"I don't like to ask someone to do something I'm not willing to do myself. Obviously, as we grow we can't be everywhere at the same time, but keeping this in mind makes you think about whether something is really that important." - Robert Dyer

Social Media And Digital Marketing - Its Not What You Might Think

I just love Gary Vaynerchuk. His books the Thank You Economy and Jab Jab Jab Right Hook are wonderful commentaries on how marketing has changed. You see, it used to be businesses could sort of not tell the whole truth. Some promoted and shared the good news, avoiding the bad and hoping you might not notice. In today's world, with 70% of the US having smart phones and large percentages of consumers participating in social networks, there is no hiding anymore. This is where the humanization of business is becoming so important to organizational success.

I've shared my friend and partner Bryan O'Rourke's recent IHRSA Institute presentation above on Social Media and Digital Marketing. Take a look and you'll see the future is not so much about technology, its about people and how technology can be a tool to be more caring of the people your organization should care about.

What do YOU think ? I'd love to know.
