Who haven’t you talked to in a while?

One of the questions I get all of the time in social media marketing is, “How do I get new clients?” Perfectly acceptable question, except – so many of us have old clients we haven’t talked to in so long don’t you kind of wonder what happened to them? I’m just as guilty of this…
