Turkey is in the oven, and our Black Friday sales are up and running, which entails one thing.
It’s time to sit back and reflect on the last year.
Whether you are a digital marketing veteran, or are just starting out, there is probably something you have learned of knew this year that has really made an impact.
To find out just what those things are, we reached out to our Lab community in DM Engage to see what about digital sell they were most thankful for.
And there were a few really great responses we thought we should share.
What Are YOU Thankful For?
John Snippe responded with:
“I guess I’ll answer with some specificity: I am grateful for what the DigitalMarketer team has done for my mindset as regards approaching the whole marketing thing. I now have an awareness of the requisite mental prompts and some idea of how to use them to help potential patrons become more responsive to my sense. I had the inaccurate’ me’ in the driver’s posterior: I now know that’ me’ is the prospect , not the make or the company. So: thanks, guys !! ”
No, thank YOU John.
Rich Cook also submitted a response, saying 😛 TAGEND
“I’m appreciative for all the bright minds who find marketing fun and dig into the deets to test and digit it all out.’ Cause that ain’t me. Without the penetrations and remarks from everyone in this group, I’d be lost. And probably back at a corporate enterprise hating life. As it is, I can tap into the collective sense of the group and appear smarter than I certainly am.”
That’s exactly why we have our DM Engage Community. Everyone’s marketing fortitudes are different, but when you get a wonderful group of people together, we all get to help each other out.
We had one more amazing submission, something that I think everyone on the DM team can agree with, from Maria Hoath Peagler 😛 TAGEND
“I’m grateful about the impact digital marketing allows me to have on my clients’ occupations. My work is not just about a sales funnel, but about enabling my clients to do what they love, fill a talented organization, support their families, and in turn, make a difference in their own clients’ lives.”
I honestly couldn’t have said it better myself.
What Are WE Thankful For?
This Engage post got me thinking.
It can be really easy to sink into the “work work work” mindset and lose sight of the wonderful market timber around us. But if there’s one thing that helps me step back and reset my point of view, it’s thinking about the things that I am indebted for.
So what would the DM team say if I asked them what they were thankful for?
I requested around the office to find out. And candidly, reading all of the responses( shown below) got me a bit teary eyed.
We’ve got a LOT to be thankful for now at DM.
Sophia Lopez, Director of People& Culture:
“I’m not customer-facing, but I get to work directly with the largest parties that serve our clients. I am grateful that I get to come to an office filled with people that really cause a damn about each other, our companionship, and of course our clients. We aren’t perfect, and there are tough epoches/ seasons.
But I’d 100% very spend a hard season with our amazing team members instead of a excellent era with people who are simply collecting a paycheck. So grateful for this team! Keep on being gumpy! ”
Matt Shelar, Promotions Manager:
” In a time where egotism is at its most raging, I’m indebted that DigitalMarketer’s average customer is the type of person who’s humble enough to raise their handwriting when they don’t understand something.

Like Engage member Maria said above, knowing that DM is helping business owners supplanted and thrive every day is really amazing. And having a superb team to work with toward that goal is even better. But really getting to interact with all you lovely purveyors is a joy in and of itself.
And it seems like it’s a feeling that is shared across the board at DM.
