The promise of inbound marketing is a lure that attracts businesses of all kinds, but few understand the efforts it takes to be successful. After a few blog posts, they flame out and grumble “We tried content marketing, but it didn’t really work for us.” I hear this from prospective clients all the time. And I get it. Business owners are skeptical of making an investment that might not pan out, so they get cautious and are ready to pull the plug at the first sign that they’re wasting money. Honestly, they probably are wasting money. There’s an epidemic of half-hearted content marketing out there that’s giving the whole inbound philosophy a bad name. So when I hear potential clients say that they tried content marketing but didn’t see results, this is how I respond. Why Your Content Marketing Efforts Might Be Missing the Mark Content marketing is not new.

Everybody’s all abuzz about the new Mac desktop-specific email client made just for Gmail. Various folks that have tried it seem to be raving about how great it is.

Several times recently I’ve heard about something unusual happening email delivery-wise at academic domains that was new, and wasn’t being seen at non-academic domains on the same lists.
