Blogging has become a huge marketing phenomenon over the last decade or so, and for good reasons. It helps establish a brand identity, display knowledge of a specific industry or many industries, share thoughts and opinions on relevant subjects, and the list goes on and on. Blogging helps share these thoughts and ideas to the world, having the ability to reach huge audiences. However, reaching those huge audiences is much easier said than done. Since my start at INTEGRIS, I have learned quite a bit about blogging and blog marketing, as it is something I had little experience with before working here. Now, we don’t have a blog audience of millions of people, but we are growing our audience more and more each month, which has been our main goal. So, that being said, I’m going to share 5 tips that I have picked up along my blog knowledge gaining journey that seem to continuously work for us. There are dozens of different approaches you can take when pumping out blog posts, but these 5 aspects I’m going to share with you are good to start with.
Coding: What Do You Know About the High-Tech Language?
There are a lot of things that people don’t know about coding, myself included. However, since I’ve worked at INTEGRIS I have learned a lot more about it than I ever thought I would. And believe it or not, it’s actually pretty interesting! It’s easy to look at a line of code and think “This is dumb, it’s just mumbled words, letters, and numbers that have no meaning”. That’s exactly what I thought about it before I started dabbling in it a little bit, but I eventually realized that it does serve a purpose and a pretty important one at that. Now, believe me, I’m nowhere close to being a coding expert…more like a rookie novice who is still trying to earn a seat on the team bench. So that being said, this blog post won’t tell you how to code (remember, I’m a rookie), but it will highlight some of the areas of why coding is important not only in web and tech development but also where the future of coding is headed.
INTEGRIST Wins Accounting Academic Scholarship!
INTEGRIS’ very own DeeAnn Schaalma was recently named the recipient of the Warren M. Webber Scholarship at Illinois Central College in East Peoria, IL. This scholarship is delivered to the ICC student who has a need for financial assistance with their tuition based on certain criteria. The student must be full or part-time and they must maintain a 2.0 or higher academic GPA. DeeAnn went above and beyond to meet those criteria, distinguishing herself as the best-qualified student and ended up walking away the winner of the scholarship! Everyone at INTEGRIS is very proud of her accomplishment as she continues her education through ICC! Below you will find a picture of DeeAnn and Robert Brucker, a nephew of Mr. Webber, at the scholarship ceremony for ICC.
