Google Hangouts' oops is my gain because I get to be on the +Manly Pinterest Tips show twice! Join me tomorrow at 3:30 EST :)
Second Chance Special!

Due to so many people having issues with viewing the show and Google only saving the last 5 minutes of the video,  we are trying again!

+Azure Collier from +Constant Contact has agreed to come on the show and give it another try.  

She dropped so much good information that I didn't want any of you to miss it!

Join us each week for The Manly Pinterest Tips Show and Podcast

Our mission, (and we choose to accept it) is to give practical tips to help you succeed on +Pinterest 

This week we'll be talking all about How Constant Contact Uses Pinterest with +Azure Collier 

Azure Collier is a content manager for +Constant Contact in Waltham, MA, where she oversees the company’s Pinterest and Instagram channels, creates educational content, presents webinars, and writes for the Constant Contact blog about social media and email marketing best practices for small businesses and nonprofits. Prior to joining Constant Contact, Azure worked in higher education at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Fitchburg State University in the areas of social media marketing, multimedia content creation, website management, and public relations. She was also a journalist in the Midwest at the Times of Northwest Indiana in Valparaiso, IN, and the Journal and Courier in Lafayette, IN. She received a BA in communications and journalism from Purdue University, and a MS in applied communication from Fitchburg State University, where she completed thesis research on social media and young adults.
