If the big-data evangelists of Silicon Valley really want to “understand the world” they need to capture both its (big) quantities and its (thick) qualities.

In this article, I'll examine the art of thinking sideways for one of the slightly more tricky marketing clients I've worked with. I hope that this will provide an insight for fellow content marketers and SEOs in similar scenarios.

Introduction

Ray focusses on holistic cross-media e-strategies and delivering projects to clients with a broad scope on integration of e-Commerce and ROI focussed Social Business.

Quote:

..93% of all corporate social media activities do not result in any return on investment. Too long, companies have followed mere enthusiasm in social media pursuing quantities in ‘followers’ and ‘fans’ without any ROI. It is time to refocus, it is time to explore the 7% before the social media bubble explodes..’…that is typically how Ray van den Bel starts his seminars and lectures.

Ray has a very different approach towards social media and corporate dynamics than other internet strategists. Over the years Ray has developed the ‘ETOS’ model for social CRM’©, the ON Network Model© en the E-ROI Model© and has incorporated these lessons for several multinationals and his own social media network which he founded in 2007. By 2009, the influential online magazine web 2.0 Mashable.com named this network as one of the 10 major social networks for 'Professionals and Job Search'. Quickly he became known worldwide as one of the leading strategists and speakers in the field of social media, web 2.0 resources, strategy and communication.

Ray van den Bel's translated his personal experiences and vision in his the social networks het created, based upon the real value of Web 2.0 In his words:

'... Online tools & resources should always serve genuine, real life business, based on a solid ROI. They should never be based on theory and enthusiasm only ..’
