Judge again so you can possibly influence them to take on some of the ideals that you believe will help them become a better orgsnization. I know there has to be a liiiittle bit of ego involved here (there would be for me); but chalk it up, giggle at the walrus and stay involved with KCBS (for the experience/education alone if anything).

You're not crazy homie. You're spot on. In my few years of experience with social media, I have also noticed that outsourcing your strategy and engagement to someone who isn't equipped with the knowledge and cultural experience of the client and their team never ends well. Insourcing will be bad news for unfocused consultancies... and good news for consultancies that have drilled down and put 100% focus to their passion (big shout out to Jess Ostroff for helping Nao drill down to sports & entertainment x digital). It's time out for social media agencies that think they can work with any and everybody even if they don't anything about the client's industry and culture. Excellent post Jay.

Eye opening and inspiring post Jess. Educating your customers and the public in general is not only a way to build authority, but it shows that you really friggin' care! Love it.

Wow these numbers and estimated time commitments you speak of in this post are unbelievable. Social media management is NOT easy work. I agree with you Ray some of these folks need to get real.
