I'm sure but I couldn't find it. Bad UI if I can't find it and I looked. No public timeframe... Nice.

Who do you guys think is the best all around provider? Let me give you a target market though. None of the clients I work with want to spend on HubSpot types as it's 'too much' money so must typically cost less than $100. Yup I know prices rise, but I'm referring to 'getting started' pricing. Must be easy to use e.g. MailChimp and GetResponse types. Relatively well thought out Autoresponders/drip features.

Currently I'm reviewing GetResponse, Aweber and ActiveCampaign. They all seem really different and 'free' isn't important so MailChimp with it's online only support is a non-starter for these guys.

Thoughts?

PowerMTA is a port25 solution and its a very specialized email delivery solution. Its whats used to actually send out emails. And if you're a high-volume mailer, investing is such a solution might your best option. This way, you can build the UI to do anything you'd like.

Do you wink in real life when you wink in text ';)'? I do and I think it's kind of funny. Do you ever do that?

Customize Your Email Channel Groups in +Google Analytics 

One of the key factors to using #Multi-Channel Funnels is customizing your channel groupings. The reason is that we all use channels for both acquisition and retention activities.

This is especially true with email marketing.

In order to customize your Email channel group to reflect this you must have some type of information in your campaign tags that reflects the intent of the email. This could be the name of the campaign (utm_campign) or a customization to the source (utm_source).

I like customizing the source, it let's me include both customer and prospects in the overal campaign (utm_campaign)

Once you have your links tagged the right way you can modify your default channel groups to match your criteria.

The result: you'll notice that the metrics will more accurately  resemble the audience that receive your messages. And you'll be able to tell if your email marketing is working as expected.

For majority website owners/internet marketers that would be Overkill. Use links in the emails (as we offer link/click tracking) to start the segmenting. There are thousands of other ways to do it a Hell of a lot easier than to try to watch and filter web-site traffic like this. Fundamentals trump the potential of this  - unless you are a major brand or site that has far greater prominence than the average user.
My opinion? Even though I really dig Google Analytics reporting and what I can gain from their use. Most users can gain more Segmenting from click reports which provides most users a least expensive, most effective and fastest path to making revenue online.  #emailmarketing

I find so often on here guys are calling hits dirty that really aren't dirty, because they don't know the game and in this case there really is no other call. Additionally the fact that he was called for an in-person immediately means the league sees it as not only a fact, but an intended action by the player to injure. Looking back at the actual event from the front-right side (the view of the referee making the call) you can see how Cooke lead with his knee. In the last a couple years of hearing about kneeing I've never seen a more deliberate act of kneeing. This is a classic "Ulf Samuelsson vs Cam Neely" quality knee on knee. You can't actually do anything other than knee a guy in this position. Did you see how he is sitting back on his skates? His balance is deliberate in order raise his knee and drive his lower leg (the stronger area) against his opponents weaker (actual knee) area. This isn't a missed check like it looks from behind, which is why the referee who made the call was across from the the play and could clearly see him doing this. I am not a fan of Cooke but generally speaking the guy just is old school in his attitude towards hockey which is why over the last few years he's improved his conduct. He was literally being taught his version of the game isn't the way people play hockey any more. In this moment we see a side of Cooke that is rare. He wasn't just old school or aggresive, he was vicious and totally with malicious intent as this clearly took moments (long-moments) to position and take action as appropriate. For this I think Cooke should see a suspension from the NHL in the area of 25 games. He is no longer a 'serial' offender as defined by the collective agreement, but that doesn't remove the reality of his intent or the impact of it. I truly hope the league sends a message by giving him 25 games. Could cause him to retire at this point in his career as no one would want to risk a signing at this point. We shall see tomorrow and learn the extent of this suspension.

Gotta say, early do I disagree with Don Cherry. He has it totally wrong. I see Prust taking at least two shots to the face, but his stick was more like a crosscheck than a spear. Lastly that cross check looks defensive, because of all the shots in the head he was taking. Seems to me he could have shown less respect and just beat the help out of Ben Bishop.

Just some of the doodles that go into making a logo. This was on an iPad in a pub. Thanks +Derek Mah for your feedback! Amazing designer and pure creative.

I love the new Google+. I think this space is awesome now. I definitely prefer it to Facebook in many ways with this new version. What has been your experience? Are you spending more time on here too?

Been there a few times now, since back in the day when the original owner ran the place. I've had people ask me if I'm going to buy something, because the place was empty and I sat down first and opened my laptop. Staff recently responded rudely to a pretty basic question, like 'Why do you only accept cash'. Probably they get that quite often, but still a reasonable question since I live in the 21st century and there are not. There is a guy there with a beard though, pretty artsy type guy. He is awesome and if I knew when he would be there, I'd go again, but since I don't know and have found every other visit to be met with rude or abrasive staff I'm not going to return to my old university watering-hole. Too bad for them and me.

Considering Waves "was" known for it's spacious cafes with lots of power points for electronics this case was a huge disappointment. Only two plugs in the whole place. I'll never return for that and the terrible furnishings.
