Social media and sales (another!) response


The US Thanksgiving holiday saw a report from IBM telling us that social media referrals had a minimal impact on sales.   We’ve been here before, in October a Forrester analyst claimed the same thing, in response to which I wrote this post.

In his Wall Street Journal article, Tom Gara (as an aside worth following for a good source of info about the Middle East) said that this will need “some serious spinning by social media gurus.”  Sadly, I’m not a guru, but the presentation above is my take on an ever-present issue.

NB, I post less frequently here now.  My new website, devoted to all things visual social media is here.
