June 30, 2014

Hey freaks! I always wanted to start a blog post like that. If this label upsets you, hold up a bit. That’s the focus of Chris Brogan’s new book The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth. Chris is one of our keynotes at this fall’s Social Brand Forum in Iowa. He was kind enough to take a few moments and chat with us about his book and why you just may be a bit of a freak about your business.

As the publisher of Owner Magazine, a New York Times best-selling author, and speaker, Chris is an expert on both mastering the digital channel and harnessing your inner freak to grow your business, attract more customers, and align what you’re doing online to who your brand is offline. Enough dancing around. Let’s talk to Chris!
