Over the past few weeks I have been reading a book called [Twitter Power](http://www.amazon.com/Twitter-Power-Dominate-Market-Tweet/dp/0470458429) by [Joel Comm](http://www.joelcomm.com/). As many of you know I am not a big fan of books, but I have to say it is one of my favorite books. Even though I already know a lot about social media it made me think about [Twitter](http://www.twitter.com) in a new way. Here are a few things I learned:
Almost everyone on this planet wants to become successful, there is no doubt about it. You can’t blame people for wanting this. Success in wealth can take you places you’ve always dreamed of going and buy you things you always wished for. Success in contribution allows you to feel the joy and happiness in others feeling fulfilled. Success in spirituality allows one to explore areas of their mind that bring them closer to enlightenment. Since there are several different areas of success that people want to indulge in, it’s no surprise they’re willing to do whatever it takes to get it.

If you find yourself looking for a great advertising agency, [All Advertising Agencies](http://alladvertisingagencies.com/) is a site that helps businesses find and contact advertising agencies based on the specific kinds of services they are looking for, their industry, budget and location. By providing just the relevant agencies, All Advertising Agencies allows businesses to rapidly filter out most agencies, and spend their time narrowing down the right match from a smaller pool of possibilities.
Getting bored of those dull Internet marketing conferences? Most of them are packed with great information, but if you have been to any of them, you’ll realize that they can be boring.
Have you seen those [big checks](http://www.shoemoney.com/gallery/v/misc/adsensecheck.jpg.html) on the web from affiliate marketers showing how they made thousands, if not millions of dollars? I know I have, and every time I see one of those checks I always think about how I too could make that kind of money through affiliate marketing.
One of my friends just released a new service called [Search Muffin](http://searchmuffin.com/) that allows you to see how you rank on Google in different locations. As you know, Google has different datacenters, so it is always a wise thing to see where you rank regionally.
One of my friends, [DK](http://www.purposeinc.com), had a chance to visit [Facebook](http://www.purposeinc.com/pwp/2009/03/04/facebook-advertising/) a few weeks ago and he learned some cool stuff about it.

Marketing doesn’t always have to involve using methods like search engine optimization, email marketing, or banner advertising. Instead of using expensive methods of marketing you can also market your company by giving your product away for free to select bloggers.

My Documents is something we all use. Whether you have a PC or a MAC, you are probably using some sort of documents folder. The major problem with storing your documents on one computer, is that you can’t access them from another computer?
