'Tis the Season

"Put down your shopping bags and whip out your calendar because I've got two great seminars for you next week," says MP’s Shelley Ryan.


She’s talking about this Thursday’s Customer Carewords: Words on the Web that Make the Sale. Says Shelley, “If you haven't listened to our favorite Irishman Gerry McGovern before, now's your chance. He has an uncanny knack for making you see your website in a whole new way… I highly recommend this one if you want to get better results from your own website!”

Then Friday, our small business seminar series continues with Michael Goodman on Promotions: Instant Gratification for Small Business Marketers, where he'll be focusing on the kind of highly visible, short-term marketing activities designed to generate quick sales.

And, speaking of shopping (‘tis the season, after all...), if you are looking for good business books, check out my friend Rohit Bhargava’s Ultimate Marketing Bookstore, launched last week. The way most of us find out about great business books is through recommendations from people we trust. Rohit’s store compiles the recommend reading lists of top marketers, all in one place. Best of all, it’s for a good cause -- because the Amazon affiliate action goes to DonorsChoose, a charity that helps teachers run special educational programs in their schools.
