Quotes

--  The era of early adopters is over, and now every business must
    consider whether or not to engage in new media. New Media Nouveaux will
    help executives grasp how and why social media strategies smartly deployed
    can benefit their business.
--  The social networking revolution is moving quickly. By recognizing the
    best new media techniques, businesses can better manage relationships with
    their communities through proper social media outreach initiatives.
--  New Media Nouveaux will be the premier social media event in
    Washington this year.
--  New Media is not rocket science, but with so many types of new media,
    strategies and resources, it can be difficult to find the right method for
    differentiation of any message.  New Media Nouveaux cuts through the
    clutter.
    

Attributed to Toby Bloomberg, CEO of Bloomberg Marketing

--  Social media turns a static Internet presence into an exchange of
    thoughts, information and ideas. Through this emotional engagement,
    stronger relationships are built forming the basis of customer acquisition
    and the reinforcement of customer retention.
--  The flip side of social media is how customers relate to brands. Not
    only can they change carefully crafted marketing messages but through
    blogs, podcasts and vlogs they can convey a new image about your
    product/service to thousands of their closets friends and a few strangers
    too.
--  Social media opens the doors for businesses to listen to the
    unfiltered voices of their customers. Savvy companies will join those
    conversations creating new opportunities for idea exchange.
    
Attributed to Geoff Livingston, CEO of Livingston Communications
--  Social media strategies greatly benefit businesses like General
    Motors, Coca-Cola, and Southwest. Now local businesses are looking to
    understand social media.
--  The most important aspect of social media for businesses remains a
    change in ethos: Instead of pushing outbound, participation within
    communities drives marketing.
