Reviews are like tipping…
You’ve already paid for the pedicure, hair style, meal, valet, book
whatever, but that extra something is what makes that
person’s day. …
- No tip or a one-star review could mean that the person did nothing right at all
- Ten percent or a two-star review could mean that the person did their job, but not very well
- Fifteen percent or a three-star review could mean that the person did their job, but didn’t offer anything special, didn’t go out of their way to stand out from other persons in the same profession
- Eighteen percent or a four-star review could mean that the person did everything they were supposed to, went out of their way to connect with you.
- Twenty percent is that coveted five-star review. This person did everything they were supposed to do and then some. You connected, you're coming back, you're bringing your friends!
And also like tipping
just because you
get a FREE or discounted meal, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t tip on that amount.
Heck, it’s almost more important. …
So, if you want to say thank you to an author for a great book at a fraction of the price as some publishers, review the book, tell your friends, share via social media… That’s the best way an author can grow
by word-of-mouth. ...
Until next time, happy reading, my friends!
