My wife received an email that a dress she had her eye on was on special (down from $279 to $79 – the reason I’m mentioning the price will become clear shortly).

But I’m so glad she got an obit on the NYT. She deserved it.
A thought provoking article on whether digital advertising is actually effective. One of the key benefits of digital channels is that it is all measurable. But is it really: Picture this. Luigi’s Pizzeria hires three teenagers to hand out coupons to passersby. After a few weeks of flyering, one of the three turns out to be a marketing genius. Customers keep showing up with coupons distributed by...
This post is a few years old now, but still a really good list.
1, 8, 12, 21, 37 are my favourites. 92 is a sobering reminder.
The Sydney HubSpot User Group (HUG) is on tomorrow night (details here).
I’ll be giving the HubSpot Tip of the Night – a quick 5 minute tip for using HubSpot.
The tip covers how to use HubSpot Deal Workflows to send internal notification emails, SMS, tasks and Slack updates.
