Subject: What are contentimonials and how they can help you sell more books

Who do YOU buy from? Think groceries, clothes, airline tickets.

It’s probably going to be someone you know, like and trust.

Whether it’s your mom-and-pop corner grocery store, your favorite online retailer or the airline that treats you best, with so many choices it’s the “know, like and trust” factor that counts.

What if you know someone (like an author!) and you think you might like them, but you’re not sure if you trust them yet?

That’s when you look at testimonials!

Whether it’s online reviews or testimonials from past clients — that’s what’s going to help you make up your mind.

What type of testimonials are the most convincing? Think “I like it” versus a 1,000-word detailed description where you learn a great deal before you even open the book…

It’s testimonials that have valuable content in them, or as my mentor, Dean Jackson calls them, contentimonials.

This is what you should be asking your readers to leave on your Amazon pages — videos with contentimonials. Video is huge right now, and there’s nothing more convincing than a video from a happy customer.

Now, this got me thinking.

People come online for two reasons: to get their problems solved and for entertainment.

So I thought, what about an entertaintimonial — a testimonial that entertains!

I got a magician (who’s also one of the authors I work with) to create a 37-second entertaintimonial for us.

And I'd love your judgment.

What do you think?

Is this a thing? Is it compelling? Is it convincing?

Watch the 37-second entertainmonial here and reply to this email with your honest opinion.
