Get Rich – Click!

As the title points out the book is really marketing oriented. You can feel that the author, Marc Ostrofsky, was thinking ‘what would get people to buy this book’, ‘oh yeah, to get rich’, and he chose a title… So I bought the book, thinking there’s a marketing mind behind it. Only it is not so in a way that would benefit the reader. It simply uses the reader as a marketing prey. Get Rich, Click! is filled with QR barcodes and plenty of other links leading to the author’s website… It is quite clear what he is trying to market.

Get Rich Click!

The book cover.

What is called ‘The Ultimate Guide to Making Money on the Internet”, does not measure up to its title. If you know anything about the internet, you probably don’t need the book. There are some cute success stories included, and that’s about the only things I got out of it. Stories.

oh, did you know you could sell products on e-bay and make money?… and did you know that you don’t need to have an actual inventory to sell products online? – yeah, that’s what I thought.

Nonetheless, the book is a New York Times bestseller and has received praise from the author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Dr. Stephen R. Covey and from Brian Tacy, another New York Times best selling author; which makes me think that it could, just maybe, benefit someone who has really no clue about the digital world.
