Starting a Yahoo Business For Dummies
1 April 2006, greg @ 10:12 am

Here is a new book written by our friend Rob Snell. We are eagerly anticipating receiving our copy of “Starting a Yahoo Business For Dummies“. Rob has taken many stores from $0 to well over a million in annual sales, so he knows what he is talking about. Rob had shared many, many tidbits of his knowledge and experience with us over the years and we are extremely grateful for that.

If you are the owner of a Yahoo! Store, you need to buy this book.

If you have read Rob’s book, tell me what you think of it.
