New Blogger Introduction
Well +Mandy Edwards is NOT a new blogger, but she is a new blogger to me because I've never read any of her articles before.  I found her over on +Mark Schaefer's blog and she wrote an awesome post that really resonated with me.

I just wanted to take some time to introduce Mandy to my circles and let you know to take some time to circle her and get to know some of the things she's doing over on her site.  

Get Them To Read!

It seems like everyone is always focused on getting more traffic to your blog, and rightly so, its an important part of the online process.  Take a look at some of the tips Mandy gives you to make this happen.

#bloggingtips  
The age old blogging question - how do I get people to my blog? Here are 5 easy ways to make that happen!

Employment
  • Broadsuite
    Chief Digital Officer & Partner, 2014 - present
    At Broadsuite I will be focusing on initiatives that connect paid, owned and earned digital channels through maximizing community involvement and content utilizing social and technology. What exactly does that mean? I’ll be teaching and leading change helping B2B’s, small businesses and technology companies connect, communicate and become active members of their communities both internal with employee advocacy and personal branding and externally utilizing community events such as weekly Google+ hangouts, Twitter Chats and video podcasts. I’ll be helping brands orchestrate content marketing tactics that situate their brands at the moments that matter to their audiences by focusing on creating content and social engagement that provides value while helping customers solve problems where often times earned and owned will trump paid. I’m excited to help brands embrace this change and I know change is scary and slow for many I believe by joining Broadsuite I will have the team and tools necessary to make this happen.
