Today’s guest post comes from ChangeThis. Oddly enough, you’ll recognize a familiar theme 4 or 5 pages in (its a short 10 page document): “Business is Personal” 🙂

Check it out while I’m out in the sticks camping in the snow with the troop: Julien Smith and Chris Brogan‘s Trust Economies: Investigation into the New ROI of the Web

Twitter just doesnt make sense for business

Or maybe it does.

See what Chris’ argument in today’s guest post, which is chock full of reasons why Twitter just might make sense for your business.

Insomnia and the Social Media Roadmap

Alternate

The other night, Chris Brogan twittered that he couldn’t sleep. Not too much later, he tweeted again to say that he ended up writing a blog post.

IMO, he needs to sleep less if this is the kind of stuff he creates when insomnia strikes.

Today’s guest post from Chris is a great getting started roadmap for businesses looking to stick their toe into the social media pond.

Free is good. So is not so free. Know the difference.

Today I’m down in Hamilton Montana at the Bitterroot Rendezvous with 300 other folks, including a bunch of Scouts. 

Because I’d hate to have you go all weekend empty handed, and more importantly because I get questions at least once a week about the logic of giving away so much information and advice (like this blog) for free, I thought I’d slide the mike over to social media wizard Chris Brogan and let him share his thoughts on the topic. 

Hop on over to Chris’ blog and get a handle on how the picnic gets paid for.
