The past couple of weeks, I’ve pretty much focused on the launch of Sales Manager Survival Guide. In the first 24 hours after the release, the book hit the number 1 spot on Amazon’s “Hot New Books In Sales And Marketing.”
More importantly, I had committed to donating 100% of the profits from the sale of the book to Charity:Water. I don’t have a full accounting of sales yet, but so far we’ve raised just about $1700.
Don’t forget, from June1-August 31, I’ll be contributing 25% of the profits to Charity:Water, so you still have an opportunity to Get Smart and Do Good.
If you haven’t had a chance to get information about the book, there are a number of free resources, as well as comments about the book at the web site: Salesmanagersurvivalguide.com.
In the past couple of weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to participate in a couple of great podcasts:
Anthony Iannarino and I had a discussion about Front Line Sales Management in his In The Arena Podcast.
On a completely different tact, Will Barron at Salesman.Red and I had a discussion about Developing and Creating Value.
Reviews of the book are just starting to hit. Here are several:
