We would also like to remind everyone about our content piece called, “Monday’s Marketing Minute”. Inspired by all of the questions we get on the this podcast and on the live show that we either cannot get to or are repeats of topics or inspired from our conversations. We have found that so many industry professionals like yourself have questions that from time to time they don’t either have the resources available to get an answer or don’t trust the source of the possible answer. It’s meant to be helpful and brief. So I hope you check out this past Mondays at www.hospitalitydigitalmarketing.com/minute or bit.ly/hdmminute
