Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was encouraged to buy this book by all of its positive reviews, but was disappointed to find it to be almost completely useless for me. First, our training seminars are reasonably well established: I was looking to better "market and promote" them, as the title of the book says. Unfortunately there are only 2 or 3 pages on this subject in the entire book, and they are little more than recommendations to buy the books & tapes from other promoters that the author works with.

This book does not provide helpful information so much as it plugs the author's many other products that promise to do so. It reads like a self-help book from the 1990's.

I was looking for a professionally presented source of good usable information (something that we provide in our seminars) but instead got a hard lesson on used car salesmanship 101. I am confident that those who leave my seminars got their money's worth, but I expect that Fred Gleeck makes a lot more money at his. Two different ways of doing business, I guess.

Fred Gleeck isn't big on theoretical concepts. This book is full of specific information and how-to taken from his experience profitably promoting more than 1300 seminars.
You will find useful ideas all through the book as Fred tells how to create and plan the event, prepare and present your seminar, market effectively, create profitable products for back of the room sales, and follow-up with customers after the seminar. Any randomly-selected page probably has a tidbit of information that will show you how to make (or save) thousands of dollars.
You want theory? There are lots of books out there that will give you that. You want to make money with your seminars? Buy, read and use this book.

Whether you're just getting started doing seminars or a seasoned pro, Fred Gleeck has packed this book with a ton of useful information that can make your seminars very profitable!
With 15 years personally in the seminar industry myself, I've made an incredible income, but have lost a lot as well. Using Fred's seminar system I've learned how "He has never lost money on a seminar he promoted".
Plus he covers:
Designing and creating your seminar
The seminar success formula TR=SR+PS+CB
Key ways to promote and getting others to promote you
The best days/months and cities to do seminars
Delivering content rich seminars
How to develop and sell your backend product line
And a great resource list with names and contact info
Don't even consider doing a seminar without first reading this book, it will save you time and prevent you from making costly mistakes. This is the best investment you'll ever make as you enter or continue doing seminars. I highly recommend it too anyone looking to make money in the seminar business.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book, hoping to improve attendance at some workshops I teach for my employer. Our clients pay a nominal fee for the class, so it is important that we market the class effectively to gain participants. I currently have a very successful "following", and gain new clients all the time. Still, it is important to seek new clients actively. I hoped Mr. Gleeck's book would help me to do that.
Mr. Gleeck's advice may work in a hard-core sales environment, but in the real world of adult training and consulting his advice would put me out of business! I am speaking particularly of his advice regarding delivery of the workshop. For example, he advises us to use self-depreciating humor to gain clients and win over our audience. I fail to see how telling the client I'm a schmuck will make him/her trust my knowledge enough to take my class!
The book was actually painful to read. Mr. Gleeck had an arrogant tone throughout the book. I'm glad he thinks he's wonderful because his advice was useless to me. Honestly, I am extremely sorry I wasted the money, and the time, on this book.

Although the book was quite informative, the author was less that stellar in his follow up or even on making good on the "generous offer' he makes in his book (on the bottom of every page of the entire book). As a matter of fact, I sent the email requesting the "half hour teleconference", that he offers on page viii, he writes that this is was worth a minimum of $350. And I am sad to say that this was his reply:

Thanks for the feedback.

I suggest you unsubscribe. That way you will no longer get the emails.

Thanks,

Fred
