    The Easier Path to Audience & Influence Insights

    The Easier Path to Audience & Influence Insights

    Fishkin is known for founding MOZ. Now he's building an easier path to discovering insights about a given audience, including who influences them, without expensive research. He visited #DiggingDeeper this week to talk about SparkToro and what the future of consumer insights looks like.

    The Sustainability Concerns with Blockchain, Bitcoin and NFTs

    The Sustainability Concerns with Blockchain, Bitcoin and NFTs

    We’ve talked a lot about the blockchain, NFTs and Web 3.0 on Digging Deeper recently, but there’s a big concern out there over blockchain technology and its carbon footprint. It’s estimated that one Bitcoin transaction uses around 2,100 kilowatt hours. That’s the same energy the average U.S. household uses in 75 days. When the energy source powering the computers that churn out that transaction is non-renewable, more greenhouse gas emissions happen and the environment takes another hit.
    But Bitcoin is one of hundreds of options for cryptocurrency and blockchain access. And this is where competition makes the market balanced for everyone. There are simply better options out there.
    Matt Rickard is the co-founder of Task, a Stellar blockchain-based platform that helps companies connect their teams with the organizations social missions. But he is also the co-founder of The Blue Marble, a Steller-based NFTs marketplace. The common thread there is the Stellar-based blockchain which alleges to be faster, cheaper and more energy efficient than typical blockchain based systems.
    Rickard educated us on the sustainability issue and blockchains, talk to us about The Blue Marble and how brands can be more responsible with NFT work in marketplaces like his and then help us understand the connection between a company, its employees and its social good.

    Presenting Own It: Attacking the Gender Gap in Advertising Agency Ownership

    Presenting Own It: Attacking the Gender Gap in Advertising Agency Ownership

    Less than one percent of all advertising agencies are owned by women. Read that again. It's kind of astonishing when you think about it.
    For Cornett owner Christy Hiler, that's a problem. Today, she launched an effort to do something to close the gender gap in ad agency ownership called Own it.
    The effort is being cataloged at UntilYouOwnIt.com where female and non-binary agency owners can join and participate in mentorship and other activities to help more women, Own It.
    Part of the effort for Own It is a new podcast hosted by Hiler herself where she interviews and celebrates the growing number of women and non-binary ad agency owners to talk about buying out of the boys club of advertising, one agency at a time. 
    On this special, audio-only edition of Digging Deeper, you'll hear an excerpt from Own It's first episode. In it, Hiler talks to Jean Freeman from Zambezi, the largest female-owned ad agency in the country. 
    After you listen, be sure to subscribe to Own It at UntilYouOwnIt.com or wherever your get your podcasts.
