First off, my free friday follow continues – each week I draw one random twitter follower with the help of twitrand.com and send them a copy of my book, Duct Tape Marketing, along with the highly fashionable, ducttapematters t-shirt. This week’s winner is Alaina Green – from Denver, CO, a Marketing & PR Associate for Jewish Family Service of Colo (By the way the image is courtesy of past winners – Avasiare – this was uploaded to twitpic)
