We are still working on understanding how do we create wealth.
Basically we can do that two ways: we create new markets or we reduce costs. In both cases, our net profit incresases, allowing us to feed that back into the economy: growing and spending: we then create new jobs, demand new services, pay more taxes. Everybody wins.
We create new markets by finding uncontested market space: in our own industry, in the industry next door, in an industry that is in itself being created.
Let's see a new market: twitter
I just succumbed to twitter, (http://twitter.com/aliciacastillo) thanks to John Kremer, a marketing guru for authors. As I am not to wait until my books sell, I sought his expertise. From twitter, I moved to tweetlater and to postlater and to tweet analytics.... I envisioned there would be at least a hundred companies promoting the better use of tweets.
Chris Pirillo, a well known geek has posted several youtubes on tweets...
Alex Mandossian, another marketing guru, started a group to maximize the use of tweeter, for only $30/ month. I am sure they will be sharing best practices, secrets and so forth.
I laughed at twitter first but I am curious to see where this all would go to.
and well, yes, I tweet, I use tweetlater and I have a life.
I couldn't tweet without tweet later. http://snipr.com/k6rzf
