Joan Damico runs a blog called the Integrated Marcom blog and a newsletter called the Integrated Marcom Minute. Her work with her clients spans everything from writing copy to helping them experiment with Web 2.0 tools.
Joan was also one of the first responders to our Web 2.0 tools survey, and her experience with her clients shows that they are aggressively looking for ways to leverage Web 2.0 tools. Pay special attention to the discussion around doing an offline event like (dare I say) a trade show versus launching a blog. Interesting stuff!
