We asked Peg Fitzpatrick, social media sharpshooter and co-author of "The Art of Social Media" with Guy Kawasaki, to take the hot seat and answer those questions in this week's edition of #ViralChat.

Peg helped grow Kawasaki's social media presence to over 10 million followers.

10 million!!!.... 1.45 million on Twitter alone!

If anyone knows how to master the art of becoming a social media superstar, it's Peg Fitzpatrick.

  • Content that drives massive engagement
  • Promotional posts that convert (without feeling spammy)

And Peg spilled the beans!
