The Last Original Idea - Voted Top 10 Book for Small Business

During November and the early part of December, "The Last Original Idea - A Cynic's View of Internet Marketing" was one of 110 books nominated to participate in the 2010 Small Business Book Awards, Reader’s Choice edition at Small Business Trends.

With "The Last Original Idea" only becoming widely available the 1st week of November, it was at a distinct disadvantage as compared to some of the other nominated books, but through the use of Social Media (marketing) and reaching out to the books' FaceBook fans, our twitter followers, our LinkedIn Connection and yes our standard email contact list, we were able spread awareness of the competition and receive enough votes to secure a top 10 finish (7th place) overall and a 2nd place finish in Marketing Book category.
