Reading: Some quick handy stats about social media and lead generation

Olivier Blanchard’s The Brandbuilder Blog is a consistent source of great articles on social media marketing. Blanchard favors detailed exploration of issues surrounding social media. Recent articles The 5 basic rules of calculating the value of a Facebook ‘fan’ and The petty tyrannies of social media illustrate the breadth of topics covered on The Brandbuilder.
