From our good friend Tom Fishburne:
“In the rush to maintain momentum, there is huge pressure to “jump the shark.” Jumping the shark attracts new attention and feels necessary in the game of competitive one-upmansship. But the volume of attention is far less important than the caliber of the attention. And more important than grabbing fresh attention is the maintaining of those already buying.
The risk of jumping the shark isn’t getting eaten by the shark. It’s leaving your loyalists behind.”
