Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Best Conversations of 2008

« Thank you | Main | Happy New Year 2009 »


@Steven - what and why are a good starting point. Glad I could be of service.

@Sampad - thank you for reading and participating. Healthy and prosperous new year to you as well.

@Paula - good to have you here. Many of these ideas were born as unstructured thought. However, I marvel at the consistency achieved during the year as I look back. The power of focus.

@Derek - it's the proverbial wanting to have the cake and eat it, too. It will be indeed interesting to see the direction all this takes.

Great list and I totally agree that 2009 will have to be the year of execution. More success stories around social media as a marketing channel are needed for them to "go mainstream" but as the reach deepens, the opportunities increase.

Of course, with that comes the risk of dopey "marketers" abusing these channels and turning users off. My main rule to clients is: Be Cool.

Great list! Those were definitely some of the best conversations. Hopefully 2009 will even be better.
