Penguin Publishing Group | November 12, 2009 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Purple Cow, New Edition: Transform Your Business by Being Remarkable--Includes new bonus chapter is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
You're either a Purple Cow or you're not. You're either remarkable or invisible. Make your choice. 

What do Starbucks and JetBlue and KrispyKreme and Apple and DutchBoy and Kensington and Zespri and Hard Candy have that you don't? How do they continue to confound critics and achieve spectacular growth, leaving behind former tried-and true brands to gasp their last? 

Face it, the checklist of tired 'P's marketers have used for decades to get their product noticed -Pricing, Promotion, Publicity, to name a few-aren't working anymore. There's an exceptionally important 'P' that has to be added to the list. It's Purple Cow. 

Cows, after you've seen one, or two, or ten, are boring. A Purple Cow, though...now that would be something. Purple Cow describes something phenomenal, something counterintuitive and exciting and flat out unbelievable. Every day, consumers come face to face with a lot of boring stuff-a lot of brown cows-but you can bet they won't forget a Purple Cow. And it's not a marketing function that you can slap on to your product or service. Purple Cow is inherent. It's built right in, or it's not there. Period. 

In Purple Cow, Seth Godin urges you to put a Purple Cow into everything you build, and everything you do, to create something truly noticeable. It's a manifesto for marketers who want to help create products that are worth marketing in the first place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing book - buy today! I have read Purple Cow 3 times and every time I read it I get so many new ideas that revolutionize my approach to business. The book is an easy read and I would recommend to buy it. The best 3 ideas I got were: 1. Small is the new Big: uncover a small niche market that you're passionate about and then become the absolute best person serving that market 2. Don't be afraid to stand out. Be unique, gutsy, true to yourself and brand yourself in a unique way. Vanilla is dead - be purple! 3. Make your product/service refer-able to a key group of sneezers who will do your marketing for you. All I can say is wow!!
