reminds me of a phrase I read yesterday – ‘Value over valuation’

Shradha: Revenue model is important, but sometimes it emerges later, not apparent in the beginning #Alchemix

Attendee: Pay attention to quality and credibility of social content (especially for corporates) #Alchemix

Infosys attendee: Pay attention to the user experience. Observations, anecdotoes, states, research. #Alchemix

Me: Suggestion to companies using social media – periodically archive your tweets as static pages on your Web site; good for SEO #Alchemix

Looking forward to the brainstorming/feedback session next! #Alchemix
