Ask lots of questions
Market the conversations, not the social media
Don't forget the individual ask!

"Be a good social media citizen.

Play well with others and share the spotlight — comment on other blogs and Facebook pages, reply and DM on Twitter, retweet others’ blog posts, give link love on your blog, share posts on Facebook, thank those who help you.

Focus on giving, not taking and you’ll get some good social media karma."

- be different! Everyone is experimenting. (they pay attention) http://www.10e20.com/blog/2009/10/21/the-art-of-the-social-landing-page/ http://ht.ly/1Rg9f
