Counter to traditional marketing wisdom, which tries to count, measure, and manipulate the spread of information, Seth Godin argues that information can spread most effectively from customer to customer, rather than from business to customer. Godin calls this powerful customer-to-customer dialogue the ideavirus. In Unleashing the Ideavirus, Godin examines how companies like Napster and Hotmail have successfully launched ideaviruses. He offers a recipe for creating your own ideavirus, and shows how businesses can use ideavirus marketing to succeed in a world that doesn't want to hear it anymore from traditional marketers.

    " Cool book about the way ideas go viral. I like how he uses Richard Dawkin's term "meme" to describe the way an idea is like a living thing that can evolve, grow, and even die. This is a quick read for anyone interested in business, especially online business ideas. "

    " Dalam buku The Ideavirus yang ia tulis, Seth Godin memaparkan pemikirannya bahwa ‘virus ide’ atau dari konsumen ke konsumen adalah penyebaran informasi yang paling efektif, yang dapat digunakan semua bisnis untuk dapat sukses tanpa harus berurusan lagi dengan cara pemasaran tradisional. "

    " Maybe the dated internet boom references caused problems for me, but I wasn't impressed with this book.

    Maybe the whole virus/sneezing metaphor was just too weird for me. "

    " This is good and actually became viral itself. It's an interesting conept that really only came to light because of the Internet. Before the Internet it was called word of mouth. If you're into marketing or need to spread the word then you need to read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Belinda | 12/18/2007

    " Not as good as his other book, "Purple Cow" this one is aimed at execs who are having a hard time motivating/involving their staff. Also how to get feedback from customers. "

    " Lumayan membuka wawasan... jangan dibaca kalo lu lagi aktif MLM.. merusak mental. "
