Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Much of the first chapter (or "book" as it's referred to by the authors) is a basic overview of establishing a web presence. While most of their suggestions can be easily found online, the sub-chapter on writing effective copy contains useful pointers that normally wouldn't appear in design books.
The chapter on SEO offers an excellent breakdown for anyone not familiar with optimizing a site to rank well on search engines such as Yahoo and Google. If you're already familiar with basic SEO techniques, though, don't expect any new tips or techniques. This particular section of the book was seriously lacking, as evidenced by the author explaining how to optimize images, but not mentioning even the most basic of tips such as use of alternate image tags.
Chapter three, which covers Web Analytics, offers in-depth explanations of how to effectively track your visitors. This is followed up by a chapter on attracting those visitors to your website through paid advertising, and their techniques would definitely make this process easy for online marketing newbies.
Most of the Email marketing advice (save for writing copy) is impractical, as many advertisers use paid newsletter services that have eliminated the stress of manual email blasts.
The two best chapters of the book are easily the Blogging and Social Media marketing ones. Chapter six will explain everything an online marketing newbie needs to know about creating a blog, coming up with blogging ideas, and promoting your posts. Their techniques are immediately followed by methods of promoting yourself through social media websites such as Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, and a variety of Bookmarking sites. One thing this chapter does well is explain how to master the art of subtle promotion without appearing to advertise.
While I thought the chapter on Search Engine Optimization was severely lacking for a book dedicated to web marketing, as a whole I think this deserves five stars as a thorough primer.
It's informative, easy to read, and so hefty I now have Jennifer Aniston arms just from carrying it around. I'd recommend it to anyone starting an online business.
Lacking SEO skills will mean the difference of being an unknown or a traffic magnet online. These eight minibooks will show you how to get your site found by search engines. Learn how to write ads that turn views to clicks, and clicks to sales.
If your spending money marketing online, this book will show you how to stop wasting your money, and maximize results. The book list the best techniques to generate traffic, and even how to reach your audience using mobile technology.
I highly recommend you buy this book, read it, act on it, and watch your online profits increase.
