I was reading an article (from Michael Gass) on social media, and realized how many people in the marketing area are looking at social marketing from a very narrow angle.
Social Media’s (&social marketing’s) effect on Web Marketing can be considered as being similar to Web’s effect on marketing.
Social Marketing is to Web Marketing,
what Web was to Marketing!
The effect is total change, a need for a different mindset, different organization and people with different skills.

“Social media is much more than a tactic. The more you participate in social media and learn what can be gleaned, you will soon realize its potential. Rich, valuable and instantaneous feedback from your audience. Lots of opportunity to conduct primary research. A wealth of information from online discussions as informative as the very best focus groups.”
