Win The Knack, A Sweeeeet Book On Entrepreneurship

Author: Gab Goldenberg

The KnackReading is the best investment you can make in yourself, and it’s also incredibly enjoyable. So to share the fun and help you build your businesses, I’m giving away a copy of The Knack, a fantastic business book by Bo Burlingham and Norm Brodsky. (Here’s my review of The Knack.)

It’s going to be a random drawing. Here’s how to enter:

1) Tell me what was the first post that you really enjoyed on this site, and name any others you found helpful along the way. The more detail you can share, the better.

2) Then, give me constructive criticism on things you don’t like about the site, such as layout, navigation, given posts I’ve written etc.

3) Finally, you need to mention in your comment the password that I’ve put in my RSS feed / email newsletter. I’ll edit the comment before it goes live to remove the password so others can’t see it, but I need to see that password if you want to be eligible to win.

  1. Password: [ed] To be honest, I don't have a favourite post. I think your best article was your long link building post for SEJ. In terms of design, I think you could make a lot of improvements. Maybe you don't like my style though so take this with a pinch of salt. 1. The font is HUGE. Taking it down a few points in your blog posts would make things look a lot better in my opinion. 2. I prefer sites that have right hand side navigation. I know this is more than just a blog and that is a big change, but you did ask for suggestions. 3. I think the quotes on the top left of your site are a little strange. It's good to have been mentioned by people like Aaron, but "worth sharing" isn't exactly the greatest remark. Maybe you could just say my work was praised by SEO pro's like Aaron Wall and Rand Fishkin. 4. A top posts section would be sweet. That's something I'm working on myself. I hope that helps - Glen

  2. Great advice on the quotations, Glen! In my defense, the context was a link to this site from Aaron, but sure, I'll have to find better feedback. The font is large for older readers to be able to read it comfortably, too. Regarding right/left nav, it's something I'd have to test. I can't say that intuitively one is more logical than the other, imho. Much appreciated! Any other feedback, folks?

  3. Gabe, The first post that I saw, and enjoyed, was the one containing the book offer; I discovered your site using the StumbleUpon browser. Like: The color scheme, very gentle on the eyes and not too "busy". I also enjoy the large font. My vision is fine but appreciate not having to over-focus my eyes on the screen and taking in more of the brightness than my cornea's probably would care for. Dislike: The long category side bar. Maybe shrink it down by converting it to a drop-down menu? Nothing has hit my inbox yet but I'm not too concerned about receiving anything..a response to my posting more than suffices : ) Bookmarking your I move forward with my new business next year I'll need all the help I can get! Thanks, Kevin
