Do we really need even one?”

Yellowboook continues to deliver printed phone books even though many if not most go straight to the trash or recycle bin. I’d also venture to guess that anyone under 40 may not have ever even used one. No one ever asks for them they just show up!

So, if you are at a lost as to what to do with your new paperweight, or you just feel bad about throwing them away. Here are five tips for to do with them:

  1. The Door Stop

    Nothing says utility like the “phone book doorstop.”the phone book doorstop

  2. The Window Brace

    If you have old or broken windows, don’t use a stick, use the phone book! It even has two settings. Lay it on it’s side for a small opening and stand it up for a wider opening.The phone book windo brace

  3. The Booster Seat

    Tired of being too short when you sit at the table? Use the booster seat. One book not enough? Use multiples for even more height. Also works in the car.the phone book booster seat

  4. The Foot Rest

    Need to put your feet up while you ponder next great business idea? Try the phone book footrest. Great for relaxing and adjustable as well. the phone book laptop stand

  5. The Laptop Stand

    My personal favorite. It’s perfect combination of old and new. The phone book laptop stand.the phone book laptop stand
