Inbound Marketing Trends: July 14, 2013
Happy Sunday, blog readers!
Here's a quick recap of last weeks news highlights; Facebook announced the roll out of Graph Search, the George Zimmerman case went to court, and .LA domain names are up for sale.
My favorite story of the week has to be the chair that Outback Steakhouse is in the process of developing that will gave you a hug every time you get a Facebook Birthday wish.
I'm just wondering, but where was this chair last week?
Without further ado, we’ve collected our inbound marketing trends and put them all in one convenient place.
Thank you for joining us on our blog this past week. We hope you have enjoyed what you’ve read, and hope to see you back here next week for the latest inbound marketing trends!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
