  • 3. Sometimes I walk away from business. I help Marketing managers achieve business goals through wise use of social media. I don't deliver followers,fans,connections, +1 or circles - I help companies get better qualified leads,shorten sale cycles, improve conversion and basically generate revenues.

Israel Oct 2010 â–º As a heavy user of community-based websites,I have created webinars,videos,online groups,online CVs and portfolios,wikis,and tutorials.
