The Ultimate Social Media Quote

As I go dark for a few days to enjoy some family (and snow shoveling) time, I wanted to give you this quintessential social media quote – which I believe is suitable for cutting out and taping to your desk. Think about it as you consider your plan for 2009, which will be the Year of Marketing as Conversation.

I found it the other day in The Week magazine (which is a fantastic publication – it’s like a printed RSS feed of other magazine’s best stuff).

Men are born with two eyes, but only one tongue, in order that they should see twice as much as they say.

Thanks for all of your support of me and Convince & Convert this year. I adore your kind words, comments, retweets, consulting and speaking gigs, and conviviality and fellowship.

Despite the economy, I’ve never been more excited about a new year. The times they are a changing. I can feel it, and I hope to help you break out of the old conventions and norms and succeed with dramatic intensity in 2009.

Best wishes for a joyous and safe holiday.

    I’ve never heard it this way actually, I’ve always heard it that we have two ears and one mouth, so we should listen twice as much as we speak.

    meh, you end up in the same place. :)

    Merry Christmas!

    I just found a great company that builds websites for info products. To keep your costs low, they’ll mentor you on how to create your site, design a marketing funnel (one of the guys works in Hollywood and makes really slick videos), and the other guy programmed Myspace. If you’re looking to have professional web design for your small business and not waste any time or money then check their site out.
