One good way to get a brand buzz? Surveys.  Find out more about using surveys on this week’s show with Chelsea Bucoy from Zoomerang on the SHOW PAGE to generate buzz for your brand.

And finally, we also wanted to let you know about:

There’s a ton of geolocation aware app news out there.  We’d like to say we planned this show to coincide with this, especially Facebook’s new Places release.  But that would be like Facebook saying the Places icon is not an implicit smack in the face to the biggest geolocation app out there right now, foursquare.  We are not the only ones who have noticed this…so does TechCrunch among others.

This Sunday, our guest Chris Hulls explains what geolocation apps are, what they are good for and how to get the most out of them.  Check out the SHOW PAGE to find out more and be sure to tune in Sunday.  If you are unable to listen, we’ll have Week In Review links along with the edited show available for download early next week.
