Get Rich Quick Books - 06/25/08 10:17 PM
At Trump University we have done our share of book marketing but today a book ad caught my eye. Felix Dennis (founder of Maxim magazine) has a new book out titled How To Get Rich. The title just comes right out and says what the book is all about. The ad’s headline is You’ll Never Get Rich Working For Your Boss. Who wouldn’t stop and read that ad? It is very direct and to the point and hits at the heart of the subject matter. This book like so many of the others in the wealth creation industry shares the author’s (4 comments)

A good friend of mine Andrea Nierenberg is a professional networker. She has written a number of books on the subject and just the other day I started to read her latest book Savvy Networking 118 Fast and Effective Tips for Business Success. This book is for anyone who needs to grow their business, market themselves, get clients, sell anything or who just want to build a great network etc. The book is structured so that you can basically read from any page and get something out of it. Well item # 26 ‘Change Your Scenery’ was the one I picked today. The point is (4 comments)
Testing Pays Off - 06/17/08 08:52 AM
Over at Trump University we have been running a multivariate test on one of our landing pages. The final results are not in but some of the initial findings are worth sharing. Here are a few key areas most businesses could probably benefit from when building out web pages or writing sales copy. The most important element in terms of increasing conversion is to present copy in bullet points (or some similar format). Basically people don't want to read. People like to get bite size chunks of information. Bullet points are easy to scan, read and remember. Be very direct with (4 comments)

The top 5% Income Producers - 06/04/08 08:53 PM
Everyone wants to be at the top of their game, gain industry recognition etc. Well I just met with one of our real estate instructor/investors James Harris. James was talking to me about how real estate professionals have a unique opportunity and advantage to profit in the current real estate market.
