Digital Marketing Blog
Optify's digital marketing blog covers hot topics in marketing automation, lead generation, SEO, social media marketing and more.

Earlier this year, the Optify Product Development team embarked on a process of evaluating a new web development stack. For an engineering team, selecting a technology stack for a new project, or migrating an existing project from one technology stack to another, is a daunting process.

Itâ€™s no coincidence that applying sales lingo to our dating lives comes naturally. Every time a rep picks up the phone, he or she has to be in the mindset that â€śthis could be the oneâ€ť.

And while itâ€™s never fun to have the â€śI donâ€™t think this is going to work outâ€ť conversation, if itâ€™s not going to work out, donâ€™t schedule the second call.
