As a small business owner, what are your digital marketing priorities heading into 2014?
For all of the engagement opportunity that social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn present, they also offer limited measurement capability outside of growth.

So what’s a marketer to do? How can the digital-word-of-mouth power of Twitter be harnessed but in a trackable email-like way?
