Round 1 brings on TWITTER! We look at an article by Marc Guberti on a specific strategy on Twitter to bring on more followers.  Joe and Dan aren't going to agree on this, Dan sees this tactic as spam and Joe is more free-spirited and shares his results testing it out.  If you enjoy Twitter, you might want to consider this strategy.
We're stoked to be heading out to New Media Expo in Vegas in January 2014.  Joe's a bit nervous because he's never been to a large conference and not sure of what strategies to use to get the most out of the conference!  Dan already has some experience from his days in real estate and offers his thoughts on the process.  To solve this, there's only one thing to do, GET THE ORGANIZER OF THE EVENT ON AND GET HIS ADVICE.  Check!
