Ever ponder this question?

Are you happy?  How much do you earn?  Is $$$ the missing link to happiness?
As you rise up the corporate ladder you get more money but also more stress and more complications that can make you less happy on the job, right? No, maybe not, according to a new survey by the jobs site CareerBliss.com. It finds that employees with higher salaries are happier with all aspect of their work life, not just their compensation.

Some interesting data from #marketo that illustrates the type of emails that work best...
Marketo Institute was started in 2014 by Marketo Co-founder Jon Miller. His vision was to gather data across all Marketo customers and provide marketers with fact-based insights and data-driven best practices to help them succeed in an ever-changing digital world. I am excited to begin delivering to you, my fellow marketers, insights gained from this valuable data. First up: email performance! Is batch, nurture, or trigger the best way to go?
