Over the past 6 months or so, Pronet Advertising has seen healthy growth in traffic, RSS subscribers, as well as the site’s Technorati rank. In line with the site’s rising importance and as more and more people rely on the site for the latest in social media and online marketing news, reviews, and commentary, we are expanding our already great stable of writers to better serve you. Here’s a look at the first batch of 3 new writers.
The reason why I write about how companies are managing their corporate profiles online is because based on this we can learn and apply lessons to our own companies.

Getting people to try out your product is great, and when they like it and buy it, that’s even better. But whether they will stay with you in the long-run, (i.e developing customer loyalty) and whether they will become repeat customers depends a lot on how you treat them once they have given you a nod. And part of how you treat them includes talking to them when they express their disappointment or an issue they’re having. With the internet, and now that everyone has blogs, it has become even more important to see what people are saying about your company online, and responding to that.
There is no denying, by whatever measure you use, that Digg gets a lot of inbound traffic and as a result, generate a lot of outbound traffic for the site’s that get showcased on its homepage. But if you look close enough, a lot of Digg’s incoming traffic is absolutely useless.
When Spotplex launched its beta back in February, it garnered a lot of coverage. And why shouldn’t it? Everyone loves a Digg killer, and the site seemed to have a foolproof way of calculating popularity and sharing information with other users without having to worry about organized gaming and voter fraud. Let’s take a look at how true these assertions are and now that the site is finally out of beta, if much has changed or not.
We at Pronet Advertising are committed to bringing you the latest and most important in social media and new media news, reviews, commentary, and marketing strategies. But we can’t do it alone and that’s why we’re looking for more great bloggers to join our stable.
Dave Winer over at Scripting News today is experimenting with something that may very well become the next step for Twitter.
When we first covered the Facebook Marketplace, it wasn’t completely clear how the social network would make money from the service. I was creating a listing on the site last night when this aspect became abundantly clear.
