C'mon Ecademy, let's make Robert Craven A Best-Selling Author

Loads of people have responded with kind words to my blog about Robert Craven's book Grow Your Service Firm.

Great but ...

Did you buy the book? That was my point.

There is so much rubbish out there on the market so when you find a decent book, that's well written, well executed and it works, maybe you should buy it.

Buy two copies because everyone of you has someone you know who needs this book.

Ecademy from what I've seen benefits incredibly from the value Rob delivers to this community on a daily basis.

He's written a good book worth buying. I've tried some of the ideas and they work IF you do what he says.

So buy his book. Let's make Rob a best selling author.

You can get it from Amazon or go via my link if you want to Click here for Rob's book

Hi Andrew, I just wanted to relight this flame momentarily. My book Bright Marketing is on sale in the Amazon Kindle store this week for just £1.29! This is an introductory price due to its launch on the Kindle and won't be around for long. However it has shot up to #17 on the Kindle charts!! Buy a copy and let's see how far it can rise... RC

Well here's what happened. Rob sold some books. Great. A lot of people said they liked the fact that we got behind an Ecademy member. Some didn't. I made some new friends on Ecademy. Great outcome.

Gordon, right now you can BUY Roberts book for £7.68 on Amazon, that's why I said buy TWO copies. You'll need to read it again, anyway.

For the record. 1. Read a book. Liked it. Used it. Got very good results. Blogged about it. 2.Believe it or not I did not know Robert Craven or even that Robert Craven was an Ecademy member. I had picked up a copy in the Adam Street library, liked it and bought my own copy. I thought that this was a good book for businesses right now in this economy and blogged about it. And initially, I wanted to support a British author. 3. I rarely endorse anything no matter how good it is. 4. Then I found out Rob is an Ecademy member so I wrote a second blog. 5. I have observed that a lot of people on Ecademy say nice things and say they are supportive - I thought here is an opportunity to see if Ecademy would support an Ecadey member. In this case I was excited so see if Ecademy could make one of its members a best selling author. 5. Anyone at anytime can choose to review a book they like - ecademy member or not. *** I have received emails saying that this is wrong to expect Ecademy members to buy a £15 book. When I consult I challenge my clients to get 10 times their investment back on anything they purchase for the business. So that's £150. I believe that if you can't get ONE idea worth £150 from this book you don't have a business bone in you or you're not trying. One of my clients turned one insight into a £25000 offering (admittedly with a coaching discussion). If you are concerned about the price you can buy Robert's book for £7.68. If you want to make Rob a best seller buy it off Amazon on Monday 13th. Rob only needs a few sales on one day to light up the Amazon board. Technically that makes him a 'bestselling' author! Hope that clarifies. Lastly, stay with my spirit of intent here. I chose to blog about a good business book I read and wanted to recommend it to Ecademy members.. Secondly, when I discovered Rob is an Ecademy member, I wondered if Ecademy could make him a bestseller. Right or wrong I am very happy to endorse this book because it works. (The bit I should clarify is this: it works because you work it. Rob would probably say his ideas don't work unless you work them.)

Robert you are very welcome. I honestly do not endorse many things. You and I chatted the other day and what I said was true. I road tested a couple of chapters real time with some clients and the results were great (as I stated). I also wanted to test just how supportive Ecademy is of its own. The kicker here is that the book is a half decent effort that delivers so its a no brainer to support you. Rob I had someone email me and say what was I getting from all of this and my answer was an experiment in community. They said, "£15!!!" For goodness sake if they click through my link its available for £7.68. Someone CAN buy two copies at that price. But honestly if someone can't find a £150 idea from reading your book they shouldn't be in business. And that also is the reason they need to buy your book and talk to you ... (or me, of course!) I also encourage people - if you are considering the book purchase - to buy on Monday 13th August and via Amazon because that way it shows up technically as a best selling day which makes it technically a best seller! Ultimately, I want Ecademy to walk the talk. We all want business. Thomas told me a great secret three years ago. The secret to Ecademy is to buy or support your Ecademy community ... first. Thomas you'll recall said relate then transact. In this case, the book happens to be worth supporting. I am happy to be a champion. Its on my web site as a favoured resource. My plan is to retire on the clip of course! Robert, happy to back your effort, but honestly, worth backing came first.

And yet the power of community actually is not as strong as led to think. People still buy what they are interested in. Shame really imagine the strength we could have if we all pulled together and marched in one direction. Come on folks support Robert and while you are there buy mine Diary of a Fortune Hunter :) (think thats my first plug on here) L

I've followed and been a fan of Robert's since kick start your business and his seminars in the late 90's. As soon as he emailed me about this book I ordered it and was not disappointed. This has prompted me to pick the book up again and start working through it again. I can't thank Robert enough. He is the one person I would love to come and work with us in growing the business.

James, I am supporting Rob because they book works. But I am now very keen to see what Ecademy can do to demonstrate that it DOES support its own. This is one way to make Robert Craven a best selling author. Buy his book Grow Your Service Firm off Amazon on Monday 13 August. The link is Grow Your Service Firm You can buy it direct from Rob of course and he will sell copies, but Amazon gives him a very public and worldwide gong. If you buy on that day, it registers doubly. Rob doesn't need thousands of sales. He just needs a significant number of sales in a very short period of time. I am sure that we can convince Robert to give an hour long webinar just for those people who buy the book. Your receipt might serve as your ticket, for example. Someone asked why am I doing this? 1. Rob is an Ecademy member who delivers a lot of value to our community so lets support him. 2. I want to see the power of our community in ACTION. What can we do when we decide? 3. There's a lot of nice talk on Ecademy. I want to see Ecademy shift a gear from talk to walk. Butimportantly 4. Its a good book and if you can't get one idea worth £150 from this book you really are in trouble. That's the plan. Lets do a Team Ecademy. Monday 13th August. £15. Webinar ticket. I am very sure you'll get more than £15 worth of ideas from Robert.

Great idea, Andrew, but if anyone here really wants to help Robert, tell them to go that one step further and put a favourable review up there on the sales site after they've read it - not somewhere else. Favourable reviews on the site (5 approx.) do help to sell a book. Best of luck with it, Robert, I'll pop over and have a look. Not qualified to write a review, unfortunately. Not on matters of business. But at least I can give it a Like. POP OVER THERE, FELLAS, AND LIKE ROBERT'S BOOK, EVEN IF YOU DON'T BUY IT! DdeV

Andrew .......

some of us have known Robert for a long time before he became active on Ecademy, and I have bought his books, attended his courses and benefited enormously from his wisdom, and still do today. Laurence

One of my hobbies (along side collecting domain names) is reading Business Books. Honestly... most of them are shelf-filling pulp. Unlike this book. Read it. Implement. Grow your Business. Simples.
