Happy Thanksgiving from Team Eminent SEO
This year Eminent SEO has a lot to be grateful for. Our company has continued to grow, we made it through Google Penguin, Panda AND Hummingbird, our clients have continued to maintain online success and we are proud of the work our team has been producing.
In honor of Thanksgiving, we decided to share some of the things we are grateful for this year:
“This year I am thankful that I am living a happy, healthy, and comfortable life.” – Zachary Ankeny
“I am thankful for my husband and children. They have the ability to improve my mood on a bad day and are always my biggest cheerleaders when I need them. I am thankful for liquor…especially when I have to deal with my in-laws J” – Stephanie Conner
“I’m thankful for my 5 & 8 year old boys! They keep me laughing every day and still aren’t embarrassed to give me a hug & kiss goodbye when I’m dropping them off for school.” – Lacey Hayes
“I am thankful for my family – my two beautiful girls and my amazing husband. I am also thankful for coffee and Pinterest.” – Kirstin Douglas
“I’m thankful for the struggles I’ve had in my life. Everything I have gone through has taught me a valuable life lesson, made me the person I am today, and taught me to appreciate all the little things in life – everyday miracles like seeing my son’s smile.” – Amanda Sisk
“I’m grateful for forgiveness from those who love me…even when I’m unlovable. “ – Renizzle
“My happy, healthy new baby girl and my smart, funny daughter Maya and whom none of them would be possible, my loving, generous wife Kathy.” – Chris Beckley
“I am grateful my family. Without them I wouldn’t have the strength I have today. I am also thankful for amazing coworkers cause we all know what it’s like work with non-friendly people.” – Tatiana Anderson
“Iron Man.” – Chris Weatherall
“I am grateful for the many wonderful people I have in my life – I have beautiful, happy, healthy children, a hardworking, loving companion, a beautiful family and an awesome team to support Eminent SEO. I’m also thankful for coffee, soft blankets, Netflix and chocolate. ” – Jenny Stradling
The Best Ads of 2013
For the final month of the year we decided to share the top ads from 2013 in place of the photo a day challenge.
If you want to play along, share your favorite ads from 2013 on your social media platform or blog of choice and use the hashtag #ESEOBestAds2013. The ads can be video, print, billboards, banners – anything and everything related to creative advertising!
Here are some of the best ads from 2012 to give you some ideas:
Best In Print:
Agency: Lowe, Bangkok, Thailand
Get that pig off your plate with Sunlight. An average idea, perhaps, but impressive illustrations.
