Write this down: BitTorrent Tim Ferriss managed to get huge exposure notthrough mainstream media channels but by giving theBitTorrent community free content which was thenspread organically across the Internet. The result? He ended up getting onto mainstreammedia AFTERWARDS. He was rejected by Barnes and Noble! He took adifferent route that led to massive success. The takeaway: 1. Cultivate relationship with the peoplewho run BitTorrent. 2. Give your content (some not all)to BitTorrent for free. 3. Reward the people whoadvocate for you and distribute your content. 4. FollowBitTorrents blog and Tim Ferriss for specific steps. Implication: you dont need the big guys anymore. Youneed the people. Tapping into the collective is themost important thing to do! 10.
