Books Are Great Web Content Sources

Jan 2nd

I saw about a half dozen blogs mention this review of Predictably Irrational...a book we covered 4 months ago that is still getting tons of new press. The book is so good that Rand did a review of the review. :)

If you have not yet read the Predictably Irrational book then you owe it to yourself to at least read the review. But the book is better than the review...it costs about 1% of what it should. :)

When you are fairly new to the web, if you have a lot of free time, one of the best ways to come up with new content ideas is to read books in other industries and relate some of their key points to your own industry.

If you are starting a site and are new to a field, then looking at the structure of some books in your space is a great way to get a baseline outline for a site structure. $100 on books and 2 weeks of reading and you can have a structured baseline topical knowledge level and site structure that is superior to 99% of competing websites.

Hi readers posters better info seekers one n'all I chuckled when I read this post Aaron ... especially this paragraph ... "When you are fairly new to the web, if you have a lot of free time, one of the best ways to come up with new content ideas is to read books in other industries and relate some of their key points to your own industry" ... Simply because at last after the best part of years of trying this and implementing almost every tactic received in my in-box from what now is termed "Guru's" I've been loyally following waiting for that golden opportunity to do nothing but sign up, purchase, and promote to the promise to earn big bucks simply by being buzzed by all the razzle dazzle of all the bling!! ... WHY the chuckle you might be thinking? ...

... Simply this in my so many years on the marketing trail of the trial & errors route I've never seemed to have the luxury of free time to enjoy the pleasures of free my-time? ... Ive been so bizzy chasing down ways to promote, learning new ways, to promote, getting my offers to-be-seen, also trying to keep up with the ever changing web-ways ... then my mentor Chris Moos finally got around to sharing one of his major habits to his success ... I almost felt sick when he Finally Revealed STUDY http://www.seobook.com/ + *TOOLS* = SUCCESS ... so that's a book that you will never have enough time to master the key points to your own industries Key-Words & Key-Word-Phrases when I think of all that time I've wandered in here and played around like a kid in a toy-shop instead of realizing how close Ive been all this time to understanding where my own successful formula has been waiting for me to Grow Up!!! ... Keep up the good work Aaron this site as most successful marketers already know is the key to ever-ones online success no matter where you are on your own ladder! ... even before the product formulations ... now that's a Key Word Sentence and a half lol (-;

All my best to you and yours
Phillip

Hi Aaron,
A bit off-topic but are all December articles inaccessible at present or it's just me?
