Jim Kukral is the master at getting attention.

I remember when BlogRush had the entire blogging community in a tizzy. Jim jumped on the overhyped-widget-bandwagon and grabbed thousands of email sign-ups for his alternative “BlogBucks” service. BlogBucks promised untold riches but ended up being nothing more than a spoof. Jim deleted all the subscribers but in just a couple of days proved that he was the master at gaining Attention!

If I listed out every instance of Jim’s ability to get you to “click” then we’d be here all day. Instead, how about we just give away 3 copies of Jim Kukral’s awesome new book Attention! and you can see for yourself?

Filled with case studies and real-world examples, Jim explains strategies and techniques, including:

  • Creating a compelling hook
  • Maintaining a good brand name online
  • Going from idea to success in eight hours
  • Twenty-six ways to generate killer ideas
  • Three truths for coming up with great ideas
  • Making money from online videos
  • Making money from social media
  • Getting and keeping subscribers
  • The universal truths of selling on the Web

Don’t leave your homepage without it!

  • Jason Murphy

    I know Jim and actually live in the same city as him (Cleveland, OH). I’ve had mixed feelings for the guy, sometimes I find value, other times I find a lot of hype.

    If I won, I’d provide an honest review and endorsement from a fellow social and digital marketing professional who knows the underground and real world approaches to marketing online.


    • Jim Kukral

      Jason, just called you. :) Thanks for the chat.

    • Jim Kukral

      No need to win. I just put a copy of it in your mailbox an hour ago. :) Hopefully you’ll change your opinion of me. :)

      • Jim Kukral Read This

        Jim seems like a pretty down to earth guy. Let’s just see if he actually pays attention 😉

        • Jim Kukral

          Ask Jason if I’m paying attention :)

  • Simon Lilly

    > Love the idea behind > This book < Hopefully the competition to win a copy isn't a spoof as well <

    • Jim Kukral

      Lol, no spoof. The winners were sent books today!

  • Jim Banks

    If the book only had ukulele sheet music in it…..

    Good job Jim, I was going to buy a copy and get you to sign it at ASE for me, but sadly I won’t be there. I’ll have to make do with a summer in Cyprus instead.

    I’m particularly impressed with the launch sequence you are putting yourself through, it only endorses what I am sure the book is all about.

  • Alex P

    I’d love to read this book!

  • Hasmukh

    Honestly, commentig just because of the book.

  • PAUL

    • Jim Kukral

  • Jeroen

  • Jordan

    I NEED this book. I’m currently in an upstart phase for a new company. The bullet points from the description hit me like a bullet to the head – those are the challenges I face. Anyway, looks like a killer book. Would be honored to win (or buy) a copy. :) (would be glad to give the book creds when the company booms 😉 )

    • Jim Kukral

      If you didn’t win you should consider getting a copy anyway, or a digital download. This book WILL help you. I promise you.

  • Kathy at Twitter Power Tool

    Oh no! Just what I need — another book to add to pile.

    But I can’t resist. So…
