A Southern Wyomingite

ABOUT ME
Hi Everyone, my name is Chance Wright. I am a Digital Marketing Concentration MBA Graduate student at RIT graduating in May 2019. I did my Undergraduate degree which is a BFA in Advertising Photography at RIT as well.
I am originally from a small town called BigHorn, Wyoming. I lived there until high school where I left for a boarding school in New Hampshire called Holderness School. During this time I also moved to Northern Virginia. At Holderness, I found RIT and came for the photography program, and I have been here ever since. 
In conjunction to school, I am also the Vice President and Co-Founder of a Non-Profit called The Shore Foundation. I have an active photography business, specializing in landscape, architecture, and nature photography. I started my own company, ATL/WYO Productions, which is a film and television production company, which I plan to run after graduation in LA. Lastly, I am a New York State firefighter in the town of Chili, NY.

THE SHORE FOUNDATION
We are a certified 501(c)(3) Non-Profit in New York State. Our mission is to provide computers into the hands of those in need. Founded between myself and my roommates in the Spring of 2018, we have successfully given away ~20 computers to high school age students who were unable to purchase them themselves. We plan to attempt to set the Guinness World Record for most computers donated in 24 hours, with a mass donation event where we will give away somewhere around 500 computers. I encourage you to visit our website and learn more about the cause, as well as ways in which you can help. 

MY HOBBIES
In my little free time that I do get, I do have a few hobbies which I love to do. I am a recreational skydiver and speed flyer. I skydive out west of Rochester near a town called Barre, NY. Speedflying, which is similar to paragliding is practiced in mountainous areas with steep slopes and little trees.

Shayne Mogilski, Please Hire Me

Hello

My name is Shayne Mogilski, and I’m currently a third year New Media Marketing student at the Rochester Institute of Technology. I’ve studied hard in classes to understand the material, and not just remember it. Classes such as Internet Marketing have really helped me understand New Media Marketing. RIT has also helped me grow with chances to lead. This includes being president of RIT’s Sports Enthusiasts Club, along with responsibilities for RIT’s Phi Sigma Pi chapter. Through the good and bad times, I would have to say that RIT has changed my life significantly in the last 3 years and I’m almost ready to reach the next chapter in my career. Speaking of which…

Business Experience

Over the past few years, I’ve gained business experience in many different forms. While I was a senior in high school, I created a business plan for Traverse Puzzle HuntsTraverse Puzzle Hunts was designed to plan unique and well-detailed events at a low price. I’ve also been responsible for the marketing plan for a potential public electronic service known as TechHub. This business plan won the first annual best business plan competition at RIT, which was an incredible accomplishment in only my first year. Along with contributing to multiple other business plans, I’ve also worked as a New Media Specialist for Legacy Financial Planning. Legacy Financial Planning is respected throughout the financial community nationwide and are run by two of the most successful financial planners in the industry. I hope to only increase my experience with a paid Co-Op opportunity in the near future.

Matthew Missert

Introduction:
Hi! the name’s Matt. I’m 4th year undergrad student at the Rochester Institute of Technology. I’m finishing up my degree in New Media Marketing (fancy title for marketing with a technical focus) paired with a dual minor in International Business and Communications.
I’ve spent time working in the B2B field, but most of my education has centered around the consumer market. With the work I’ve done through RIT these past 4 years, I’m aiming towards working in the international marketing industry, working to introduce products and experiences to new emerging markets around the globe. (or across the world, if you know… flat earth and all.)

I was born in Buffalo NY and briefly lived in Hamburg NY before moving to Laconia New Hampshire around 2001. I came to RIT largely for the co-op program.
Growing up in New Hampshire, I’ve adopted a strong passion for being outdoors. You can find me hiking and fishing in the summer and snowboarding or skating in the winter.

My Future:

I’ve been struggling with answering the “what are your plans after graduation” question for some time now and to be honest I still don’t know what I want to do. I plan on moving back to New England, closer to Boston in order to join the professional world, but at the same time I’m drawn to the idea of packing a bag and traveling as much as I can before my student loan payments start to kick in.

Get to Know Me!

I’m on all social media platforms, and have my own website too!

Unsuspecting SEO Pitfalls

Are you stumped about why your SEO program isn’t working as effectively as it should be? Below are 4 SEO Pitfalls you should avoid if you want your program to be effective –

  1. Web Designer Out, SEO Partner In

First of the SEO pitfalls would be that that we rely too much on web designers as opposed to our SEO partners. Much as we’d like to seek out the best web designer out there, they do not have training in our SEO world. It’s usually best to consult your SEO partner for every step that you take, just so that you have the expert opinion.

  1. Ego Phases Out, Traffic In

Usually, what you think is important may not usually be the phrases that drive the traffic in. Second of the SEO pitfalls most commonly seen is when people use very common phrases and think that it is going to give them top rankings. Stop using clichéd ones and try to see which keywords/phrases are the actual traffic drivers. Make sure you pin your program to more keywords/phrases. This usually helps.

  1. Update It Like Tweets

Did you finish your program and forget all about it? The third of the SEO pitfalls! That’s a huge mistake. To drive traffic efficiently, you need to constantly update your keywords for one main reason – It isn’t going to take your competitors long enough to figure your set and use it against you. By constantly updating, you not only infuse better traffic, but you also save yourself from being overtaken by another company!

  1. Face Your Reviews

The trend these days is for customers to post reviews online. Whether it is a good or a bad review, you can convert it to benefit your company if you REACT to it. The last of the SEO pitfalls would be to ignore these reviews. Your online reputation can be built by responding to the customer needs posted. This makes your company more trustworthy. Tracking what people are saying about your business also helps as you can either facilitate their thinking or try to change it depending on the situation. This also gives your business a positive customer perception, thus leading to a greater potential to appear in searches!

How To Be A Hazard. To, uh, Yourself.

I recently started living by myself. People say that when you start living by yourself, you discover new things about yourself, like a whole wave of realizations, deep intellectual reflections etc.

Nope. Apparently THAT isn’t going to be my thing.

I seem to have a talent in finding new ways to be a hazard. To literally the only person in the house – Me.

As always, I decided to jot down my list of ‘How To Be A Hazard. To Yourself.’

Disclaimer: Imitating instances mentioned in this post may induce some serious injuries. Do not try at home. Subject has already done that for you. 

  1. Leave Sharp Objects Lying Around

    People who know me, know that I’m hopelessly absent-minded. Below are pictures of an incident that actually occurred. Uh, yes, I have managed to become a lot more responsible after that. Uh no, it hasn’t repeated. *looking up at the sky*

    Please don’t tell my mom. Thanks.

    Doing some cool stuff ‘cuz joblessness

    A rare picture of subject doing work

    peek-a-boo!

    Subject MAY have sat on it. That’s confidential information.
  2. Play ‘Live-Life-Dangerously’ Kind-of Games

    Okay I really love this one game I invented.
    *looks at mom’s death stare*
    Okay, um, this game is not cool. I repeat. Not cool at all.
    *sheepish grin*
    So what you have to do is try to cut vegetables with your weaker hand. You keep trying to decrease your cutting time as the days go by.
    Not that I have tried doing this multiple times, of course.
    Following are pictures of a random subject attempting to play the game.
    (mom, I swear, that isn’t me!)

    Subject is excited to cut with her left hand!

    I doubt subject focused this much in her engineering.

    Subject may be rethinking life decisions.

    Well, I hope you guys liked my post!
