Amazon Review

Seth Godin, one of the world's foremost online promoters, offers his best advice for advertising in Permission Marketing. Godin argues that businesses can no longer rely solely on traditional forms of "interruption advertising" in magazines, mailings, or radio and television commercials. He writes that today consumers are bombarded by marketing messages almost everywhere they go. If you want to grab someone's attention, you first need to get his or her permission with some kind of bait--a free sample, a big discount, a contest, an 0800 number, or even just an opinion survey. Once a customer volunteers his or her time, you're on your way to establishing a long-term relationship and making a sale. "By talking only to volunteers, Permission Marketing guarantees that consumers pay more attention to the marketing message," he writes. "It serves both customers and marketers in a symbiotic exchange."

Godin knows his stuff. He created Internet marketer Yoyodyne and sold it in 1998 to Yahoo!, where he is a vice president. Godin delves into the strategies of several companies that successfully practice permission marketing, including Amazon.com, American Airlines, Bell Atlantic and American Express. Permission marketing works best on the Internet, he writes, because the medium eliminates costs such as envelopes, printing and stamps. Instead of advertising with a plain banner ad on the Internet, you should focus on discovering the customer's problem and getting permission to follow up with e-mail, he writes. Permission Marketing is an important and valuable book for businesses seeking better results from their advertising. --Dan Ring, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"Business Week"

Seth Godin is the ultimate entrepreneur for the Information Age.



Eric Hippeau

Chaiman, Ziff-Davis, Inc.

Finally, here's a measurable method for marketing in a world filled with clutter.



Tom Peters

Seth Godin moves to the front ranks of Internet Marketing Gurus with this masterful book. It's trite to say it, but this is a real "must read."



Robert Tercek

Senior Vice-President, Sony Pictures Entertainment

The principles of Permission Marketing are incredibly valuable to everyone involved in media today.



Mark Kwamme

CEO, CKS Group

"Permission Marketing" is a testament to Godin's profound grasp of digital marketing. "Interruption Marketers" everywhere would do well to read this book.



Lester Wunderman

Chairman-Emeritus of Wunderman Cato Johnson, the largest direct-marketing firm in the world; author of "Being Direct."

Advertisers are going to have to learn how to deliver messages with frequency and low cost if they are to cope with the increasing competition for the consumer's attention. Seth Godin's "Permission Marketing" is a big idea.



William C. Taylor

Founding Editor, "Fast Company"

Godin and his colleagues are working to persuade some of the most powerful companies in the world to reinvent how they relate to their customers. His argument is as stark as it is radical: Advertising just doesn't work as well as it used to -- in part because there's so much of it, in part because people have learned to ignore it, in part because the rise of the Net means that companies can go beyond it.
