Are you enjoying Shark Week? We sure are! Here at ManoByte, Shark Week marks an exciting time for us when we get together, review our work, talk about strategy, and of course Sharks! Most people jump right to the Great White and we don't blame them. Made famous by Jaws, the Great White is extremely iconic, more so than the Shark I've been tasked to analyze: the Whale Shark. 

If you see a Whale Shark swimming toward you in the water, trust me, you would be terrified as that massive shadow glides slowly across the water with its enormous mouth open wide for lunch. You will be happy to know they are filter feeding and eat mostly plankton, so you're in no danger!


Whale Sharks, like our Inbound Consultants, are calm and patient. Their slow and powerful swimming is calculated like our strategies are guaranteed to prove ROI on our clients' digital marketing spending. Whale Sharks aren't dangerous -- like our Inbound best practices they are reliable. 

Whale Sharks filter through plankton like I filter through content on the internet every day. I'm always hunting for the tastiest morsels to post on social media accounts. Did you know a young Whale Shark eats about 46 pounds of plankton in one day? We might drink that much coffee in a day, but further measuring is required to know for sure. 

The Whale Shark's skin is marked with pale yellow spots and stripes which are unique to each individual, just like us here at ManoByte where everyone is different. We all have passions, and hobbies, and quirks. You can see more about our crazy, individual personalities on our team page

Whale Sharks are the biggest fish in the ocean! They hold many records for sheer size in the animal kingdom. Not to toot our own horn, but ManoByte is a "big fish" in the ocean, too, because we're a HubSpot Platinum Partner. 

Before you design an Inbound Marketing strategy, remember to be like the Whale Shark. There's a lot of value in slow, calculated strategies and not moving too fast, or jumping the gun just to get cracking on a campaign. Being calm and patient in stressful situations is key. And on social media, blogs, and in content offers don't be afraid to show your "stripes", you know, your company personality that makes you great.  

When you feel like you need a bigger fish to take you under its fin, ManoByte is always ready to help.

Enjoy the rest of Shark Week! And don't forget to watch our newest ManoByte Shark Week Video.
