    • Uncertainty About Twitter • “Hard to track and measure” • “Not sure what to make of it yet. Is it a fad or is it a useful tool?” • “Losing its edge”
    • LESSONS
    • New Media is NOT a silver bullet “YOU NEED TO BE ON FB, MS, Twitter, FF, etc, etc, etc.”
    • New Media is NOT a silver bullet “YOU NEED TO BE ON FB, MS, Twitter, FF, etc, etc, etc.” “YOU NEED TO HAVE YOUR WINES RATED BY WINE BLOGGERS.”

    • New Media is NOT a silver bullet “YOU NEED TO BE ON FB, “YOU MS, Twitter, FF, NEED to etc, etc, etc.” BLOG.” “YOU NEED TO HAVE YOUR WINES RATED BY WINE BLOGGERS.” WHAT IS THE TRUTH? Your brand will benefit from a good social media strategy that is PART of your overall digital strategy. PICK the social network where YOUR type of customers are engaging. Do activities that yield the HIGHEST ROI for your efforts.
    • What new media will give to you • Exposure • Likelihood to be recommended • Customer acquisition • Extended customer life time value (LTV) • Measurement • Unparalleled access
    • Content is King From customer relationship management to customer-managed relationships MESSAGE MUST BE RELEVANT
    • Business is Personal The Godfather was wrong
    • Integrate the Old & New New media is just 1 (one, uno, eins, un, ichi, ) communication channel.
    • Integrate the Old & New New media is just 1 (one, uno, eins, un, ichi, ) communication channel. Publicity initially gained online may eventually get reinforced by traditional media. E-marketing, website, employee relations, community release, PR.
    • Be Patient Don’t expect immediate sales payoff, but you can expect uptake in discussions. Again, brand building is not the same as sales.
    • Set clear goals Finding trends and tracking them back to their point of origin is the key to measuring ROI. • Number of referrers on your e-commerce site (assuming you can track this data) from your website or Twitter • Number of coupons used that were given away in a Facebook campaign to start calculating which sales stemmed from your social media campaigns • Hash tags on Twitter, redirects in links • Use bit.ly
    • Take aways 1) Listen 2) Be Authentic 3) Be Transparent 4) Engage 5) Care
