It’s always interesting to us here at FullContact how people grow and maintain relationships. Relationships are at the core of everything that we do. This week, we’re talking with Andrew Warner of Mixergy. He describes what it’s like building a business based around communication, and the things that he wishes that he had available to him.
I’m closely watching 2369 APIs, 1795 companies, 924 of which have blogs, and 1218 of them have a Twitter account and 755 with Github accounts.

There’s a great piece this week from the folks over at Intercom that talks about the timeline that you have for turning a lead into a paying customer.
