    • 2. Social media marketing engages a specific online audience through
      conversation, creativity and community. This community functions
      as an independent marketing tool and becomes a fundamental part
      of a brand’s overall marketing strategy.
      “It’s about brands having conversations.”
      – Lloyd Salmons, Chairman, Internet Advertising Bureau

    • 20. What Erica says about
      “LinkedIn is a great place to expand your professional network far outside your own areas of interest and experience.
      Your LinkedIn Profile is your resume. What do you want people to know about you right away? You have three lines to make an impress, make it good.
      LinkedIn Answers are a great exercise in dealing with the absurd. From ignorance to agenda, they give you a chance to be seen, heard and sometimes even understood.
      Connect with relevance. You liked an answer or reply, that's relevant. A person has a lot of contacts in your field - sleazy but relevant. Like all social media, LinkedIn is a cocktail 
      party, and you aren't sure who might walk through the door - could be just the person you
      were waiting for!”
