Thanks to all of you, The Startup Playbook has been selling like gangbusters. We passed 4,000 books sold in the month since the book was released. Putting this in perspective, the average business book these days sells about 1,000 copies in its first three months! But we want many more people to get their hands on the book. One of the best things we can do to expand its reach is to get more reviews of the book on Amazon. More reviews makes for a higher ranking and more visibility for the book. So, to get more reviews, we’re offering a special bonus, free startup advising.
For every five people who write a verified Amazon review in the next two weeks (by April 4) – that is, you buy the book and write a short review on Amazon – we’re going to select one person from all reviewers and offer an hour of free startup advising via Skype, Hangouts, phone, or whatever works best for you and your team. All you have to do is buy the book, write a brief review and you’ll be entered into the drawing. Again, we’ll choose one for every five reviews written. If 10 people write reviews, we’ll select 2 reviewers for free advising. If 50 people write reviews, 10 names will be chosen for free advising. Easy shmeazy, right?
We’ll listen to your pitch, give you pointers on refining your idea, answer questions about how to get funding, give you advice on building your team or just help you get perspective on the issues you’re facing this week.
What we’re hearing is that the book is full of great information and is super easy to read. We couldn’t be happier with the feedback since that was exactly what we were trying to create. Our goal was to make the information approachable in a founder-to-founder discussion. We want to help you shift the odds of startup success in your favor.
Many of you have already purchased the book and written a review. For that, we’re incredibly appreciative. If you haven’t gotten one and you’re thinking of starting a company, please consider it. Either way, please share this message with others – just click on one of the social buttons below. We’d love to spread the word and have as many people in the startup community as possible have access to the book and to us!
Note: For confidentiality, we will not rummage through your Amazon profile to find your contact information. When you finish your review, just drop us a email with your name on Amazon so we can associate the review with your email address. Send it to admin at startup-playbook.com. We’re looking forward to chatting about your startup!
