It looks like I'm going to be on a panel called "Harnessing the Buzz Power of Blogs" at the 2005 Direct Marketing Association (DMA) Conference in Atlanta. The theme for this year appears to be "Learn to listen to your customer."

My panel doesn't appear on the list yet, but I'm sure that'll be fixed before too long. Anyway, if you had the chance to talk to a room full of folks at such a conference, what would you tell them about blogs?

I have many ideas, of course, but would love to know what others think before I start putting a presentation together.

Welcome to my hometown. Will you be hanging out in Atlanta for any length of time, or just for the day of your panel?

I would suggest some compare/contrast to existing "internet marketing" techniques.... otherwise known as advantages of blogs/RSS over newsletters/email.

Don't tell the DMA anything, they already control major portions of the media in my life, I don't need them there also! :)

In a word: datablogging+marketing
