Seth Godin on This is Marketing: Why You Can't Be Seen Until You Learn to See
Seth Godin is the author of 18 international bestsellers that have been translated into over 35 languages, and have really changed the way people think about marketing. For a long time, Unleashing the Idea Virus was the most popular ebook ever published in Purple Cow, a book you've probably read, is the best-selling marketing of the decade.
Seth's book, Tribes, was a nationwide bestseller, appearing on Amazon, New York Times, BusinessWeek, and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists. It's about the most powerful form of marketing, leadership, and how anyone can now become a leader, creating movements that matter. His book Linchpin came out in 2008 and was the fastest-selling book of his career.
Linchpin challenges you to stand up, do work that matters and race to the top instead of the bottom, something we teach here at Burleson seminars. More than that, though, the book outlines a massive change in our economy, a fundamental shift in what it means to have a job.
Since Linchpin, Godin has published two more books, Poke the Box and We Are All Weird, through his Domino Project. He followed these with The Icarus Deception, a great book that he launched via Kickstarter, which reached its goal in less than three hours. Joined by Watcha Going Do With That Duck and V is for Vulnerable, those books are now widely available.
In late 2014, he announced his latest book, What To Do When It's Your Turn, sold directly from his website. In addition to his writing and speaking, Seth was the founder and CEO of Squidoo. His blog, you can find it by typing Seth into Google, is the most popular marketing blog in the world.
Before his work as a writer and blogger, you probably know Godin was the vice president of Direct Marketing at Yahoo!, a job he got after selling them his pioneering 1990s online startup, Yoyodyne. You can find every single possible detail that anyone could ever want to know, and you can join his podcast at SethGodin.com
