By now you’ve all heard the story (and the amazing golden radio voice) of Ted Williams, former radio announcer turned homeless man turned viral video sensation and success story OVERNIGHT. See his appearance on The Today Show.
Ted Williams standing on the street, holding his cardboard sign…cardboard sign or was it a…cardboard tweet?
His is the story of second chances, good ole fashioned self-promotion, and reconnecting with the world.
He was sending a message out into the ether, isn’t that what we all do with Twitter and Facebook? Instead of trying to get a few bucks, our reward is retweets and “likes” or followers and friends. Whether you’re participating in a digital social network for business or pleasure, you’re forming connections, building relationships, and promoting information.
Ted Williams is well on his way down the road of recovery; so far he’s already recorded voice over for a Kraft Macaroni and Cheese commercial, accepted an offer from MSNBC for voice work and is still going over numerous other exciting job offers. What a way to start 2011!
Viral video saved this radio star. How will it help you?
