Change Large Strategy to Small Targets

Seth Godin, the king of all things bloggable and master of radical marketing concepts, caught my attention with a why-didn't-I-think-of-that approach. Godin's blog, "Reaching the Right People", looks at a REAL focused give-away of your product or service to a few people who are already fans.

It got me thinking: Why not send GIFTS FROM THE MOUNTAIN to Adventure 16 and REI to give away to a few lucky customers? Why not send a few copies of the book to The Nature Conservancy to give to key employees? I think some life coaches could use Work for a Living & Still be Free to Live.

A gift to people who already treasure the content in these respective books might actually generate word-of-mouth referrals. And what about you? How can you give a little to get a lot. Speaking of giving, Godin also endorses way to literally lend money to small entrepreneurs and have it repaid. Grow enterprise and you can feed a family. Again--it's thinking small for big results.
