There were a lot of useful tips in this book. I run a similar business and this book doesn't cover everything, but it's enough to get a small business owner started.

HASH(0xa1f6bd2c) out of 5 stars Only Three Reviews? For This Encyclopedia? Jan. 23 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this thinking I was going to get some useful information.

This book literally covers everything from Social Media to PPC, e-mail, linking from directories, SEO, and building a web store. At a hefty 359 pages, it has something for everyone.

If you have a local retail store or want to attract new business to a local service business, this book will cover it.
The coverage of how to build a web store is out of the range of most books on local online advertising, but you get sa thorough breakdown of the steps involved in this book.

The end of the book is a little promotional for Yodle. But it isn't intrusive, and the book is a great value

I like it, but I wish I had the cliff not version, oh wait, guess this is the cliff note version. It really is helpful and it's chockfull
of ideas. I just skip to the portions I know I can do now as I'm launching my very small business. Everybody without a business can tell you how to run yours, but this book shows you what can work for you and how to measure it. I have not read in its entirety, and I doubt I will, but it's good to know it's there. It would be more of a challenge to read this online.
