Test Your Readiness To Purchase or Sell Social Media

By BusinessLife, published on Sep 15, 2010

Social media has a lot to offer your current clients and those on your radar as well. But selling social media takes more than having a Facebook and Twitter account while commenting on a blog or two.

On the other hand, in this economy as a buyer, there are many who want to be able to sell whatever is of interest and need. Specifically, there are an endless supply of marketing and advertising agencies available, as well as those who may be misrepresenting themselves by offering to develop and design such things as a professional website for $399.
