When I was recently asked to join SmartBrief on Social Media‘s advisory board, I had no idea how many big names were going to come along for the ride as well. I feel truly humbled to be in the company of folks like Ogilvy Worlwide’s John Bell, Connie Bensen, Guy Kawasaki, Geno Church, Ann Handley, Shel Israel, John Moore and Valeria Maltoni – to name a few. With such an impressive team of advisors, I am pretty sure that SmartBrief’s foray into the world of Social Media intelligence will be pretty solid.
From SmartBrief‘s blog:
To keep stride with social media as it races ahead, SmartBrief has assembled an impressive list of social media thought leaders and practitioners as advisers and contributors to the daily SmartBrief on Social Media newsletter, accompanying blog and @SBoSM on Twitter.
In case you aren’t yet familiar with SmartBrief, the group provides must-read news and intelligence in 20 key industries to over 1.5 million thought leaders and high potential professionals. (That’s you, by the way.) Subscriptions are basically free, thanks to partnerships with 70 leading trade associations and professional societies. Find out more here. It’s pretty cool stuff.
