I wanted to take a moment to re-introduce you to my co-author, Jocelyn Carter Miller. We have not worked together for the last seven years but now have reconnected to update Networlding: Building Relationships and Opportunities for Success. Just as Seth Godin is leading this year as what he might even term, “The Year of Publishing,” Jocelyn and I are focused and committed to writing the full update of Networlding.
After 10 years of development, over 3000 people taken through the seven-step Networlding process, more than 30 Fortune 1000 and Fortune 500 companies involved in Networlding in some form and a list of 12,000 various social media followers, we are excited to share our decade of learnings and insights. With forty chapters filled with one story after another showcasing the many principles of Networlding, this new book should be helpful to you in taking your social media and social networking initiatives up many levels.
Probably the most exciting thing I can offer right now is that you can subscribe to the Networlding newsletter or blog and especially to our Blog Talk Radio show where we are going through the entire book, co-creating it (Step #6 of Networlding) weekly, at least two chapters a week. It’s my idea–a unique way to write a book. After we get done with each show, we have it transcribed and then add to it. The shows will only be up for a couple of months and then we’ll take them down. So, if you are interested, be sure to listen by clicking here!
