Greetings from the team at JDR! It's been a hectic couple of weeks in the aftermath of the Coronavirus outbreak, and we've had to make some rapid changes to the way we work. All of our team are working remotely, and we're anticipating even more changes in the coming weeks. You've probably had to do the same in your own business, so we're all in the same boat.

Another year, and another series of Love Island draws to a close. It’ll be back next year but it’s been a controversial one this time, and it seems to be all anyone can talk about! I bet there’s a lot of you reading this who watched every episode – following all the storylines, who’s coupling up, who’s being evicted… but were you also following up on the best marketing tools to help your business grow and expand? Instead of voting for Amber and Greg, we vote marketing automation!
