Optimistic News: January 2021
From our CEO’s Desk: Building a Better Year
I’m optimistic about 2021.
That’s inspired by the businesses that we talked to in December. When I spoke with the owners, VPs, and Directors of Sales of our client companies, they acknowledged the challenges of the next twelve months (and this winter in particular), but everyone seemed united on one front: this year will be better.
My main focus is making sure that Online Optimism does better in every little thing we do. In 2020, our social media team pushed out 8,272 pieces of content, on behalf of ourselves and our clients. Considering our growth, we should easily surpass 10,000 in 2021. That’s 10,000 opportunities to grow a business, connect with a community, and help clients reach their goals.
We’re committed to putting even more content and Optimism from our agency out into the world in 2021. As always, let us know if we can do the same for you.
