“Erik Qualman made such a positive difference at Nokia’s Global Sales and Marketing Meeting. Invited to speak about the ever-changing digital environment, Erik brought a holistic view on the topic; he gave numerous examples of how it is affecting people and importantly, how companies must react to address the opportunities the change represents. His personal style and the content of his presentation opened up for great discussion and the subsequent panel session where Erik was joined by members of Nokia’s Executive Management, was very open and action-orientated. I am convinced Erik can contribute to driving change towards embracing and utilizing digital and mobile media with any size of company in literally any business. He certainly contributed to the awareness and importance of the plans of transition Nokia has undertaken.” — Bjorn Ulfberg, Vice President of Marketing | Nokia

    hi there
    I am doing a thesis on social networking and its impact on education and was wondering if this book is available in PDF for instant download? I would love to have a copy as I believe, from all the reviews etc that I have seen that the information your book contains might serve to support and substantiate some of the claims and ideas I am trying to make

    1. equalman

      Thanks for the kind words. I know it’s available for instant download via Kindle and the Kindle apps:

      Here’s a link: http://amzn.to/fcKE4X

      I hope this helps your paper!

  16. Dan Morell

    Hello Erik -

    I’m loving the direction you’ve gone and a large supporter of social media. Where are you speaking next? I would love to hear your thoughts on different topics and the current pulse as you see it unfolding.

    My question:

    MySpace had a HUGE pull for awhile and had an intense audience. Now with Facebook shifting gears they have taken a sizable lead over MySpace.
    Do you see Facebook being moved to the side by any competing social media sites or do you see MySpace shifting gears and re-marketing themselves back into competition?

    Thanks for your response and keep up the great work,

    Dan Morell

  17. David

    Any plans to talk in Michigan???

    1. equalman

      I need to get back to my home state soon. I spoke a few months back in Rochester Hills, but need to get back.

      Thanks!

  18. Mike McCready

    Hi Erik, love the videos and will definitely be buying the book. I’m a web manager for a college in Alberta, Canada. I was wondering if you have any speaking engagements planned for Canada? Also, how would we go about hiring you to speak?

    1. equalman

      Mike: Thanks for the kind words! For speaking items please send a note to socialnomics at gmail please!

  19. JK

    Erik,

    You should consider coming to South Africa as well. There is such a lack of knowledge with regard to implementing social media into current marketing strategies. Great site!

    JK

    PS: I am doing my thesis on New Media and your site has been a light in the dark! THANKS!

    1. equalman

      JK:

      I’m glad you find the site helpful! I am scheduled to do a video skype broadcast in SA. Once I know the date I will let you know. I visited there once about 7 years ago and loved it (went Great White Shark diving too). Thanks for the kind words.

  20. Bobby

    My Global Studies teacher asked me to quickly check to see if there was a cost for you to come and speak about Socialnomics and the Social Media Revolution.

    Location: New York State

      Bobby:

      Thanks for your comments and for reaching out to me! Shoot me an e-mail to my gmail account (handle is equalman) and we will take it from there! Thanks for the interest in Socialnomics!

  21. Mattias

    Hi Erik,
    don’t forget to visit sometimes also the old continent ;)
    When and where do you think to visit us?

    Maybe Italy, Rome :) ?

    1. equalman

      I would love to! I haven’t had great food and culture in a long time…so it would be nice to get over that way. I’ll let you know.

  22. Nicola Furlong

    Hi Erik,

    Just wanted to congratulate you on your excellent presentation today at Book Biz’s Digital Forum. Especially liked your examination of how to use social networking sites to determine marketing strategies for publishers.

    1. equalman

      Nicola:

      I’m glad you found this publisher session helpful – I know I had a ton of fun doing it so it’s great to hear it helped!

  23. Imcouple

    want to but the book but does it have a digital version ? (regular PDF and not for kindle)

    1. equalman

      Only Kindle for now, but working with publisher on this!

  24. Paul Duran

    Loved the book! I am recommending it to my friends and can’t wait until your next one. It was insightful and very well written.

    1. equalman

      Paul:

      You are too good to me – thanks for spreading the Socialnomic word! Best – Erik

  25. Clinton Calwell

    Loved the video, extremely inspiring. Will be ordering the book tomorrow.

    Any plans for a speaking engagement in the Vancouver BC or Seattle area?

  26. Kaarina Kvaavik

    I see you’re having a book launch September 10, in Boston… But, no location yet. Are you signing and/or speaking about the book in Boston somewhere? If so, I’d love to know. I’ve just ordered the book and am looking forward to reading all of it…

    1. equalman

      The Book Launch Party is at BiNA Restaurant (581 Washington Street) in downtown Boston from 6-9 pm on 9/10. The really exciting thing is that it’s a dual book launch party with Chris Brogan author of Trust Agents.

      I will also be speaking at Harvard Bookstore (COOP) on Tuesday, Ocotber 13th.

  27. Gary Fountaine

    Need to do a West Coast / San Francisco Bay Area apperance.

    No West Coast yet eh? You should make a trip out here, I think you’d pack the house. I love the video by the way, the revolution one. Its awesome. Inspiring.

      Oscar – glad you liked the video! I hope to get to the Valley soon as it’s never good to be away from there too long.
