Two Big Questions

This is the part of the podcast where we ask you two big questions. They are:

1. What one tip do you have for people on how to become a Social Pro?

2. If you could do a Skype call with any living person, who would it be and why?

If you have any questions or issues, feel free to contact Jay or Jess and we can help you get set up.

All podcasts are transcribed, and appear on the Convince & Convert blog after taping. All episodes are available on iTunes.

We’ll also send you a “badge” you can add to your website/blog after the show, and we’ll let you know when your episode is live.
