Last week I went to a live event. It's been around 3 years since the last Marketing Profs B2B Summit, and it was comforting to return. A lot of anxiety, nervousness, and trying not to be awkward as everyone returned to "normal."

I learned a lot of useful things, the wrap up will be in tomorrow's podcast including some very effective tips on managing LinkedIn ad campaigns. Also a great tip that encouraging replies to your email campaigns is a great way to improve your account authority and improve deliverability.

It was a pleasure to catch up with a bunch of new friends, and some old ones that it's been way too long since I've hung out with last. Here's hoping that you have a chance to catch up with those you've missed soon.


P.S. Direct mail has always been one of the most fun parts of marketing (I can't be the only one here that's had the fun of a 'get there before midnight postal run'?) I'm happy to welcome The Mailworks, a woman owned and operated full service mail shop as sponsor of the show and newsletter, more to come on that!

The old-school way of doing it doesn’t. The pricing is convoluted. Juggling vendors is a nightmare. Managing creative is a hassle. And worst of all, your mailings show up late?!

Fun Stuff

I watch a lot of Rom-Coms because they are met with little resistance by the other dwellers in my home. I thought this going to be the standard fare until it took a hard right turn at 1:02, it looks hilarious.

I had skipped it at first but when I heard Lower Decks is doing a crossover with Strange New Worlds I decided to check it out. Absolutely loaded with Easter Eggs for Trek fans. Kind of like Simpsons/Futurama meets Trek if that's you're thing. Definitely not for kids though.

Phil has both a new season dropping on Netflix and his book this week. If you're into cooking and travel you've got to check it out.

Thanks for listening!
