Account Diaries: Onboarding

Posted By:

Your phone buzzes and before you can digest what that means your thumb has already swiped right and your eyes are gazing at the screen. Weeks have passed leading up to this moment. Countless hours dedicated just to get here—you got the date! This was not just a tinder, swipe right - swipe left scenario, no this is the big leagues. You put pen to paper – well fingers to keyboard, but you get it. You took a look under the hood at what differentiates you, your principles, and where you stand.

Let Your Hair Down

Posted By: 

I usually don’t have a problem getting up early. But if there is bacon involved, it’s easier. When the most recent Social Media Breakfast email invite came in, I got a little excited. They were going to be covering best practices for Facebook LIVE and Instagram Stories: two newer ways of sharing content on social media that can be a little intimidating at first attempt. I know I know – there are SO many ways to deliver the message already.

Crab Pickin’, Boh Drinkin’, Maryland Lovin’ Rinck Addition

When I was a little girl I loved to look over the pilings on the dock in Annapolis to see if a crab would be hanging off the barnacles. It was a good day for crabbing if you were lucky enough to spot and net one. When I stumbled upon Rinck and noticed they were hiring in the Annapolis area, I knew this was the biggest crab I had to catch off a piling.

Saying Goodbye to 2016

Posted By: 
2016, what a year. We’re well over a month in and there’s still no shortage of “me vs. 2016” memes in our newsfeeds. Although we’re embracing 2017 with open arms, we can’t help but stop and think about all of the great things that happened in the last year, especially in advertising.

Get to Know Our Rincksters Based on Our “Most Used FB Words”

Posted By: 
Every day it seems there is a new BuzzFeed quiz or Facebook app that aims to sum up who you are in a singular image or item. Recent quizzes include “Which Extinct Animal Are You?”, or “We Know Which Thanksgiving Side You are Based on Your Zodiac Sign” (yes, for real….I’m cranberry sauce, for the record). There have also been the “Who is Your Evil Twin?” and “Who is Your Soulmate?” apps. Typically, I try to avoid the click bait and ignore these when scrolling through my feed. I don’t always win, though. The latest one “What are Your Most-Used FB Words?” got the best of my curiosity. I just had to try it!

Intern Interrogation

Posted By: 
Agency | Maine

This summer we had 3 stellar interns join us, and a puppy...we we're kinda obsessed with all of them. They have been research wizards, efficient and eager to tackle whatever we throw their way...which is sometimes tedious (think: content upload and mailings) and at other times wildly fun (think: go take pictures of Happy Meals and then eat them!), because that's just how advertising works.
