Quick question. My company uses Exact Target for handling email. I'd love to use LeadPages, but it does not integrate with Exact Target. Exact Target told me to use the tool featured in my link to make it work. I just want to see if someone can confirm to me that it would be relatively easy to get the email and first name and last name into Exact Target with some code? I have developer resources, but they are scarce. So if this is a major project, I may not be able to use this tool.

I had no idea we are seemingly so close to the end for newspapers. Sad.

Another reason to run ads on your brand
 
A recent study shows that search ads lifted brand awareness by an average of 6.6 percentage points, from 8.2% to 14.8%—an lift of 80%—presenting marketers with proof that there is opportunity to drive brand metrics by using search.

Thought this was woth thinking about in light of Barton Ehrman's new book.
One of the more challenging claims against the Christian faith is the historical claim that the earliest writings about Jesus don’t even claim that Jesus was God. After all, if the earliest biograp...

Story
Tagline
I help spread good ideas online through social media, seo and copywriting
Introduction
I'm the guy who married the best woman in the world (Marie Garmoe). I once worked at +PureDriven, and now work solo at patrickgarmoe.com, fulfilling my dream of helping spread the good ideas of small businesses.

I am a Web strategist (after 10 years in the journalism industry as a writer), which means that I spend my time assisting business owners figure out what of the myriad of options for marketing online fits them. When not doing that, I'm hanging out with my wife, two cats Gracie and Jewel, reading books (mainly non-fiction, about seo, analytics, copywriting, social networking, inbound marketing, and how to be a better follower of Christ) and watching Netflix. I'd like to say I'm an avid snowshoer in the winter, and hiker and geocacher in the summer, but I really only do those things when I'm extra ambitious.  Now it's your turn. Contact me here, or directly at pg@patrickgarmoe.com, or (218) 461-9655.

Its so popular that it's smart to double check your order because they sometimes are moving so fast that I've had to ask for something that I was supposed to get, but overall it's just as good an experience as any DD I've been to.

I've been going to Discount Tire for probably 10+ years. First in the Chicago suburbs, then in Duluth, MN for six years, and now in Omaha. Every single time I've had a great experience. If you just want the lowest price, I'm sure Sam's or some other place can probably do it slightly cheaper, but I feel like their prices are highly competitive. I think this company lives out its values of caring for the customer, because the staffs at all the locations I've been to have done an excellent job and really seemed to care that I was well treated. Mark even told me over the phone they'd fix a flat I had for free, though it wasn't one of their tires. He also got me coverage for four tires I wanted installed on my car for less than the price they normally charged just for the installation. And he didn't try to push me to purchase new tires when I brought in some used ones that had some life in them. Great experience!

I've probably been to a million fast food places. This was the first time I'd been to a Chick-fil-A in probably a decade. The food was good, but the service was unbelievably great. Someone actually came by to ask if I wanted a refill, and then held the door as I walked out. Shockingly outstanding service for a fast food place. You just don't see that any more. Oh, the chicken sandwiches I had were also really good, as was the fries.

Really like the Monday night $5 pepperoni special. Probably bought pizza from this place at least once a month for the last couple years. They do a great job. Always solid and fast.
