Books & Magazines

  • Getting Everything You Can Out Of All You've Got - If you buy no other marketing book, buy this one. If you subscribe to my newsletter and/or blog, you know I'm a big fan of Jay Abraham. This guy is brilliant and he has no time for theory or "new ideas". He is an absolute storehouse of perfected methods that work for small business. He believes if you can't guarantee that a marketing method will work, you shouldn't use it. Everything in this book works and he gives all kinds of examples of companies and businesses that he's helped double and triple their business and he gives you all the details of how he does it. This book is a "must have".
  • Confessions of Shameless Internet Promoters - While some of the practices of a few of the “shameless” promoters might be viewed as questionable, there are some great and helpful articles in this book on promoting yourself, your business and your website.

  • Multiple Streams of Internet Income - There are few people in the Internet world who have figured out how to make as much money on the Internet as Robert Allen. This book is full of great tricks, tips and solid "how I did It" information.

  • No B.S. Direct Marketing For Non-Direct Marketing Businesses - Dan Kennedy doesn't pull any punches when he talks about marketing. And while his methods are adaptable to any business, most large businesses have too many marketing people who have to justify their existence to listen to what this guys says. If you are a small business owner and don't have a bnch of fancy "consultants" to handle your marketing, I can't recommend this book enough.

  • Internet Magazine - I almost never recommend print magazines because the articles are either high-level gloss-overs of a subject (in other words, they don't know what they are talking about) or extremely limited in usefulness. No so with Website Magazine. I highly recommend it to anyone in the web design industry.

Nielsen is the guy who does all the studies and research that shows what people are doing in those three to five seconds. If you don't know what they and their "eyeballs" are doing, how will you know how to convince them to stay?
