Personalized Sales & Marketing Recommendations, Your Ultimate Guide to Google Ads, & Twitter Is Testing New Layouts ...This Is THE LATEST!

Greetings and salutations, ladies and gents! I have returned.

Over the course of the past two weeks, I bought a house (complete with a firepit!), stayed in a tiny cabin in the woods without my smartphone or internet access, and began setting up my new home office...

Admittedly, I still have several boxes of my beloved books to unpack, but overall, I am in love with my new working space (and my new desk). Also, this is kind of crazy, but my downstairs bathroom has a bluetooth speaker... in the ceiling.  

Anyway! This week has been all about getting back in the saddle for me -- and I'm sure you know how it goes after vacation, right? You only have time to devote attention to the stuff that actually matters and will make a real difference in what you're working on right in this moment.

So, in this issue, I only included the most actionable and relevant content we've produced in the past week that will have an immediate impact on your digital marketing and sales programs.

Here's Marcus Sheridan to tell you more about the scorecard -- what it is, how it works, and what you can expect from it...

There's a good chance that a few of you have been included in Twitter's low-key testing of new desktop homepage layout designs for its conversation-based social platform. What's interesting, however, is that the Twitter team appears to be testing multiple versions of different layouts, not just one.
