Ahhhhhh, Web 2.0. Or the social web. Or the modern Internet. Or whatever buzzword you want to call it.

Here is the thing: we have entered this incredible world of low-cost opportunity. Social media sites. Blogs. Online video. Digital publishing. The list goes on. And just because it is low-cost, doesn’t mean it is easy. It takes an incredible amount of creativity, drive, passion and smarts to market and promote in this new era of brand building. There is a big difference between a “free” (or low cost) opportunity and taking that opportunity and maximizing it for success.

That is why I was a little fired up when I received an email from someone saying (essentially) that Web 2.0 “doesn’t work” because they haven’t gotten one single client from it. So, I dove in and took a look at their social media presence, website, content and all that jazz and came up with five big tips (as well as mistakes to avoid).

What do you think? What other mistakes do you see being made? What tips would you give?

Fun fact: This is the EXACT premise of Smarter, Faster, Cheaper: Non-Boring, Fluff-free Strategies for Marketing and Promoting Your Business (my new book out this December, but now available for pre-order). We have entered an era of becoming a trusted resource as opposed to a product pusher and it is an incredible opportunity for entrepreneurs to maximize.

It isn’t about how to Tweet or why social media is the greatest thing since the 2009 New Orleans Saints. Or why if you don’t have a blog you need to punch yourself in the face. It is much more than that, and the book draws on my own experiences and some awesome select takeaways from over 150+ interviews over three years. It is how to market and promote by being smarter, faster, cheaper as opposed to dumber, slower, expensive and build your brand in this new era of business. I think you will like it. You can nab it on Amazon right here (and check out the sexy editorial reviews) and also check out the Smarter, Faster, Cheaper website for more, special deals and to nab it at other book retailers.
