Learned tons of tips, with my favorites below:
1) Google's Free Keyword Tool
-adwords.google.com/select/keywordtool...
a. helps you find the most used keywords for your subject, ex. blogs

В целом очень толковая обзорная книга про интернет-маркетинг. Именно обзорная, т.к. довольно поверхностно рассматриваются все возможные способы продвижения в интернете (рассылки, сайт, блог, контент-маркетинг, SEO, SMM и т.д. и т.п.).

Возможно, для интернет-маркетолога в крупной компании не самая лучшая книга; но вот для малого бизнеса и для начинающих индивидуалов-инфобизнесменов - самое то! ;) Причём книга не только для полных "чайников"; в ней есть не только понятно изложенные "азы", но и зна

Recommends it for: Any small business that needs help marketing
Recommended to Abby by: Amazon search
Jim Cockrum provides a great amount of free marketing tips in this book. As a new author, I have learned that marketing is half my job. Also as a new author, my budget is very limited to begin. Therefore, this book came about at the right time for me. I have only begun using some of Cockrum's initial tips and have seen growth in my business. I would recommend this book to anyone who has an online business.

A+ - Cockrum is a pure marketing genius. Many of his ideas from this book are very applicable both on and off line. He also gives great examples of real life people making money online and not just by teaching how to make money on line but by doing whatever they are passionate about. I listened to it on audio but went right out and bought the hardback for reference.

I loved this book. Maybe it was just that I identified with the entrepreneurial tone of the narrative that ties the book together, but I found this book very helpful. It has a clear format broken into bite sized chunks and many marketing tips presented in easy to action steeps. I will be following several suggestion's from this book.

Great book, so many tips and info all together!!

I wasn't reading Jim's blog before, so for me all the information were absolutely new and fresh.

Recommended for everyone that wants to get up to speed to the latest online marketing trends from a REAL guru.

I thought I might resell this book once I read it, but instead, this book is a keeper that I know I'll return to over and over. It's an amazing resource that is full of great ideas that have sparked even more ideas. Best book for marketing in 2014!

This book is written by a real practitioner, someone who actually did it. It offers lots and lots of ideas. If you're interested in learning how to do more marketing online this is a very helpful read.

Jam packed with ideas for marketing your business. Hope it comes out in paperback so I can afford to buy my own copy. Took loads of notes.

One of the best marketers online. This book is pragmatic and by joining Jim's mailing list I've learnt quite a few things that aren't in the book.

This started off as a useful marketing book, and then devolved into another "I got rich by teaching other people how to get rich" book. It was okay.

Good stuff. It covers a lot of topics in a pretty clear fashion! May be a bit much and overwhelming for beginners!

Easy to get through...offered things that I had read in other books. I appreciate the depth so there was plenty I could pick and use from that applied to my business.

Lots of good tips. Almost too much to process on audiobook without taking notes.
