The analysis on the Wall Street Journal's advertising style is worth the price of the book alone. Very highly recommended.
The alternative strategy is simply to do something remarkable in your ad campaigns and in your product. He provides great examples from big corporations (like the Target `big box' store) to the doctor practicing medicine that invests extra because he GENUINELY CARES for his patience. Being remarkable provides a referable product or service that the consumer can't wait to tell others about. It does require creativity to succeed, and a little good fortune to be sure.
Being remarkable targets one's audience and drives a sellable differentiation. There are many ways to get there, and there is risk involved. He elaborates on this issue and provides a realistic expectation, as well as a clear time when this approach is worth the risk.
The book is so relevant to this age of the internet, and provides a practical alternative to shotgun approaches to marketing: REMARKABILITY!
When Seth explains something it's as clear as night and day. I bet you get years worth of MBA and Business schooling and still wouldn't understand what Seth explains in his easy to read books.
My advice on Purple Cow... BUY IT. BUY IT NOW! If I had any more than two thumbs they also be up right now!
PS. Thanks Seth... If you are reading this I really appreciate your books. Keep up the good work! Your help means a lot to me.
