    Jeff – grateful for you sending me the link. My life is built around social media for business, predominantly in the B-to-B space. Jeremiah Owyang at Altimiter is one of the experts helping to drive best practices. His “Roadmap: Integrating Social Technologies with your Corporate Website” (Slides) (#4.) has some exceptional case examples of how to miss the boat (Outback Steakhouse) and those progressing toward integrated online solutions (H & R Block, Pepsi Refresh Project, Huffington Post, Vitamin Water). the focus on slow and steady improvement, having a clear roadmap and clear kpi’s are the critical message. Note: for those anticipating a free ride to success without appropriate investment: You won’t climb this ladder. Deliberate integration of social properties with your corporate (websites) is a patient exercise.
