awesomize.me Poised To Make Social Media To Finally Work for B2B

With the rapid growth of social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and now Google+, businesses around the world have incorporated the use of such platforms as part of their marketing and branding strategy. While there is no dispute that these platforms offer exposure to a broad population, it has been a struggle for these platforms to demonstrate a compelling ROI to the business community. The  GM decision to pull out their Ads from Facebook that was initially reported by the Wall Street Journal  is  just one of the recent example.

According to the latest survey by Hubspot, only LinkedIn has demonstrated the ability to convert traffic to leads for the B2B community that is on par with “traditional” marketing avenues by demonstrating a 2.6% conversion rate. Obviously, given the size of the population on these sites, the ability to effectively convert the visitors to actual leads could be a powerful business tool! Read more of this post

Do You Think Your Business Idea Is A Head of It’s Time?


A few month after Yurie systems, my first startup employer was sold to Lucent for a cool $1.23 B, as employee number 8th, I cashed out my stock options and lunched telezoo.com back in 1999.  telezoo.com was the first B2B social networking site on the web years before myspace and Facebook of the world. I remember I ended up hiring  at least ten sales guy and wasted  a third of our series A funding, a cool $1 m on advertising to get the attention of the companies.  We rarely managed to get 300 companies to utilize the site.

Getting the companies to leverage the power of social networking to market their solution offerings and get engaged with their existing and potential clients online was something totally unheard of and premature.  Many of them even thought I was on dope 🙂 We had a good run with it till 2004 though.
