Wednesday Weekly What’s Going Down Online Marketing Links

A Roundup of Interesting Online Marketing Links

Welcome to the very first round-up post of interesting online marketing links and what not I’ve found in the past week. This roundup gives me the opportunity to add a little more commentary than social media allows without committing to full-blown blog posts.

I’ve been meaning to start doing this for a while, and now I’m finally doing it! Hooray!

9 Google Chrome Extensions for Bloggers and Social Media Marketers

An interesting list. I have an entirely different set of Chrome Extensions. I have Personal Blocklist, Evernote Clipper, Clearly, Buffer, Pocket, Last Pass, Pin It, 1Password, Flip It, Dashlane, Insight Hero, Grammarly, and Ghostery. Whew. That’s a lot when you type it all out. Three different password managers seem excessive, but different clients use different ones. Buffer, Evernote, Grammarly, and Ghostery are my most used. What are yours?
