Most middle school kids AIM and have mySpace profiles. Millions of college students live their lives together on FaceBook. YouTube hosts mainstream presidential debates. Wikipedia dominates Google search results. Bloggers mine buzz-pockets for personal pleasure and business objectives. Soccer moms, stay-home dads, doctors, traffic cops, taxi drivers, lawyers, and ministers are plugged in to some extent.The whole world has gone “social.”
BUZZER! Marketing pros understand they absolutely must explore and learn to leverage the awesome power of social media to target and engage demographics-or be left behind!
October 16th & 17th, 2007 New York City hosts the definitive social media power-think exposition, SMX Social Media 2007. A few tickets remain and the show will likely sell out early this week. Here is the full agenda.
It’s No Secret.
It’s no secret that your customers hang out by the tens of millions on major meet-greet-bookmark and hang sites like StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit, Del.icio.us, FaceBook, youTube, Wikipedia, Flickr, and MySpace. There are countless niche specific micro-social communities like Sphinn and over 80 million blogs. Nearly half of the world’s websites have blog-like social media tools and RSS feeds which interconnect them.
Now that everyone knows that search has become social, what are you doing to learn about more about the tactics and techniques to mine social media gold? There is nary a business on earth which can afford to disregard this revolution. Participate or be left behind.
