Wonderful post Donna. I think one of the hardest things to spot is motivation. Degrees don't give that data.

I am really disappointed in this post. Not because the content wasn't great because it was, I just thought the title was misleading. I really thought there was someone named "Programmed Content" who offed someone named "Community." I really wished these social media "celebrities" would be naming their kids wacko names like "Engagement" and "Tweepie."

Please, if you are going to try to scam me via email, please use proper English. It makes me want to mark it up with red ink and send it back.

Please, if I am ordering breakfast to go and there is toast involved, please throw in some butter. I mean, who the hell eats toast without butter?

Please if you are a cashier and you just gave me my change, at least give me 1 second to move, versus looking over my shoulder at the next customer.

Please, if you are an ice machine, please just give me my damn ice, versus just making an annoying noise which makes me believe you are working, when you are not.

Please trade Marion Barber.

I try to give my clients 3 choices, maybe 4 at the most. They are paying me to give them direction and to create the best results I can for them. I know of an agency that offers their clients 10-12 different choices and not only do they spend a ridiculous amount of resources on the creation of them, it is very overwhelming to the client.

Terrific post.

I have two. The first would be to block social media period, unless it is in a controlled monitored environment. The second would be to turn work into a competition. When I worked as a loan officer for one of the largest banks in the country, I wasn't a top sales person because of the crazy commission checks. I was because of the production reports they passed around every single day. It literally killed me when someone I disliked had better numbers than me and it made me literally stay until my numbers were higher. If you keep track of everyone's productivity and make it public, your employees productivity will go up immediately, trust me on that one.

That's right, you can't. You can only speculate. Their traffic is up over 315% since last year. How is that flattening? Because of a month? Groupon could very well end faltering and at the end perhaps taking that offer could have been their best bet, but at this stage to use exact language is just, well, crazy. @faybiz @rustyspeidel

Gini, why were they stupid to walk away from the 6B offering? Do you know the details of the offer Google was even giving? Do you think Google was just going to hand them a check for 6B without stipulations based upon future earnings etc? And for what percentage of the company and voting control? Until we see what type of capital they are able to raise via IPO or a private offering (more ways to raise money than an IPO), it is rather silly at this point to say Groupon was stupid to walk away from Google. I have no idea how you can draw this conclusion without A: knowing the exact details and B: knowing the finality of their public/private stock offering.

It isn't about if the person is an intern or a "PR pro" because I have met plenty of idiots in both positions. Whoever you decide to do your social media efforts, should have a firm understanding of the brand and the brand's message. Most importantly there should be a firm social media policy in place before any social media is done. The person hiring the social media person should shadow the new person for a few weeks like any other job, to make sure they can be trusted.

Yes, a company could be losing money on doing it themselves or having someone do it for them. It is really a case by case basis.

When dealing with our clients, we do the math and first figure out if it is going to be profitable for them. Then we figure out if it will be more ideal for Dashal to handle the strategy and execution or for us to develop a plan and strategy for that particular business. Then we coach them on how they can do it themselves. And sometimes neither of those make sense.

Gini, I have to agree with you on this. You always have to keep in mind the value of your time.

Point being, I think if you are going to target so specific and with such a small audience, you need to make sure that specific sale, justifies the time you spent.

I would say the biggest mistake most people make, is they calculate their ROI based on money alone. The biggest part of that equation is how much time you spent. The time investment is in most cases substancially more important.
