Special Sales Tip of the Day: January 28, 2023

Take a five-minute break from your marketing activities today and play this word game. What do these seven words all have in common? 1. Banana 2. Dresser 3. Grammar 4. Potato 5. Revive 6. Uneven and 7. Assess. The easy answer is that they all have at least 2 double letters. But in all these words, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word.
