Its been a busy week back in Holland after last week’s Swiss trip. (Peek these recaps by John
) And I’m still playing catch up as today is Amsterdam’s biggest Tech Conference: The Next Web
As I scramble to ship this (late, I know) issue, wrap up my inbox & head to the conference, I’m using my regular quiver of tools to set reminders of emails to followup with, schedule social media posts & my colleagues are using automation software to ship pitches & outreach emails for clients. Increasingly, automation, AI & bots 🤖 help our small team make an ever bigger impact.
With meetings this morning + this afternoon I’ll only be at The Next Web for a few hours today & hopefully more tomorrow. Like I do with many shows, I use tools like Twitfox
to autofave tweets & Statusbrew
to invite new followers to subscribe to this newsletter. Often when I hand someone a Twotone Amsterdam sticker, they recognize the logo from social media & maybe already subscribe. But do I have to be there to have that face-to-face exchange.
As always, thank you for reading!
