Does your company sell great products? Or if you don't work in a traditional company, does your organization (church, nonprofit, consulting company, school) offer great services? Well, get over it!

Flipping the Funnel, is a great new ebook from Seth Godin which was just published today. The ideas Seth presents about using Web content are spot on. And I am flattered that my blog and my Squidoo lens: Web Content that Sells are mentioned in Flipping the Funnel (on page 15) as an example of how bloggers use a Squidoo lens to promote their blogs and ebooks and vice versa. How cool is that?
