38% of marketing consultants now spend 81-100% of their marketing efforts on digital - impressive or surprisingly low?

Ever wondered how to promote your business in Russia, China or... Spain? Heres a run-down of how social media can help.
Social media is a great way to reach an international audience, but what social networks should you use? Facebook or Sina Weibo? Twitter or VKontakte?

As a Marketing Consultant or Agency should you offer services based on your skills, profit margin, current trends or simply what your customers want? I'll be interviewing two agency owners and someone who advises consultants on 'service layering'.

Fascinating! Join me next Weds (13th) online...
Should you be a specialist or a generalist? Web design, email, SEO, advertising, content marketing, social media: they're all standalone services that can fall under the 'digital marketing' umbrella, but each of them requires a significant level of expertise.

Not very good treatment - then out of the blue they said I'd missed appointments and would need to change dentist. No reminders, no courtesy call - just a quick way of shedding NHS patients. I'm more than happy to move - but still, it leaves a bad taste.
