  4. Thanks for including the link to our blogging tutorial we used here at Marketo. I organized an entire month of social media workshops for our employees including a Linkedin Optimization day where we brought in a professional photographer for headshots and optimized each employees profile for search: This was in addition to the blog training which really opened up the voice of our blog by gaining new internal contributors. I think this is essential for a solid content strategy.
