Social Media is only one tool
in your marketing toolbox.
Hiring tech savvy college interns to manage your social networks is NOT a good strategy!
(The S.M. stragegy should come from the top.)

To have a succesful social media program, you need to...
Intergrate S.M. with your other marketing efforts
-Add phrases like "find us on Facebook, Twitter, etc." on
buisness cards, print advertising, TV commercials, etc.
(More on this in the upcoming "Best Practices" class.)
Understand that S.M is no ALWAYS a vehicle for selling, but a tool to expand brand awareness, customer relations, transparency, value delivery, etc.
Fish where the fish are!
Media consumption has experienced a drastic shift from
"Outbound Marketing" to "Inbound Marketing".
"People don't want to be sold, but they want to buy!"
What the heck is "Inbound Marketing"!?
Inbound marketing is a marketing strategy that focuses on getting found by customers. This sense is related to relationship marketing and Seth Godin's idea of permission marketing. David Meerman Scott recommends that marketers "earn their way in" (via publishing helpful information on a blog etc.) in contrast to outbound marketing where they used to have to "buy, beg, or bug their way in" (via paid advertisements, issuing press releases in the hope they get picked up by the trade press, or paying commissioned sales people, respectively). Brian Halligan, cofounder and CEO of HubSpot, claims he coined the usage of the term in this sense.
Antonym for this usage: Traditional marketing (outbound marketing) is a marketing strategy that focuses on finding customers by building brand awareness through advertising and promotion. In contrast to "permission marketing," a pejorative term for this type of marketing is "interruption marketing."
The term Web 2.0 is associated with web applications that facilitate participatory information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators (prosumers) of user-generated content in a virtual community, in contrast to websites where users (consumers) are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for them. Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites, blogs, wikis, video sharing sites, hosted services, web applications, mashups and folksonomies.
In other words...
Web 2.0 is a term to describe the evolution of online media consumption to reflect a new era. Pre "Web 2.0", most online interaction was static and creator based. In this new era, time spent online is much more dynamic, interactive and user based. Basically, you control your experience...To an extent.
Does Web 2.0 sound like more fun?
Unfortunately, it's not that easy...
(Effective social marketing takes continued time and resources.)
Take it or leave it tip:
Make sure everyone in your organization understand that YOU support (and even encourage) their participation in social networks.
Set expectations on conduct and encourage and possibly reward employees for engagement. They may be your best social media brand ambassadors...
If you loose your email or phone contacts, you can still find them on via social media...
