Being relatively new to the world of Network Marketing it has given me a brilliant start, there is definitely something for everyone and I'm sure it would be realistic to say that some ideas we will use and some we won't - given our own unique personality styles.
In a relatively short space of time I have become more confident at both Networking and Public Speaking and put this down largely to the many tips and suggestions given in the book, and then obviously getting out there and practising them.
The anecdotes are excellent and I feel that Andy and Peter between them both, have certainly captured and in turn given to us readers, the basic recipe for successful Networking. It's definitely one of my many books that will be read over and over.....
Andy Lopata and Peter Roper have written a really handy book on how to achieve this. Now, let me state that I know both of the authors and they have the creditinals to write on this subject.
What I liked about this book was
* it's easy to read
* full of practical advice and
* a great motivator to get out there and do it.
So if winning new clients depends on networking and speaking..then order yout copy today.
Reading this book has definitely improved that way I network with people and I am seeing the results already.
and "Death Came Third" gives both professional and novice speakers hundreds of tips and ideas that make the preparation and delivery that turns a good talk into a brilliant one.
I recommend this book without question.
"How to fill a room with your customers and how to get your message to everyone."
And death came third is the rare and welcome fusion of practical insights and solid science theory. Most books I have read in this field are patronising, forgettable and faddish. But this book provides Techniques, Tips and Tools which means that you are equipped to get the best out of yourself and the best out of your relationships.
It confirms what we all know to be true......to enjoy sustained success ..........- "you are only as good as your network". It is easy to read, it is informative. Every page has that wonderful "ahaa" that I personally love so much like when the final piece in a jigsaw falls into place.
It is a must read book for anyone who wants to to get ahead and stay ahead in business.
This is the only book that i will recommend to people I care about - my customers, my colleagues, my friends and my family.
I hope my competitors are too busy chasing their tails to read it !!!
Because people are unpredictable, so markets are unpredictable, so marketing products and services is unpredictable.
Marketing is the one outstanding area of business in which money spent often produces little or no return. Networking is a marketing tool and strategy that, properly used, can not only keep a company in business but can actually dramatically improve the results that company achieves.
I cannot impress enough upon anyone thinking of starting in business or a new career how important it is that they get a copy of "...and Death Came Third" AND ACTUALLY READ IT!
Andy and Peter's approach for what it takes to make networking a viable and working strategy for you is absolutely spot on from the first three tips to the section on speaking in public.
If you diligently follow the advice given by these two seasoned networkers, you will be able to build a network of contacts, associates and friends around you that will help you personally, professionally, financially, socially and emotionally through the ups and downs of business life.
Get it today.
Follow this book and you will be able to. It will change your life. It's an ABC manual to take you to the next level and all the way to the top with your neworking abilities and your personal or company's presentation. It's appropriate for everyone, from clergymen to medical/health professionals, insurance consultants to media salesmen, and network marketers to CEO's. It's a cracking good read. And it's full of wisdom, how to's, examples and common sense. Everyone needs to read and re-read this well written book. It has the inside knowledge to take you to that new level and build on your confidence to perfect your networking skills and personal presentation/public speaking abilities. I give it a top rating.
