A Look Back As Sūmèr Turns 6

We might not act like it, but Sūmèr is officially out of its toddler years! As we reach our sixth year of producing clear messaging for our amazing clients, we want to say thank you.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

Our team is so grateful to be able to wake up and do what we love each and every day. That’s a rare gift, and we don’t ever take it for granted.

The past year has brought excitement, fun and insightful events, education—and above all else: growth.

In the past few months, we’ve taken on some amazing, new clients and have added some talented new employees to the Sūmèr team. We are so excited to see what the rest of the year has in store!

In honor of our birthday, we’re sharing some of the top highlights of the past year:

Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses

As of just a few weeks ago, our Commander and Chief, Michelle Salater, graduated from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program. She would tell you it was, without a doubt, one of the most challenging few months of her life—but also the most rewarding.

[call out quote from Michelle] “After late nights burning the midnight oil [que grad school flashbacks], I’m finally a graduate of Goldman Sachs 10k Small Businesses. In just a few weeks, we’ve already seen huge results from the growth plan I created, and I can’t wait to see what the next few months have in store!”

Digital Marketer’s WarRoom and T&C

We’d be remiss not mention the Digital Marketer events over the past year. As many of you may know, Michelle is a part of the WarRoom mastermind group. She prefers to call them, “her peeps.” After each meeting, our team has a TON of new super-ninja marketing ideas to implement.

The Traffic & Conversion Summit in February did not disappoint, as usual—be sure to visit this blog article where we shared all the big takeaways from the event. And where else can you go and hear Daymond John from Shark Tank share his story and chat about brand growth strategies? Or meet Daymond John in person—talk about a highlight of the year!

BLEND Conference

In September, Michelle had the opportunity to speak at the BLEND Conference.

Her session, Sell Your Story, Grow Your Business: How to Create Engaging Content That Attracts and Converts, shared simple and effective ways to create strategic marketing campaigns with compelling story-driven copy for maximum ROI.

Running with the Big Dogs

Have we tooted our own horn enough yet? Last one. Promise.

Because we are just going to straight up, shamelessly gloat here. In the past few months, we have noticed increased mentions in some industry blog articles and social media posts alongside many industry leaders.

Michelle’s expertise was recently spotlighted in Internet Marketing with Gauher Chaudhry’s blog post, 10 Quick VSL Hacks That Can Triple Your Sales—alongside the likes of Ryan Deiss, David Frey, and Vishen Lakhiani.
