Meet Our Marketing Intern – Gabriel Boyd

Loebig Ink Team Member: Gabriel Boyd

Gabriel Boyd on the football fieldMarketing Intern Gabriel Boyd came to Loebig Ink by way of a recommendation from his father, Damon Boyd, who believed it could be a good fit for him and his skill set. So far, the projects he’s taken part in have very much been journeys into learning; his work as an intern has given him the opportunity to encounter aspects of business he’d never been aware of before. The newness of marketing concepts and practices makes working with Loebig Ink an interesting endeavor and Gabriel is ready for the new horizon. 

Born in Rockford, Illinois, Gabriel moved to Aurora, Illinois in time for 6th grade. As he grew up in Aurora, challenges weren’t in short supply. He loved taking part in sports, but was very small for his age. Every sport he tried was an uphill climb. Education also had its difficulties. 

“I always struggled with subjects such as math throughout my life,” he recalls. “However, my teachers and family there helped me overcome my weakness and turned it into a strength for me which is something I could’ve never anticipated.” Today Gabriel majors in Business Administration at Elmhurst University and he’s a defensive back on the football team. 

So far Gabriel has been taking a jack-of-all-trades approach and is familiarizing himself with many of the services that Loebig Ink provides. He is particularly excited about having the opportunity to work with Social Media Specialist Philip Day. His favorite thing so far about working with Brian Loebig and the team is the support he and all the interns receive so that learning new material is easy to understand. He believes this internship is teaching him the value of staying on top of what happens behind the scenes of a good business. 

When he’s not working on social media marketing and other services for Loebig Ink projects, Gabriel is usually keeping busy doing homework, playing football, or working at another job. One of the things he desires most in life is to have no debt and to live in financial freedom so he can travel the world. As he continues to grow and succeed at Loebig Ink, he certainly seems to be on the right track.

Meet Our Intern – Shaquille Telford

Loebig Ink Team Member: Shaquille Telford

Shaquille Telford - Performing PoetryLoebig Ink intern Shaquille Telford comes to Loebig Ink with a long history of loving all things internet. When he was young, his parents let him use a computer from time to time. It caught his attention right away. Eventually online entertainment led Shaquille to build websites, create blogs, make YouTube videos, and more. “I probably tried everything you can do on the internet which only increased my love for it,” he says.

Eventually, while exploring how and where to learn more about the World Wide Web, Shaquille came across Brian Loebig and Loebig Ink. After having known Brian for several months, the chance arose for an internship with the company. He snapped up the opportunity to learn with Brian and the rest of the team about how to provide value to other businesses through the internet.

So far, search engine optimization is the Loebig Ink service Shaquille has been enjoying learning about the most. He finds it exciting to discover and hone the details of the SEO process — everything from how to make a website searchable to getting pages to the top of Google. He is happy to be part of the team.

However, Shaquille’s life hardly exists only online. One month into beginning to work with Loebig Ink, his son was born. While he worried that spending time with his child would make him less available and thus a burden to the others, everyone congratulated him and has been open to working with him around his new schedule. He is glad to find that everyone seems to work together well and has been accommodating.

When he’s not working on something for Loebig Ink, Shaquille is most likely spending his free time writing poetry and being with family. He says being a parent is a joy… and a challenge. Having a 4-year-old means that he may well have seen the Disney movie, Zombies, 20 times in the past week! One of his goals is to run a program one day to teach parents how to break their bad habits to become better people and, in turn, better parents.

Bonus facts about Shaquille Telford:

Though he looks and sounds American to most, he was born in the Bahamas.

He once swam with stingrays. He claims they aren’t as scary in person as you might think, but he probably won’t swim with them again!

Internet Marketing for the Beauty Industry

Brian Loebig on the Body Beauty Show

Body Beauty Show logoAt the beginning of Episode 65 of the Body Beauty Show, host Austin Evans leads with the questions that so many business owners ask themselves: “How do I market my products? How do I market my services?” He invited Brian Loebig to speak with him on the podcast to help beauty entrepreneurs sort through the “ocean of noise” they encounter in the spirit of advice to find the most important internet marketing actions they can take to increase their rankings in search engines.

During the episode, “High Impact Low Effort Marketing Tactics to Help Your Spa Stand Out,” Brian defines personal branding SEO and tells listeners about the importance of taking full advantage of quick, easy steps beauty business owners can take that make big impacts such as filling out profiles on free directories and sites like About.me. Brian and Austin discuss tailoring web presence and social media to the most suitable demographic. They discuss ways of obtaining backlinks for a website and the important role sponsorships can play. Also mentioned in the lively conversation are ways to maximize the use of your Google Business Profile such as adding services to the profile in the Products section to achieve greater visibility for spas and related beauty businesses.

“This is really like the low-hanging fruit kind of stuff that can propel your business above competitors,” Brian says. The podcast conversation then moves into more technical information about working with Google Search Console, Google Analytics, and the new version of Analytics, GA4. Expect a future Body Beauty Show presentation in a webinar format so the visual aspect can help viewers delve more deeply into these topics.

The Body Beauty Show is produced by Artemis, whose mission is “to build a community of successful entrepreneurs who empower their clients to be confident in their own skin.” The company specializes in U.S. distribution of professional equipment for medical and beauty spas. Over 1,000 partners are currently part of the Artemis family.

Loebig Ink Featured in a ContentCal Success Story

A ContentCal and Loebig Ink Success Story graphicOne of the most important aspects of doing business today is also one of the most challenging: keeping up a consistent social media presence. Direct, call-to-action social media marketing is incredibly important, but so is overall visibility and friendly engagement through content of interest to followers and potential new clients. We use ContentCal to serve our Social Media Management clients and we are honored that Loebig Ink was recently featured as a Success Story on the ContentCal website.

The article, “Creating the foundations for scale,” outlines our trajectory from when we first began offering Social Media Management – back when creating and sharing spreadsheets for the task was all we had – to eventually choosing ContentCal as our preferred content management platform. We are very happy now with how easy it is to create, schedule, and auto-post social media content for our clients. Finding the right platform with the features we needed, however, wasn’t a direct path. It took time, feedback, discussion, and trust. You can read the story at contentcal.com.

ContentCal launched in 2016 and streamlines content marketing to make the processes simpler. Their products offer the ability to plan, schedule, and publish across multiple platforms, to engage with clients and customers, and to perform analyses on the presentation of your messages so you keep on top of what works best for your business.
