Lessons Learned from A Year of Getting Social and Doing Business
lisa.duke@simplified-tech.com (Lisa Duke)    

If you will be attending Social Connections II in Cardiff this Friday... spoiler alert!  Everyone else, read on.  


Top Ten Things I've Learned from a Year of Getting Social and Doing Business


1.        External social media participation shortens sales cycles by building trust and proving competence.

2.        Social media allows small businesses to act like big businesses and requires big businesses act more like small businesses.

3.        You can't just "do" social media and expect financial results.  Your business plan should drive your marketing plan, which should drive your social media plan.  

4.        Social media is not the same as social business.  You should be doing both.

5.        Both IT and marketing are claiming "social" expertise, and both are faking it.

6.        The inmates are running the asylum (Mary Beth Raven).

7.        Social business requires line of business.

8.        "What's the ROI of your mother?" (Gary Vaynerchuck)

9.        Collaboration – when I change tools, it requires you to change (Michael Sampson).

10.        Email is not going away.  Amazon AND the mall exist.
