Ouvrir has a few digital heroes, and some not so digital. Seth Godin, Stephen Covey, Neil Rackham, Joseph Jaffe to name a few. One of our favourite truly social superstars is Erik Qualman of Socialnomics fame. Ouvrir follows the Socialnomics YouTube channel and we loved this quick check-in from Erik, posted yesterday. It is a simple message that does what it says on the tin.
If we are to succeed in social media, as in so many things, we must first fail. More importantly - we must fail forward, fail fast and fail better - in a spirit of good humour and collaboration. We think it's a good message so we're sharing the love.
