MARKETING AND SALES STRATEGIES

Thank you for helping me to write The New Rules of Marketing & PR! (You are in the book)

Posted by David Meerman Scott 02:03 PM on May 10, 2007

Note: If you’ve been linked to in this post, I have an early copy of my book ready to send you. Please read below for details!

This is indeed one of the most unique blog posts I’ve ever done.

In August 2006, I announced that I was starting work on a new book and that I would blog snippets of the book throughout the process.

And I asked for help.

Hundreds of you jumped in to comment on my work, email me with thoughts and suggestions, meet for lunch, or you took the time to chat at a conference. And many others of you wrote great stuff on your own blogs that made me think.

Some people argued with me. (Some pissed me off).

But in the end, drawing on the ideas of many people has made my book much, much stronger.

In the blog world, when someone writes a great post, you link to it. It’s a virtual pat on the back and acknowledgement that the effort was worthwhile. And it recognizes the original idea.

Unfortunately in a hardcover book, that’s not possible. Well, not exactly. What I’ve done is turned the standard book acknowledgements on its ear a bit and have included everyone in this post in my book acknowledgements together with your blog URL.

Yes, I still did the standard thank you messages to my agent, my editor, my wife, and the other people associated with the book. But I also wanted to thank all of you. So, you’re in the book with my thanks.

So not only are you mentioned in the book but my publisher has kindly agreed to supply early copies of my book for each of you. If you’re in the list below, just send me an email to david (at) davidmeermanscott (dot) com with your postal mailing address and I will ship you a book.

Alas, you won’t get the spiffy hard cover with a dust jacket because it is still at the printer (you can order that on Amazon and get it in early June). Instead you will get an early paperback version ahead of the rest of the world.

Cool? Just send me an email!

And thanks for your part in creating my book.

Oh, and one more thing. I’ve met some cool bloggers since the manuscript was due to my publisher. Sorry you didn’t make it into the list. And if I forgot someone (which I’m sure I have), I’m really sorry. My bad.

So, in no particular order, a big thank you to:
