I'm way behind the ball on this one because well, I've been busy. But I'm sure a little continued buzz never hurt anything. The Age of Conversation bumrush is officially (finally) back on the calendar. The book has been made available to a wider audience through Barnes and Noble and Amazon.com, and since things have actually been worked out with Amazon, they won't be canceling this one at the last moment (we hope). To reiterate the point of the whole thing, bumrush the charts efforts have been attempted, to the best of my knowledge, three times before, all with great success. It works very well as a way to get people involved around a product, to create and enlarge a community, and at least for one day, to boost sales significantly. Essentially, it's a day-long event where everyone who was going to buy the book does it all on the same day to make the product's sales ranking increase much faster than it otherwise would, getting it more attention, and then more sales. It's fun to watch, and more fun to get involved with.
So, here are the details:
- Buy the book here on March 29 (THIS Saturday)
That's it! Plus, of course, anything that you can do to spread the word to make this a successful event is also good. I'm just glad to see that after two failed attempts this event is finally getting off the ground!
