What We Learned

Monday: More is more. Automate everything. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. Throw a blog up and forget about it. Anybody can do this. Viral or bust. These are just some of the content marketing myths you might be living and dying by. It’s time to change your approach and relationship to making content.

Tuesday: Prioritizing web accessibility helps us work toward a more inclusive digital landscape for folks with hearing, visual, motor, and cognitive impairments. These key considerations for accessible website design and development ensure that your message will reach users with assistive technology and other needs. Plus, it’s good SEO.

Wednesday: If you’re under-utilizing LinkedIn, there are five ways to jumpstart your lead gen. First, optimize your pages and identify your target audience. Then, enhance your content strategy with high-value, mid-funnel LinkedIn articles, carousels, documents, and events. Thoughtfully interact with decision makers on your feed, and loop in your stakeholders to help. Finally, leverage LinkedIn ads to reach your target and boost your best content.

Thursday: Google Analytics 4 will track scroll activity by default with the scroll enhanced measurement event—but only once a visitor reaches a scroll depth of 90%. If you want to track scroll activity at 25%, 50%, 75%, and so on, you’ll need to follow a few steps.
