Image via WikipediaI do like the BBC program Bottom Line. You get CxO level people talking shop. Really valuable insights.
This week we've got a session on New media. New media seems to include search - is that really "new" any more?
On the program we've got Alex Cheatle, the CEO of Ten Group, Jasmine Montgomery, co-founder of Seven Brands and Robin Wight the president of Engine.
In the show Jasmine Montgomery suggests brands haven't worked out how to monetise new media like Facebook. I can think of quite a few brands who do very well - but perhaps they're the exception that prove the rule.
Poor old Evan Davis hadn't seen the Old Spice ad. There you go; we found someone who's not fed up of it yet :)
I was also impressed at how Engine Group's Robin Wight had a simple case of Samsung blogger outreach impress the other contributors as an example of clever, cutting edge, new media.
