“Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them at all.”
– Henry David Thoreau
You don’t need to consume hundreds of books or read “a book a day” to be a successful internet entrepreneur. You just need to read the right ones. While most business books and marketing books cover just one concept with a few hundred pages wrapped around it to reinforce that same concept, the books listed below are the few that were most helpful for very specific areas of starting, building, and growing an online business and being an effective marketer.
Surprisingly, there are very few books specifically on internet marketing that are helpful, as many do not cover the actual “how-to’s” and “A to Z” of marketing and building an online business. Below are books that deliver highly pragmatic advice that can be applied to your internet business immediately.
My favorite thing about the books listed below is that the authors made their fortunes through online businesses (not real estate investing, stock trading, or becoming CEO of an already-establish company). Because of that, their writing is a lot more relatable to up-and-coming, in-the-trenches, and already-established internet entrepreneurs.
