Today is all about Social Media Gurus and how and why they are relevant to me. To be honest I’ve been very interested in social marketing and pr and really wanted to learn more about it. Unfortunately working two jobs and taking care of two kids gives me little time for professional development.
However I am slowly trying to squeeze things in when I can.
This week’s assignment
To subscribe to a few social media marketing industry blogs, which I did just that. To my surprise I’ve actually heard of a couple of them. I even started following a couple of them on my twitter.
I also plan on picking up a couple of the books, The Whuffie Factor sounds really interesting and would have been my first buy, but it’s not out. Tara if you happy to stumble across my blog I would love to read and would be happy to write a review for a copy!
A couple of others that I sound interesting are Join the Conversation: How to Engage Marketing-Weary Consumers with the Power of Community, Dialogue, and Partnership and The Art of the Start: The Time-Tested, Battle-Hardened Guide for Anyone Starting Anything.
Any participants of 15 days interested in a book exchange: buy one, read one and swap, let me know!
