This week I’ve seen more than one blog talk about how Twitter is growing by over 1000%. 1000% growth! Maybe it’s good that Evan Williams was called to the White House to talk about the economy. It could be my twitter competition drawing in all their new users. 🙂
The internet is the future of green marketing and social media is the future of everything marketing. As I’ve said before, social media already is and will continue to be a compelling marketing channel for the green economy.
People and companies in the green movement tend to have a low tolerance for “In-Your-Face” advertising, though, and a vocal and active reaction when it happens: not only do they ignore it but they tend to give it the stiff-arm and talk about it. I say:
Good. Whether it’s Malcolm Gladwell talking about his theories in the Tipping Point or MaxGladwell.com talking about the nexus between green marketing and social media, the evidence is there that word-of-mouth marketing has power and that word-of-mouth is fast becoming “Word-of-Web.
