We would also like to remind everyone about our newest 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. Now my co-hosts and I as we answer these questions are not trying to dole out free consulting, sometimes for brevity the best we can offer is a direction or a suggested authoritative resource to continue to answer your question with. It’s meant to be help and brief. So I hope you check out the first installment from this past Monday at www.hospitalitydigitalmarketing.com/minute or bit.ly/hdmminute
