Make Your Mark Highlights – 2021
How We Made Our Mark in 2021
There has never been a better time to think big about the kind of impact we can have, as the nature of business has changed. Today, making your mark is less about “climbing the career ladder” and more about ambition, opportunity, entrepreneurship, risk taking, results, and relationships. Here are some highlights of how our team made an impact on our company, customers, teammates, industry, and communities in 2021.

Great Culture. Great Opportunities
Blast has has made its internal culture a high priority, one that fosters transparency, honesty, and welcomes new ideas. In my time here the consulting team assembled at Blast has impressed me at every turn and is of the highest caliber. All of this coupled with a great benefits package has made my time at Blast enjoyable.
Culture is King!.
The Culture of Blast is amazing. From the moment I interviewed I could tell that they have a relaxed, family like culture. Work – Life balance is a priority. I was a bit worried about being remote, but soon realized that Blast has figured to make everyone feel like part of the team. There are many opportunities to Evolve into whatever you want to be.
Excellent people, Exciting work
Without a doubt, the best part about working at Blast is the people I get to work with every day. There has never been a time when I had a question or a problem to solve and I felt like I was on my own to figure it out. The attitude I’ve always felt here is if you succeed, we all succeed. Everyone is quick and willing to jump in and brainstorm creative solutions.
With much of the world still navigating the challenges of an ongoing pandemic, our team was able to continue Blast’s purpose: “Make Your Mark.” While maintaining local and state safety protocols, our teammates made a positive impact on our clients, our communities, and each other.

Using Personalization to Welcome Back Returning Visitors Drives Success
A popular automotive brand wanted to better meet the expectations of their returning users by personalizing the digital experience. The company understands that their website visitors often require multiple sessions to fully explore their fleet of vehicles and determine appropriate next steps. Rather than presenting returning visitors with the same “one-size-fits-all” experience when they re-enter the site, the company wanted to personalize the digital experience to make it easier for returning visitors to pick up where they left off.
Personalized Recommendations Across the Digital Experience Results in More Than 5x ROI
A popular health and wellness brand recognized the need to EVOLVE their digital experience in a big way and was looking for ways to scale personalization for their U.S. online stores, with an eye towards eventually expanding it globally.
