Smart of them to sell at this point, their marketing of themselves was awesome in 2011- mid 2012, then it fell apart in 2013. Wise of them to get out before running out of funding and simply disappearing.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Klout Acquired: Should We Care?
As I have said time and time again... Klout Shmout. They are nothing more than an agency and even at this price-tag were sold at too high a valuation (kudos to them for getting Lithium to fork over so much). Mark my words, Lithium will regret this acquisition at such a high price.
#'s 1, 8, and 10 worthwhile. Videos, and images, ok when appropriate and contextual, but in general I disagree. The rest I say ignore.

Great post Seth. Assumptions are the mother of all screw-ups. I personally love the old adage... "When you ASSUME, you make an ASS out of U and ME." Best demonstrated by Tony Randel, on a chalk board, playing Felix Unger in one of my favorite Odd Couple TV episodes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEP1acj29-Y
More importantly it causes us to be stagnant, view things from our own perspective instead of that of those we are trying to serve, or sell. Marketing 101... don't market to yourself, market to your target audience and understand what it is they want, need, and /or desire.
@nickkellet Agreed. Make it a great week Nick!

Love it Nick. Publish, publish, publish... so easy in so many easily accessible and sharable platforms now. Welcome to the ‘Age of Influence,’ where anyone can build an audience and effect change, advocate brands, build relationships and make a difference.
"Don't act on it" "Battling" Seriously??? Like this is a disease. All I can say is... how unfortunate people can even think this way.
"They’re homosexuals, and they may well be open about their attraction. But they don’t act on it.
Just like alcoholics who are successfully battling the urge against the bottle, they have taken up their own struggle to not act against their genetic programming that they have otherwise been unable to change, whether they want to change it or not."

1 year, 1 month ago on Warning: Multiple Site “Best Practice” Not Always The Best Practice
Since my social mantra has always been about Return on Relationship™, it’s refreshing to see a shift in the corporate mind-set regarding the business use of social media. According to a 2012 Social Business Benchmarking Study by FedEx and Ketchum, large companies still view social as a tool for building brand loyalty and strengthening customer relationships… and in my opinion that has a long way to go. However, they are also beginning to see the benefits of scaling social to other relationship-driven aspects of the business, from enhancing collaboration and dialog with stakeholders, to strengthening relationships with employees and vendors.
And it’s about time! Since everything we do in business relies on developing and strengthening good relationships, why lock the most effective relationship-building tool we have in a marketing closet? Take away the “social media is for marketing” blinders, and all kinds of possibilities within your organization become clear. Shift your approach from Social Marketing to Social Business. The value of Social goes well beyond marketing.
Great post Gini!
