by Todd Hartley • March 21, 2018

Do you know your target personas? If not, it’s probable that your marketing isn’t reaching who you think it should. And you know what that means? Wasted money.

Without personas, your web pages and landing pages will suffer and lack direction for the user.

Could Censorship be the Kiss of Death for Facebook? (Ep. 141)

by Todd Hartley • March 16, 2018

Nobody likes it when Big Brother shows up and censors them.

Remember when you could go online and basically say whatever you wanted without fear of being deleted…and then all of a sudden, Big Brother showed up.

One by one websites started censoring their users, stopping them from ever expressing opposing positions.
