Growing Up jhP

Nine years ago, an enthusiastic recent college grad started working at our front desk answering the phone. Over time, her energy and can-do attitude made us trust her with new responsibilities she was interested in. We gave her plenty of room and support to grow while she blazed a trail deep into the world of digital marketing.

With a competitive spirit and an eye to the future, Alissa Menke became the youngest shareholder jhP has had. She now leads our Digital Media team. While it’s easy for us to say what we love about Alissa, it was a nice surprise to discover her personal blog saying what she loves about us. After bribing her with cookies, Alissa agreed to let us share her post with you. Congrats on nine years, Alissa!

Online Tracking Is Just Creepy … or Is It?

614JHP026_OnlineTrackingBlogHeader2_dvAwhile back, my brother Aaron (a technology geek) and I (also geeky) had a conversation about ad targeting on the Internet. My parents listened as we discussed the ways Google (and the like) keep track of the websites we visit and the things we search for, and then serve us ads they think will be relevant to us based on that information.
