I rarely ask for it, but I need help from someone smarter than me and that is all of you. I figure since Hannukah starts tonight, what better time to ask?

(They, whomever they is, always says hang out with people smarter than yourself.)

Here is the deal.

The day before Thanksgiving, I published: 10 Big Marketing Predictions For 2010

And thanks to all of you it went virally wild and was spread by everyone from Guy Kawasaki to a Governor in China (with over 625 Retweets which I think now have broken the RT button) and I appreciate it greatly.

My goal has been and will always be to be helpful to you: The entrepreneur, the small business owner, the marketer, the PR pro, the CMO, the expert, the author, the information junkie and even the big brands looking for ways to market your business and yourself LIKE an entrepreneur. Smarter. Faster. Cheaper. Hustling.

So I need a little help.

Over the next couple of weeks, before the new year, I plan on going into my writing cave and popping up with a unique E-book inspired by the predictions.

I can guarantee:

-A huge amount of hours to create something remarkable and worth spreading (in the words of Seth Godin).

-Expansion on the 10 predictions to include greater detail and ways to use the principles in your business big or small.

-Additional resources including top people to learn from online and in social media, key companies to pay attention to and other fun stuff.

-A video component built into the PDF (seriously, wait till you see this one).

I can also guarantee it will NOT contain:

-Too dense of material that takes hours to get through (I know we are all busy).

-Any BS of any kind including upselling to weird programs, sketchy Internet Marketing stuff or hooks to entice you to buy more stuff (There may or may not be an affiliate or two in there but they will be clearly marked and will only be pertinent to the E-Book and companies I use and trust).

This is my first “product” and I wouldn’t create it unless I feel like it will be 100% useful to you.

So, why should you care?

First, I really truly believe it is going to REALLY help your business and get your mind spinning with ideas and actionable items.

Second, you can have a hand in helping create it with your ideas (and I’ll make sure to give you credit in the E-book).

Here is where the help comes in.

1. How much should I charge (if at all)? I’m thinking $9.99. Would you pay $9.99? $14.99? As mentioned, this will have a video component as well built into the actual PDF and may have excerpts from some of my favorite interviews with folks like Chris Brogan and Gary Vaynerchuk plus original content from myself.

2. I’m thinking of creating an affiliate program. If you put it on your blog, website, etc. I will give you a unique link or promo code and you will get 50%. Would you be up for that and is that fair?

3. What would you like to see in the E-book? ALL ideas are more than welcome. I’m thinking of including expanded lists similar to these two popular ones from my blog:

35 Unique Entrepreneurs That Are Changing The Business World

25 Forward-Thinking Online Destinations Well Worth Your Time

4. What would the ideal title be? Should it be the same as the blog post? Or something different such as “Marketing In 2010: The Complete Playbook” or “The Ultimate 2010 Marketing Playbook”. If you come up with a killer title, you will get 100% credit in the E-book.

If you could, please take a couple of seconds to leave your comments/ideas or feel free to email me directly at David AT

The idea here is to spread an idea. Help people get it. Pass it on. Change marketing.

As usual, I’m more thankful for you to take the time to read this, comment and pass it on if you choose.
