I’ve started confirming the first few dates for the Think Like a Rockstar Book Tour and I wanted to give you a heads-up on where I’ll be!
The first confirmed stop (for now) is Social Brand Forum in October! I’m super pumped about this as I’ll be keynoting along with my friends Ann Handley and DJ Waldow. It’s being put on by our friend Nick Westergaard in Coralville, Iowa on October the 17th and 18th. Not only will I be presenting Think Like a Rockstar, but I’ll also be conducting a LIVE #Blogchat as well! If all that’s not enough, the first 100 who register will also get a copy of Think Like a Rockstar, plus DJ’s new book, Rebel’s Guide to Email Marketing! This should be a great event and it’s my first time in Iowa, so I’m excited about that as well!
The second confirmed stop will be in Nashville next May, I’ll be speaking to the local AMA chapter. More details on this event as we get closer to that time. Also, another event is confirmed for February that I can’t talk about yet. Trust me, it will be a BIG surprise to all of y’all 😉 You can check here to see all the latest confirmed stops on the book tour. I’m also talking to a couple of other events and hope to have those confirmed soon as well.
Now if you want your event or company to be a part of the Think Like a Rockstar Book Tour, there’s 3 options available to you (All rates are for speaking in the continental United States only and don’t include travel):
1 – You can book me to present Think Like a Rockstar for $1,000.00. This is HALF what I normally charge to present Think Like a Rockstar, and this rate is only valid for the remainder of 2012. Half this fee will be due 60 days before the event, the balance due when I arrive at the event. So for example if you wanted me to present on Sept 1st, I’d need $500.00 by July 1st, and the remaining $500.00 would be due when I arrive at the event.
2 – You can book me to present Think Like a Rockstar for $500.00 plus pre-ordering 50 copies of Think Like a Rockstar through Amazon. The $500.00 fee will be due 60 days before the event. The best part about this option is Amazon won’t charge your credit card for the pre-orders until the book goes on sale (April 2013). Think Like a Rockstar will be paperback, so the price will likely be $14-16 dollars. Also note that you can always take the books and resell them to recover most of your cost.
3 – You can book me to present Think Like a Rockstar if you pre-order 100 copies of Think Like a Rockstar through Amazon. Again, Amazon won’t charge your credit card for the pre-orders until the book goes on sale next year. And you can always take the books and resell them to recover almost all of your cost!
I am offering such low rates on presenting Think Like a Rockstar because I want to build as much momentum as possible for the book prior to its launch. The presentation will be 60-75 minutes including 15-30 mins for Q&A. We can also add this with other services, for example if you’d like to bring me in to present Think Like a Rockstar PLUS do a Live #Blogchat, I can work out an impossibly affordable deal for that.
Also keep in mind that these slots will likely start filling up as we get closer to August when the book is available for pre-order. Plus I have a couple of big announcements concerning the book before then that should drive additional interest 😉
BTW if you would rather have me present Think Like a Rockstar after the book has come out, we can totally do that as well. Think Like a Rockstar will go on sale in April of 2013. The exact pre-order and on-sale dates should firm up as I finish the manuscript, which is 50% done right now! Just email me if you want to schedule a date in 2013 after the book has gone on sale.
Also, please note if your company or event is within driving distance of where I am, such as Memphis, Nashville, Birmingham and Huntsville, PLEASE contact me as I will give you a very good deal on having me come in and present Think Like a Rockstar. So if your local chapter of the Social Media Club or AMA, for example, wants to bring me in, let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
I’m so excited about this book and can’t wait to finish it for y’all. In fact the biggest reason why the manuscript is only 50% done at this point is because I keep re-writing the chapters I’ve finished cause I think of a way to make them better 😉 I hope you’ll enjoy it and I hope I can see YOU when I present Think Like a Rockstar!
