I’m going to have to be completely honest with you from the start here. Last December when Jason Baker of Digicate and Teri-Lyn Conrad of TLC Home let me in on the little secret of Jay Baer coming to town as part of The Now Revolution Book Tour… I said, ” Wow, that’s great!”…and thought, ” Oh Boy I best go find out who that is!” Off I went to check out Jay Baer’s Convince and Convert and Amber Naslund’s Brass Tack Thinking . I had no idea of the information that I was about to soak up as I checked in from time to time and followed them on Twitter. I finally landed here thinking that a sneak peek at the book and a chance to share a little about it on launch would be a great thing!
Long story short, the books were delayed in the weather and I finally got to pick up a couple of copies from Kemp Edmonds and get going. As soon as I looked on the back of the book and saw “The Praise for The Now Revolution” and that this book was “Praised” by the likes of Scott Stratten, Seth Godin and Chris Brogan I thought… who doesn’t want to check this out?!
I began my read full knowing that this was not a ‘How To’ book on Social Media and was immediately drawn in by the interaction required. You “Get More Than You Bargained For” right from the start. When you read The Now Revolution you need to get the gettag.mobi App. This book is packed with action that needs to be taken via this smart phone app in or you’ll be left in the dark on the extra juicy bits of examples that Jay and Amber use throughout the book!
“Now” gets going right from the start with idea that there is immediacy for all we do in business NOW. And gets you thinking NOW. I enjoyed the healthy thinking of how you view your business and best way to view and include your staff in what the authors call ” Engineering a New Bedrock.”
The Now Revolution arrives in Vancouver on Tuesday, February 15th! If you have yet to get your ticket, do so here . The evening includes a revolutionary presentation by Jay Baer and an informative panel discussion from Shane Gibson Co-Author of Guerilla Marketing: Social Media & Sociable, Mark Smiciklas Digital Strategist at DIG360 Consulting and Erin Garrity VP of Strategy and Interactive Content at Magnify Digital.
