Or, maybe you haven’t heard — it hasn’t gotten all that much coverage, and when I Googled “new apple cookie,” the first result was for Pillsbury Salted Caramel Apple Cookies.
So now, I’m hungry. But setting snacks aside for a moment, let’s think through what this means for Pardot users. Continue reading What Does Apple’s New Cookie Change Up Mean for Pardot Users?
