Real quick before you dive in, I was hoping you might help me make this newsletter better. Think of the newsletters you actually read, enjoy and refer. What is it about them? What do you think I could do differently to bring you utility/support? Example…say we had a section where if you needed help w/ something, I could include it. Okay, maybe that’s a sucky idea. If we use your idea, you’ll be drippin’ in OG swagu.

Here are some of the kick-ass things OG’ers did in February:
@misterizzo helped relaunch lamerde.co and generated new sales as a result 💰💰
@sdbrownlie stayed awake for 24 hours with his colleague Garrett for their charity fundraiser interviewing/hosting presentations by 24 SEOs (almost – a couple couldn’t make it in the end) for St Jude’s – https://www.24hoursofSEO.com 👌
If you folks want to appear above, share your accomplishments with us every Friday. Note the format above. The easier you make it for me to figure out why you are awesome, the more likely it is that you’ll find yourself here.
Each month I try to bring you my favorite articles, books and casts. I am a total information glutton. More inputs than I could possibly action in my lifetime. I don’t recommend this, but it sure makes recommending good reading/listening easy!
