"Twitter Tuesday" on BlogTalkRadio.com - VERY Special Guest this week: Shel Israel (You don't want to miss this one)

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Austin Texas Homes, LLC 453249

In case you didn't already know (i.e. you don't normally read my blog), Ken Cook and I have been hosting a one-hour show called Twitter Tuesday every week at 11am Central (noon Eastern, 10am Mountain, 9am Pacific) on BlogTalkRadio.  We have a guest or two each time, and we talk about various social media topics and using them to grow your business. 


Sometimes, we just riff on each other and use funny sound effects and music to make each other laugh.  It pretty much depends on our mood.

Currently, we are averaging 222 listeners per show for February.  


I think we will likely shatter our listener record once again, with this week's incredible guest, Shel Israel.



About Shel Israel

Hey Jason,

Shattering seems very likely!  What's the capacity of BlogTalkRadio?  Will you have enough bandwidth?

Thanks for positng the link to the radio show. I still haven't made it over your way to listen but with the amount of information and insight you generally offer I would be a fool not to do so.

Thankfully I have a closing on Tuesday around that time, so again I will have to listen later, not live.  Hopefully one of these days I'll get to catch it live.

Hi Jason, I am going to work on being there tomorrow.  I am taking so many classes right now and with my business I don't know which way is up.  This sounds like a very interesting Guest.  I am not familiar with Shel. 

PS, love that you spelled out the time zone differences for us, Lord knows we need it.  See you tomorrow.

I picked up a copy of Naked Conversations after Sarah Cooper wrote a review of it right here in the Rain. But don't tell Shel (or Sarah) that I haven't finished it yet! Tomorrow's schedule looks like I'll have time to listen in; sounds like a great show.
