To be successful in social media marketing you’ll need a great network.

It’s something you need to be constantly working on.

  • Top people in the profession from around the globe.

  • People you’ve worked with.

  • Friends, family, connections.

Each week we’ll suggest some great people to connect with. Look them up, send a connection or friend request or start following them. Build your network.

While you’re there, think through the other people who could be in your network. Send a couple of connection or friend requests or start following them.
