The End of Business as Usual by Brian Solis is available on GetAbstract for those who need the key takeaways but don't have the time to read the entire book.
The digital revolution is radically transformative for businesses. These changes are not just technological. They directly affect consumer behavior. Companies that cannot adapt to these changes face obsolescence. Businesses used to define their brands. Today, “connected consumers” define them. Companies must connect with consumers on a personal basis. They must treat consumers as valued partners, not just as sales targets.
To build relationships and win sales, companies need to create satisfying experiences for their connected consumers. The way people connect online activates distribution chains that rival any broadcast network. To earn the trust of connected customers, businesses must engage them online in a positive way. You must appeal to customers’ emotions. Through such engagement, businesses stay relevant and build a robust future.

1) What strategies will help you exploit the nature, extent and impact of the digital revolution; 2) What influence “connected consumers” wield; and 3) How organizations can engage them effectively.
