Los Gatos, CA (PRWEB) June 11, 2004
Seth Godin, entrepreneur and author of the bestselling book Purple Cow, today announced the inclusion of the 280 Group LLC in his 2004 Bull Market Directory, a resource for connecting organizations with some of the worldÂs most creative thinkers. In early 2004, Godin issued a call for entries seeking the worldÂs most innovative copywriters, brainstormers, advertising agencies, prototypers, designers, artists and more. The 2004 Bull Market Directory will features the 280 Group and is expected to reach more than one million people (Godin's Unleashing the Ideavirus was the most downloaded e-book in history).
"'The 280 Group' has demonstrated that it is a Purple Cow catalyst, helping clients shake things up and think innovatively," commented Godin. ÂThe 280 Group has challenged its clients to become spectacular and invigorating. Smart companies realize that they can create Purple Cows faster with a bull."
In Purple Cow, Godin argued that the only effective marketing strategy is to build innovation into a product or service from inception, ultimately creating a Purple Cow to stand out among a marketplace of traditional brown cows. The 2004 Bull Market Directory is the next step for Godin in questioning traditionally accepted corporate strategies and inspiring business success by uniquely communicating his vision and expertise.
"Seth Godin is one of the sharpest marketing minds in the industry," said Brian Lawley, President of the 280 Group, "as a company that helps clients define and launch breakthrough new products we are excited to have been chosen to be a part of the 2004 Bull Market Directory."
Godin's Purple Cow was a BusinessWeek bestseller for five months. It also appeared on the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists. The launch of the 2004 Bull Market Directory coincides with the release of Godin's new book, Free Prize Inside, due on shelves May 10, 2004. In Free Prize Inside, Godin expands upon the Purple Cow concept, divulging the secrets of companies that have succeeded by creating a product or service that is fundamentally remarkable.
