Before doing so I just wanted to say thank you! I know there are a ton of blogs out there and I really appreciate you all for taking the time out of your busy days to generate conversations, provide insights, and share experiences. It’s your passion that continually drives us all to embrace change and listen to all the voices that are helping shape the future of marketing, communications and social media.
It has been a pleasure to get to know you all and I am excited to see what 2009 brings! Wishing you all a year filled with much continued change, healthy debate, prosperity and new friendships!
And it wouldn’t be a New Year’s post without a prediction or two! Here’s mine:
In 2009 companies will begin implementing social media, but with a traditional marketing mindset. Meaning, they will start to embrace the tools but will do as one-way communication because it’s what they are most comfortable with. (While this type of implementation might draw scrutiny from some, I believe it’s a step in the right direction.)
What’s your prediction for 2009?
(And yes, it’s a real Philadelphia Mummer!)
