Kamran nailed it. In fact the challenges and the questions you both pointed out is the main reason I built awesomize.me and I hope it will help the businesses to overcome that by using us as their first stop on the web before any connection.

Here is my 2cents on this whole internet -> search Engine -> Social media things and my rational on why there is a need for a portal to provide a quick and intelligent decision for both the consumer and the companies about their online connections.

I think we all know that social networking blunders create buzz around a brand. Even negative attention drives revenue. However, I find more success in effectively utilizing consumer segmentation It allows us to target consumers with more germane information. In addition, given that sponsored social ads are something of an interruption to the natural flow of online interaction, the value of those ads is in how well they target the appropriate consumer segment. The network matters, but knowing who you're targeting in that network is paramount to the success of your brand and your ROI.

I agree with the answers here, but wanted to add that in my experience the companies that are most successful in using social media to drive revenue are the ones that understand the "social" aspect of social media. Social media is about relationship. Most people will not "jump on your bandwagon" just because you have a Twitter account. They respond to companies that engage and build relationships with customers, creating content that is useful even if it's not "selling" the company or product, etc. Creating content that people will want to share and pass on to their friends and family requ (more)

Jack, If you learn and end up using the right social media channels, absolutely! You just need to know which one is the most appropriate channel for your business? why? and how to use it? It’s really important to know HOW to use the channel. Once, you learn that, the revenue will start flowing in. They will be intangible for start, but you will soon be able to track them.

Oftentimes, marketers make the mistake of presenting their business propositions first. Social networking media, as the name implies, are primary for socializing. The message therefore is socialize first, and your presentations second. This way you win voluntary prospects who feel that you have genuine interest in them. Once the loyalty is built, you see the sales following.

You shouldn't 'feel' you should know. At http://www.bossrocket.com we tie our social media metrics to our revenues in our cash flow statements. Though we are only five months old so far here are our results:

Twitter: slight
Facebook: not yet
Linkedin: not yet
Email: lots

If you need help and advice setting this sort of thing up let me know.
