The reality is, the tools aren’t going to stop coming. Right now there are some dominant players in social media (facebook, twitter, youtube, etc.) and the temptation is to run around making sure you’re everywhere at all times. The reality is, you should only be on what helps your overall marketing strategy. [Read more...]
