If you're looking to increase the effectiveness of your ads on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and reduce your CAC, consider using cinemagraphs instead of still photos. A new A/B test from Microsoft Canada tells the story.

Hi all, we're recording a very special edition podcast on startups and mental health tomorrow as part of CMHA Mental Health Week next week. We have one spot still left open and are looking for a founder willing to speak about the internal struggle that can accompany and burden building a business, as well as the needs of all founders to look after the mental needs of their employees.

This is a topic close to my heart (and head). Hit me with a message if you can be downtown Toronto tomorrow afternoon as part of a dope pod crew.

Douglas SoltysHi everyone, totally overwhelmed by the number of public and private messages being sent my way with offers to participate and share personal stories. This is great. I think we're good for tomorrow's podcast recording, but I'm going to reach out to everyone individually to see if there's more that we can do. This isn't just a one-off for us.
