With Twitter!! In fact we even won our first engagement over Twitter – so watch out DellOutlet we are gaining on you fast! It’s an odd dynamic I see in play today - in today’s ever connected environment marketers tell me they feel even more removed from direct customer interaction. As a former sale person, I used to schedule “ride-along” time with my sales team just to get out on sales calls and hear how we position ourselves in front of the customer, how that message lands on the customer and more importantly what the customer is saying in reaction to how we are positioned.

Think how Israel has developed a digital culture and realise that Turkey could still be ably placed to do the same. In 2006 there were 49.7m users, driven mainly by the youth culture.
