Props to +Fandango for actually using data to personalize its messaging.

And go see the movie The Grand Budapest Hotel - it was amazing.

Oh, and thanks to my co-worker Maggie Jones for creating this custom image. Ha.

Check it.
Finding the right marketing automation software is tough when you are searching for the first time. That’s why we teamed up with Software Advice to speak to hundreds of companies, determining what drives organizations to purchase these systems. Check out our new infographic for some key stats found in Software Advice’s survey.

Story
Tagline
Founder/CEO of Waldow Social. Email & Social Media Marketing. Community Building. Alum of U of M. Knowledge craver. Sponge. Lover of beer, coffee, & people.
Introduction

Hi there! I'm DJ Waldow - an email marketing consultant, writer, blogger, speaker, and (now) author. I'm also the founder and CEO of Waldow Social, a company that helps clients take email marketing to the next level. I've spent nearly 8 years in the email, social, and community-building world, advising clients on how to optimize their email marketing campaigns and--on occasion--break some of the “best practice” rules.

I'm an alumnus of the University of Michigan (Go Blue), a knowledge craver, a sponge, and a lover of beer, coffee, & people (in no particular order).

I can be found on most social networks under the handle “djwaldow” or by searching “DJ Waldow.

Bragging rights
I have the best wife (K-Dawg) & the cutest children (Eva and Cal) in the world. So there.

Found this place (and Mike) via Yelp, of course. Thought I had fried my MacBook Air recently (coffee spill!). The Apple Store told me it was going to be $750 to open up my machine and see what the damage was. Mike diagnosed the issue - FOR FREE - then determined all it needed was a new keyboard. He installed the keyboard and had it back to me in a matter of days. $185. Hard to beat, right? HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mike and SJ Mac Repair.
