Virtual HandshakeThe Marketing Carnival is up at Virtual Handshake.

Be sure to visit Chinese Economies and Opportunities Grow, by David Daniels in Toronto, Canada. An outstanding analysis noting that China now includes account service industries as part of economic growth. Adding big numbers.

I am planning a visit to China to teach and consult making David’s work timely and useful for Your Business Blogger.

Terrific talent hosting the carnival this week. From the Virtual Handshake Amazon blurb:

Book Description

More people have used the Internet to participate in an online group than to read news or even to buy something. Online social networks have enjoyed phenomenal growth in recent years, and every major Internet portal now offers some kind of social networking or “blogging” tool to its users. But these tools are not just recreational – they are rapidly becoming essential tools for business. They are part of a “social software” toolkit that includes blogs, relationship capital management software, advanced contact managers, virtual communities, web conferencing, instant messaging, and much more. The Virtual Handshake gives you the tools to take advantage of these new technologies to become dramatically more successful in business. Filled with clear, real-life examples, The Virtual Handshake shows you how to: * sign new customers, meet new business partners, and find your dream job * create a powerful professional presence online * attract business in online networks * meet more relevant senior people * start and promote your own blog * master the email deluge * analyze and value your social network * use web conferencing and discussion forums to build strong relationships * manage your contact database * ensure privacy and safety online The Virtual Handshake is the first book ever written about how to become extraordinarily successful by using these new online tools. Buying the book gives you a free pass to an extremely thorough and continually-updated resource site, TheVirtualHandshake.com.
