Do you know a lot about social media? If so, I’ve got an idea about how to figure out what’s next – turn today’s cliches around and consider the possibilities.
Think local, act global. To scale initiatives, you’ll need to deliver with 1-1 relevance at a level that has 1-many impact.

Put business goals last. Thinking about maximizing profitability and how much money you’ll squeeze out of your relationships will kill creativity off the bat before any initiative gets started.
Just some thoughts – what other phrases do you hear repeatedly that may drive insight when viewed in reverse?
