Hi there!

If you're reading this message, it's probably because you've blocked/disabled JavaScript in your browser.

That's cool and all – no judgement here. But the thing is, our site really needs JavaScript to show you all the neat stuff we do here at Kairos Media.

One especially neat thing? We set up our website to prevent all tracking tags and scripts from firing until after a user has consented to their use. So, if you wanted to check this page out with JavaScript enabled, we'll let you do that without winding up on any ad retargeting lists.

We even added a big, sticky banner to the first page you'll visit to explain all this...but the banner requires JavaScript, too. Sort of a chicken-and-egg situation, really...

Anyways, hope that's cool with you! Sincerely,

– The Management

The Internet Has Gone Foul. [Part I of IV]

“Let me tell you some things I find productive. Positive reinforcement. Negative reinforcement. Honesty. I’ll tell you some things I find unproductive: constantly worrying about where you stand based on inscrutable social clues, and then inevitably re-framing it all in a reassuring way so that you can get to sleep at night. No, I do … Read more

Cats Can Be Chonky, Your Website Should Not: Page Weight And Other Common SEO Pitfalls

I’ve been loath to write on the topic of Search Engine Optimization (or “SEO”) since opening my consultancy and starting this blog. In fact, if you flipped through the pages describing Kairos Media’s services, you’d find that they barely mention SEO at all, save for a passing reference when talking about website planning and architecture. There are … Read more

Are Conversions The Ultimate Vanity Metric?

Ahhhh, the “vanity metric”: that all-purpose filler of pitch-decks, scourge of data analysts, and lifeblood of Internet marketing charlatans everywhere. Countless articles have been written warning of the danger they pose to organizational decision-making. Untold volumes of digital ink have been spilled urging marketers to focus less on the numbers that make them feel good … Read more
