Welcome back to On the Schmooze! This week, I’m reading the Introduction to my new book “Croissants vs. Bagels: Strategic, Effective, and Inclusive Networking at Conferences.” Download the Kindle book today – it’s free for a few more hours and then 99 cents the rest of this week (regularly $9.99).
The night before my book launch this past weekend, I was up late refreshing my Amazon page over and over again. I had set an audacious goal of 100 reviews before my public launch and was incredibly close to achieving it. The number of reviews remained at 94 now matter how many times I refreshed. Then I remembered that some of my team were posting on Amazon sites in their home countries. I found a list of these sites on Wikipedia and checked my book page on each one of them. I found 7 more reviews!
The number of reviews on Amazon.com is currently 125 and new reviews are posted regularly. I'd love you to read my book and write an honest review. My next goal is to reach 200 reviews.
My book even cracked the Top 100 Free list for a bit – was at #95 Monday morning! Huge thank you to the nearly 350 people on my launch team.
Get your free Kindle book at www.robbiesamuels.com/bookstore. The free promotion ends at 3 pm ET today and will be 99 cents the rest of this week. The paperback will be available in a few weeks (once the audiobook is done since the paperback includes a free audiobook).
I’m offering a special bonus bundle for the first 100 people who join my email list. The bonus bundle is all of the transcripts from the solo shows I recorded in my first year of podcasting. That’s 25 networking tips and techniques spelled out in detail with specific steps you can follow to help you achieve your success. Plus, quotes from my first 25 podcast guests – their answer to the question about how they define leadership. Their answers ranged from inspirational to cautious. I hope their wisdom and these networking tips help achieve your personal and professional goals.
