This book begins with a history of the Internet and then progresses to inspiring case studies. These are real-life examples of major players who have been incredibly successful by following their passion. By reading this book you can learn some of the secrets of creating good content and find out some hot tips about list building. There is a revealing chapter on spam and information on the real "father of the Internet."
The history of the Internet is a highlight of the book but the list of Internet Marketers and their websites is worth the price of the book. Perry Marshall, Rich Schefren, Jay Abraham and John Carlton are all mentioned.
Reading "Click Here To Order" reminded me of the day I noticed my millionth site visitor so I know it is possible. To me, it isn't about making a lot of money it is about helping the world to find great books but my site pays for itself. "Click Here To Order" will give you an inside look at what it takes to make your own site a success. Whether you are looking for name recognition, a million dollars or you want to raise money for your favorite charity, this book has a lot of inspiring stories to motivate you towards your goal.
~The Rebecca Review
But internet business has changed so much that while these stories of early successful online marketers were entertaining, they didn't hold a whole lot of concrete, specific insights to take away.
In addition, the paths to success were so circuitous that it often felt like listening to a rambling person at a party - you find them interesting but would they just cut to the chase already.
If you are at the point where you are devouring info on successful people so you can feel a connection with other people who are a success, then this is a great book to read. If you're looking for specific takeaways, beyond just the biggest concepts (automate, don't give up, etc), then try Blog Blazers or Problogger instead.
I enjoyed the walk down history lane in the relatively short existence of internet marketing, along with all the real-life tales of ordinary men (and women!) who created *extraordinary* success doing what most people don't do: PERSIST!!
(Just a tidbit of feedback on the Kindle version: the TOC isn't all linked fully making navigation a tad challenging. Plus, the amazing directory of Internet Marketers at the back doesn't format properly for Kindle. Oh well <sigh> I just may have to buy the print version too! LOL)
Now, of course why and what you can find in there.
1. Author claims himself as adsense expert, but I need to tell, he should take a writers carrier - he can write great fictions - his writing style is so great, interesting, fun and entertaining - well, I wish I could write like that. You will enjoy the writing only, not talking about the content.
2. History - in fact the book is a history based on conversations with those, who formed the industry - well, gain I need to tell, you should be from this sect - SEO/SEM/PPC/ROI/ORM and all those letter should make you dizzy and euphoric - only then you will truly enjoy this book.
3... and only then you will see some hidden gems and secrets there. Because this book is NOT written in imbecilic interview style with a really guru in marketing, where author asks:
- Mhm, where you host your site?
- Mhm, what is an e-book, and what is a pdf?
You know what I mean. Joel Comms book is free from those imbecile questions, and more - he does not made it in interview style, instead it's flowing on like a river, smoothly, and besides the stories, author practicaly throws in a hints where he touches ths or that topic.
Impressive, that's all I can say
I did find it hard to follow numerous times as it is neither written chronologically nor in nearly as topical a format as the table of contents may suggest. Chapters seemed to just "take off" & go totally another direction than it started out. To a certain extent I believe this is the nature of the beast considering the topic Joel is attempting to document. (Glad I wasn't MY job to document this history!)
Still I, found it entertaining & worth my time & money. Since I was familiar with most of the players already it helped fill in a number of interesting gaps. Also, there was an obvious effort to do thorough research about the beginnings of the world wide web and early browsers as well.
Just don't consider it as the end all, be all documentation of history of the internet & all of the marketers. It is more a good old boy accounting of many of his friends and acquaintances. Since Joel is one of the power houses of internet marketing that DOES include many (if not most) of the more important people in this industry who may be considered pioneers.
So I would say, sure go ahead, purchase it, enjoy it.
