[box type=”note” width=”100%”] Welcome to the Feb. 1 – Feb. 7, 2014 issue of Weekly Online Marketing Roundup. The idea came to me spontaneously, and after doing quick research – I couldn’t find anything similar, nothing that would be updated on consistent basis, or have new content that is released throughout the according week. I’ve taken this in my own hands, and I hope to make the best of it.
This roundup takes a ‘little’ bit of time to put together, I’d appreciate if you could share it or pass it on to your friends if you found it useful, engaging or simply interesting. Thank you!
What a week, I’ve to say that I have been so caught up doing other things – I hardly paid attention to what is going on within the online marketing channels. I guess I must be doing pretty good for myself, not to have to bother with reading and following any new stuff?
There was SuperBowl I believe, but what do I care – I’m from Europe. Hardly any hype about ‘SuperBowl’ on this side of the planet.
I guess it’s all the same, we can work on that.
