Now he turns to the mystery of influence, and offers a new take on this key force that drives any successful business or personal interaction.

Selling the dream : how to promote your product, company, or ideas, and make a difference, using everyday evangelism by Guy Kawasaki( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guy Kawasaki's phenomenal success at Apple Computer and as a start-up entrepreneur was the result of an innovative approach to sales, marketing, and management called evangelism. Evangelism means convincing people to believe in your product or ideas as much as you do, by using fervor, zeal, guts, and cunning to mobilize your customers and staff into becoming as passionate about a cause as you are. Selling the Dream is a handbook and workbook for putting evangelism into action. Kawasaki charts a complete blueprint for the beginning evangelist that covers such topics as how to define a cause (whether it is a business, like Windham Hill Records or the Body Shop, or a public interest concern, like the National Audubon Society or Mothers Against Drunk Driving), how to identify good and bad enemies, how to deliver an effective presentation, and how to find, train, and recruit new evangelists. One of the highlights of the book is a short course in developing an evangelistic business plan, illustrated by the complete, original Macintosh Product Introduction Plan

APE, author, publisher, entrepreneur by Guy Kawasaki( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2011 the publisher of Guy Kawasaki's New York Times bestseller, Enchantment, could not fill an order for 500 ebook copies of the book. Because of this experience, Guy self-published his next book, What the Plus! and learned first-hand that self-publishing is a complex, confusing, and idiosyncratic process. As Steve Jobs said, 'There must be a better way.' With Shawn Welch, a tech wizard, Guy wrote APE to help people take control of their writing careers by publishing their books. The thesis of APE is simple but powerful: When a self-publisher successfully fills three roles--author, publisher and entrepreneur--the potential benefits are greater than with traditional publishing."--Cover

"L'objectif de ce livre est de vous permettre d'optimiser votre utilisation des médias sociaux. Nous partons du principe que vous connaissez les bases et que vous souhaitez faire un usage professionnel des médias sociaux, pour votre propre compte ou pour celui d'une entreprise. Que les choses soient claires, Peg et moi sommes sur le front des médias sociaux et non enfermés au siège d'une entreprise dans une 'cellule de crise'. Nous avons acquis nos connaissances à force d'expérimentation, d'efforts assidus, et non pas en pontifiant, en énonçant des sophismes ou en nous contentant de participer à des conférences. Il y a plus d'une centaine de conseils et d'astuces dans ce guide. Nous sommes des gens pragmatiques, ce livre ne contient donc que des conseils stratégiques et pratiques." [Source : 4e de couv.]
