Enterprise Social Media Marketing Platform Features

Shoutlet is a company that I’ve been wanting to write about for quite a while. Good friend Chuck Tobar stopped by our office last week and we had a lengthy discussion on enterprise social media marketing platforms and the skyrocketing growth and attention that Shoutlet is getting in the industry.

Recently, friend Scott Bleczinski joined the Shoutlet board – Scott is one of the best sales executives I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with so I’m sure we’ll all continue to see Shoutlet leading the industry.
