Netvantage’s Search Engine Marketing Playlist

It would be rare to walk into the Netvantage office and not see someone using headphones to listen to Pandora, Spotify, etc. Since we always seem to have something on in the background, we thought it would be fun to put together a Search Engine Marketing Playlist. If you look at the playlist closely, we listening to a wide variety of music, so it’s a good thing we all have headphones!

While I look at my Pandora and Spotify playlists I’ve noticed that I listen to a wide variety of music genres. The time of day is usually a deciding factor when choosing which music to listen to. Typically in the morning I enjoy listening to more mellow music. The Michael Buble station on Pandora is one of my favorites. Later in the work day I tend to listen to more upbeat music such as today’s hits or popular 90s music. I also often listen to Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift. Sometimes, I even catch myself listening to Disney music or broadway songs, which is usually when you will find me lip syncing at my desk. Abbey HadarAbbey Hadar

True story. When Joe and I started Netvantage we were stuck in a windowless room together all day. Our musical tastes didn’t align so much, so we slowly built the most ridiculous Pandora station ever by rating every single song for months straight until we had the ideal mix of hard rock and Enya. There’s nothing that quite goes with the ups and downs of a day as a search marketer like jumping between Tool and Moby. Now that I’m not sharing the office with Joe I try to keep things eclectic with a little underground rap, some heavy metal, a healthy dose of 80s and 90s rock and r&b. If I’m going to be shifting gears all day I feel like my music should, too. Adam HenigeAdam Henige

I rarely listen to music while I work, but if I do it’s definitely some 90s or early 00s alternative rock. Outside of work you can probably find me listening to some hardcore rap, but when I’m in the office it needs to be something a little more mellow. Austin SmithAustin Smith

This is really tough for me because I don’t have specific songs I like to listen to. My favorite thing to listen to while working is NPR (believe it or not). NPR is where I get most of my news on a daily basis so listening while I work keeps me pretty up to date on current happenings. When I need to truly concentrate on something and I can’t have talking or words playing, I choose to wear a nice set of headphones and blast dubstep or EDM until my ears bleed. Somehow, that helps me focus on whatever project I have in front of me. Jerod KaramJerod Karam

I think Adam’s response of our classic Enya/Tool channel when we sat 3 feet away from each other in our first office in Okemos says probably enough… But honestly today all I really listen to is the Bloomberg TV station in the background. It keeps me clued in on today’s business news and trends. Yup. I am boring. Joe FordJoe Ford

I have a pretty broad range of what I listen to on any given day so this isn’t easy to summarize. Classic rock, country, pop, I pretty much listen to anything as I’m working. My Classic Disney playlist on Spotify is my default, and yes, I often listen to the Taylor Swift station on Pandora, but in my defense, it’s mostly early 2000s songs on that station anyway. I listen to Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls probably at least twice a day and a Tarzan song at some point, because I love Phil Collins. (Disclaimer: I wouldn’t mind listening to all the classic Disney songs all day.) Kyna GarrettKyna Garrett

Full Disclosure: I usually listen to popular music from the 90s and 00s. I still know all the words to Britney Spears and *NSYNC so it’s easy to have on as background music. If I need something mellow I’ll listen to Andrew Ripp, William Tell, and Ben Rector’s Pandora stations. During the summer months, country music is usually my go to, so that is my most common Spotify station now. Some days, listening to white noise is the best thing for me too; I’ve found that rain on Simply Noise is best for drowning out whatever is going on around me. Lexie KimballLexie Kimball

I like and listen to just about all kinds of music, but I’m a big fan of classic rock and blues-rock, and I usually listen to that all day every day at work. Loudly. My go-to Spotify playlist at the moment is a mix of mostly Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and Eric Clapton. When I want to feel less like an old person I generally listen to alternative rock including the Black Keys, Twenty One Pilots, Cage the Elephant and Awolnation. Michael HallMichael Hall

My music collection is made up of almost all of the music genres. I can jump from listening to Amy Winehouse to DMX and then to Sublime. My top favorite music genres are Reggae and Alternative/Indie. Since I am a 90s baby, I will always have a special place in my heart for 90s music. I usually listen to new music when I am working. Whenever I feel like listening to something new, I will go on Spotify and listen to the music they have under the Discover channel. If I am not listening to new music on Spotify then I am listening to one of my playlists that I made pulled from all of my favorite artists. My favorite Pandora station is the Tennis (Pop) Radio Station. I like listening to that Pandora station at work because it gives me beach vibes when I am in the office. Michala WhiteMichala White
