    Mr. Mayfield,

    I actually read the interview on INC before I ran across this post, and I love them both. As someone who was just hired as a social media consultant at an online auction marketplace,, I have been balancing the task of maintaining the blog and other social media platforms while trying to convey the importance of reaching out to traditional marketing and performing a balancing act of the two. Is this a futile effort? Should I focus on one more then the other, or will this end up being a positive outcome?

    Thank you again for the post, I really enjoyed reading it.

    I think PR is one of the more important things entrepreneurs should outsource IMO. Inc. did a good job of saying that.
