Why Social Media Can't Stand Alone

In our unending quest to master all of the aspects of social media — so we can, at the very least, keep in touch with our kids and our friends, much less our clients — sometimes the classic approach gets overlooked.

A new study by the Inter-Company Marketing Group helps to remind us that while social media tools such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter are important in attracting and enticing a new generation of clients, you’re still going to have to get some old-fashioned face time if you want to succeed.
