Goldstein's presentation: "Social media and high tech fail without high touch: How to turn the 7 expectations of socia-media users into dollars!"

"My presentation closes the workshop to bring participants back to terra firma," Goldstein says. "I'm as excited about social media as anyone else, but I also know that people make sales not computer mouses. Social media venues are means to an end--engaging people to close 'the sale'--not ends in themselves. When web sites first became "the thing," people rushed to get online--and mistakenly thought that was all they had to do to create a successful effort. The same giddiness has accompanied social media venues, with the same discouraging results. It takes time, creativity, and commitment to use social media effectively. I share my take on the 7 ways to do that."
