We love AppSumo. We love Ian Lurie. We generally speaking love Thursdays. And we love learning about common sense online marketing strategies that work. That is why today is pretty much our favorite day ever.

The folks over at AppSumo are selling a bundle of great Ian Lurie ebooks (normally like $51) for about exactly half of that – $25. Here is what’s included.

Conversation Marketing Ebook

Conversation Marketing introduces you to internet marketing strategy – not just web site design or search marketing, but how you tie it all together into a real money-making engine for your business.

Internet marketing intimidate you? Relax. You’re not alone. I’ve seen CEOs and marketing chiefs of Fortune 1000 companies reduced to damp rags by talk of search engines, return on investment, site design and the rest of the mish-mash that forms the online marketing world.

Conversation Marketing, the book, takes all the geekspeak and three letter acronyms and turns them into a common-sense internet marketing strategy.
