#5 Contrast keeps people interested. With your blog and Twitter content vary tempo, topic, and format.
#9 Stay curious and you will stay current.
#16 Improve the way you use five tools 10 percent each. Cumulatively it will have a big effect.
#37 Being a thought leader is just is just as much about selfless contribution as it is about unique dialogue.
#58 Worry less about selling and more about connecting and rapport.

#107 Think twice, click once.
#102 Social media is 90% contribution and connection, 10% marketing and sales.
#103 Social media belongs to the people. They get to make the rules, not the marketer.

The book contains checklists, trips and strategies, and identifies over 100 sites or tools to use. It said it best on page 174: “Guerilla social media marketing is both a strategy and a way of thinking and living virtual lives. It’s about applying time – tested principles of community building, relationship development, innovation, and imagination to the lightning-fast world of digital social networks.
