Look Who’s Talking

social_bum_rush.jpgWhat happens when you give 100 of the world’s leading marketing professionals, writers, thinkers, innovators and bloggers a book title and an invitation to write about that topic in 400 words or less?The Age of Conversation happens. The collaborative project organized by Gavin Heaton and Drew McLellan started as an off-hand comment, grew into an e-book and ultimately a printed book, The Age of Conversation takes the individual musings of 100+ authors from all over the world, many of whom have no connection other than shared belief in the power of social media, and turns them into a collection that overflows with creativity and insight.

And just for today, March 29, The Age of Conversation is more than a book. It’s part of a social media experiment. And you can be part of it.

Join the Age of Conversation Bum Rush on March 29thThe idea is to generate as much web and Amazon activity as possible on a single day, both to drive the book’s ranking on Amazon upward and to create momentum for the book’s sequel (more about this in a moment…hint: I’m involved). If you use this link to buy it today, you’ll create a win-win-win:

  1. You get a terrific social media and marketing book.
  2. The book’s editors and contributors get the thrill of seeing it sail up the Amazon charts.
  3. Variety, the Children’s Charity receives all proceeds, including those from the book’s Amazon affiliate link.

The momentum’s important, because editors Drew McLellan and Gavin Heaton are at it again. And this time I’ll be one of the contributors! I’m excited to be one of the 275 marketing and social media writers and bloggers selected to be part of The Age of Conversation ’08, now in the works. I hope you’ll click on some of the other names in the list to see the diversity of backgrounds and experiences represented:
