Below is a portion of an email I got from Marcelo Calbucci today. It's basically a primer on buzz building using social media and SEO. I've been totally impressed with Marcelo's efforts as he has created Seattle 2.0.
No -- this post isn't me paying Marcelo accolades because I'm a finalist in the angel award category. Simply put, Marcelo has done an awesome job and I'm impressed as you all should be in what he's been able to do "part time" and on weekends with Seattle 2.0. Nice job - Marcelo! Truly Kudos to you!
