It's Time To Reimagine Email Newsletters For The 1:1 Economy
Email newsletters have a bad rap, but there's a massive opportunity to change this age-old perception.
It starts by completely redefining what a newsletter is and rethinking how this common communication that fills all of our inboxes daily can become a source of tangible, mutual value for both consumers and brands.

As a consumer, can you recall the last really good newsletter you received, or any for that matter? We all receive countless newsletters daily from brands we have bought products from, media publications and streaming entertainment we subscribe to, credit card companies we use, airlines we fly, car dealerships and the list goes on.

6 Tips For Productive Sales Calls
Despite the growing trends of multi-channel marketing and sales automation, one thing remains a pillar in marketing-sales calls
Although some might consider it outdated, there are potential customers who will still pick up calls from sales reps they haven't interacted with. It's also an excellent way to cement relationships with existing customers and introduce new products or services.

But sales calls aren't an easy task at all. They take time to carry out and sometimes you won't even reach the targets you want to speak to. This is why it's essential to ensure that you make your calls as productive as possible when you get through.

Should You Fire That Customer?
Many startups believe they can't end a customer relationship that is no longer a fit.
That is a mistake. Accepting the need to fire a customer can be difficult, especially given most startups compete tirelessly to acquire and retain new business. However, there are circumstances when it is appropriate to consider parting ways. The integrity of the business is always a priority, and this means that business relationships that no longer serve the company's goals can be ended, albeit as tactfully as possible.
