Hosk’s Top CRM 2013 articles of the week 4th July 2014

It’s a new month, number 7 already!  I just got really confused because the title of the post had 2013 in it but it’ clearly 2014 but then I remember it’s the CRM product is called CRM 2013.  I think I can almost use the line below

This weeks lots of CRM MVP’s got reknighted, well done boys and girls and keep up the great work.

I got my first CRM Microsoft Community Contributor badge and scrapped into the leaderboard for badges, scroll down I’m number 8

I had the feeling I had tweeted many articles this week but now I look at the list and there seems to be quite a few
