Will the verification fever hit partnerships? ☑️

Our new podcast series, a luxurious partnership, Chicago meetup and our classic memes and great content.

Howdy Partners! 

Mark Zuckerberg joined the “Verification-Palooza” this week when he announced the launch of Facebook and Instagram’s paid verification subscriptions. If this trend picks up, we might start seeing blue ticks everywhere, like on Pinterest. That way you can verify that you are the one that has been creating all those boards with DIY projects that you’ll never end up doing.


There’s a new baby podcast in our family! Unlearn, hosted by our CEO, Asher Mathew, and Kelly Sarabyn, from Hubspot, is a GTM podcast that features industry leaders talking about unlearning current playbooks and adopting new growth strategies. Watch the first episodes here.

Partnership of the Week

Cars all over the world vroomed in excitement when Mercedez-Benz announced a partnership with Google. This relationship will take the luxury car experience beyond leather seats and sunroofs, adding new in-car data and navigation capabilities from Google Maps. That’s what I call search engine optimization!
