Hi! This is Rebecca and Sofi. This last week we launched our final linkbait project, an infographic about biking in Seattle for CK’s client Seattle Mortgage Planners. It looks great, so you should check it out!
We’ve had an amazing nine weeks at Commerce Kitchen, but our internship has come to an end so the time has sadly come to write our final blog post.
This week was a very busy one!
We finished our infographic, emailed outreach targets and posted on social media. Despite an apparent time crunch, we did well. People responded to our emails and we got it out there. It was so great that people responded- they sound very excited too! I’m sure it will only grow in the coming weeks. That will be our final challenge, keeping up with our metrics despite going into the school year.
This has definitely been an educational experience, and not just in linkbait or SEO, though those are certainly lessons that are useful even beyond the field of SEO. This was, while not my first time “living alone,” it was definitely that moreso than my previous experiences. It is always great to live in a new town- you learn a lot about how that place works and what the people are like. Being a part of Commerce Kitchen was amazing too. It was a chance to see how a small startup is run and managed.
I also got to meet a ton of great people. You guys rock! Granted, my employment history is not incredibly long, but out of all the places I’ve ever worked, you guys are the most fun. It was great spending nine weeks with you!
Nine weeks here, and we have finally launched a linkbait! We certainly hit a lot of bumps along the way, but it has been a fun ride, marked with unforgettable experiences and many things learned.
I’m really excited about how the biking infographic turned out. It looks fantastic (Goodtimes did a really nice job with the design), the content is interesting and we’ve been doing some extensive outreach, so hopefully it will take off. In additon to this project, in our time here we also set the groundwork for two other linkbait projects: a networking campaign for Commerce Kitchen (which we spent some significant time on earlier in our internship) and a historical piece around horses for another of CK’s clients.
I said in my first blog post that this internship marked many firsts for me, and consequently it has been a great learning experience. In addition to the oodles I learned about linkbait and online marketing, I learned some of the ropes of living on my own, holding the responsibility of a full time job, and working on a professional team.
The CK team was awesome, and I want to thank them for the experience; for being so welcoming, for encouraging us to see Denver, for teaching us about SEO and marketing and various related fields, and giving all kind of guidance, assistance and support in executing our crazy linkbait ideas. Thank you! You guys are super!
