A presentation I gave at the Canadian Marketing Association's CMA 1:1 Direct Engagement Conference on October 2, 2014.

The narrative of the presentation was how social media marketers and direct marketers should be combining their skill sets to work closer together to drive business results through social channels.

Five points were touched on:

1. Understand each other
2. Know your audience
3. Know the platforms
4. Reciprocate
5. Unify measurement
