So I laid low over the holidays barely even taking a peek at Twitter and Facebook, but one of the first items of interest I spot upon logging back into Twitter on January 2nd was a tweet from my friend Karen Locker about favoriting a YouTube video for something called eCom Connections. Upon playing the video I was delighted to discover that Karen and Kat Simpson, another social media buddy of mine, are going to be co-hosting a brand new ecommerce podcast!
Here’s the skinny, straight from the eCom Connections press release:
