Hey, if you read this blog you probably know I’m a fan both of Amanda Palmer’s music, and her business sensibility. Here we are backstage at the MIT Media Lab. Since she’s a singer, its only fair to hear some music along with her Ted talk.
Her Ted Talk and the Art of Asking is up. I think her work demonstrates what it means to delight customers, to build enthusiastic loyalty, the kind that can easily span bumps in the road. Of course, for me the music is the pay off, but hear her take on raising over a million dollars from fans on Kickstarter — and why “asking” with jubilance and earnestness may be the killer app in building any act of creative passion.
