Welcome to episode #361 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. Brands are pushing hard on social media. All too often, they will complain that social media doesn't work or Facebook advertising doesn't work. In short, they're missing the point. Social media is not a catch-all for marketing and advertising that will cure what ails the aching brand. Nobody knows this better than the founder and CEO of Monetate, David Brussin. Monetate is an amazing marketing optimization platform that has taken the e-commerce world by storm. I've been friends with Brussin since the early days of the company. They've been releasing their EQ Report (E-commrce Quarterly) for some time. The latest edition was recently published and, along with Jay Baer (Convince And Convert and the author of the soon-to-be-published book, Youtility), I was asked to editorialize on the data.
