  1. Great article! #1 is a hard selling point to many companies who want to toot their own horn or place daily, weekly sales deals on their sites.

    #9 is also a key topic. Without a plan, you are lost. Social media should not be your entire marketing plan, but what is being posted should be part of your brand strategy and the message that you are trying to get across.
