A note from that creepy guy
In August 2015, I started ending these newsletters with the words "I love you." For a B2B company, it was a bit out there since B2B often means make your content as mind-numbingly boring as possible.
But thankfully, the response to our irreverent, conversational tone and the I love yous has been almost universally positive (only 4 negative emails and I've said those words 62.3 million times at this point).
The 4th negative response came this week.
Oh well. Love ain't for everyone.
I'd also like to remind everyone of the following:
This is our last newsletter of 2016 (we'll be back next Tuesday). Thanks for reading and see you in 2017.
But before we go, below is a boatload more data. If you want to get promoted or impress the boss in 2017, give some of these a listen.
