When we re-launched Aria Marketing four years ago, the leadership team had a unique opportunity to rebuild the company and its culture.

For this blog post, I wanted to share some of the initiatives we undertook that garnered the most and quickest positive responses from staff.

Facebook has been in hot water ever since the news broke that Cambridge Analytica, a political data consulting firm, harvested private data on over 50 million Facebook users without the users' permission. This is just one of many scandals that Facebook has had to weather recently, including recent criticism over the role it played in the 2016 election. With the #DeleteFacebook movement gaining momentum, and brands such as Tesla and Pep Boys removing their company pages from the platform, Facebook is facing a massive PR nightmare.

As we gear up for the holiday season and the start of 2018, it’s a perfect time to reflect on the past year and everything we’re grateful for. That’s why we want to give thanks to 10 blogs, and the people behind them, that we think do a superb job drilling down into the complexities of healthcare IT, and highlighting how exciting, innovative, and inspiring this industry can be.

I’m going to let you in on one of our secrets for success. As a smaller PR agency, we know we can’t do it all. So, we’ve partnered with some amazing companies to help expand our capabilities and add value for our clients. One such partner is Altos, a digital marketing agency whom we bring in for client projects such as website design. We think they’re the best in the biz, which is why I reached out to Altos Creative Director, Justin Martin, to see if he could share his top website design tips with our blog readers. Lucky for us, he obliged. So, take it away, Justin:

In honor of International Women’s Day we’re sharing our top three favorite commercials featuring women in 2019 thus far.

 

This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is: “better the balance, better the world.” Here at Aria Marketing we could not agree more.

Here at Aria we have a number of #workperks that keep us motivated, on task and well nourished (so many snacks!). One of my personal favorites has to do with Aria’s location. Aria is housed within a converted mill building just steps away from entrances to the Newton Conservators walking trails. These trails wind along the Charles River and provide a beautiful, relaxing space for a mid-day break. Curious as to what else Aria offers? Well, there is too much to fit into one blog post, but check out some Aria team favorites below!

Here at Aria, we work hard to achieve great results for our clients, but we also love to blow off steam as a team. Every quarter, our Fun Committee is in charge of putting on a big event for the team to kick back, relax and have a great time. This time around, we wanted to try something a little different. Not only did we want to host an enjoyable event, but we wanted to create something special for the office. And what better place to do that than at Paint Bar!

We love our city and appreciate all it has to offer (great restaurants, killer sports teams, beautiful outdoor space, etc). So, it’s important to us to be active members in our community and find ways to give back to keep it such an amazing place.
