Ask. by Ryan Levesque. I finished this book in less than 2 days. I was so interested in the content and I literally couldn’t put it down. The first half talks about his story and the second half explains the “Ask Formula” that he’s developed. It’s basically about asking questions to prospects, getting them into a really advanced sales funnel, and then transitioning them into customers through a series of surveys and stories. But it’s all about asking the right questions, which most businesses don’t do, which means they think they know what customers want when they actually don’t. So if this sounds interesting to you, go check it out at here!
Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook by Gary Vaynerchuk. The second book is by one of my favorite entrepreneurs and this is his 3rd book. I’ve talked about his first book before called Crush It!, and I have his second book on my Amazon Wishlist called The Thank You Economy, and now I just started reading this one a couple days ago. It’s all about how to tell your story in a noisy social world. The title of the book means that, just like boxing, you want to throw a few small punches before you throw the big knockout punch. So that means a few subtle soft sells then a more direct sell. It’s about building trust with your community and speaking the native language for each individual social media platform. I’ll have this book done in a few days and I’ll be anxiously awaiting his next book which is due out in March. But if you want to grab this book and really ramp up your social media strategy, just visit this link now!
