Content = good.
Marketing = Better.
Sales = BEST!

So we wrapped Content Marketing + Sales into one seamless package, called paGO Commerce for Joomla! Check it out:   www.pagocommerce.com 
NEW from corePHP, paGO Commerce is the best new e-commerce suite for Joomla!

Check out my new article on The CMS Connection, if ya like... Longtime open source advocate David Hurley' is ON THE MOVE. I admire his strategy for David's brand-new Marketing Automation start-up, called MAUTIC. Unique double-helix twist that should capture some wind for the start-up's sails, while pestering the big boys in the Automated Marketing sector just a bit:

1) Mautic is open source
2) Mautic is a non-profit 

Check out our Q & A with David about Mautic here:

David Hurley is on the move, with a unique spin on Marketing Automation: It\'s a non-profit! Check out Mautic.
