Social Media Marketing Resources:
The more I am immersed in social media marketing, the more critical I consider guidelines. Interestingly, companies have plenty of opportunity to do better as I discovered researching Facebook Fan Page Guidelines or House Rules and LinkedIn Group Guidelines or Rules of Engagement. What are your reactions to guidelines and house rules?
My March 2011 MarketingProfs article became a Get to the Point short article in 10 Reasons You Shouldn't Ignore Social Media.
I'd love to hear your take on How Are You Finding New Customers?
