My IPOD Marketing Lesson

My IPOD Marketing Lesson

By John Jantsch

I know that way too much has been written about the already
Iconic IPOD, but I finally broke down a got my wife one for her
birthday and I now have a glimpse at what all the fuss is about.
(In case you’re thinking, like my kids, that buying it for my wife

ever imagined doing and communicate the benefits as simply
possible.
