"Seth Godin says that the key to success is to find a way to stand out--to be the purple cow in a field of monochrome Holsteins. Godin himself may be the best example of how this theory works: The marketing expert is a demigod on the Web, bestselling author, highly sought-after lecturer, successful entrepreneur, respected pundit, and high-profile blogger. He is uniquely respected for his understanding of the Internet, and his essays and opinions are widely read and quoted online and off."--Forbes.com
"Seth Godin alters the way people think about marketing, change, and work."--Selling Power
"I love this book! Part wake-up call, part action plan, Purple Cow
shows organizations how to add distinction--and avoid extinction."--Tom Kelley, author of The Art of Innovation
"Godin is endlessly curious, opinionated, and knowledgeable on a wide variety of subjects. He is a relentless marketer...and also a clear-eyed visionary with strong and sensible ideas."--Miami Herald
"Seth Godin may be the best intuitive marketer alive today. He's in that tiny subset of the niche within the microcommunity of people who simply get it."--Randall Rothenberg, columnist for Advertising Age
"Take Leo Burnett, David Ogilvy, Bill Bernbach, and Mark Twain. Combine their brains and shave their heads. What's left? Seth Godin."--Jay Levinson, author of Guerilla Marketing
You're either a Purple Cow or you're not. You're either remarkable or invisible. Make your choice. What do Apple, Starbucks, Dyson and Pret a Manger have in common? How do they achieve spectacular growth, leaving behind former tried-and-true brands to gasp their last? The old checklist of P's used by marketers - Pricing, Promotion, Publicity - aren't working anymore. The golden age of advertising is over. It's time to add a new P - the Purple Cow. "Purple Cow" describes something phenomenal, something counterintuitive and exciting and flat-out unbelievable. In his new bestseller, Seth Godin urges you to put a Purple Cow into everything you build, and everything you do, to create something truly noticeable. It's a manifesto for anyone who wants to help create products and services that are worth marketing in the first place.
