Quotes from the Conversational Marketing Summit NYC

How to take advantage of the social web – “Let one hundred flowers bloom” – Andy Markowitz, Kraft Foods summarizing from a talk by Guy Kawasaki

“Your brand is what people say about you when you’re not in the room” – Hulu CEO Jason Kilar (also a pretty widely quoted saying with no attribution.)

“Like the movie Soylent Green, the social web is made of people!” – Steve Rubel

“I’m so tired of Twitter.  I’m looking for something new.”  Unknown.  Heard this in the hall and it stuck in my mind.

“Too many advertisers buy impressions instead of making impressions.”  Matt Freeman of GoFish.

“I don’t know about all this technical jargon” – Rich Silverstein when asked in the hall about RSS.

“Find a good partner” – Andy Lark when talking about things he’s learned about social media.

Was really proud to be a part of the CM Summit and the entire Federated Media team that made it happen.  The summit content was strong and as Michael Cohn pointed out the speakers really discussed the issue at hand rather than pitching vaguely related ideas that related to their product.  The best content happened in the hallway.  Lots of passionate conversations occurring all around the sessions and I have already seen a number of these conversations continue past the summit.

Great week.  Can’t wait for the next one in San Fran this fall… Interested in speaking or attending, click here.

    I was personally surprised to learn that “Arrested Development” was the top ranked show on Hulu. I guess early adopters have good taste. Let’s a brand to underwrite and bring the best show ever back!
