Really Really Good 10 (The Friendz Edition)

I got nothing but love for ya, as we round the corner here at Really Really Good! Through all the tough guy posturing and whaddamattauuuz I have been known to toss about the internet, I do try to right, rite, and write really really good for you, you and you, my internet obsessed online family and friends. It feels good when I see that you, my friends are still there, cheering for the home team. With that said, I hereby dub the, La Friends Edition, served with a generous amount of whine to accompany the cheese.

~BCpotw092405093005 A little confetti tossing is in order as I have been honored with another BlogCritics Editor’s Pick. I can’t wait for the next one! (Getting my A-Rod trash talking on) Seriously, thanks guys! Check the review out here.

The Ultimate Guide to Electronic Marketing for Small Business
Tom Antion
Wiley Books

While reading books with topics like Electronic Marketing may not be the most exciting time spent, it is time well spent. This book offers small business owners a multitude of ideas, tips, and webpage links on low cost methods of online promotions of your business. Tom Antion had written an excellent resource for online entrepreneurs, and everyone should be able to increase their own marketing visibility by simply following the tips listed. The only problem is, if you have been actively involved in your website for a significant period of time, you may already know the tricks that are revealed.

For example, the first chapter defines common knowledge items such as AOL, sub domains, ISP addresses, and web hosting services. Maybe I’m jaded, but I would think that everyone already knows what a search engine is, and shouldn't have to buy a book with that defines it again. However, those who don’t have a clue will find this type of information invaluable, and very easily explained by Antion.

Once the WWW 101 course is over, the book becomes more interesting with chapters like “The Mechanics of Website Sales” and “How To Create and Distribute a Kickbutt Electronic Magazine.” With all the advice that Tom Antion has written in “Electronic Marketing for Small Business”, I’ll have topics of conversation and tech tips for Really, Really Good for a really, really long time.

Final Verdict!
The Ultimate Guide to Electronic Marketing for Small Business = absolutely necessary!
Make sure this is on your bookshelf, preferably close to the computer, especially if it’s your first time doing business online.
