This is an episode from out now-defunct podcast, Digital PowWow With Kiruba and Amar. I thought of adding this episode in a podcast meant for authors for one simple reason- everything we discuss here is relevant to authors, and applicable too!   Introduction: In this solo episode of the Digital PowWow with Kiruba and Amar, Amar talks about something that he came up with: The Social Media Marketer’s Alphabet. A couple of weeks ago, Amar was looking up some information on social media sites as a part of his research for the podcast. He noticed an interesting pattern- the names of the sites began practically with every letter of the English Alphabet. He doodled up a little sheet which he called The Social Media Marketer’s Alphabet, and this podcast episode came out of it. Discussion If one looks at the social media sites, one can notice something interesting: These sites practically represent every letter of the English language alphabet. Sometimes, the name of more than one popular site begins with a given letter. the list goes as follows: A Alexa Alexa provides analytical insights to benchmark, compare and optimize businesses on the web.
