For over 10 years I have developed hundreds of websites, gotten them ranked well on Google, and have made my clients a great deal of money. But like any experienced web marketer, I'm always looking for fresh ideas for my clients and for myself.

Free Marketing is a good primer if you're new to promoting yourself on the web. Where the author succeeds are the chapters on what he is most experienced with, which is email marketing. Web newbies are provided with useful tips on newsletters, mass mailouts, and automating your marketing emails.

The book also offers useful ideas related to blogging, marketing through the use of original content, and the benefits of promoting your business through Youtube videos.

Having purchased at least 50 sales, marketing and web promotion books through Amazon, I was surprised that the author was probably the first to print an extremely important technique related to Youtube promotion. Google owns Youtube, and tends to mix videos into many of its search engine results. That being the case, a business owner can find their videos on the first page of Google for a search of their target keywords. It's an effective strategy that I've been surprised more web marketing authors haven't emphasized.

Having said all this, the book is unfortunately light on the type of marketing tips that could help most. The author admits that he isn't particularly savvy when it comes to social network marketing (Facebook, Twitter), so the chapters on how to capitalize on using them are lacking. Other books dedicated solely to social networks provide case studies that prove just how powerful promoting yourself through those websites can be with respect to free marketing.

I am an ebay Titanium($100k+ per Month in Sales)Top-Rated Seller who owns several ecommerce websites and several brick and mortar business. I've read virtually every book there is about making money online, entrepreneurship and low-cost marketing methods. It was one of those books that I first ran across the name "Jim Cockrum." The book itself was awful and a complete waste of money EXCEPT for the special "Tips," section in it which kept featuring this guy named Jim Cockrum. I decided to google him and let me just say it was one of the best internet searches I have ever conducted. It led me to his membership websites where I quickly became a member and devoured much of the information at his sites. In this book Jim lays it all out. This book is packed full of some of the best advice from Jim's membership sites. It also spells out how Jim has become one of the most-influential marketers in the world of online marketing. There is a reason most of us who belong to his sites and have read his books hang on his every word.....TRUST! I have studied many an internet-marketing guru and read them all. All the guys who parachute out of planes or shoot videos of themselves riding around in jeeps in california peddling their "Get-rich-quick," internet courses for $1497 and I can find better information and information that actually works on Jim's sites and in his books. Simply put, Jim Cockrum is the only Internet-Marketer/Guru who has actually helped me put money into my pocket year after year. And he is an all around wonderful guy who responds to everyone of his customers. I seriously don't know where the guy finds the time somedays because he interacts with all of us!Read more ›

Over the years, Jim Cockrum has taught me several methods to grow my online business that you are about to learn in his Free Marketing book.

In fact, when I first started my online business, I took just ONE of Jim's ideas and I generated a recurring monthly income of $500 in 24 hours... and in his new book, he shares 101 ideas that are low and no cost!!

Just from reading the first few pages of Jim's new book - Free Marketing, I gained five new ideas that I can implement tomorrow to further grow my business online.

I'm still plowing through the book myself - and as expected, the wheels are turning from the ideas I'm reading about... BEWARE! Buy this book and you won't be able to sleep tonight... you will be too busy coming up with ways to implement Jim's creative marketing ideas!

I noticed that most of the reviews posted before mine either were short and vague OR were written by people who were already fans of the author OR admitted not reading the whole book OR some combination of these. I've worked in marketing roles for 8 years, had never heard of the author before, and read the whole book, so now it's time for a real review. The book earns two stars because it covers several marketing topics and it's written in an easy-to-understand, conversational language. However, the book has too many faults for me to recommend it, such as:

* Doesn't help you choose the right tactics or judge quality--Organizations come in many different shapes and sizes and have different marketing needs. Where this book really fails is that it does a poor job of helping the reader decide which ideas to implement and which are sustainable. Also, I've seen many examples of clumsy, bad marketing and this book does little to help the reader gauge what makes for quality marketing and how to create it.
* Way too long and poorly organized--Despite having a chapter on brevity, the book goes on for more than 300 pages. And there aren't actually 101 distinct marketing concepts discussed, as the title states. Many of the chapters simply rehash material that has already been written, and there are endless references to other parts of the book. One third the way through the book and the repetition gets annoying; two thirds through and it's painful. The organization is just sloppy; it probably should have been an 80 page book with 30 ideas and a robust table of contents.
* Way too self-promotional, slick, and salesy--The author makes frequent mentions of his online properties and services, even when they're not at all relevant to the subject matter.
