It’s been awhile since I’ve given a favorite posts of the week, so here ya’ go.
Caroline Melberg from Small Business Mavericks writes on Social Media Success in 5 Easy Steps. There are some great tips and my favorite is point #1: Pick one social media network.

Ed Kohler and myself share a similar opinion regarding printed Yellow Pages. It winds up their usage dropped 10% this last year. I’m fine with those who find the print usage useful, but am not a fan of them carpet dropping spam. Check out the Phone Book Chuck-it challenge, and Ed’s video of returning a Verizon book to the source.
