The ONeil Edit – May 13, 2022

It’s Friday, the 13th you all! The last Friday, the 13th I remember was in March of 2020 and it was a very bad day for the whole world. It’s the day we shut down. A quick google revealed that there’s been another one since then in August of 2021 but I have no recall […]

The ONeil Edit – May 6, 2022

I took a brief hiatus in April due to spring break and the April episode of Homefiniti & Beyond. I’m glad to be back though because I missed writing. It’s a gloomy Friday here and there’s lots of work to be done so I’m thankful for this distraction from the rain and the piles of […]

The ONeil Edit – April 8, 2022

Dax Shepard’s intro to his podcast is in my head as I start writing this today… Hello hello hello and welcome welcome welcome welcome to The ONeil Edit. I guess that’s my brain’s way of trying to psyche me up for writing this morning. I’m in a bit of a funk and finding exciting marketing […]

The ONeil Edit – April 1, 2022

Oh how Ioath April Fool’s. I find it to a be supremely irritating tradition. Therefore, you shan’t find a joke or prank within these paragraphs. It’s cold here which is super lame because I am in desperate need for sunshine and warmth. It has yet to be confirmed but I have a sneaking suspicion that […]

In this month’s Homefiniti & Beyond, Molly White, ONeil Interactive’s Digital Marketing Manager, delivered an encore presentation of her TechBytes program from the Builders’ Show. A great overview of the benefits of the tool. If you missed the live event, here’s the recording: Facebook Business Manager is a robust tool that makes it significantly easier […]

The ONeil Edit – March 25, 2022

This week’s Edit will be short and sweet, just like my attention span of late. Two of this week’s articles were actually shared on LinkedIn by family members which is a weird coincidence. Without further ado I’m diving in! META Facebook Ads AKA Meta Ads are getting an automated upgrade. Much of this involves new […]

The ONeil Edit – March 18, 2022

Happy St. Patrick’s Day 🍀one day late! It’s my favorite fake holiday and I really brought my A game to it this year. I bought light up Shamrock glasses and a matching shamrock light necklace to wear to all my video calls yesterday. It was an extremely video call heavy day so it helped keep […]

The ONeil Edit – March 11, 2022

Last week there was no Edit because there wasn’t anything noteworthy to write about. This week is another story. As I have said before, often the themes in my work week are parroted in the week’s newsletter content. This is one of those weeks.  First and Zero party data collection, email open rates, SEO, housing […]

Are Auto-Reply Emails Still Relevant?

There was an internal discussion this week about whether the auto-reply email is still relevant. Well, that topic immediately got me sitting up in my chair. Can you guess what camp I sit in? Coming from the CRM side of the business, I am most definitely on Team Auto-Reply (along with a Thank You Page). […]

Dynamic personalization in both website functionality and in marketing is highly effective. Somewhere between adding a person’s first name to a mass email and adding a potential home buyer’s family photos to digital frames in your model homes when they schedule a tour (and use their Facebook login to do so) lies the sweet spot. […]

The ONeil Edit – February 25, 2022

And we’re writing… (or so the little voice in my head says as I begin to formulate the content of this week’s Edit.) I have a system for this endeavor. File all unread newsletters during the week into a folder in my inbox Friday morning open and read each newsletter, clicking open any articles that […]

The ONeil Edit – February 18, 2022

It’s been a minute but since the last Edit, I traveled with Dennis, Megan, and Angela to my first in person IBS. Dennis summed it up nicely in his post; it was everything I heard it was and more. I came back with a full tank, ready to help our builders achieve their sales goals […]

A day or two or twenty late but not a dollar short. 2021 was a WILD ride for builders and the charts agree. It started with such huge promise in every conceivable way but as the year wore on not only were new home builders dealing with skyrocketing lumber costs, labor shortages and supply chain […]

Isn’t it Ironic?

It would have been more convenient to attend the Builders’ Show online. No flights to catch, no mask-wearing, no outfits to pick out, no sore feet, not to mention a considerable dollar savings to your company or perhaps personally. So why did 55,000+ people attend in-person? My guess is for the same reason I attended […]

Reunited and Refueled : My IBS 2022 Experience

The Power is in The People I’ve attempted to describe the Builder Show experience to non-industry friends and family more than once, but I don’t think I’ve ever really succeeded. For starters, they don’t seem to understand why my face is smiling when my mouth is speaking words like “trade show” and “education session.” I […]

The ONeil Edit – January 28, 2022

And just like that…..January is over, IBS is around the corner and I’m feeling pretty pretty good about this year. Anyone else jumped on the SATC reboot bandwagon? I loved it! Between that and Emily in Paris my love of clothing and fashion was reinvigorated. There is already major outfit planning for IBS happening. I’m […]
