That Crisp Autumn Air – Jeffalytics Newsletter for August 2016

Depth of Knowledge Newsletter
Volume 4.8
August of 2016


I don’t know about you, but fall is my favorite time of the year. The weather becomes more tolerable, seasons change, and I get energized thinking about how the current year has gone to date – and how things are looking for next year.Over the past week I have been reflecting on 2017 while traveling through the Nordics (currently writing this from Tallinn in Estonia). It’s wonderful here.Interacting with the many awesome marketers and analysts of Denmark, Finland and Estonia has given me perspective on where this industry is going, and where I should focus my energy moving forward.

Let’s get to the resources!

Content from Jeffalytics

Luckily placing hundreds of newsletter resources on dedicated pages on our website i.e. making hundreds of outbound links to external domains within a day did NOT hurt our Domain Authority nor got us penalized (knock on wood).

So folks, please keep linking to other people’s valuable stuff – because it’s what web was initially incepted for, quarter a century ago.

In our Jeffalytics Podcast we hosted Kirk Williams, rising PPC Star, Aaron Weiche, VP of subjectively the greatest digital marketing association ever called MnSearch*, and Yehoshua Coren who you might also know as @AnalyticsNinja.

*Disclosure: Jeffalytics is a co-founder of MnSearch.

We also published a guest post at the Leadfeeder blog. 6 things we love about Leadfeeder. It was nice to meet the Leadfeeder team while visiting Helsinki earlier this week.


Have you told someone about this newsletter yet?

Most of my readers (like you) are fairly advanced marketers looking for cutting edge techniques. You may see me offering courses or writing content and think you are too smart for it. You probably are!

But what about new marketers looking to get started? Know any of them? If so, please pass the word.
