Summary

Kick off the cycle of success with serious self-promotion that works. Book Yourself Solid is a handbook for self-promotion that translates into results. 

We tend to think of "busy" as the equivalent of "successful" - but that's not always the case. The key lies in what you're busy doing. Success means spending your time doing work that gets you closer to your goals, and the critical driving force behind that success is self-promotion. This audiobook shows you how to promote more than just your skills - you need to sell your reputation, your service, your very self. It starts with laying a foundation so potential clients know you can give them what they want and need. 

How do people see you, and how does that diverge from what you would like them to think? Once you know where you are, you can map out a plan for getting where you need to be, and this audiobook shows you how to build the reputation you need to be the go-to person in your field - and keep the business coming in long term.  

Book Yourself Solid has been one of the most popular marketing guides in the world for service-based businesses since its initial release in 2006. This new third edition includes updated and expanded strategies, techniques, and skills to help you get more clients and increase your take-home profits.  

  • Build a solid foundation for a stellar public image 
  • Enhance your reputation for trust and credibility 
  • Perfect your pitch and pricing to attract higher-caliber clients 
  • Adopt the six core strategies that will keep you booked solid 

Spending just a small amount of time on self-promotion is an investment. You build a reputation that attracts high-quality clients, which boosts your profits, your track record, and your reputation, which in turn attracts even more high-quality clients. Book Yourself Solid shows you how to kick off this cycle of success and maintain it for the long term.

Boring, self promoting, outdated

It’s ok, some useful tips, but at least 80% not ok for the reasons I’ve put in the title of this review.

Packed with incredible tips

I was recommended this book during a course I enrolled to. Was sceptical however as soon as I started listening to it I realised it was absolutely what I needed whilst launching my interior design business. I would recommend this book to anyone who doesn’t have a clue how to start a business. I am now going to do all the exercises and I’m sure my profits will substantially increase. Or I hope so!

One of the best.

Simply, one of the best and most useful audiobooks in my arsenal. I've listened to this at least 4 times now.

Chapter 1: The Red Velvet Rope Policy

This is a most incredible book, and I've only heard Chapter 1. The Red Velvet Rope Policy. I've implemented this. And in the past six months my life has changed so much that I haven't had time to listen to the rest of the book. Maybe one chapter a year is enough to fly, if you implement it. Recommended. Thanks Michael for porting me into another universe.

A great book on building business relationships

I read the book along with the Audible version, and worked the exercises. It helped put a lot of what I have been doing into a different light. I now have a new blueprint for 2019.

Lot of info

The book was very comprehensive and a lot to take in. There's a lot of good useful information in here and I would have to listen to this multiple times to digest it all. Tried to retain a few nuggets here and there.

Solid advice. Very easy to follow & implement

step by step easy to follow guide that provides excellent coaching for both aspiring speakers and veteran speakers whi can use some fine tuning. Take notes and be certain bookmark key points. Even if you follow half of what is in the book, you'll probably be light years ahead of where you are now.

Motivating and practical

I’m currently building my business from scratch, and this was so helpful to understand how I can get in front of and land my perfect clients. So value-packed I’ll probably buy the physical book to dive deep in it again.

AMAZING BOOK!!!

I don’t have enough space here to tell you how amazing this book is and how much I recommend it! With many years of experience in high ticket sales, and tens of thousands of dollars in social media marketing courses, I wish I would have found this book years ago!
And even with my previous knowledge, not only did I learn so much, I believe that anyone, even no I es in sales or marketing, willing to put into action what has been laid out in this book, will be extremely successful in their endeavors!...
