One Response to Do You FEAR Social Media?

  1. I was thinking yesterday – Professional Services firms and Consulting firms have a lot in common, in that we fear loosing control of conversations around our brands.

    For the founders or us non digital natives, its hard to switch from push messaging, owning our brand and telling our clients what our brand is. Slowly we’re learning to accept that brands are now formed by what the world is saying about us, not how we define our Logo and strap-lines.
