Tales from The Brant Cave by Robert Lavigne, Your Social Business Mentor

I am happy to announce that I have released my first eBook (available as a slideshare and as a downloadable PDF).

It is the first volume in The Brant Cave series and is called Tales from The Brant Cave.

It features insights from my highly successful Social Business Mentor blog.

Enjoy the 163 pages of Social Business, Social Media, Social Networking, and Social Marketing goodness.

Take Care,
