3. Courier x MailChimp
As some in the marketing world know, Mailchimp is one of the top rated business tools on the interweb. Just when we thought we couldn’t love Mailchimp more, this time last year, they acquired Courier Media. Courier is a London-based media company that produces bi-monthly print magazines and newspapers. Their pages are filled with rich content for the modern generation. We flip back and forth between Mailchimp and Courier to stay up to date on all evolving trends. Their combined talents make them an integrated marketing empire; and we couldn't geek over it more if we tried! Let’s just say print and digital are in a healthy relationship! You can find all Courier content in three different forms: Audio, Email and Print.
