Snips from my Twitter stream while at the #BMA09 conference last Thursday (edited for blog-reading clarity):
- Does Linked-In benefit companies like mine? No. Me personally? Could.
- @Thor_Harris Linked-In … Maybe for local sales reps, I’ll consider that.
- I wonder … Industrial marketing = business marketing?
- For B2B Experience Economy, I think we have to target the “real-real” place.
- Google presentation: search usage much more pervasive … web content has to be efficient, then let face-to-face work efficiently.
- Sessions at #bma09 feel like a twitter stream about social media.
- @lrh actually most people in the room have ‘company blogs’, but not many admitted they suck.
- The web-presence session undersold the message from Getty Images about adding visual content. How do we look authentic?
- @amylillard Outlaw marketing! Management lesson most actionable so far today!
- Social-community session scares me about the top-down use of blogging. It’s about numbers- users, posts, $$. Ugh.
- @jaymce Will social media “automation” just pollute? Each site/media has a different context.
- @b2bcommunicate glad my vibe came thru. At #bma09 authenticity repeatedly came up. Johnny Cash is certainly a great example! (cues iTunes.)
What’s it all mean? Well that’s part of the fun of Twitter. Big hint in bold above. Hopefully I can discuss here at length later this week.
This was my first event using Twitter. It was fun to see what others thought or observed, and gave a reason to meet people in person. Beats whispering to the person sitting next to you.
(More Twitter and actual session summaries are posted by the BMA.)
