So You’re A #MKTGnerd: Top List of Marketing Nerds

Marketing nerds unite!

Gone are the days when being a nerd is looked down upon. We don’t have to fear getting our shoes tied together, wedgies from the class bully or sitting alone at lunch. Instead, we can stand proud and loudly self-proclaim to be the marketing nerds that we are! Maybe you check Twitter and Google Analytics before breakfast (ahem) or maybe you optimize all of your emails, even ones written to friends. Or maybe you count lead scores instead of counting sheep when trying to fall asleep. Whatever your quirk is, stand from the rooftop and shout it out to the Twittersphere because the team at Lattice is ready to celebrate the geek chic movement. We want to hear why you are a #MKTGnerdJoin our conversation on Twitter and Instagram and let your nerd flag fly. In two weeks, we’ll select the best entries to win our essential marketing nerd survival kit.
