In just a few more weeks, we’ll release The $100 Startup into the world.
It’s a book I’ve been working on for years, and it’s almost ready to go.
Early reviews and industry feedback are extremely favorable. We’ll be debuting a video trailer and hitting the road to everywhere starting on May 8.
But first! A sale!
For this week only, I’m offering a special sale for those who’d like to pre-order extra copies to give to their friends. In exchange for purchase, I’m giving away the store with a big list of bonus items.
If you’ve ever wanted to pick up something from Unconventional Guides, you can cover the cost with this purchase and get extra copies of the new book for your friends.
How It Works and What You Get
I don’t use discounting as a strategy and usually have only one sale a year. This time, though, I’m going all-out. I want the book to do very well at launch (see below on why it matters) and I’m willing to do anything I can to encourage early pre-orders.
In other words, you can help me by ordering the book now, and you’ll get a number of things I’ve never offered before. The offers are below, and all of them include FREE SHIPPING and a 20% discount from the $23 list price.
Buy 3 books and get a free online class on how to see the world and work from anywhere, featuring completely new info based on The $100 Startup model.
This is what I’ve done for 10+ years, and in the 60-minute online class, you’ll learn the basics of setting up an online business that can be run from home … or the jetway.
You’ll also get a $20 gift certificate toward anything in the Unconventional Guides store (no restrictions, no expiration date).
Buy 10 books and get two free online classes and the original Working for Yourself guide (recently updated with all-new info). You’ll get 120 minutes of instruction and 10,000 words of an immediate action plan. The second class will provide a detailed overview of travel hacking, including seven new ways to earn free plane tickets in 2012.
You’ll also get a $50 gift certificate toward anything in the Unconventional Guides store (no restrictions, no expiration date).
Buy 50 books and get a FREE copy of the Empire Building Kit, $270 in additional products, and everything you need to take over the world.
You’ll also get our unending gratitude, and my
cat assistant will come to your house and make pancakes—subject to her cooperation, of course.
There is also an offer to buy 500 or 1,000 books for even more bonuses. I know that most people can’t do that, but for those who are able or interested, we’ll offer two spots to the sold-out World Domination Summit and even come to your city for an additional tour stop if you’d like.
Contact me if you’d like to place an order in that quantity.
Why It Matters
Writing and researching the book was a labor of love for several years, and the book tells the stories of more than 50 other people who found freedom by starting a small business. I want them to be proud of getting their message to as many people as possible.
If you’re just joining us, I don’t promote commercial things very much, and I never ask for your money directly. The AONC blog is free and doesn’t contain advertisements or sponsorship. We do have a store and various products for sale, but I’m proud that more than 90% of the community reads for free. I always say that the best way people can help is to tell other people about it.
For this book, however, I’m very excited and I do hope that you’ll consider picking it up. It’s been in the works for a long time, and my greatest hope is that it will help a lot of people. To do so, we need to debut well in May and show the publishing industry that the book is a serious product that will go far.
That’s all I have to say about the big sale—but do me a favor if you don’t mind. In addition to buying books, would you share the news about the sale? I’d be grateful for any sharing on Twitter, Facebook, and your blog. I won’t make this request again for three more weeks, when the book is actually available.
UPDATE: This sale is now over. Thanks for your support and I’ll see you at the launch!
Have a great week!
