Do you have the book?
If so, we want you to get the most from it.
If you have the book and registered for our gifts, you may have already gotten an email invitation from Kevin to our upcoming teleseminar.
On Monday, you can join Kevin and Guy to learn "How to Get the Most From Your Book." This teleseminar is free to anyone who has purchased the book. Your email from Kevin contains information about how to call in.
Once the teleseminar is over, we'll post the recording in our community. We hope, though, that you'll join us live if your schedule allows to interact with us and ask questions.
The teleseminar will be on Monday, February 28 at 8 pm EST.
If you don't have the book, we hope you will buy your copies in the next two days to take advantage of our great gifts. We are still offering a wide range of gifts when you buy our book, including free e-books, audio content, assessments, and more. When you buy, you will also be entered into our drawings to win even more gifts including a Kindle.
Our gift offer ends tomorrow, so we hope you will act now to buy your books. Once you do, you'll get the inside information about how to join our teleseminar so you can get the most from your book.
We look forward to "seeing" you at the teleseminar! Questions? Feel free to email me.
Yesterday was a tremendous day for our team.
Many bloggers posted book reviews, guest posts, and interviews to help us #buildthebuzz.
A few people have asked me about our reaction to the launch.
Here are a few thoughts:
From Bud to Boss has been one of the top ten leadership books on Amazon since mid-day yesterday. We're at #1 on the leadership hot new releases. We're ranked high overall on Amazon and in the top 100 books at bn.com. It's obvious that the work that we're all doing (our team, the group of bloggers supporting the launch, our partners) is paying off.
We're excited about all that, and our excitement is about more than just one day. We want to build momentum for our book and share the message about it so that we can make a difference for more leaders all over the world. This is about much more than selling a lot of books (though we certainly hope to do that.) We know that selling books is a precursor to furthering our mission to help leaders grow and develop.
All of that started yesterday will continue from here. Throughout the rest of this week, our gift offers will be open. We're still working with more bloggers and partners.
It's not to late to take advantage of all we are offering to celebrate the launch. We have especially great incentives for people who buy our book in bulk. We hope you will choose to buy multiple copies to give to people in your organization who are transitioning to leadership.
We would not be here without you. One of my tasks today is adding all the buzz from our bloggers to the buzz page on our main website. When I look at that page, I am overwhelmed by the enormity of the list. So many of you have so generously highlighted our work.
The combined effort of over 100 bloggers has fueled the excitement for our launch. You have helped to spread the word about our book to the people in your circles of influence. It's amazing, and I can't thank you enough.
We hope you'll continue to #buildthebuzz throughout the rest of this week. Our launch is just beginning, our mission continues.
We've been preparing for this day for months and counting down in this space for weeks... and now, our day is here.
Today, we celebrate! Yesterday, I told you about all the great gifts we're offering to people who buy books today. Today, I hope you'll join me in spreading the word about our launch. And, I hope you'll by your copy (or copies) of the book to take advantage of the great gifts we've gathered.
You might not have seen two posts I added yesterday to make it easy for you to help us. I created a new list of tweets for today and I compiled a list of some easy ways you can help us on Facebook. I hope you'll use my ideas, add your own, and help us #buildthebuzz.
Help us spread the word about this fantastic new book from Kevin Eikenberry and Guy Harris. Your friends will thank you, because this book will help them wherever they are in their journey as leaders. The most important link you can share with people about our launch is http://:www.frombudtoboss.com.
Thanks in advance for all you will do to make today a REMARKABLE celebration. #buildthebuzz
With only one day left, we hope you're ready to celebrate with us.
The best celebrations include gifts, right? We've got plenty of gifts prepared for people who buy our book on launch day. Because you're interested in leadership, we've asked other leadership experts to partner with us. As a result, we have an impressive list of resources from these experts available to you when you buy our book. When you buy multiple copies, you will be able to access even more gifts.These gifts include exclusive e-books, audio content and more. When you buy a book, we'll even enter you into a drawing for a chance to win other gifts, including a Kindle (loaded with From Bud to Boss and Remarkable Leadership.)
Starting tomorrow, when you visit our book website, you will see a splash page that will take you to a our gift site. That site contains information about all the gifts you will receive when you buy the book. The gifts are available for a limited time. Right now, I can tell you that they will be up through Wednesday and possibly all the way until Friday. You'll want to buy your copies of the book as soon as you can if you want to make sure the gifts are still there.
The buzz is building and we're glad that you are joining us for the celebration. We hope you'll invite all your friends, fans, and followers to celebrate with us! When you tweet about the launch, please remember to use the hashtag #buildthebuzz so we can easily RT you and track all the buzz!
With two days left until the launch of the book, I thought I would share two blogs posts, one by each author, with their thoughts about the launch process.
First, from Guy Harris, "The Launch is Almost Here." I am continually impressed by Guy: in the midst of all this launch stuff, he consistently, as the stealth warrior, gets a lot of stuff done. Just this week, I woke up one morning to see that he had redesigned his own blog to get ready for the launch. He's amazing, and I feel blessed to work with him.
And, from Kevin Eikenberry "Five Leadership Lessons from Our Book Launch." These are great lessons for any leader, and I hope you will check them out if you haven't already. Kevin is tirelessly preparing for this launch, and his energy and perseverance inspire me.
Two days, two authors, two great posts. Enjoy, and join us tomorrow as we move closer to launch day. #buildthebuzz!
