Nokia – Conversation is the new Conversion

Arto Joensuu – Head Of Digital Marketing, Middle East and Africa at Nokia, posted this great presentation on his blog.

What I find most interesting:
– Conversation is the new conversion metric.
– Each company should redefine digital marketing and increase the importance of concept development.

Is Social Ad the next generation of online advertising?

As Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites entered our lives, something has changed. Seth Goldstein (Co-Founder of SocialMedia.com) is convinced that Social ads became Ads 2.0.

This presents advertisers with a huge challenge, but also an opportunity to engage online audiences in new and compelling ways. Transparency, responsiveness, genuine dialogue, and ethics take center stage in the battle for revenue.

Seth Goldstein`s presentation from 2010 IAB Annual Leadership Meeting can be seen on SlideShare.
