Today I published a bunch of digital marketing ideas for small businesses, because we all need inspiration sometimes.

Do you love an underdog story? I sure do. I love hearing about the little guy who went head-to-head with BigBadCorp and won. SMBs get to do that.

How To Grow An Internal Startup Marketing Team

This is an interview with John Doherty, the Senior Marketing Manager at HotPads (which is owned by Zillow).

I've been going to this place about once a week for the last year and a half. It is AMAZING. The best and quickest Mexican I have found in the city by far. It is always packed, which tells you how good it is!

I finally went to this place recently, after hearing friends rave about it for months. It did not disappoint. We started with oysters, 3 different kinds, which were all done to perfection. Then I had a large steak (38oz split between 2 people), which is quite possibly the best steak I have ever had. I combined it with their french fries, which are delicious though not anything unique. We topped off the meal with their chocolate mousse, which if you like chocolate mousse you MUST have it. We drank beers the whole time, mostly local brews. They have their own special Brooklyn Brewery ale, which was amazing and is recommended. I'll be back.

This is a great spot to go with some friends. It's a pretty communal dining experience, but the homemade pasta is amazing. We had a bottle of wine, a couple of appetizers, an entree each, and dessert. The chocolate cake with sea salt and olive oil was amazing. Highly recommended spot. Make sure you get there earlier than you want to be sat to put your name in. There's usually a 20-30 minute wait.

Love this place. I've seen both Jason and Shane and would highly recommend both. Shane hooked me up with a fresh cut when I decided to cut off my long hair. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone, but I almost don't want to because then it'll be harder to get in for an appointment!

This place is awesome. I've been here 2-3 times for brunch and once for dinner. I always get the Eggs Benedict, which is pretty awesome. I got the burger for dinner one night, and it was delicious. If you go to brunch and love coffee, get a cup. It's fair trade organic and is delicious. Servers are always super nice (especially Hayden) and the decor is typically awesome Brooklyn - booths and brick walls, and there's a bar. Highly recommended.
