5.0 out of 5 stars Tells How to Become a Magnet for Clients, August 12, 2008
This review is from: Book Yourself Solid: The Fastest, Easiest, and Most Reliable System for Getting More Clients Than You Can Handle Even if You Hate Marketing and Selling (Paperback)
Even though I became an entrepreneur in 1996 by launching my company, and have read numerous books about marketing my services, Michael Port presented promotional ideas and strategies that helped me. Right away, I re-examined my niche and how I describe my services to prospective clients.

During one of my visits to a medical office as a patient, a nurse's assistant noticed that I was reading Book Yourself Solid. She asked me to describe what it was about. When I gave her a short summary, she asked next, "Why are you reading it? What is your line of work?" My answer flowed easily, using the pattern Michael proposed.

Too, I applaud the writing style--simple language, sprinkled occasionally with relevant, tasteful humor. Port illustrates his points skillfully.

An entrepreneurial friend had encouraged me to buy this book. I'm glad I followed his advice. I would welcome an opportunity to attend one of Michael Port's seminars, to hear additional marketing guidelines.

His sharpest suggestion about sales: Replace the ABC of "Always be closing" with the ABC of "Always be communicating."
