New York City, NY (PRWEB) May 17, 2004
As Was, a full-service consulting firm specializing in starting, marketing, and improving eBay and online businesses, announced that it is the only online auction consulting company in the recently debuted 2004 Bull Market Directory. A new e-book by best-selling author, entrepreneur, and speaker Seth Godin, the 2004 Bull Market Directory includes 500 copywriters, advertising agencies, prototypers, designers, artists and more that will make a business, product, or service what Godin calls a Purple Cow.
In his book, Purple Cow, Godin argues that the only effective marketing strategy is to build innovation into a product or service from inception, ultimately creating a Purple Cow, which stands out among a marketplace of traditional brown cows. Godin's Purple Cow was a BusinessWeek bestseller for five months, and also appeared on the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists. The 2004 Bull Market Directory is expected to reach more than one million people.
As Was, combining nearly a decade of website and online sales and marketing experience in addition to advanced eBay knowledge, boasts a proven track record for its clients on eBay.
