What We Learned

Monday: Convince and Convert explained how to communicate with your customers during the COVID-19 crisis. The key points were:

  • Be open with your communication in the most direct way possible.
  • Don’t pretend everything is normal.
  • Don’t market the same as before.
  • Be cautious when using humor.

Tuesday: CoSchedule gave some pointers on how to write customer success stories that sell. They recommend using stories from customers that have 1) been with you for a while, 2) spend more money than most, and 3) already refer others to you. There’s a list of 20 questions included in this piece for you to capture key components of the story you’re looking to tell.

Wednesday: Content Marketing Institute talked about content curation on social. Be sure to give context to your curation, and if you’re looking for places to find content worth talking about, then they’ve got you covered.

Thursday: Ahrefs went through a simple and effective 31-point SEO checklist. Some of the points outline best practices to get you started, optimizing on-page content, and the most crucial piece: keyword research.

Rosemarycano Cocktail


  • 1/2 untreated lemon
  • 1-2 sprigs rosemary
  • 4 cl Campari
  • 4 cl Antica Formula (or another red vermouth of your choice)
  • about 10 cl Tonic Water (preferably Fever-Tree)


  • Cut the lemon in quarters and squeeze them directly into the glass, making sure that the essential oils from the zest hit the glass.
  • Rub and twist the rosemary between your hands to release the aromatics and add to the glass along with ice cubes.
  • Add Campari and Antica Formula and fill with Tonic Water. Stir vertically once with a long spoon. A rosemary sprig and a lemon twist go well as a garnish.
