Great Facebook breakthrough posted at Radical Trust about "Music Soup by Jen Gould".
People always ask me "who has really hit it big through Facebook and typically my response has been that Facebook has been an effective bullet in the grassroots shotgun but never the whole howitzer. In this case, a children's CD is pure social network breakthrough and I'm happy to evangelize about it.
"Music Soup" is a great story of how an innocent outreach to 150 people on Facebook turns into grassroots sales of 6,000 CDs, all through word of mouth, turns into a 15,000 CD order turns into Juno nomination (Canada's version of the Grammies).
Time and time again, I'm overwhelmed by how a small group of gifted people, acting passionately and zealously can change the fate of businesses and people. C'mon, Kawasaki, you know you want to believe in these influencers and not the same trumped up and flawed arguments for talking to the entire marketplace.
To purchase the 17 songs of children's limericks, rhymes and smart verse, go here. For you kiddie iPoders, at least get the classic single "The Lemonade Song".
