Last Friday, we had the privilege of having MC Hammer as a surprise guest on HubSpot TV . Along with being an MC, a dancer and a Twitter celebrity with over 120 thousand followers, he's also an  inbound marketing  and social media guru.

Here are four great tips he offered  on the show :

1) Social media is no more than an extension of what we do naturally.


2) Use the Internet to shorten the distance betwen you and your consumers.


3) Forget the number. Just stay interesting!


4) Even during a recession, don't stop dreaming. Opportunity lies in tough times.


What do you think? Do you think he's right? Any other advice you would offer marketers engaging in social media?

Thank you so much to MC Hammer for making the trip to our offices and offering such great tips!
