Marketing Tips & Trends

Facebook vs. LinkedIn for B2B Marketing
Amanda MacArthur,

I subscribe to the Mequoda Daily, an online publishers newsletter. Recently I read the following article, "Increasing website traffic by wasting less time on social networks that aren't right for your business model". I found it to be a good reflection of my own observations and intuition and so I'd like to share it with my fellow Waveguide readers. I could have tweeted it but according to this article, social media use among professionals still has a way to go. And since the number of my followers is much less than our Waveguide distribution list, I'll pass along this article the "old school" way. Happy reading. - David Vye

Upcoming Editorial & Webinars

Granted, our content for January, February and March was largely determined back in 2010, but the momentum of a resurging economy seems to be carrying well into this year as I look ahead.
