Via Series: Social Media Agencies Reveal 7 Aggressive Strategies

Do you play the lottery?

Well, the people who do, generally think of the lottery as a sudden wealth generator. It’s not. For something to be a generator, it’s got to yield wide spread production.

Under that premise, the greatest sudden wealth generator is disruptive technology. But it’s also the greatest sudden poverty generator.


Whether that disruptive technology is a sudden change in political technology such as a regime change that left the Romanov’s executed, or it’s mega pixel digital cameras that killed Kodak, it created rapid and wide spread changing of hands of power and wealth. All the power was transferred to the Bolsheviks and Flickr. When Dave Winer invented his disruptive technology: the web-log, and Steve Jobs invented the iPad, monolithic behemoths toppled like your Jenga tower at the end of a Martini party. The WSJ got bought by a Mexican National and the timber industry, printing and book publishing world went bankrupt. Oh, right, the last one didn’t happen yet (fyi, every printed book in the world is going to be converted into an ebook or ibook, that was Steve’s death bed vision).


Let’s rewind time a bit to the here and now, arguably, the biggest disruptive technology of today is social media.

This is a world where Jr High students can criticize politicians and Harvard professors publically, and it can go viral. This is a world where a food giant employee can stand on a food service crate and cause an international boycott. But this is also a world where a niche company or a small mom-and-pop can become a global brand overnight, granted you can scale that quickly.

So, what’s the one thing that all those who came out winners from the turbulence of disruptive technology had? The Bolsheviks had the vision of Trotsky. Flickr had the vision of Stewart Butterfield and Caterina Fake, The man who made the WSJ eventually sell to Carlos, Dave Winer, had the vision of Dave Winer.


Now, since communicating with your target market and audience through traditional static media advertising isn’t working, if you’re determined to come out on top of this new tsunami called social media, who’s vision do you have? If the people you rely on to prognosticate the future of how your business will interact and communicate with your customers aren’t visionaries, It might be a good time to call a few of them in. They are the most influential and well connected people in Facebook, Twitter, Quora, Pinterest and AnswerMania.

    Based on what methodology, algorithm or formula? I don’t mean to quibble, but I see these “top” lists all the time, and what they really mean is “the top 50 or 100 among those I’m aware of based on my own purely subjective ranking.”

    obviously like your web site but you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your
    posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome
    to tell the truth on the other hand I’ll certainly come again again.

  • Nick Wreden

    This is a great list, and I sincerely appreciate all the hard work and time that went into its compilation. However, I want to echo the earlier thought that this is waaaaaaay to US centric to be called a global listing. Where are the European, African, Indian, Australian/NZ and (yes, I am biased here because I’m based in Asia) the Asian and especially the Chinese experts? May I suggest that next year you complement this excellent list with some experts from other regions around the world?

    Thanks large for putting me in such good company.

  • Malko Ebers

    Keep your ear close to your customer, listen and study how they adopt your technology-will social media help you to identify and adjust to trends that could disrupt your business? If you run a horse carriage business and Mr. Daimler invents the car-would social media have helped you avoid bankruptcy?! Just another form of ‘creative destruction’ as Schumpeter phrased it?

  • Janet Pelly

    Liked the article, but your claim that this is a global list is straight out ridiculous. If you wanna talk global, make more of an effort to step out of the US #fail
