Publisher's Summary

How to find the soft innovation that will make your product, service, school, church, or career worth talking about. 

We live in an era of too much noise, too much clutter, too many choices, and too much spam. And as Seth Godin's 200,000-copy best seller Purple Cow taught the business world, the old ways of marketing simply don't work anymore. The best way to sell anything these days is through word of mouth and the only real way to get word of mouth is to create something remarkable. 

Free Prize Inside, the sequel to Purple Cow, explains how to do just that. It's jammed with practical ideas you can use right now to make your product or service remarkable, so that it will virtually sell itself. 

Remember when cereal came with a free prize inside? Even if you already liked the cereal, it was the little plastic toy that made it irresistible. Godin explains how you can think of a bonus that will make your customers feel just as excited, no matter what business you're in. Consider these free prizes:

  • The Tupperware party, which turned buying plastic bowls into a social event
  • Flintstones vitamins, which turned a serious product into something fun
  • The free change-counting machine at every Commerce Bank branch
  • The little blue box from Tiffany, which makes people happy before they even open it 

This book offers a way to create free prizes quickly, cheaply, and reliably and persuade others in your organization to help you bring them to life.

Critic Reviews

"Buy this book and use Godin's ideas to remake yourself, your product, or your company. Then pass it on to your boss or your employees. Tell them they've just won a free prize." (Jean Briggs, Forbes)

"Godin is endlessly curious, opinionated, and knowledgeable on a wide variety of subjects. He is a relentless marketer...and also a clear-eyed visionary with strong and sensible ideas on how the new economy can, should, and will function." (Richard Pachter, Miami Herald

"Godin makes the case for 'soft innovation' as the best way to grow a business, instead of relying on big ads or big innovation. He says that anyone can think up clever, useful, and small ideas to make a product or service remarkable, that is, worth talking about. He calls this kind of innovation a free prize because it generates much more revenue than it costs to implement." (Management Consulting News

Very practical

As engaging as the Purple Cow but definitely more actionable and practical. loved the examples of "going to the edge" towards the end too.

I love Seth’s books

I love Seth’s books and while they all travel along the same line, for a reason, I always get something out of them.

Short but Valuable

Most business books take too long to say something. This book is refreshingly direct. Best read Purple Cow first though to get the most out of it.
