  13. 13. There are a million people online who promise to help you with buzz, hype and promotion. Currently, all it takes to be considered a ‘social media expert,’ is to own a Twitter account. But they are operating at a different level. Their work and real expertise were critical to the successful launch of my latest book ‘Do Over.’ I highly recommend them! In the last three years since working with them we went from a brand new blog to one of the top 30 Leadership blogs in the world (according to Alexa). We launched 2 bestselling books, a top ranked podcast, and our impressions climbed from a few thousand to a few million every month. The team has been a key part of our growth and their consistency and partnership along the way has been tantamount. WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US “ “
