There is only about 48 hours left for qualification of my article to get into the Marketing Pilgrim’s final! If you haven’t been following along here is the skinny one what has been happening… I wrote an article with an example of how to use Social Media Leverage and entered it into the competition and then promptly got caught up in some other stuff like losing a week in a country town.

While I am glad I have not resorted to blatant link swapping like another entrant, I have not done much more than link it in one forum and that was it. Poor effort on my behalf and even though I believe in content standing on its own two feet, I also know that reaching out to the more influential people in your network of friends and asking them to help out is probably a VERY sensible thing to do….do you hate asking favours like that? I know I do…weird.

Yep “wah wah” I am using the gender card to explain my lack of cahonies in going out and promoting!
So my dear readers, please read the article, perform whatever wonderful social adulation you believe it deserves.
Here is the link again in case you missed it the first time
