If You’re Not Using a Facebook Messenger Sequence, You’re Throwing Away Leads. This is How to Get Started.

Do you ever think about how much money you might be wasting on Facebook? I’ve done it. And I’ve hated myself for it. It happens. You pour time and money into an ad campaign only for it to fall flat on its face. Often, that’s not your fault – it can be difficult to stand out on a site that has billions of users.

The Five Minute Guide to Installing Google Tag Manager

google-tag-manager

Marketing campaigns live and die by data. One of the recent campaigns I was managing drove me to open up my analytics report every hour. (Holiday season, anyone?) Data can be numbing, but it’s also necessary. Without data, there’s no way to easily determine the health of a campaign. As a marketer, the more data you have at your disposal, and the easier it is to manage data, the easier your job is. Unfortunately, the more tracking and optimization tags you add to the site, the more you have to deal with code bloat. That’s why I want to introduce…

apple-hasnt-tweeted-yet

Apple may go head to head with other manufacturers like Samsung to gain consumer attention, but Apple has never had a race-to-the-bottom price war.
