“
      While social media is not the silver bullet
      that some pundits claim it to be, !
      it is an extremely important !
      & relatively low cost touch point !
      that has a direct impact on sales !
      & positive word of mouth.!
      !
      Companies not actively engaging are
      missing a huge opportunity !
      & are saying something to consumers!
      —intentionally or unintentionally!
      —about how willing they are !
      to engage on consumers’ terms.”

THE BOTTOM LINE:
It’s time to get social.
4
 BLOGGING
“     The bottom line is that
      blogging is like sex. !
      You can’t fake it. You can’t fake
      passion. You can’t fake wanting !
      to engage with the public. !
      If you do, it will ultimately be an
      unsatisfying experience for both !
      the blogger and their readers.”
