You hear it all the time, all over the place: SEO this and SEO that and you have to have good SEO! But what the heck does that even mean?  And what does it mean to be “spiderable?” 

Are we talking about websites or Arachnophobia here?

In this world where many of our modes of communication are so impersonal, it’s becoming increasingly important to find ways to connect with people face-to-face. There’s something different about talking to someone in person and having actual, real-time conversations with them that aren’t happening through Facebook or limited to a scant 140 characters. That’s why you might want to consider hosting an event for your business. You need face time to help you build lasting relationships with people.


GLAD WORKS on Thinking Differently

12 October 2011   Kristen     0 Comments

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.

Since the first caveman picked up his first primitive paintbrush and painted a weird looking animal figure on the inside of a cave, the arts have served as a bridge between people, society, and time.

Igniting thoughts, emotions, and conversations is also part of what makes a successful business. An amazing product or a great service does just what good art does—make people think, feel, and interact with one another.

A GLAD WORKS PSA: Poorly Written Content Makes You Look Like a Jackwagon

31 August 2011   Kristen     0 Comments

What makes a blog fun to write is its conversational style. In a blog, it’s okay once in a while to break some rules of grammar in order to write the way people actually speak. But there are some rules that are broken all over the place—on billboards and restaurant menus and newsletters that should never be broken. These grammatical mistakes aren’t just fodder for late-night TV hosts to poke fun—they often diminish credibility and could cause a loss in business.

Have you ever been looking at a menu in a restaurant and noticed a description that looks something like this?

Saving Trees, Talking Chihuahuas, Billing in Urdu… There’s a Lot Going on Over Here, Obviously.

Was that not the cutest picture last week? Little Bella and Dolce aren’t just adorable faces though! They’re very smart little dogs and they definitely keep us on our toes around here. In fact, as a nice follow-up to last week’s blog post, they’ve asked us to write about some great tools that can help save a ton of paper every day. Bella says that if everyone makes an effort to go as paperless as possible, we can save a gazillion trees!


GLAD WORKS: Dedicated to Keeping the Earth Happy, One Little Dog at a Time. WHAT?

You’ve been reading for a while now and the time has come, GLAD WORKS friends, for us to get intimate. 

We…we want to show you our recycling bin.

At GLAD WORKS, we like to tread as lightly as possible on the earth because in addition to being a bunch of kick butt designers and computer nerds, we’re also tree hugging hippies, dedicated to being as green as possible. So, we thought it might be fun to take a little break from our usual blog topics to give you a behind the scenes look at the sustainability practices we’ve implemented here at the GLAD WORKS studio.
