    “The last thing an expert will ever call themselves is an “expert.” Rather, they will tell you that they learn something related to their line of work every day, particularly when providing a service or applying knowledge they have gained throughout their career.

    The key to gaining recognition as an expert is not just knowing the right answer, but also knowing how to utilize the resources available to obtain the right answer. An expert can always be relied upon to use sound judgment and persevere in the face of mounting challenges.”

    Read this article from Gina Sprenkle.

    “The question “Is Twitter a Social Network or a Marketing Network?” has become a mute point…

    It’s both!

    The real questions are:

    “How can a Marketer effectively use Twitter to generate income?”… and

    “How can a New Marketer use Twitter to promote their business?”…

    Well, the answers may be simpler than you think… Twitter is a combination or melding, of sorts, of several marketing and communication media, namely:

    * blogs – A sort of Idea-Response Venue
    * forums – A monitored and restricted topic conversation with multiple participants
    * instant messaging – One on one conversation
    * and advertising – Pure promotion

    …but Twitter offers the best features of all of these, unrestricted and under your control.
