  1. Great tips. I been trying to learn how to grow by business and increase my contacts through Social Media . You have been a wealth of knowledge.

    However, the problem with a newbie like myself is where to start and how to manage all the social media sites and tools.

  2. Hey Mari….great video!

    I love the tip at the end about signing up to Aweber. I totally agree that having people opt-in to your newsletter is essential to any business because it allows you to have extended contact with your visitors via email broadcasts and pre-defined sequences. I had a question about the location of the Aweber opt-in box, which I asked via a video response to this video. I’m just curious if you received it.
