Welcome to the Dove Direct Print and Marketing Blog. Today's post, "Dove Direct's Top 7 Articles of 2021," offers a brief review of our most-read blogs from 1Q and 2Q 2021. As we head into summer with just one month before the end of 2Q, we find the nation eager to return to a sense of normalcy. Before we start, we'd like to honor our fallen soldiers and thank all veterans and active military for their service in helping to protect our country. To all who served, we salute you, and we thank you. Now that we are entering the early days of summer, it's important to take this time to prepare marketing strategies and tactics for the second half of the year. The year appears to be speeding, making marketing prep time-critical for launching successful 3rd and 4th Qs campaigns.

That said, the first half of the year should shed some light on what's to come and provide insight into where marketers are heading.
