  23. 23. In Conclusion PowerPoint does a great job breaking things down into manageable parts, but it does a bad job expressing the power and excitement of a unique, integrated new-media campaign. This is the frontier of marketing and web 2.0 provides each brand an unprecedented ability to create completely customized initiatives. The goal of this presentation is not to place boundaries on what we will do, but to explain a few of the things we can do. Above all else, remember that the elements detailed here can be used alone, but work best when used together in an innovative, integrated campaign. Each piece amplifies the effect of the whole. The BIG Idea
