So, Seth Godin is marketing his book to come with a new dedicated blog.
"All marketers are liars."
But Seth is using this blog to market his new book. There can only be one thing coming out of this. Either, as a marketer, Seth is lying, and some marketers are in fact telling the truth. Or, he is telling the truth, and then he is himself a liar.
Well, there is always the third option.
That he is the first marketer telling the truth, and all marketers before him was actually liars. Then there is considerable amount of value being the first mover to have an advantage. But if no one is believing him, then there is no advantage being first.
If you think I should be nominated to be the second, why not drop me a line. Honestly (sic...!), that would be an experiment greater than anything...
So I start right off. Message:
I come in peace. I come in trust. No [tm]'ed tagline. Just so.
See you out there in the blog-o-sphere ;). Nothing to buy from me yet, though. I have to package it first :).
(with a new virtual business card, by the way - www.andersabrahamsson.info - linked to the Typepad About page, and that is a truth!)
PS. I never thought of having this blog as a marketing tool for a book in the first place. But maybe I will. Or not. I will follow the steps of Godin to see if it works :). Enough having fun. But - referall value anyways - go check his blog, it is amuzing, and enlightning. And I have no share of the book if you buy it, just to let you know :). DS.
