And this trend isn’t just about entertainment – according to HubSpot, short-form video ranks as the best content format for lead generation.
If you’ve been weighing whether short-form video can help your organization, we have a message for you – go for it! Here’s what the metrics tell us:

If you’ve never worked on a remote team before you may have a lot of questions like how to introduce yourself to a new team remotely. There are also a lot of misconceptions about remote work.

We're very proud to be a remote office that prioritizes collaboration, creativity, and a healthy work-life balance. As a team that is currently spread out across three states—Wisconsin, Illinois, and Michigan—we're always looking for innovative ways to build our company culture and connection, despite our physical distance.
Here's a look at some of the ways we got to know each other, trained together, and had fun while residing in separate states. We also get together in person from time to time, most notably at our annual retreat.

When it came time to put together this month’s blog, we decided to turn to our team to find out what they've learned over their time here. Here’s what they had to say:
