Swiftpage Reader’s Digest: What We’ve Been Reading

Our Swifties always have their nose in a book, magazine, or blog, staying in the loop with the latest in email marketing, small business news, and general marketing advice. Occasionally we also take some time off to read something just for fun. Check out what we read in March:
