Blogger Relations Strategies are HUGE... but you probably already knew I'd say that... because you're smart like that.

Fellini is always a winner too... can't go wrong there.

Do you really think Twitter is something to watch out for in the business world? I'm all for less formal business practices, but Twitter seems FAR too informal to be any real use.

I would suggest business networks sites/forums for best ways to grow your sites. Thats at least what i do. Myspace/Craiglist/Youtube are good channels but should have correct strategy so they make it out.
And of course ... mailing lists combined with worth by mouth will screw your servers of sales:)
gluck to everyone .. i myself am at the beggining.

Have you been on tweetVolume Toby? It's a Google and Twitter mash up and enables buzz measurement.

Take a peek.

Makes Twitter a measurable tool in a way - unfortunately there is still no way to tell tone of voice or is there?

Which Social Networking venue would you consider to be better for branding? Would you rather use MySpace or LinkedIn to up your credibility and respectability?

As someone who is always interested in reaching animal supporters from multiple age groups, I guess we'd have to use all of them simultaneously.

Twitter is hot. Red hot. And businesses are figuring out how to leverage them for success.

Tim - thanks for the reminder about BR. It's one tactic that will continue to gain in acceptance as bloggers gain in influence.

Cassandra - I agree with Geoff. Twitter is hot and there are applications for biz use. I like the fact that it saves the history of the chat on a website. Now if there were a way to see all/both sides of the conversation on one post.

Hi Zonders Marketing - Wish I knew your name (smile). Social networks are great ways to build community and listen in on CGC.

Rajesh - Sounds like a cool mash-up app that will speed the acceptance of micro blogging.

Danielle - Great question that you seemed to find your own answer to. I would say go where your people hang out. For some it could be MySpace for others Facebook for others Flickr. Yes, multiple networks might well be the answer. However, keep in mind that social networks, like blogs, are hungry critters that demand attention. At least to get them going (smile).
