Have you ever gotten an idea that you had no way of knowing what the outcome would be but were willing to try it anyway? Chances are you have.
It’s likely some ideas worked while others failed miserably. Such was the case with my “experiment” on Thursday with the pricing of 101 Ways to Get Your Foot in the Door. I wanted to see if pricing makes a difference on eBooks.
It appears that in this case it did. It also appears as if acting on the idea worked brilliantly. (humbly I say 🙂 )

Here’s a quick look at the results as of this morning.
What’s really great about trying the “99 Cent Kindle Experiment” is I know that there are readers who may not have gotten the book but figured, “Heck, 99 cents, I can afford this even if the book is no good.”
Fortunate for them, the book is very good. A quick read of reviews will show you that much.
Here’s what one reader has to say:
101 Ways to Get Your Foot in the Door is a powerful book for three reasons:
1. It delivers what it promises – over 101 ways, not only to get your foot in the door, but in many cases to get your foot BACK into the door.
2. It’s a quick read, leaving you time to adapt and implement the techniques that will work best for your situation.
3. The authors speak from experience; the ideas work in the real world.
Did you know this about me?
Most people know me as an Internet Marketing adviser rather than someone who trains on traditional sales. The fact is, I have been in sales a lot longer than Internet marketing. I began my career at the ripe old age of eight.
For my eighth birthday I received a rubber stamp printing press. I got really excited about the idea of going door to door to sell ad space in my neighborhood. Each ad cost a penny. Mind you, I’m going back almost 50 years. A penny could buy you a lot in those days – even an ad in Kathy’s Paper. (Pretty creative name wouldn’t you say LOL)
Seriously though, the seed for my career was planted nearly five decades ago. I loved selling. But what I discovered is this; selling a penny advertisement as a cute eight year old is very different than selling in competitive environments.
Over the last few decades I have sold everything from booth space for trade shows, radio advertising, consulting services, keynote presentations, books, information products, concepts, and burglar alarms (yes – I went that route at the age of 18 and failed miserably at selling burglar alarms).
Knowing the value of information and education, I’ve invested in lots of training, books, seminars and coaching. Some were good, some were awful and some were great. As I increased my successes I put my knowledge into practical experience as well as training others on the finer points I knew worked; everything from prospecting, proposal writing, presentations, and closing.
How the book came to be
A few years ago one of my closest friends and business associates (also with years of sales experience) decided to share some of our best insights into sales. One thing we have in common is that we love selling. We think it’s fun and yet, we know how tough it can be to sometimes keep your head above water.
Thus the idea was born for 101 Ways to Get Your Foot in the Door. But rather than write a typical sales book on theory we decided to write a very playful book. After all, those who do great at sales are playful yet, serious when needed.
If you’re not playful, a stick in the mud and downright miserable, this book is NOT for you. On the other hand, if you want something really fun to read and implement the ideas from, this book is a must have.
It’s amazing how many people don’t realize they are in sales. There are all different levels of sales. Maybe you’re selling a company on the idea of hiring you. Perhaps you are selling an association on the idea of sponsoring your next book or event. (I’ve successfully done this) You might want to increase the number of consulting contracts you secure – again you’re selling. Maybe you have a common widget you are selling.
Whatever you’re selling, you absolutely need creative ideas on how to get (and stay) in front of prospects. Enter 101 Ways to Get Your Foot in the Door.
I can assure you there will be several “keepers” in this book for virtually anyone. Regardless of the industry you are in, what you are selling or what your level of experience, this book has something for you.
