The Constant of Change, Part 2
By Rob Bettis • Issue #16 • View online
The constant of change strikes again. I am thrilled to be restarting this newsletter.
I have sorely missed sharing tidbits and discussions with my you, my peers, as our industry evolves. So much is changing in marketing - especially digital - and I want to empower you by curating and distilling that information to an actionable level.
The newsletter will no longer be weekly, rather it will be on an as-needed schedule. As relevant news surfaces, I will collect it and put it into context. And it will be shared timely, in newsletter-sized bites.
In our return issue, I want to reach into the backlog a bit and share some highlights from the last few months. Thanks for allowing me into your inbox. And thank you for sharing this publication with your colleagues.
