Occasionally, I get a little free time (OK, I just don’t sleep for a while) and write an eBook or two. These books are based on my first-hand experiences with each topics and offer the best practices and tricks that I have learned along the way. Being a digital marketer by day means that I see a lot of social media successes and mistakes. My goal with these eBooks is to help you have more of the former and avoid the latter.
All of my eBooks, to date, have been distributed through wedu’s (the company I work for) website.
