The Big Red Fez

Производитель: "Schuster"

From the author of the business bestseller Permission Marketing, the man Business Week called the`Ultimate Entrepreneur for the Information Age`comes a book of essential truths about building a better website. Everyone who surfs the web knows that some sites are better than others. Now marketing guru Seth Godin identifies and illustrates the crucial guiding principles behind creating websites that satisfy visitors and keep them coming back for more. Once upon a time it was believed that web surfers had plenty of time, knew exactly what they wanted, and made considered decisions with each click. Before long, however marketers asserted that surfers that surfers were busy, ill-informed and impatient. Data would later reveal that the marketers were right. Thus, according to Seth Godin, anyone building a website should think of every visitor as a monkey - in a big red fez. Monkeys want to know one thing: Where`s the banana? If the banana isn`t easy to see and easy to get, the monkey is as good as gone. Expanding upon this premise, Godin uses real-life examples to explain why no website sould try to be all things to all visitors, how and why the mantra`customers first`applies to websites, why it`s incredibly important to think proactively about serving online customers, and more. Packed with wisdom and practical applications, The Big Red Fez is an essential tool for anyone involved in the web.

Seth Godin (born July 10, 1960) is an American author of business books and a popular speaker with appearances at Google, TED and a number of charities. His blog is one of the most popular blogs in the world.Fact|date=August 2008 Godin popularized the topic of permission marketing.


According to his biography, Godin's earliest fascination was with a short-wave radio his grandparents bought for him. In an interview with UXPioneers Godin recalls that talking to people without the use of wires felt like "magic."

At 14, Godin took his first steps into entrepreneurship printing Biorhythms at the local university and selling them for $30 each. At 16, Godin founded a ski club and took a group of 50-60 children to ski by his house in Buffalo every week. Around this time Godin is also known to have worked at a fast food outlet and in media sales.

Godin graduated from Tufts University in 1982 with a degree in computer science and philosophy. He later claims to have abused a major loophole in the system to skip difficult engineering classes in favor of philosophy.Fact|date=August 2008 Godin earned his MBA in marketing from Stanford Business School. From 1983 to 1986, he worked as a brand manager at Spinnaker Software. For a time Godin commuted every week from California and Boston to do both his new job and complete his MBA.

After leaving Spinnaker Software in 1986, Godin became a book packager. It was in the same offices that Godin met Mark Hurst, and founded Yoyodyne. After a few years Godin sold the book packaging business to his employees and focused his efforts on Yoyodyne, one of the first online marketing companies. It was with Yoyodyne that Godin came up with the concept of permission marketing. For a period of time, Godin served as a columnist for "Fast Company" [cite web |url=http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2004/09/so_long_to_fast.html |title=Seth's Blog: So long to Fast Company |accessdate=2008-02-16 |format= |work=] .

Godin and his wife Helene now live in Westchester County, New York.


Godin combines three elements in his writings. First, the end of the "TV-Industrial complex" means that marketers no longer have the power to command the attention of anyone they choose, whenever they choose. Second, in a marketplace in which consumers have more power, marketers must show more respect; this means no spam, no deceit and a bias for keeping promises. Finally, Godin asserts that the only way to spread the word about an idea is for that idea to earn the buzz by being remarkable. Godin refers to those who spread these ideas as "Sneezers", and to the ideas so spread as an "IdeaVirus." He calls a remarkable product or service a . Yahoo! currently has a model of a purple cow in the lobby of its Sunnyvale campus. Fact|date=May 2008

Advertisements on television and radio are classified as 'interruption marketing', which interrupt the customer while he is doing something of his preference. Godin introduced the concept of "permission marketing" where the business provides something of value to the customer and thus obtains his permission and then does marketing.
