We hear it time and time again, “Our CEO doesn’t want to spend money on Internet Marketing” or “Our company has blocked social networking sites at work!“.

What can you as an employee do about it? Send that resistant fossil (your boss) to this post on Business Weekly ,“CEO Guide to Virtual Worlds“, it highlights the benefits and practical implementation of social media marketing and networking strategies. Some of the topics covered are: The Virtual workplace, Viral Video, Social Networking and Widgets.
