In Data Quality Management

Happy Friday, everyone! Let’s check out some of the best B2B marketing tips from around the blogosphere this week:

1. Kicking Out Unwanted Customers, Alamo Drafthouse Style

Alamo Drafthouse is basically the only place I’ll see a movie. For those that don’t live in Austin or haven’t heard of it, it’s a wonderful theater chain that serves food and beverages and screens movies in a much more comfortable environment than most other theaters. They are also unapologetic about their firm stance on talking and texting during movies, as one of their patrons learned recently. While this is a funny video, it’s also a great reminder not to compromise your principles for a customer.
