 Inbound Marketing Trends: September 29, 2013Happy Sunday!

Crowds, disorder, and a mess of discounted HD flatscreen TVs. We hope everyone managed to withstand the Black Friday/Cyber Monday retail madness this past week!

What a busy, busy week it has been. Our office tree is up, I found the time to deck the halls of my own home,and somewhere in between I managed to fill up our blog with a fresh round of this week's inbound marketing trends.

It's easy to get wrapped up (pun intended) in the chaos that comes with the holiday season, which is why we wanted to stop and take the time to catch up, and touch base with all of you!

This week Fox announced that they have officially filled up all of their TV ad inventory for the Super Bowl XLVIII, Newsweek released their plan to return back to print, and Amazon debuted their "drone delivery" plan.

I'm not sure about you, but the thought of gift-bearing drones whizzing through the air is a bit scary. Oh, technology.

While all of that was going on, we kept busy prowling the Internet for the latest trending industry news. We've compiled a list of the most interesting inbound marketing trends, events, and releases from this past week.
