Let’s be adult about this, how quick do you give it up…you know, your goodies? Are you the type to give it up right away, or are you a bit of a tease and make them wait? When the time comes, do you tend to hesitate wondering what they might think if you give it away too soon?
Seriously, you know what you’ve got and you’re going to give it to them anyway…so what are you waiting for?

If you are even a little blog savvy, you know how to share your content on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and you probably even know how to use some of the cool time-saving social media tools like HootSuite and Buffer to help with automation.
Now, all this is fine and dandy but the question I want to ask you is – How well are you listening?
