Happy Birthday, Phineas!
How would you handle your marketing without the Internet?
Or the telephone?
Or any of the other bells and whistles we all take for granted these days?
How would you handle your business if all you had was -- your own creativity?
One man left us the answer.
He lived in the 1800s and used his wits to create an empire that is still alive and well today.
He was such a marketing genius that he made an unknown little boy the world's first superstar.
His peers called him the "Shakespeare of Advertising."
His friends called him "Reverend."
He was so confident that his marketing ideas would work for you and me, that he made this promise on his deathbed --
"If you faithfully follow my methods, you cannot fail."
His methods were fun, practical, creative, and proven to get results.
He impressed President Abraham Lincoln, as well as Kings and Queens.
He knew Mark Twain, and almost wrote a book with him.
He was so famous that a letter addressed with nothing but his last name on it would still make it to his mansion.
I'm talking about P.T. Barnum.
Today is P.T. Barnum's birthday.
Today he is giving gifts to anyone who buys a copy of my book about him, There's A Customer Born Every Minute.
Everyone in business needs this. If you Barnumize your business just a little, you can stand out from the crowd.
Barnum used his ten business secrets to turn unknown little boys into mega-rich superstars, and to promote everything from mermaids to opera singers.
He never said, "There's a sucker born every minute."
Give the guy some respect.
Learn from his wisdom.
Get the book today.
Happy Birthday, Phineas Taylor Barnum!
