  • This was a phenomenal presentation! I wish Mary Ellen had been given more time, because I would love to hear more about the ways women could, and should, be using these social media outlets to their benefit. The statistics cited in her presentation are proof positive of that. Mary Ellen is a prime example of how social networking can be used to create a client base and build a successful business. I hope she continues to sound her horn on this subject, because it’s an area that can’t be ignored. And please keep up the marketing nuggets through Twitter! I love them!
