I seldom read books, and I buy no books right after I graduate from university, except I bought a book name Free: The Future of a Radical Price by Chris Anderson.
Basically, this book share that business nowadays must provide a value for your audience FREE of charge, and in return get some return from them either for a long run or in the future. For example, a telco FREE a mobile phone for a user, in return tie a 12-month subscription plan from the user.
Well, based on the study, people will have an attitude that never takes action after learning from FREE as they feel nothing lost if they never execute what they had learned. What do you think? While based on my observation, it is kinda true! So are you sure you still want the FREE Digital Marketing Course? Or you are a person who prefers a paid Digital Marketing Course?
