Friday's Marketing RoundUp

Here are this week's top marketing posts:

Publishing and Social networking - Can you be friends with an agent or editor? Find out!

6 Ways Authors can use Facebook to promote their books? Many Facebook users never venture beyond their profile, but there are several other ways to gain visibility on Facebook.

How to be your own Marketing/PR consultant. You can become your own PR consultant without spending mega-bucks to get the job done. (My hubby is killing me for this one since I'm kinda shooting myself in the foot here :)

8 ways to use Blogging as a Social Marketing tool - Dana Lynn Smith is the author of a new book, The Savvy Book Marketer’s Guide to Successful Social Marketing.

PW tells us why we should tweet - Listen up editors, publishers and authors at PW's advice on the benefits of twitter.
