Team Blue Striped Tigers's insight:

Louis C.K.’s lesson for marketers: Honesty is the best strategy

Louis C.K.’s lesson for marketers: Honesty is the best strategy | Transparency, Openness, Honesty | Scoop.it
Much has been made of the success of Louis C.K.’s self-released video special, but Jessica Lee examines it as a social media marketing campaign, chalking his success up to one ingredient that’s often missing in marketing: trust.

 

Comedian Louis C.K. recently self-released a video of his stand-up special, “Live at the Beacon Theater,” for $5 online. He personally paid for the production costs up front in an experiment to see if this was a cheaper, more efficient, and less restrictive method of getting his content to his fans. In doing so, he cut out paying the middlemen — including the marketing team — and avoided the red tape of working with studio executives.

 

In twelve days, Louis C.K. earned more than $1 million from people downloading the special — far more than the $170,000 it cost to produce the video. Louis C.K. gave his thoughts in a post on his site:

 

“I would have been paid [less than $200,000] by a large company to simply perform the show and let them sell it to you, but they would have charged you about $20 for the video … This way, you only paid $5, you can use the video any way you want.”...

The Transparency Trap

The Transparency Trap | Transparency, Openness, Honesty | Scoop.it
Too much openness can be counterproductive. Privacy is just as important to performance.
Team Blue Striped Tigers's insight:
Transparency can sometimes be a paradox. Here’s the paradox: "For all that transparency does to drive out wasteful practices and promote collaboration and shared learning, too much of it can trigger distortions of fact and counterproductive inhibitions."

Essentially, being too open can actually hinder productivity.
