Marketing Tip:
Social Media made Simple with NutshellMail
Visit eWomen Network website
I've started using NutshellMail to manage my Facebook and Twitter accounts through one simple email delivered to my Inbox. Nutshell Mail and Constant Contact have joined forces to help clients with their Social Media efforts.

NutshellMail is a free service that makes it easy to monitor, manage and interact with friends, fans and customers through social media. It works by collecting and organizing the latest messages and activity from social networks -- including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and MySpace -- into an interactive email snapshot that is delivered directly to your email inbox.

Users can customize the content they want to track, add search terms, and choose how frequently they want to receive email updates. Signing up for a NutshellMail account takes just a few minutes, and the time savings start right away.

With NutshellMail, users can easily monitor and interact with social networks all in one place, including posting updates right from their email inbox. The free service helps busy professionals keep track of critical conversations about their company and the competition, and keeps them informed about what their customers are talking about -- all from the place where they spend most of their online time.
