Excellent insights. It's a pity that there is such a large disparity of online marketing statistics. Some are wildly off base. I have yet to see more than a couple of research companies land in the same ballpark. This disparity in outcomes will only add to the confusion about what's really happening on the retail Internet.

I agree with this article Jeff, I'm always a little shocked when a influencer - such as yourself; actually acknowledges my invite or question. Like the article states; you do need some commonality or something they can relate to yourself.
Ali Anani's curator insight, August 17, 2013 12:14 AM

Influencers are not sleeping ones if you reach them
