The A-Team for Social Media?

by David Spark on March 5, 2009

socialmedia.bizThis week I officially joined forces with, J.D. Lasica’s long running blog about social media. He’s opened up his blog to include other social media luminaries and I’m honored that he selected me to participate. J.D. invited us all in as we each provide a different expertise when developing a comprehensive social media strategy.

As J.D. explained, “The site will serve both as a daily publication providing news and analysis of Web 2.0 trends and as a means of gaining access to some of the most recognized names in social media for consulting.”

Those members joining me to provide insight on include:

  • Chris Abraham, co-founder and principal of Abraham Harrison, an international consulting group that specializes in online word-of-mouth/conversation marketing and online business and technology strategy advising.
  • Deltina Hay, owner of Dalton Publishing, founder of the social media Website service and author of the upcoming book, “A Survival Guide to Social Media and Web 2.0 Optimization: Strategies, Tactics, and Tools for Succeeding in the Social Web.”
  • Christopher S. Rollyson, a pioneer in corporate innovation, strategy and transformation for 20 years who has had a leading role in launching such game-changing offerings as Java with Sun and e-business strategy with PricewaterhouseCoopers Management Consulting.
  • Ayelet Noff, founder of Blonde 2.0, a consulting firm specializing in helping brands understand how to use social media tools such as blogs, social networks and social software to launch conversational marketing campaigns and create brand awareness.
  • J.D. Lasica, one of the earliest social media strategists, who founded, the first video hosting site, wrote the book “Darknet” about emerging media and was one of the first 50,000 bloggers on the planet.
  • Joanna Lord, co-founder and CMO of, a resource for online job searchers and an expert in online marketing and social networking.

Could this be the A-Team of social media? If so, I’d like to be the guy who sticks the unlit cigar in his mouth (only slightly Freudian) and says, “I love it when a plan comes together.”
