You want to know the thing “they” (as in the people who told you it would be a good idea to write a book) don’t tell you when you write a book? They don’t tell you the hardest part isn’t writing it – it’s selling it. Getting people to buy your book is an ongoing process. A never-ending process.
On one hand it’s cool (okay, very cool) to say you’ve written a book (or a third book, but who’s counting?) It’s less cool to keep asking people to buy the book. I wrote the damn thing and sometimes I get tired of talking about it. (And let’s stop to consider that last statement because I talk for a living. I talk too much. And I’ve written three books on talking.)
I can only say, “Buy The Influential Conversationalist” so many times and in fairly straight-forward ways. It’s a good thing I’ve got friends like comedian Craig Gass. If you haven’t heard his name you’ve probably heard his impersonations, or maybe remember him in a certain Sex in the City episode. (Go head, look it up.)
I’m exceedingly thankful Craig can say “buy the book” in multiple ways. Take a look:
I’d be thrilled if you bought the book, but don’t do it just because Al Pacino, Christopher Walken or Adam Sandler said so. Buy it because it’s good, and because the strategies I share really will help raise your profile, increase your influence and help you be seen as a leader.
You want people to see how awesome and brilliant you are?
Well, it doesn’t happen by sitting at your desk, and hoping someone notices.
You’ve got to be able to communicate, talk to people and express your ideas. My book, The Influential Conversationalist can help with that.
I see this as a win-win. You buy the book and you win at conversations and I win at making a sale. So click the link, buy the book and start talking.
For the record no one talks like Jen Mueller. She’s thankful she talks for a living as a member of the Seattle Mariners television broadcast team and the Seattle Seahawks radio sideline reporter. But she’s most thankful for being able to help others, (like you and your team) find their voices, become more confident in daily interactions. She loves showing business professionals how to utilize the techniques she uses on TV and radio in business settings. Hire Jen for your next conference or training session. Jen@TalkSportytoMe.com
