As the winter months set in it’s nice to remember the warmer days of summer filled with fun and sun including our record-breaking Google Summer Camp. Leading the charge on GA4, our team of experts hosted a webinar in July and gathered with hundreds of attendees to help them learn more about how to prepare for GA4. Our team also provided an entire month of resources like newsletters, blogs, and podcasts to support our customers in the transition to GA4 and show them how to get the most out of Google and CallTrackingMetrics.

5 of Our Most Noteworthy Highlights of 2022

Each year our innovative teams work hard to bring customers not just what they need when it comes to call tracking and marketing attribution but also what they want. In addition, there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes to deliver value. Here are seven highlights from 2022: 

  1. New Office Space

At the end of 2021, we packed up and moved to a brand-new office space in Millersville, Maryland. We have now been in our new space for a full year and we love it! One of the benefits of the office space is that not only does it facilitate innovation, collaboration, and communication for our teams, but we’ve also been able to share this space with industry professionals. 

In December, we hosted the American Marketing Association of Baltimore’s Holiday Party as well as Naptown Scoop and Peake Social’s Holiday Sweater Party.  We look forward to doing more with organizations as well as bringing our customers into our new space to get a first-hand look at how CTM operates on a daily basis. 

  1. Partner Program

Our partner program completed its first full year in 2022.  This year we welcomed many new partners and engaged in numerous co-marketing opportunities with both new and tenured partners. Thank you to all of our new partners for joining us and to our more tenured ones for growing with us!  A lot of exciting things happened with our partner ecosystem this year. Some of the highlights include:

In addition to these highlights, we launched our partner directory, gave partners a second easy way to earn with the ability to submit leads to our sales team, and hosted regular events to connect our partners with internal stakeholders at CTM. We’ve built the foundation for our partner community and we look forward to 2023 being our best partner year yet.

  1. CTMmy Winners

As mentioned, our Core Values are at the center of everything we do at CTM. In fact, they’re so important to us that each year we celebrate them by honoring those employees who have demonstrated one of the core values the most. Let’s give one more shout-out to our 2022 CTMmy Winners

  1. James Wicks – We are Community-driven
  2. Kevin Pedini – Champion of Innovation
  3. Joanna Dinh – Champion of Innovation
  4. Matt Horstmann – We are Customer-centric
  5. Jeremy Wingate – We Work with Purpose

Who will win in 2023??

  1. Community Outreach and Social Justice Committee 

At CTM we have a very active and robust Community Outreach and Social Justice Committee. This group is dedicated to helping others in the community on a regular basis. In fact, for many of them, it’s an integral part of their lives. This year the group has grown and the number of lives they’ve been able to positively impact has grown along with it. 

One of the perks of being a CTM employee is that you get VTO time each year. This enables employees to take time during the week to engage with coworkers and other community members and help those who are less fortunate. CTM makes that possible for all employees. What’s more, employees love that they can bring their kids to some of the volunteer events, like making sandwiches for the homeless and working in community gardens. This helps them not just give back to others but to spend time with their children teaching them to do the same. 

We’re proud of how much good our team did in 2022 and here are a few of the highlights: 

Images of CTM employees volunteering using VTO time.
  • 22 FULL backpacks, including all of the school supplies, were donated for local children through Operation Backpack
  • 15 local children were ‘adopted’ and provided with their entire Christmas lists through The Arc – Maryland. (Families were also provided a gift card to purchase necessities for their Christmas dinners.)
  • Dozens of dogs and cats were played with and walked at BARCS animal shelter in Baltimore. (We also collected supplies, food, and warm bedding.)
  • Celebrated Juneteenth with a potluck, educational videos, and a comprehensive history quiz for onsite and remote employees.
  • Two full collection boxes were filled and donated through Anne Arundel County Food Bank to help local families facing food insecurity.
  • 1,000 Maryland families were supported during the holidays with $500 raised, gifts, and turkey deliveries through Santa’s Helpers Anonymous non-profit organization.

The committee is looking forward to doing even more in 2023. Based on 2022’s growth, it’s well within reach.  Here’s a look at 2022 and how the committee changed: 

  • Grew from 4 to 12 members
  • Experienced a 344% YoY increase of VTO usage 
  • Enjoyed a 53% company-wide participation rate
  • Matched employee donations to more than 15 different charities

Looking Forward to 2023

While 2022 certainly had its twists and turns, we are grateful for another successful year at CTM. We hope you look back on 2022 with great memories and look forward to 2023. At CTM, we have a few surprises in store for the new year so stay tuned to learn more. Learn more about call tracking and attribution or CallTrackingMetrics’ company culture.
