It is a lot of information, and some readers will complain that the topics are not explored in depth. When you can learn to pull on these strings your ads will tug at their heart strings and have them ready to buy what you are selling. The text will, however, give you a general, if a bit superficial, overview of marketing as a whole. As Ferrazzi discovered in early life, what distinguishes highly successful people from everyone else is the way they use the power of relationships—so that everyone wins. If you have the desire and commitment to create phenomenal online results, then this book is your call to action.
