Around 2008 I allowed James to access my PC remotely to work out some problems I was having with some website design software. He fixed it ... for free. A few months later he was introduced at a Seminar in Manly, Australia and as I was there I was able to thank him personally. I have followed his success and progress (evolution) from this past association with him. Since then he has obviously risen to prominence, as have many in internet based businesses. But in my opinion James is different. His experience and resultant success was learned in the real world so his online success has a solid foundation few others have, as well as a genuine Aussie honesty when it comes to value for investment. If there were a ladder of success and trust in this industry James would be on the top rung, with a (very) few others a rung or two below; then with a big gap to the next group of entrepreneurs. This book is a testament to his values and the reasons for the respect he has. Funnily enough he scares me. I fear his business sense is beyond me; and the time I have to commit to the type of coaching he offers is just not there, (although there are SO many free "gems" you get from just being on his email list). So I continue to whittle away at other more simple strategies for smaller scale successes while hoping to initiate some of the great wisdom in this book into my own little forays on the internet. Thank you for publishing this great "read" James so I can take some of its advice and improve the way I am doing things.
This book is presented in such a logical, organised way making it very readable and easy to follow. It seemed like I was having a conversation with James and he was answering each of my questions. Covering basics with some great insights then action steps at the end of each chapter this book provides some ideas which are easily applied. I found myself highlighting the items "I must do". Positively inspirational !! Thank You James - Jim Knott
I've been a follower of James Schramko online for more than a few good years now, so when I heard about this book it was a must have for me. And I have to say it definitely did not disappoint. In fact I think for the amount of value you get out of the book it is way too cheap. James is a master at marketing and sharing great advice, and right from the first chapter I gained a tonne of information. No matter at what level of business you are at, this book is a must. Thank you James!
James has a great ability to give you important lessons without the fluff. He uses real Case examples to demonstrate what works and what doesn’t. If you are struggling to build an online business this book will give you a path to follow. He is one of the good guys in an industry full of spin doctors.
What a greatbook. Easy to understand with great action items at the end of each chapter. With just the action steps in this book, you will be able to improve your business regardless of it being online or traditional
I have listened to James' podcasts for several years, and he is the most down-to-earth, uncompromising figure in the space of internet marketing. Nothing gimmicky, hacky, or non-genuine - he is all about the long-game, adding value and being the best at what you do. This book has been a long time coming, I remember James mentioning it a few years ago, and I have looked forward to it ever since. I would challenge anyone to find a more approachable, contactable, genuine practitioner in this market sector. You'll find the contents of this book extremely actionable and practical as it is from James own experience and learnings. A great read, very easy to digest and Kelly has done a wonderful job editing and working with James to get this book out into the world. As cliched as it sounds, do yourself a favour; grab yourself a copy; and put the contents into action.
