PoultryCast Sponsor Report Nov Dec 2008

  1. 1. November/December, 2008 How much volatility will there be in the marketplace? What impacts will the new administration have on our industry? What will our customers be willing and able to pay for? Many of the questions on our minds as we wrapped up 2008 remain. But most of us are more than happy to turn the page on a year with so much volatility and uncertainty. The paradigm we have for our industry has certainly continued to shift. And the new paradigm may be one focused on change and the ability to quickly adapt to new challenges and opportunities rather than simply a new viewpoint on our industry. Ultimately, we welcome the hope that the new year brings. So allow me this chance to wish you, your family, and your business a more successful and profitable new year. The first few months of this new year are going to be very exciting for PoultryCast. Nearly every week of our calendar features an industry leading event.

  4. 4. Sponsor Report, November/December, 2008 We want to share some interesting articles to help you with your marketing efforts. Excerpted from the Wall Street Journal, quot;The Secrets of Marketing in a Web 2.0 Worldquot;, By SALVATORE PARISE , PATRICIA J GUINAN and BRUCE D. WEINBERG, January 1, 2009, For marketers, Web 2.0 offers a remarkable new opportunity to engage consumers. If only they knew how to do it. That's where this article aims to help. We interviewed more than 30 executives and managers in both large and small organizations that are at the forefront of experimenting with Web 2.0 tools. From those conversations and further research, we identified a set of emerging principles for marketing. But first, a more basic question: What is Web 2.0, anyway? Essentially, it encompasses the set of tools that allow people to build social and business connections, share information and collaborate on projects online. That includes blogs, wikis, social-networking sites and other online communities, and virtual worlds. Millions of people have become familiar with these tools through sites like Facebook, Wikipedia and Second Life, or by writing their own blogs. And a growing number of marketers are using Web 2.0 tools to collaborate with consumers on product development, service enhancement and promotion. But most companies still don't appear to be well versed in this area. So here's a look at the principles we arrived at--and how marketers can use them to get the best results. Don't just talk at consumers--work with them throughout the marketing process. Web 2.0 tools can be used to do what traditional advertising does: persuade consumers to buy a company's products or services. An executive can write a blog, for instance, that regularly talks up the company's goods. But that kind of approach misses the point of 2.0. Instead, companies should use these tools to get the consumers involved, inviting them to participate in marketing-related activities from product development to feedback to customer service. Also, we recommend listening to Marketing Over Coffee with Chris Penn and John Wall. Marketing Over Coffee is an internet radio program (podcast) that covers both classic and new marketing. The program is runs about 20 minutes and comes out on Thursday mornings. Their weekly insight on and keen observations of marketing is at Finally, Chris Brogan, well known social media influencer, offers his best advice about social networking. If one understands the way social networks can deliver value, they have the opportunity to do more for themselves than ever before. What used to be a fairly linear world, one with ladders to climb rank, and lines to wait in for limited resources, are now built of vast and flexible networks, For more information some loose and some rigid. Our social networks, both the old-fashioned type in real life, as well as the new constructs contact Truffle at created by social software, give us the ability to do amazing things for ourselves and for others.
