Turkey is in the oven, and our Black Friday sales are up and running, which intends 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 the picture is, we reached out to our Lab community in DM Engage to see what about digital commerce they were most indebted for.

And there were a few really great responses we thought we should share.

What Are YOU Thankful For?

John Snippe writes about what he is most grateful for in digital marketing, which is the DigitalMarketer team and the effect they've had on his mindset

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 psychological prompts and some idea of how to use them to help potential patrons become more responsive to my sense. I had the mistaken’ me’ in the driver’s posterior: I now know that’ me’ is the prospect , not the make or the company. So: thanks, people !! ”

No, thank YOU John.

Rich Cook writes a Facebook comment talking about how he's grateful for the bright minds who find marketing fun

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 assessment and person it all out.’ Cause that ain’t me. Without the penetrations and observations from everyone in this group, I’d be lost. And probably back at a corporate errand disliking life. As it is, I can sounds into the collective knowledge of the group and appear smarter than I really am.”

That’s exactly why we have our DM Engage Community. Everyone’s marketing persuasiveness are different, but when you get a wonderful group of beings together, we all get to help one another out.

Maria Hoath Peagler shares her gratitude for the impact she's able to make on her clients' businesses through digital marketing

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’ enterprises. My work is not just about a sales funnel, but about enabling my clients to do what they love, employ a talented staff, support their families, and in turn, make changes in their own clients’ lives.”

I candidly 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 marketing timber around us. But if there’s one thing that helps me step back and reset my perspective, it’s thinking about the things that I am thankful for.

So what would the DM team say if I asked them what they were indebted for?

I expected around the office to find out. And frankly, reading all of the responses( shown below) got me a little teary-eyed 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 great beings that responds to our patrons. I am grateful that I get to come to an office filled with beings that really yield a damn about each other, our companionship, and of course our purchasers. We aren’t perfect, and there are tough daylights/ seasons.

But I’d 100% very spend a tough season with our amazing unit members instead of a perfect epoch with people who are simply collecting a paycheck. So grateful for this team! Keep on being gumpy! ”

Matt Shelar, Promotions Manager:

” In a hour where pride is at its most raging, I’m thankful that DigitalMarketer’s average customer is the type of person who’s humble enough to raise their hand when they don’t understand something.

It’s the best motivation I could ever ask for! ”

As a business owner, you’re working long hours as it all stops with you–you’re responsible for the health of the company and your employee’s subsistences.

Having the privilege teachings and processes is key to growing your business without the stress and overtake that can come in the day to date of extending a business. Which is why it’s so honoring to see our customers’ feedback and testaments, how it’s positively affected their lives and businesses’ bottom line. I’m proud and humbled I get to play a small part in their success.”

“As Community Manager, I’m in an incredibly unique situation where I get to watch DM Content impact people’s lives and jobs. AND I then get to see how our members give that knowledge and pass it on to help other members who are feeling put and overwhelmed.

It’s a euphorium to watch our Community create its own story, all the while encouraging and supporting one another in the process. Whether that’s through educational institutions they get inside Lab or not, I am indebted for how our members construct one another up and contribute to fixing DM not just a residence to learn, but a home to grow and connect.

There’s no way any of us would be here without our members, and they are the reason why many of us feel that coming to DM daily isn’t actually a’ profession, ’ but instead an opportunity to collaborate on something that truly matters to businesses.”

Garrett Cannon D’Entremont, Sr. Partner Success Manager:

“I’m appreciative for the community of entrepreneurs and marketing experts that we have created in the Partner Program. I’ve never met a group of beings that are quite so holding of their occasion, exertion, and expertise in the pursuit of growth and learning every day.

I’ve seen companies skip over a common impediment in a heartbeat that would normally take a business owner 6 months to overcome. The altruism of local communities is unparalleled, and I am so appreciative to call these beautiful people my tribe.”

Jenna Snavely, Content Manager( Production ):

“I get the privilege of speaking to our clients often, online and in person, and I affection their passion for changing their own customers’ lives, how freakin’ smart they are, and their willingness to jump in and do the labor. Too, their GIF game is strong, and our community is full of truly funny humans.”

Creating the best marketing training to help professions stretch!

If it wasn’t for their try, we’d have no chance in preparing sure that the best businesses and concoctions win … not only the best marketer.”

Shannon Goodell, Social Media Manager:

“I’m thankful to work at a company that allows me to create and measure a variety of content and tricks on social media to see what works best for our target audience. Not a good deal of corporations give you the leeway that DigitalMarketer does.

I’ve too had the privilege of being able to share my determines with our purchasers( blog posts and Office Hours ), and I hope that they’ve noted what I’ve learned helpful for their own social media approaches. It ever enlivens my epoch when our purchasers make the time to interact on our affixes by providing precious insights.”

Amanda Powell, Director of Marketing:

“I’m indebted I get to come in every day and working in collaboration with a squad of enthusiastic people who strive to help our customers. The personnel now at DigitalMarketer are some of the brightest and more enthusiastic people I’ve ever is collaborating with. And when that force is funneled into helping our purchaser locate through material, social media, email, and more, it’s truly a vision to see. AND it’s extra special when we get to witness the impact we’re making on businesses of all sizes.”

Getting to be in a customer-facing role within an organization like this means that I have the full patronage of this company to do whatever I is capable of being compile our customers’ day! ”

Like Engage member Maria said above, knowing that DM is helping business owners succeed and thrive every day is really amazing. And having a fanciful team to work with toward that goal is even better. But time 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.

So if I had to pick just one thing that I’m thankful for this holiday season, “it wouldve been” …


The wonderful books and patrons we work to serve every day. You all shape the whole thing worth it.

Happy Thanksgiving, and Best Wishes from the whole DM Team.
