    Hello Kristi,

    I saw this post on Twitter through Ana Hoffman’s feed. I like Ana’s style a lot.

    I see that she recommends your Blog Post Ultimate Promotion Guide. I will check it out for sure.

    I have a question for you. Ana recommends not to use Akismet, instead use GASP. I’ve done that as soon as I read it a few months ago. Do you also recommend that?

      My advice is that if you do use Akismet, you have to be vigilant about monitoring your spam filter. I use that and GASP and still get a good bit of spam on a daily basis, but a lot less than if I was only using one plugin or the other.

    These social media links are becoming extremely important. The online world is becoming increasingly involved and falling behind on social media trends and best practices could spell the end for your chance at online success. Keeping up to date on this stuff is essential!

    Hi, Kristi! I’ve read some of your recommendations, but my favorite is “Measuring Marketing Effectiveness: 6 Metrics You Need to Track ” – without measuring, you go blindly in your marketing campaigns, you spend time, effort, even money, to realize that in the end, your objectives weren’t actually achieved.
