Today is Peter Falk birthday. Some of you might know him as Lieutenant Columbo, a polite, appearing goofy, homicide detective, sets out to solve some of the most brutal, cunning and covert murders in Los Angeles.
Columbo used a simple, yet powerful tactic that is used often by marketers (online and offline), even today, as he walks out, returning for: “Just one more thing…”.
A few things happening:
1) Netflix no longer offers a free trial — pay up or fuck off.
2) Why Google Cache lies to you and what to do about it (if anything).
3) Facebook & Instagram drop support for WordPress embeds.
4) Why your ad revenues plummeted due to GDPR TCF 2.0.
5) WordPress can now turn blog posts into tweetstorms automatically.
6) Messenger overhauls its logo, adds new chat features.
Have an awesome weekend!

Once entrepreneurs start, they have a hard time stopping.
But that doesn’t mean they never get stuck.
For business owners, it’s a familiar feeling. When you’re strapped for cash and have to build your business on a budget. When once-frequent sales suddenly become scarce. When a pandemic forces you to shutter your doors. When you feel like you’ve exhausted all your options and are running in one place.
