Interesting comments over at Alan Weiss’s Contranian Consulting site with lots of discussion following a controversial post. Alan is the consultant’s consultant, but he really hit a nerve with this one.
Reading the comments is a great example of web2.0 and social media in action! The comments start with Seth Godin jumping in first and then Yvonne DiVitaÂ of LipstickingÂ making some terrific points…Â Mack CollierÂ comment #42 and Robert ScobleÂ comments 46 & 47 also had their say.
What got them going?Â Alan claims:
With rare exception, consultants arenâ€™t going to meet key corporate buyers online…
…itâ€™s a lousy place to find and meet clients.
Of course I couldn’t keep my hands off the keyboard and had to put my two cents in there with a prediction.
…And I predict that by next year at this time, your corporate executive buyers will be using their mobile phone PDAs, not only to check emails, but to check/send Twitters, read/comment on blogs and trade text messages with their consultants. If they aren’t already!
