  • Thanks michael for sharing insightful thoughts, thanks mitch for so useful words. Content has really been playing critical role in empowering digital presence and since the rise of social media, especially since the era  of user generated content started, it has immensely impacted the whole social media strategy for any organization. Especially, with video content becoming extremely popular mean of social marketing people are getting connected with companies in a much quicker and faster way then earlier. But personally speaking, i still feel that small business unlike the global brands, find it really very tough to convert social media mates into genuine business leads. Big question is how to convert those funky men into genuine leads. If this how is answered, social media will really replace whole marketing chains for small businesses.

  • ‘Journalistic imperative vs. marketing initiative’ I like this and it’s an approach I strive for since I am a former journo:)

    (Loved Mitch’s thoughts on video too!)

    merchantdise to the public.i’m surprised and sometimes overcome by the sheere volunm of information
    out there.however i do find social media helpful in that,the way they give the info to you.i am not a good writer
    but i do hope to gain knowledge to use in my business, i thank social media for their insights.

  •  I enjoyed MItch’s insight.  I agree that business blogs should be seen as a journalistic imperative rather than a campaign.  I also think that your interp of social media being more about being findable and sharable rather than a conversation and engagement is a very interesting view. Great interview!

  •  Completely agree with your ideas.
