Welcome to another weekly wrapup of internet marketing news.
This is the way I process everything that flies by during the week.
If you’re an experienced marketer, you probably read or know much of this stuff, at least in some areas. Perhaps the categories and icons can help you zoom in on things you missed.
If you’re a new marketer, or someone outside marketing who is eager to learn, this is a great place to "level up" quickly. Only the best resources are included, so you can’t go wrong.
Either way, this is one of the best places to find audio podcasts and video content. Tired of the music on your morning commute? Load up some podcasts and learn something new.
