I agree. I'll test it out, but not sure if I'll 100% move. Using Apple mail with a Google mail custom domain is working fine at the moment.

We shall see...

I had two critiques on the HEY app but one was recently fixed. First, I'm glad they just added the "quick action menu" on all pages of the app. That makes things way more smooth to navigate.

I did use Rebrandly for an SMS marketing campaign for a client earlier last year and thought they were great for what they offered. The only downside for me was that they are based in Ireland (if I…

I use Campfire more as a quick chat/casual updates back and forth per-project, then use the "Message Board" with custom message types as ways to make threads about particular topics regarding that…

I've toyed around with this with not perfect solution. Not to be a massive Basecamp advocate, but for work, organization, and thread finding, this is perfect for what I do.

I only use Slack now for…

Thanks! I had a feeling this was going to be the answer. I was also looking at Revue and Podia, but Substack definitely seems like the easiest choice. I appreciate your help!

I'm definitely going to do more digging into this. Currently, when I build sites with dynamic content, it's a combo of elementor and advanced custom fields.

File -> Export as PDF. Then, upload that PDF to photoshop and do whatever it is you're trying to accomplish.

This has been my nightmare lately. I'm currently working with an old-school management team company adopt to modern-day technology. When I first started with them and did my audit, I asked for a…

It really depends on the software I'm using. I prefer dark mode 90% of the time, but yesterday I opened up Apple Numbers with their new "black theme" and just couldn't handle it.

I’m always blown away with the “script + procedures” efforts in digital marketing and sales these days. Just because there is a script, doesn't mean you can't customize to your current efforts…
