A digital marketing company is growing in Bloomington. Hanapin Marketing LLC plans to add up to 14 employees over the next two years, continuing a streak that included 23 new hires last year.

Most of the agency's current 60 employees are located at its downtown Bloomington office. Hanapin says demand for its paid search, paid social media and display program services is driving the growth. Since its founding in 2004, Hanapin says annual revenue has increased by double digits nearly every year.

Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton says "we are pleased to see one of Bloomington's leading technology companies continue to thrive and grow here in town. Hanapin is a great example of what we hope to see over and over again here in Bloomington - a locally grown startup becoming successful and creating opportunities for our city's great tech talent."

New digital advertising and administrative positions are slated to open up throughout the year. Hanapin is considering future expansion options that the company says could include a larger footprint in Bloomington. The company offers pay-per-click, e-commerce, remarketing, conversion rate optimization and lead generation services, as well as mobile and social advertising expertise. Hanapin has been offered up to $150,000 in conditional training grants from the Indiana Economic Development Corp.

Hanapin is considered a leader in the pay-per-click industry and hosts annual Hero Conferences, which focus on the PPC industry. Hero Conf Los Angeles is set for April 18-20 and Hero Conf London will be October 23-25.

      "Problems cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them," is attributed to Einstein over 75 years ago. This still holds true, particularly in challenging communications. Many people address conflict at the level it was created by rehashing and building more evidence for their ‘side’ of an argument. Repeating a position tends to intensify the separation of people.

    • Who Pays Debts After Death?

      If you have a mortgage on your house, what happens when you die?  What about a car lease or credit card debt?  Are your heirs required to pay off what you owe? What is the financial legacy that you will leave behind?  Your legacy could be the bequest of property or money, but it could also mean inheriting debt. It’s not uncommon for spouses or others to get bombarded with collection calls from creditors asking to pay the bills of a family member who has died.
