One of Dave Kerpen's favorite quotes is, "Listen first and never stop listening." Over the course of his successfully diverse career, the quote has served Kerpen well. Today, the entrepreneur, author and reality television personality (he appeared as a contestant in the Fox Network's "Paradise Hotel") heads up Likeable Media with his wife, Caroline Kerpen).
The New York City-based social media marketing firm uses social insights to develop and promote digital branded content that generates business results. Kerpen also is author of the New York Times bestseller, "Likeable Social Media: How to Delight Your Customers, Create an Irresistible Brand, and Be Generally Amazing on Facebook (& Other Social Networks)."
His insights also can be found in Forbes, Inc magazine, Mashable, The Huffington Post, among others.
