One of the things I do when I send out the Hedgehog & Fox newsletter each month is include a small list of high-value links. This time around, I want to highlight two of those links on the blog because I think they are of exceptional value.
First, check out Seth Godin’s rundown of the promotional efforts for his must-read new book, Linchpin, at The 2.0 Media Tour. I’ve noted in the past that your could do a lot worse than studying the ways of Copyblogger Brian Clark if you want to learn how to launch a product successfully. The same goes for Seth – and how. Seriously, if you were to set aside a few days just to study how these two guys go about launching and promoting products, I wager you would learn many multiples of what you get from the average MBA program.
And speaking of Brian Clark…
A while back Brian and the highly-insightful Sonia Simone started up a newsletter series called Internet Marketing for Smart People. If you are serious about mastering the fundamental of Internet Marketing in our new social media-driven world, it’s hard to think of a better source – especially at this price (Free!). Really. Sign up today. I mean it.
Finally – for the bonus – you may notice that one of the places that Seth promotes his new book is on Leo Babauta’s Zen Habits blog. In roughly two years, Leo went from zero subscribers to more than 150,000 – that’s way more people than read most magazines or newspapers! He knows what he is talking about when it comes to building a blog, and because I know he knows what he is talking about, I enrolled in his A-List Blogging Bootcamp last fall to study at the feet of the master. Now you can too.
This one will cost you, but in return for what I feel is a reasonable fee, you get access to Leo’s tremendously valuable knowledge and insights and you get to connect with a great network of other bloggers who will be one of your best resources going forward. On top of that, you get to interact directly with Leo himself and his Bootcamp partner Mary Jaksch (also a highly successful blogger).
Like most things of this sort (or at least ones run by people who know what they are doing), you get lots of great free learning content simply by signing up to get more information. Even if you don’t sign on for the full Bootcamp, it’s worth at least signing up to get the freebies. If you want to grow your blog in 2010, head over to A-List Blogging Bootcamp today.
