The cult classic that revolutionized marketing by teaching businesses that you’re either remarkable or invisible.
Few authors have had the kind of lasting impact and global reach that Seth Godin has had. In a series of now-classic books that have been translated into 36 languages and reached millions of readers around the world, he has taught generations of readers how to make remarkable products and spread powerful ideas.
In Purple Cow, first published in 2003 and revised and expanded in 2009, Godin launched a movement to make truly remarkable products that are worth marketing in the first place. Through stories about companies like Starbucks, JetBlue, Krispy Kreme, and Apple, coupled with his signature provocative style, he inspires readers to rethink what their marketing is really saying about their product. In a world that grows noisier by the day, Godin's challenge has never been more relevant to writers, marketers, advertisers, entrepreneurs, makers, product managers, and anyone else who has something to share with the world.
I read this for free but had to go back and buy it because it’s so good. Shout to Jay-Z for putting me onto this. Reading this felt like an exhale of wisdom into my brain.55
Wether you're in sales, marketing, or the owner of a small company you should read this book. As a owner of a small roofing company, I receive countless offers to advertise. The truth is, most of them don't work. This book explains why and how to grow your business with marketing tools that are right under your nose!45
I like Seth Godin so much. The reason for this is that he states, analyzes, and hypothesizes in ways that match my selling expertise. Best of all, his writing gets me to take action.55
This work of art and science invokes the trend of what sets you part from the crowd. As the book states, it's better to try a bunch of small launches rather than keep all of your eggs in one basket!!! I asked my 4 kids that if try saw a purple cow in the field, what would you say? They replied, "WOW look at that Purple Cow!" REMARKABLE... Dr. Joe Kravitz :))) Author of Dirty Mouth www.dirty mouth.tv55
