Learning the difference between authenticity and transparency is key to building relationships and earning trust via social media marketing.
Smart brands are tapping into the human power of their employees to increase brand awareness and market reach, create and curate content, engage with target audiences, listen to conversations and even help recruit top talent!
Becoming a social business is a journey, not a destination. Integrating social media, new technologies and methodologies is as much about mindset as it is about the tools and technology.

The only problem is that none of this happened. Bottom line, your blog sucks and you don’t know what to do about it.
Email marketing is not dead! For success with email marketing, the focus must be on sharing value and serving your audience versus manipulating them to click, share and opt-in!
