Publisher's Summary

The marketing methods of the past are losing effectiveness as consumers are getting smarter and smarter and have less and less time. What is needed is a new way of doing business, a method that is simultaneously socially responsible and far more effective than "old marketing". This new way is The Irresistible Offer.

When Domino's Pizza gave their customers an offer they couldn't refuse, "30 minutes or less" or the pizza was free, Domino's grew from a single store to a $4 billion chain. New marketing guru Mark Joyner defines and explains this revolutionary selling philosophy and helps you apply it to your own business. He examines the elements that make up The Irresistible Offer and presents a formula for creating one of your own and tools to help you estimate the effectiveness of your offer in advance.

The clock is ticking. Don't manipulate your customer. Manipulate your offer instead so customers find it, and your company, truly irresistible!

Not Concise, Needs to be abridged

While the first part of this audio book concentrated on the components of the "Irresistible Offer," the remainder of the book was mostly about marketing in general. I was expecting the author to cover the "irresistible offer" more indepth. Instead, the author covered it very broadly and added a lot of general marketing tips that you can get from any other marketing book. He repeats the phrase "irresistible offer" several times without providing new information on how to strengthen our knowledge, properly formulate, construct, and apply an "irresistible offer" to our own businesses.

The narrator's voice gets pretty drone after a while and his message was difficult to follow because I found myself distracted by the way he was delivering his message. The overall message of this book is OK, but I would advise buying the actual book, skipping right to the meat of the subject, and avoiding the filler parts.

One great ideea

The book has a central, great ideea: you need an offer to be in business! What does it take to make a great offer? The author explains a simple but effective concept in an attractive way. It is a good book that you can use to create irresistible offers.

Adolescent and irritating

Talk about sexual obsession. The author's non-stop gotta-get-laid commentaries rapidly overshadowed the message he was trying to deliver. Save your money. There are other authors who have more to offer without resorting to the use of offending language.

Great info for anyone involved with marketing!

Read and heard many books on marketing. Mark does a great job in laying out what you need to do to accomplish conveying your irresistible offer to others. Well worth the listen.

Mediocre Marketing

Nothing new here. Read by the author (which I always prefer) but the quality of audio editing (background noises, pages turning, odd sounds) deteriorates the longer you go into the book. It's "bad" there are just so many better options for marketing insights.

Clear, concise, good examples!

A lot of books talk about what they are going to tell you, this one actually tells you exactly what the tittle says it will. Great for small businesses owners & growing businesses.

A True Leader in Business

i have followed Mark for years and use his advice. This book is very practical and easy to follow. I like that he narrates the book in a conversational manner. I will continue to use the 3 seconds or less in my projects

Great way to sharpen your sales message

A must read for any business newbies. So many new businesses have a hard time explain what they offer. This book is definitely the key to not only sharpen the message but to make it appealing.
