What Are We Thinking About? 🤔 You!
Vahe Habeshian
Director of Publications

Hello again, discerning marketers!

This week, we at MarketingProfs are in the midst of our annual company meeting, Zooming along from presentation to presentation, reviewing the unspeakable year that 2020 was, outlining some ambitious plans for 2021, and enjoying team-building activities (virtual scavenger hunt, anyone?).

A common theme so far? How we can serve YOU, our wonderful community of marketers: our members PRO or otherwise; newsletter subscribers and readers; B2B Forum, webinar, and virtual event participants; Master Class, workshop, and other training attendees... In short, all of you, without whom there is no MarketingProfs.

We have some amazing stuff in the works, and I can't wait for you to begin experiencing them in the year ahead.

Before it takes final shape, we'll try a few approaches to see what works best.

In today's issue, here is what you'll see:

Of course there's much more. Scroll down so you don't miss it.
