Your Free Digital Health Report with Katherine Haine

Hang on this is interesting! I met Katherine Haine at the New York Press Association Annual Meeting last week in Albany. She was a vendor for her company City Media attempting to get newspaper editors interested in finding out more about the health of their digital footprint and if something is wrong or weak ways to fix it.
