Well before the current frenzy over “tweets gone wild,” Joe Barnes walked into businesses, for profits and non-profits, and would ask: “What’s your social media policy?” The usual response was: We don’t have one, or “Go talk to marketing about that.” In his travels he realized that nearly every business and organization he walked into, no matter what size, did not have a written social media policy, nor did they clearly understand or even know what the Federal Trade Commission requires in the way of disclosure. That’s why he wrote his book: “Social Media Ethics Made Easy: How to Comply with FTC Disclosure Requirements.” The book is available from Business Expert Press or on Amazon. Our host today is Matthew Cummings.

00:0000:00

Why it Matters:

"We now live in a world where companies and brands no longer have control of marketing, advertising, or the conversation with their customers."

In a very short period of time, the balance of power has shifted dramatically away from push communication strategy, and morphed into a collaborative engagement strategy between consumers, brands, and channel partners. So, in this new world, is there still a place for CRM (Customer Relationship Management) or the Experience Economy? Are these concepts outdated and need to be thrown out? If so, what has replaced them for marketers who practice and depend on loyalty and relationship management?n our fast paced ½ hour together we will hear from Michael Lynch. With a career as diverse as loyalty itself, Lynch comes from years in both the gaming and hospitality industries. Read the rest of this entry »
