๐Ÿ”ฅ Hot off the presses
โœ‚๏ธ Business leaders everywhere are looking at their budgets so they can cut anything right now that isn't making them money. That means you, marketers. Now, more than ever, you need to join forces with sales. So, please listen to me when I say you need to attend the Virtual Selling Summit on June 23. Use the code ONETEAMONEDREAM to get your ticket for only $29.

I guess... I won't wear ties going forward?

I was going to connect this odd, nonsensical brain-breaker of a fortune back to the fact that, like, the golden rule of websites โ€” from UX to copy โ€” is to never make a visitor think in any way. (They should know exactly what actions to take without thinking and should understand what all of your copy and messaging means without thinking, and blah, blah, blah.)

But, truthfully... it's the day before vacation. And I'm just confused.

So, no big lessons in this issue. No wild, hard-hitting truths. Tonight, I'm just a girl standing in front of a fortune cookie, asking it to make some freaking sense.  

And now, here's THE LATEST...

For many SMBs, this is the age old question: What needs should I hire for, and what needs should I outsource? When it comes to marketing, you are not dealing with a monolith. Some marketing tasks make sense to outsource, while others are darn-near essential to take in house. In this candid interview with IMPACT Account Executive Marc Amigone, get an honest overview of what factors to consider when choosing the right marketing solution for your company โ€” agency or in-house.

๐Ÿ‘‰ "What do we need to know about Basecamp's new email service called HEY?" (3-minute read)

Basecamp just introduced a new way to email called HEY, and for once, it really is different. Really different. The overall philosophy of HEY is that we should not be getting as many emails as we currently do and HEY makes it easy to have full control over that. Control is what sets HEY apart from other email services. In this article, IMPACT UX Designer Joel Waggener dishes out everything you need to know about HEY, Basecamp's game-changing email service.
