Attestation Update – A&A for CPAs

Technical stuff for CPAs providing attestation services

Still wondering if Social Media is a big deal? Want to be in business 5 years from now?

with one comment

Most sobering thought from the video:

  • The ROI of social media is your business will still exist in 5 years

Some stats on social media from Erik Qualman at Social Media Revolution 2011:

A few other highlights that caught my eye:

Cutsie lines:

  • Kindergartners are learning on iPads not chalkboards
  • Social gamers will buy $6 billion in virtual goods by 2013 – moviegoers by only $2.5 billion of real goods

Aha for me:

  • YouTube is a second most popular search engine. 

My experience:

I have put a few cartoons up on YouTube. You can find them on my Once Upon Internal Control blog.  I’m not exactly sure how to read the stats at YouTube, but as best I can tell 58% of the people who have looked at my cartoons found them from YouTube directly while only 34% of the viewers came from my own blogs.  From Google? 2%.

Hat tip – Rick Telberg at CPA Trendlines.
