Getting Schooled on Social Media

So after I just crowed about getting 600 leads through our latest lead gen program, Jeremiah Owyang, who writes on social marketing out there, says “dude, that’s so 1.0”. And he’s right.

So, we’ve set up a group on Facebook, where we’re making the whitepaper available as an unregistered download. All we’re asking in return is for opinions. What do you like? What sucks? What would you like to see us cover in a future marketing brief?
