Friday's Marketing Round up (7/10)

Here are my favs for the week:

The PR Times are Changin'- Old times are gone. Let’s increase the odds and prove how effective online marketing can be if used correctly (with correctly being the key buzz word here).

It's my PR story and I'm stickin' to it! - a new column that examines all things PR. Yep, public relations -- also known as image management, spin, publicity, and hype.

Get your Facebook game face on -
With over 200 million active users (this impressive number represents those who have logged into Facebook in the past 30 days not just anyone who has signed up), writers can access experts and publishers to land gigs, find opportunities and obtain memorable quotes.

Social Media - Social media strategy coaching for authors and publishers

When is it OK to follow agent or editor
- Is it kosher to send a friend request to an agent on Facebook? Is it accepted to follow an editor on Twitter?

Protocal for Facebook and following industry professionals (older article but relates to the last one) Let's say you're interested in submitting to a few specific agents. Would you look them up on Facebook to learn more about them as a person? Many of you probably already have. What about MySpace? Twitter? LinkedIn?

Social networking anyone? Rachel Gardner is taking on poll on how effective social networking is for writers, how it fits
into the writing life, and what the perceived value is.The responses should be interesting.
