Top 5 Business Article Authors 2006

Sat, 30 Dec 2006 13:08:08 GMT

Hi Folks

Instead of recording a 'Top 5 Business Articles' Podcast this week, I've decided to simply announce who is my optinion has been the top contributor to BuildYourOwnBusiness over the last year.

Listeners of last week's podcast will know that I've already announced the 5 authors who I believe have contributed the most to the BuildYourOwnBusiness website over the period.

The following business article authors aren't necessarily the top article producers by volume, but they are the authors in my opinion who have taken the time and effort to provide good quality business advice articles on a regular basis. These authors have been building a long-term relationship with readers, in the knowledge that the quality content that they publish will represent their brands extremely well for many years to come.

So many people suffer from Internet myopia. They beleive that all they need are links back to their website in order for them to be succesful online. The reality is however that operating a succesful online business isn't much different to operating a succesful offline business. Both require a good product or service, and both require good customer service. The follwing top 5 business article authors for 2006 recognise this and are in it for the long-term.

Top 5 BuildYourOwnBusiness Authors 2006

1st Place:
Jonathan Farrington
~ Specialist Subject: Sales Management ~ Personal Website: JonathanFarrington.com

2nd Place:
Bob Selden
~ Specialist Subject: General Business ~ Personal Website: NationalLearning.com.au

3rd Place:
Maria Gamb ~ Specialist Subject: Motivation ~ Personal Website: NoMoreSabbotage.com

4th Place:
Jeff Hardsey
~ Specialist Subject: Sales Management ~ Personal Website: ConvertMoreSales.com

5th Place:
Mike Teng ~ Specialist Subject: Change Management ~ Personal Website: CorporateTurnaroundExpert.com

Many thanks indeed to all the authors who have continued to make BuildYourOwnBusiness such a success in 2006. I look forward to the website becoming the undoubted number one business articles resource on the net in 2007!

Have a marvelous new year!

David Bain
