All would agree that the digital, always-connected world in which we find ourselves today has radically changed how we learn, connect, and communicate.

Some would argue that the new digital reality is a regression of sorts with just more distraction, more noise, more tweets, and more selfies, and just more, more, more.

Others would praise the fast-paced nature of the new digital economy created by smartphones and social platforms. I, of course, would be in this camp but questions that are often asked are:

  • What difference does social and mobile make for businesses?
  • Should all companies be on social media platforms?
  • Should a company’s executive team be on Twitter?
  • What about blogging?
  • Should a company approach digital and social marketing differently if they are selling their product or services in a B2B (business to business) context verses B2C (business to consumer)?

To provide definitive and experienced insight to these questions, we’ve asked Jim Tobin (LinkedIn, Twitter), President of Ignite Social Media for a live Q/A session on the next #MobileChat.

Jim is also author of the 2013 book, Earn It. Don’t Buy It: The CMO’s Guide to Social Media Marketing in a Post Facebook World, and the 2008 book, Social Media is a Cocktail Party: Why You Already Know the Rules of Social Media Marketing.

If anyone has real-world experience strategizing and executing social media for both small and large businesses, Jim Tobin is the guy.

Join us Wednesday, July 30th, from 9-10pm ET via #MobileChat on Twitter as we get down in the social media trenches with Jim and the Ignite Social Media team about what really works in the new digital economy.
