Next week marks the beginning of a new year…can you believe it? I have read a lot of articles (or at least parts of them) the past couple of weeks about the past years’ trends and the upcoming years’ predictions. The one “trend” which stands out to me is that quality content continues to be “king.” I want you to know I appreciate each and every one of you who reads my blog posts, whether here or the other sites to which I contribute. My New Year’s resolution is to keep doing my best to deliver helpful, useful, and (hopefully) entertaining content over the next year and beyond.
These are the top five tweets from the j+ Twitter handle, @jplussocial, from this past week. Each of these tweets were articles from authors who always share excellent information about a variety of social media and marketing topics. I hope you enjoy them, too.
Are you ready? Let’s go!
The author of this article, Terry Sullivan, is truly a LinkedIn pro! Terry and I connected on LinkedIn through a local DFW group, so I was honored to be able to meet him in person at an offline networking event and then for coffee meetings earlier this year. He shares great advice in this article for others who want to take their LinkedIn networking into the offline world.
