Summary

A manifesto of business practices for those who sell ideas and advice, The Win Without Pitching Manifesto lays out 12 steps - in the form of proclamations - that owners of creative businesses can take to distance themselves from their competition, regain the high ground in their client relationships and learn to win business without first parting with their thinking or writing lengthy proposals. The 12 proclamations were written to inspire owners of independent creative businesses (e.g.: design firms and advertising agencies) to rethink how their services are bought and sold. Anyone who sells ideas or advice will find relevance in these teachings.

strong & concise 👌

Very strong reasoning and logic behind the approach described in this book.

I have found using the analogies and mental models discribed in this manifesto, can really help in convincing colleagues and team members, to adopt a premium service approach to creative services.

Foundational, fundamental, irreplaceably invaluable. Insightfully elucidated by way of a great voice over talent. Recommend!

Game changing

This book is a game changer... so much more than just another "how to" book.

Even Better as Audio

Shannyn. Thanks for being the voice of reason on my way to/from work. I've been listening to the WWP audio book and wow even better than when I read the book. Blair was right - Shannyn was the right choice. Right tone, speed and command to the text. Thanks for bringing the book alive in a new way. I've heard new things and picked up more insights by truly listening. And of course the book is great too!

Thanks for producing an audio version. 5 star!

Must read/listen for all Creative Professionals

It's short, decisive, and highly impactful. it's definitely not a strategy for everyone in the field, but there are universally relevant ideas to be drawn from it.

Insightful and Accurate

What a time to be alive as a creator!!! I love the articulation of various scenarios in the book that are eye opening and that convey frequent "Aha" moments, can't wait to apply these proclamations on my first few prospects. Quantity of clients isn't necessary but he quality is!!! PS: I'll use all the proceeds from the knowledge gained to purchase the sequel, "Pricing Creativity"

Amazing book

Thoughtful and life changing. I thought I had a wrap on my mindset when it comes to pricing my services... now I actually do.
