From the intro: "With many individuals finding great success with social media (and as an aside, a basic understanding of search engine optimization), they immediately consider themselves social media marketers and consultants (as well as seasoned SEOs) and offer to sell their promotional services. What skills, though, do successful social media marketers have that put these individuals above the average (or addicted) social media user, and better yet, above the traditional marketer?"Excellent question -- one that many "social media marketers" need to think about seriously. The answer, in some cases, I think is "nothing".

A great article with lots of good info. Well worth the read. And who doesn’t love a collection of quotes? It’s almost as good as a list :)

This is killer, Tamar!  Going to print it out to read it all, and distribute within our SM team - great broad set of viewpoints. What we need to round out and help define such a young profession :-)
