In this episode just like last time we’re doing something a little different.
We’re celebrating eCommerce Marketing: How to Get Traffic that BUYS to your website being available on audiobook by sharing a few more chapters from the book with you.
Last week I shared the whole of Part 1 The Customer MasterPlan Model with you.
And this week I’ve picked 3 of the Marketing Maxims from Part 4 to share with you.[Read more…]
In this episode we’re doing something a little different. Last November I published a thoroughly updated version of my book eCommerce Marketing: how to Get Traffic that BUYS to your Website.
Since then it’s consistently been the number 1 ‘eCommerce’ book on Amazon.co.uk, and frequently hits number one positions in the USA and around the world.
Thank you to all of you who’ve bought it, read it, reviewed it on Amazon and used it to help you build your business!
Well in March the Audiobook version FINALLY went live.
(Why it’s taken so long is a story that’s almost as boring to tell as it was frustrating to live through – so I’m not going to bore you with it!) Suffice to say – it’s now available!
So to celebrate that in this episode rather than an interview I’m bringing you a Chapter of the audiobook.
