18 essential SEO analysis elements, 9 best competitor research tools, and 6 essential local business video tips for 2020 ...this is THE LATEST!

πŸ’― Jump Right into the good stuff!

πŸ”₯ Don’t settle for a website redesign that’s simply a β€œprettier” version of your existing site. Instead, invest in a website that will generate leads and drive the sales your business needs with the IMPACT Website Blueprint.

Whenever I get an email over the weekend from IMPACT CEO Bob Ruffolo, my initial reaction is always the same:


"Uh oh. What's on fire?"

(Sorry, Bob! You're the best, but I gotta keep it real.)

Thankfully, when I opened up Bob's email this past Saturday, there was no fire. In fact, he had a great idea.

In the past two months, you may or may not have noticed that we've been producing more content than usual. We did this because we wanted to arm you all with all of the expertise and insight you need to create the best 2020 strategy possible... and our normal publishing cadence wasn't going to cut it. 

So, before I share the three featured articles for today's issue, Bob suggested that I showcase some of the extra digital sales and marketing goodness you may have missed in the past 60 days

Thanks, Bob! πŸ˜˜
