It’s that time! Thanksgiving has passed and the winter holidays are right around the corner. While this is typically a time for fun, laughs, and to eat just a little too much pie, it can also be a frustrating one for many of us in the Internet marketing community. Because it now becomes our burden to go home and explain to our family, friends and loves ones what it is we do for a living. Again. For the millionth time.

I don’t know about you, but as I enter my 7th year in the industry, I’m getting a little tired of having the same old conversation. A conversation that always sounds exactly like this.

Stop me when it sounds familiar.

I know I’m not alone in the sheer horror of this. What tactics do you use to help your family understand? Does it work? At all? Please?
