Orkut’s Retirement Overshadowed by Cupcakes and Soccer

by Jenny Sussin  |  July 9, 2014  |  1 Comment

When I was a wee intern, building out social media pages for the products and campaigns I supported without rhyme or reason, I built an Orkut page for both myself and one of the campaigns. For the particular campaign, I was trying to reach developers and coders particularly in India and so I was exposed […]

If Social Networks Were N’Sync

by Jenny Sussin  |  May 8, 2014  |  4 Comments

It’s somewhat obvious that not all of today’s social networks, or yesterday’s for that matter, are going to make it in the biz, so in today’s post, I want us all to make some social network predictions based on what has happened to the members of N’Sync.   Our five boy banders are: Justin Timberlake […]

A Run in Burger King’s Pantyhose

by Jenny Sussin  |  February 20, 2013  |  2 Comments

This morning I was talking to my colleague Gene Alvarez about embarrassing things that have happened in work environments. Stains on shirts, mismatching socks and as I explained to Gene, a run in my pantyhose. Men will never quite understand a run in the pantyhose. As women, we go through tens of pairs of pantyhose […]

The Social Media “Bro” Fest

by Jenny Sussin  |  December 11, 2012  |  4 Comments

I recognize even writing this blog post and the nature of my job alone makes me somewhat of a hypocrite for writing this, but the idea struck and I had to. So today I’m sitting at my desk and a particular group of sales guys walk by. I see them every day and every day […]

The Gap Between Social Strategy and Execution

by Jenny Sussin  |  October 10, 2012  |  Comments Off

There are two points of view that matter when it comes to social marketing execution: the vision of the strategist and the execution of the LOB professional.

Pac-man Thinks the Social CRM Market Looks Tasty

by Jenny Sussin  |  May 30, 2012  |  2 Comments

Remember Pac-Man? He used to eat all of those little dots until there were none left and he could run freely? Of course there were the ghosts but sometimes Pac-Man would eat a special little dot and then he could eat the ghosts too. This is the social CRM market. In the past two weeks […]

If I hear the word “social” one more time…

by Jenny Sussin  |  May 7, 2012  |  9 Comments

Maybe I am being dramatic, but if I hear the word “social” one more time today I am going to throw my laptop at the window. “Social” has unfortunately become a buzzword. I would say this has happened over the last year or so (does anyone agree, disagree?) It’s driving me bananas (not a Denny’s […]
