Seth Godin On Last Weeks ShoeMoney Show

Posted by



If you missed it live last Thursday my guest on the ShoeMoney show was Seth Godin. Seth was a great interview and had some very interesting viewpoints.

We talked about a lot of things going on in the world of marketing. Even touched on the recent FTC activity with affiliate marketers.

    Not to comment hijack, but while this Seth scoop is (typically) Tier 1 content here, the real breaking news is the Google Adwords story – I realize that since litigation is involved, you may not really be at ease to write about it (unless I missed an article?)

    That said, I’m sure we would love to read that pending story from your POV. :)

    I have to honestly say that before today I’ve never thought of Seth Godin. I wander if he ever went back to that teacher to show him/her that he actually did make something of himself.

      I definately agree that he is an IM genious. Though he was not one to inspire me. I found out about him long after starting my own blog.

      Go Seth!

    I just ordered two Seth books on Amazon – always wanted to get them but just needed one more reminder and here it was.

    Loved interview until the Ayn Rand cheap shot. You mentioned the iframes problem as an example of why we need government, yet it was private enterprise (your company fixed it in 24 hours and search engines re-adjusted within 6 months) that addressed that problem dramatically more efficiently than any government proposed solution ever for anything. Watch your logic.

        Hate to leave you thinking I’m mixed up. Let me try again.

        This quote by Seth in your interview was an unfair insult to Ayn Rand and her fans: “In Ayn Rand’s world there are no anonymous people.” Implying, and paraphrasing, “that’s why we need government in the real world.”

        We Rand fans would say that anonymous people of course exist, but businesses generally deal with anonymous people much better than the government. And Seth’s story about anonymous bad actors using iframes on squidoo was a perfect example. Squido and Google fixed the problem much faster than government ever could.

        This is why I expect more improvement to come from companies (ISPs, search engines, web publishers, etc.) – even in the area of fighting scammers and spammers – than I ever expect to come from government.

        1. Jeremy Schoemaker

          Ahh I see what you are saying now. I did not understand that you were interpreting Seth saying he wishes there was no anonymous people to meaning we need government intervention.

          I have to tell you I dont have near the attention that seth has but thinking about a world where nobody could be anonymous and people would have to own up to what they say everywhere they say it sounds nice to me at first… but thats just so I can track down weasel keyboard warriors.

          You have a interesting view point.

    Great work Shoe. I understand this may be way too much trouble, but is it possible to transcribe your shows? I only ask because I read a lot faster than I listen, and if there are others like me out there, this could be a huge timesaver.

    If it’s too much of a hassle, no worries :)

    What’s the deal with all the keyword stuffed usernames on this blog?

    That being said, what is your guys opinion about the economy and recession? Maybe the banks do need to be bailed out.

  11. Rick Vaughn

    Good Stuff!

    I have read some of Seth’s books and certainly have to respect his opinions. Makes a good point about government intervention but there is a fine line I wish not crossed.

    I agree that the internet needs to be regulated more and more since we are going to it more and more for our everyday information as well as products. The purple cow thing was different but it sounded like that idea sounds like it would work.

  14. Andy Cook

    I wrote Seth and email about Unleashing the Ideavirus about six months ago, and he responded to me with a few hours too. He’s great

    Awesome interview Jeremy! It was really sincere and you asked really real questions.

    Je suis d’accord que l’Internet doit être réglementée plus en plus puisque nous allons de plus en plus pour notre information quotidienne ainsi que des produits. La chose la vache mauve était différent, mais ça sonnait comme cette idée ressemble à cela fonctionnerait.

    That is the proper weblog for anyone who needs to search out out about this topic. You realize a lot its virtually arduous to argue with you (not that I actually would need…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, just great!
