Do you hear me now?

Listening is the most overlooked tool in your marketing toolkit.

It is one of the first things I recommend in my classes. Thanks @null

Here's a tip!
The most important role of social media for brands is to #Listen  to when people are talking about their brand. Not only this - It offers an overwhelming advantage of being able to participate in these conversations as well! 

Don't just Hear - Listen!

I lead many of the Academy's webinars and look forward to the more personalized, interactive options Google+ hangouts will give us.

If there are any topics you's like to see addressed in Academy classes, Be sure to put them in the Discussion category!

Hi Everyone! Happy to join the MCA Academy!

As far as education, I recently started teaching illustration webinars. Here's the replay of one I did in October for Topaz Labs. I was thrilled that over 700 people attended from all over the world! So, I'm starting to teach my own webinars in January. Would love to know if folks are interested in learning more about illustrating. Thanks!
