I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a big fan of Erik Qualman. He has masterfully built a brand from scratch that could be a case study on how to become a world-renowned expert. I’m also not ashamed to admit that I’ve eagerly anticipated the release of his yearly “Social Media Revolution” videos ever since I was blown away by the first one. It’s not an Episode-VII level of anticipation, but I do look forward to them.
When Erik Qualman from Socialnomics put out the first Social Media Revolution video, it blew my mind. The information, the styling, the quality – it was a revelation. Subsequent long and short variations as well as refreshes were strong but not quite what I had seen in the first one.
It’s no surprise that the latest version was still somewhat of a disappointment. Don’t get me wrong – it’s amazing – but it’s amazing in a ‘Godfather 3’ way. Godfather 3 was a good film, but not near the quality and emotional impact that viewers felt from the first 2 movies.
