Shot 1: Inbound Thought of the Week

Plant based KFC

KFC is about to offer Beyond Meat chicken:

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/08/26/kfc-will-test-beyond-meat-plant-based-chicken.html?utm_source=morning_brew

I learnt a new word:  flexitarian : a person who consumes mainly vegetarian food but occasionally eats meat or fish

https://www.macmillandictionary.com/us/buzzword/entries/flexitarian.html

Btw Seeing the word ‘fried’ coming back - turns out that wasn’t the reason they rebranded to KFC in the 90s:

Shot 7: App Integration of the Week

NeverBounce

Ran into some issues with email delivery this week and had to use NeverBounce.  Here are some of the results as we connected it to HubSpot to do the validation and then pushed the data back.

But how do you check it? They will attempt to create a HubSpot property named “neverbouncevalidationresult” to store the NeverBounce validation result (valid, invalid, disposable, catchall, and unknown).
