(UPDATE: Amazon is no longer listing the book as a pre-order. You can still save 34% (the largest discount) by ordering from Amazon.)

OK, I’m not sure how many book authors do this, but I’m going to share with you a secret that will help you save a whopping 39% off my new book Radically Transparent: Monitoring and Managing Reputations Online.

After months of writing and editing, the book started shipping from the warehouse this week. I’m in England right now, but my wife tells me that I have copies waiting for me at home. As you might guess, I’m giddy with excitement.

Now, I’m hoping you want to buy the one book that will show you how to use the internet–especially blogs and social media–to build, manage, monitor, and repair your online reputation. You do care about your brand right? I’m also willing to bet you’d like to buy the book for as cheap as possible.

Here’s the scoop.

At this minute books are on their way to’s warehouse. In the meantime, Amazon is showing that the book is still a “pre-order.” With Amazon’s pre-orders you save an additional 5% off their normal price. The price for Radically Transparent is already discounted 34%!!!

If you order now–it could end tomorrow–you can get the book with a 39% discount and likely receive it within the next week!

I’m also working on a contest that any owner of Radically Transparent can enter.

The sooner you buy the book, the sooner you can build a stellar online reputation, and grab your chance to enter our future contest–all while paying just $18.80. 😉

Still need convincing?

“Crisply written, thoroughly researched, and chock full of relevant anecdotes, Radically Transparent is sure to become the definitive guide for members of any company or group who want to join and shape the often brutally honest conversation across social media about their brands, products, and people.”

“In this new world of instant connection and networked customers, understanding what people are saying about your company, your products, and your competitors is vital for business success. Reputations, like trust, are built over time, but can be destroyed in an instant. Follow carefully what this book says – the career you save might be your own!”
David L. Sifry, Founder and Chairman, Technorati, Inc.

“Branding has evolved from a one-way monologue to a two-way conversation. It’s vital you know the strategies needed to join the conversation and build your radically transparent reputation.”
John Battelle, Chairman, CEO, Federated Media, national bestselling Author of The Search

  • Looks like it’s too late already, but it’s still 34% off. Not all bad. 🙂

  • Just ordered and got the 34% discount. Added a CD to the order for free shipping! Wish I’d have the book in time for SMX and get it signed!

  • I still see the extra 5% off on The book is 34% off, then they deduct another 5% after you add it to your shopping cart. 😉

  • You’re right. I see that my receipt shows a separate -$0.99 line item for Pre-Order Discount. Kewl!
    Shipping estimate: March 10, 2008

  • @Dana – cool. I know the books are shipping to retailers this week, so you should get it before March 10 (finger’s crossed).

    I think you got the title wrong. When you want to show a discount, you say: $100, $75.

    But if you strike a discount percentage you only show that you had a bigger discount to offer and now you reduced it.

    Does that make any sense?

    Congrats on your new book!

  • @Zen – that’s what happened. The discount was 39% if you acted fast. Amazon pulled the extra 5%, so I updated the post.

    @Janet – thanks!
