The Art of Active Listening It's a pretty basic social skill for most, but for some reason, active listening hasn't really translated to our social media skillset. So Sprout Social hosts a webinar tomorrow at 1 pm CST to flip social on its head and discuss how being an active listener will help your strategy, plus how to know and grow your audience through feedback.
"As humans, we learn this in kindergarten, but as brands, we’re still trying to figure out how."
Kellogg's Book Reccs While we love the endless marketing resources flooding the internet (available with a quick click) there's nothing like sitting down, being totally present, and cracking open a fresh industry book.

Moz Predicts SEOMoz leverages a boatload of data, and maybe a little magic, to predict the SEO trends for 2019. Some of the suggestions don't surprise us (Mobile is important? Think I've heard that somewhere.) but others make us think. We know SEO's the star of the show, so take a look to see where you agree, or where you quibble.
Domain Authority 2.0It's a double feature for Moz, because in addition to those SEO predictions, they're announcing a revamped version of their Domain Authority feature. The new Domain Authority will bring with it more accurate predictions of search performance with their advance machine learned model to gauge the strength of a site better than ever before. Dropping tomorrow, but you can read up on the changes being made on the Moz blog right now.
"We recognize that stability plays an important role in making Domain Authority valuable to our customers, so we wanted to make sure that the new Domain Authority brought meaningful changes to the table."
