    I like the writers that are pros in various areas of The Examiner but have to admit, some of them are people with a hobby that have deemed themselves with an expert title. While the purpose of this post is to highlight his success I think it is really awesome that people want to communicate so freely! Due to the lack of coverage by traditional media, outlets such as The Examiner have become critical to people who want the information asap! As always, great post, Jeff!

    Great post. It is true so much to learn from the Social Media Examiner Success Story.  I recently Michael’s book “Launch” that shared so many of his “secrets to success.” I find myself referring back to his book often.

     I think that it works only in large countries like U.S. For small countries, it is unrealistic because of small audience.

    Very good case study, although it didn’t really start from zero. Maybe the blog did, but he clearly had a lot of experience and most importantly: contacts that supported him during those initial steps. I can’t deny there is a lot of learn from these points – so thank you for collecting them and writing this post. However, having those good connections is something  that will certainly boost any new venture.

      Indeed! I was just thinking: “Okay, not all of us have Mari and Gary in our back pocket…how to scale this down so that it’s more realistic for those who do not?”
