How will YOU create a World Wide Rave? Video and ebook

I write about strategies to turn fans into customers and customers into fans. I also share ways to use real-time strategies to spread ideas, influence minds, and build business.

In my new video, more than a year in the making, over 100 people from all seven continents contribute to show how people spread ideas and tell stories.

Here is a direct link to the video on YouTube.

How did you do THAT?

New free ebook about how the video was made.

As I was passing around the work-in-progress video that resulted in How will YOU create a World Wide Rave?, everyone had a question about some aspect of it. How did you come up with the name World Wide Rave? The music is cool—what is it? How did you get so many photos and videos from around the world? As I answered each question, I thought back on the more than one year that the video has been in the works and the more than 100 people from all seven continents who contributed to it.

I chronicle the making of the video in a new free ebook that you can download here How Will YOU Create a World Wide Rave? Making of the Video

What's so cool about ideas that spread is that people WANT to share.

Thanks to everybody who contributed. If you’d like to put a banner on your blog, please do! I'd be honored. You can point to this post.
