Branded for Excellence

by Zach Wellman

Coming into a new office can lead to some major culture shock. Stone Ward’s Camp Reality internship program is designed for us to know that we would be making a difference and working on actual client projects, not coffee runs. While you may still have to get coffee, it’s because you’re on a commercial shoot at one in the morning, and the talent is beginning to get tired.

Should Your Business Use Paid Search?

by Brian Pappalardo

It’s undeniable that the digital marketing landscape has had a complete overhaul in the last 20 years. There are more ways to market your business now than ever before — television, social media, online banner ads, print ads, paid search, Hulu, Pandora and the list goes on.

Fried Chicken, Anyone?

by Jasmine Conley

Interning at Stone Ward has allowed me to experience a lot of cool and exciting opportunities, but working with Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken for the past eight weeks has hands down been my favorite.

Three Times to Say “Yes” in Work and Life

by Peyton Ellis

As a Camp Reality intern, a phrase I’ve heard many times around Stone Ward is “we don’t say ‘no’ too much.”

In one way, this phrase means saying “yes” to taking on obligations, meeting clients’ needs and helping co-workers. It means getting a job done well and on time with a positive attitude.

Social Video Viral Trends

by Jasmine Conley

Let’s venture back in time…a time that was much simpler. A time before Facebook ruled the world. The time is 2013. Believe it or not, social media hasn’t always been a thing, but viral video trends have always been a social media favorite. 

Building Good at Our House

by Rachel Ruddell

Being “good” at Stone Ward is just part of the culture. In work, in life and in service, employees are seeking to build good all around them. Through Camp Reality, I have been exposed to many good things. But, out of all the good moments I have experienced, my favorite has been serving a meal at Our House.
