How Should I Read This? Is This the Future of Social Media Marketing?

Dear Brain solis, (Yes, notice the typo. I’m a smart guy, but I haven’t flirted with changing my name yet.)

XXXX provides holistic and synergistic blend of traditional online marketing and emerging social media based buzz marketing (wait, is that one sentence? And, is this a new category, Emerging Social Media Based Buzz Marketing?!), to help its clients derive maximum value from their marketing dollars.

For example, our understanding of the key words for any client will be useful not only in SEO and SEM but also in Social Media based marketing campaigns, as we can weave in same key words for better impact and enhanced SEO ranking.

Similarly XXXX’s Buzz Tracker, can dig (surprised it wasn’t “DIGG”) into various online conversations and provide a clear understanding of the available opportunities, any warning signs, key influencers and how the target audience perceives a client. The insights thus derived can help us design more effective buzz generation campaigns, resulting in enhanced brand image and revenue (where or where do I sign up!?).

Hence XXXX is not only a one-stop-shop for all your online marketing needs, but it also offers you unmatched ROI.

Let me know if this interests you. (Um, synergistic’ly, along with my Social Media Buzzin Holistic partners in crime, I don’t think so. K Thx. Bai.)

Connect with me on Twitter, Jaiku, LinkedIn, Pownce, Plaxo, FriendFeed, or Facebook.

    Clearly the Force can be used for evil or for good. The Dark Side is strong here. Interesting to see how Twitter, Wiki, Digg, and other Social Media platforms use a distributed, self-organizing system to fight spam. Together we can defeat the Sith Lords of SMM spam. Oh yeah can I stick a nice link and some rich anchor text for my China social applications blog while I’m at it? :)
