Continuing their domination in the niche of enhancing must read business books with graphic comic art, SmarterComics announces that their transformation of Chris Anderson's "The Long Tail" is a finalist at Best Books 2011. The eighth annual contest recognizes the best and most innovative books in a number of categories. Artist Shane Clester adds his sharp, witty sketches to prose that has already proven to be an international bestseller, landing "The Long Tail" as a finalist in the Business: General category.
"The Long Tail" by Chris Anderson and illustrated by Shane Clester explains to readers how to earn big profits on niche items. The method is seemingly simple: sell what each customer wants. Anderson lends his insights and opinions on proper utilization of social media and content to market any small business or product. As editor-in-chief of Wired Magazine, Anderson is quite familiar with what consumers of today's economy are craving. The visual interest added by Shane Clester enhances the strategies and gives them further dimension and depth.
