Meerly ok

Jim has a few good points here, but in the methods he presents are a bit to cold and unpersonal. I'm sure this will appeal to some but even if I could make some money from this, I'm pretty sure I would go for something else.

One of the Best Marketing Guides for Entrepreneurs

What made the experience of listening to Free Marketing the most enjoyable?

We had a great time here at TZAR Marketing listening to this audio book. At first, we found that the book was hard to follow. After listening 3 times. The team was convinced that this was a must have book for any marketer or entrepreneur.

Great!

Would you consider the audio edition of Free Marketing to be better than the print version?

This is a great book but I think it would be better if each chapter had a To-Do list at the end.<br/><br/>Fantastic book though, very useful

Good Content, Sleep-inducing audio.

Any additional comments?

-Note to Mr Cockrum: I know you hired this reader because his voice has an authoritative tone to it, but it comes off as snobby when the subject matter is more practical application and not groundbreaking in nature. I've heard your voice on the audios in your websites before, and I feel as though the readers of your books would benefit much more if you hire a narrator that matches your own lively tempo and personality. -<br/><br/>The information is great. The author proves that if we put these strategies into practice we'll reap great reward. I've finished the book and I know that I'll listen a few more times to pick up the things I missed. I'm just reluctant to do so while driving as I managed to doze off while listening to it in my office a few times, coffee in hand.<br/><br/>My advice to others: Buy the paper copy if you can. But if you do most of your "reading" while driving, get this. It is worth the $, either way. I would only recommend you increase the narrator speed to 1.5x. Safety first. ;)

Good material, Horrible Narrator !!!

What did you love best about Free Marketing?

I've just started listening to this (still in Part 1) and so far the material seems like it's really good, but you have to get past the way this guy reads. His voice fluctuation is awful! I wish I had the printed version instead so I could concentrate on the material more and not be distracted by the narrator. Maybe the narrator was one of the freebies Jim found. Ugh!

Would you ever listen to anything by Jim Cockrum again?

Yes, if he had someone else narrate it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sean Pratt?

ANYONE!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, couldn't do Sean for that long.

Any additional comments?

We'll see once I get through it all.

Some cheap and easy marketing tips

Not bad but i feel like the author is selling me the whole way through. Felt like this book was a little on the shallow side. That being said, some of the info was really good and the tips are fairly easy to follow.
