Do you ever get frustrated trying to market your business on the Web?
There are so many important factors – publishing mechanics, social media, blogging, Search Engine Optimization, creating landing pages, looking at visitor statistics, writing engaging content, developing a target market, strategy for Google Adwords, developing products….
Does your head spin? I’ll admit it – all the dazzling facets of Internet marketing make me quite dizzy sometimes.
Here’s a free guide that simply blew me away as a source of sanity amid all the clamor.
It’s from a marketing advisor to the (growing) fringe – Tad Hargrave – who runs a great site called MarketingForHippies.com
If you want 195 pages of espresso-rich marketing advice (take it in small doses) — download his free e-book. You get it free as a bonus for subscribing to “emails from time to time.”
Among the top most helpful and inspiring bits in it
- Hargrave’s vision of the Conscious economy – made of locally active, cooperative people who want to live a good life and give back — who value building relationships and sustainable profits
- The rationale (no — the plea) for fair-minded ‘conscious’ entrepreneurs to succeed and build the new economy – and therefore to learn to market with integrity
- Lessons in creating marketing strategies that attract prospects and open conversations (as opposed to manipulating people and closing sales)
- 2 Self-assessments at the end, where you score yourself on a dozen “marketing horrors” and the health of your core relationships, and find out how to fix things yourself.
It speaks to a lot of problems we all struggle with in trying to understand the people we want to help with our business.
