Matt Lodge: Digital Marketing Analyst

WHO AM I?

I am a Digital Marketing Analyst at Seafoam Media. It’s my job to convert measurable data into actionable results for our clients.

MY MISSION AT SEAFOAM:

I want to ensure that our clients have every advantage possible in a competitive digital landscape. My mission is to use data-driven approaches to create a seamless marketing plan that grabs customers, no matter how they’re searching or browsing.

WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO:

I’ve always loved solving problems. Diving into data and numbers to find ways to move the needle for our clients creates unique challenges and gives me the opportunity to find new solutions to age-old problems.

MY QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:

Prior to joining Seafoam Media, I worked at a direct marketing agency in New York City for 4 years. I learned classic methods for reaching customers and growing brands.

I also worked for the largest online chess website, Chess.com, for 4 years. I worked extensively on growing our online presence along with managing our analytics for our streaming video content.

IN MY FREE TIME…

I play a lot of chess, despite being deeply mediocre at it. I’m in a bowling league, despite being deeply mediocre at that, as well. I love spending time with my fiance and my dog, which I am fantastic at.

MY MISSION AT SEAFOAM:

To maintain a graceful and professional presence while going above and beyond to both make clients happy and collaborate with the team in a positive manner. Basically, to be awesome at my job and continue learning throughout this journey I have been lucky to embark upon.

WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO:

I love interacting with people, understanding the dynamics between clients' and Seafoam's ultimate goals, and managing team tasks so that we are all working together to adhere to the philosophies set in place by Seafoam. I want to be the bridge that helps lead everyone safely to the other side. :-)

MY QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:

I have experience in digital marketing, content writing, coding, and client relations. I believe my plethora of experience is vital in working to be a successful and vital addition to my clients' teams.

IN MY FREE TIME…

I spend time with my puppy Piper, Roku & chill, cook spicy things, write "stuff," read memoirs, watch horror movies, hike when I am lucky enough to be in the mountains, travel (ultimate goal: Machu Picchu in 1 year + Belize!), and enjoy being an "amateur photographer."

How Logos Affect the Consumer Decision Making Process

Head with lightbulbs flying in. Consumer decision making process Seafoam Media
Can the consumer decision making process be affected when our brain processes the image of a brand’s logo? Take a look at the 50 most iconic brand logos of all time. Chances are, you recognized each and every one, and when you glanced at them, something quickly triggered up in your head. The sensation you felt was an emotional response, which connects brands to certain memories of yours! For example, seeing the red bullseye associated with Target could make you think about warm, comfy sweaters, and how you can’t wait to get another one next time you go out shopping. What’s even more amazing is that this all happens in the blink of an eye…literally! An eye blinks at the speed of about 400 milliseconds, which is the same amount of time it takes for your brain to process all the information associated with recognizing a brand logo.
We may not consciously recognize it, but logos do affect the consumer decision making process in a deeper way than we previously thought. After all, we’re more likely to buy from known, trusted brands, and seeing a logo we’re familiar with lights up multiple parts of our brain at once. As a small business owner or entrepreneur, this is a crucial detail to keep in mind: if your logo isn’t simple, well designed, and/or memorable, your customers are going to have a much harder time recognizing you and associating your brand with certain feelings.
So what’s happening when these areas are activated in our cranium? Below you’ll find an infographic from LogoMaker, which dives into the fascinating process that occurs when your brain spots a logo.
