Good Readings For Internet Marketers

March 5, 2013 12 Comments

Internet Marketing is very popular in the English speaking countries. There are 1000s of books available in English. You can get them as “real” books but also even more as eBooks. And some of them are really good. Personally, I love reading eBooks on my Kindle or iPad but I also have printed PDFs I bought so I could read them on the sofa. Here are some of my favorite books. I’ve chosen those books which helped me a lot when I started working online. I really hope you’ll enjoy them, too. I give you a short introduction and let you know what you find in these books.

The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living

100dollarstartupIf you need any further motivation to start your online business, you’ll love this book. Chris Guillebeau is still in his early 30s and travels the world – working from where he loves to work. He never had a “real” job and makes as many others a living working online. In his book, he has identified 1,500 individuals earning $50,000 plus every year from an investment as small as $100. In nearly all cases these businessmen and women has no special skills but monetized their passion – and make a nice living from it today enjoying a richer and more fulfilled life. A really good read where you get the feeling: I can do that, too!

    Hi Monja,

    Great list – just added a couple to my GoodReads account. I have read $100 startup. It’s one of my favorite books because it motivates the heck out of you to get up and start doing something!

    Hi Monja, great list of books to get a person motivated to begin their own marketing business. I think that a lot of people have trouble with marketing due to mindset. If they have the right motivation and mindset then I think that people will be more successful.

      Lulu,
      Thanks for your comment – I absolutely agree. That’s the problem with working online. And that’s one reason why we founded the site here – to have people who really want to learn something but sometimes – as all humans do – need a kick in the butt 😉 I don’t mind to kick but I need it as well by times 😉

    Out of all the books that you recommend reading, I enjoy Think and Grow Rich most. I find the concept of being positive in thinking important in order to attract wealth. It will be good if we have a compilation of success stories of Internet Marketer. It will become a motivation for many people who strive to earn a living online.
