The value of the The Purple Cow is entirely in its premise: you need an outstanding product or service or not only will you not sell anything, but you will be ignored.
Another reviewer succinctly warned that the book was all repetition and not to bother with a purchase. Well, I like to think for myself and often take reviews lightly as sometimes reviewers have agendas that aren't apparent. My loss.
Seth probably wrote the whole concept with all branches in a page of single spaced 10 pitch font. His discussion, I think, is intended to make him look like he is a Purple Cow. I had the audio speed at 1.25 but should have bumped it up higher. I would have lost nothing.
Sorry Seth, but shallow sells as well as boring. Your next book will be hard to pick out in the vast Audible library.
Great book about marketing.
Make insanely great products, base your marketing on that
Yes I did listen to it in one sitting.
Exactly what the title says. Do not waste your money on this one. Being a small business owner, I am surprised at what people sell sometimes. I would be ashamed if my product delivered this little bit of value.
I have wanted to read this for sometime now. Glad I was able to download it and listen to this short book. Godin presents theories and concepts in different ways than most think about. Highly recommended!
i liked the examples shown in the books which explains how the tips have been applied to reality, also clarifies that safe is risky in a way that sticks. It overfills with information at certain times but overall is good.
Great ideas for creating a unique successful company. Would highly recommended to new business owners , existing owners that are struggling and businesses that are triumphing at this time.
I became a big fan of Seth Godin, and Purple Cow is his third book that I read. The idea about being remarkable is still updated, and it's very good to see the evolution of some companies that was used for examples. Keep writing, Seth!
Short and concise, but first few minutes sums it up. I got this because of recommendations from Pat Flynn and Omar Zenhom, but it was just ok because they basically sum up the book for you on their podcasts.
