    Hey Paul,

    It was great chatting with you. Thanks for the opportunity.

    While my ideas may be a bit radical, there is absolutely no doubt that the rules have changed. If technology marketers want to be on the first page of the Google search results, or make it into the news headlines, or hit people’s RSS alerts, they must unlearn what they have learned about marketing and PR in the past and adopt the new rules.

    Cheers, David

    Hi Paul
    I have just read David Meerman Scott’s new book and was pleasantly impressed with the wide-ranging discussion which you conducted with him. This highly interesting discussion is a real door-opener to David’s ideas – which brought me to your superb blog.

    A static website on its own is not sufficient or effective. The missing element is feedback from the reader. Websites have to be supplemented with a small array of social marketing tools.

    I have a small consultancy. David’s approach is cost effective and deserves a serious try-out.

    Many thanks!
    Sincerely, Albert van Niekerk, Somerset West, South Africa
