One of the many seminars I attended was “How to Seduce Your Tribe and Create Raving Fans” presented by Deborah Micek (http://www.tribalseduction.com/) – she was a ball of fire and passion!

How Twitter Can Help Online Marketing and Tips

June 25th, 2008

Online Marketing with TwitterTwitter has been around and popular in the U.S. for more than a year with millions of users. The iPhone is coming to Canada in a few weeks and I am sure Twitter will become more mainstream and adopted in Canada. Why?
