Social Media for business

I just got back from this mornings seminars at the IncentiveWorks conference and had the opportunity to hear Phil Barrett speak about Social Media and how it has evolved and how it will progress over the next 10 years. Interesting stuff. (He used a different type of video by commoncraft)

It was also amazing to see just how easy it is for small business to harness the power of web 2.0 and use it to promote their product or service.Take Facebook


, for example. 75% it’s users check their account daily with the average visit time of 29.8 minutes. That is ludicrous compared to every other website in the world. Think about how this can help small business.  


Videoblogging,  RSS, feed aggregator, social bookmarking, and the social media release  were amongst the other topics discussed. This truly is a time where your business can be everywhere all at once, but it is tedious and time consuming. My question is should Marketers tap into every form of social media possible, or should they select a few to go after?
