Manipurated is a business owner’s manifesto that exposes the inner workings of the multibillion-dollar online rating-and-review industry, and shows them the roadmap to making these platforms work harder for their businesses.

This book hits home for the 30 million businesses in America that depend on ratings and reviews for customers. Few business owners understand that amazing businesses can be permanently damaged with a few bad reviews. Managing a reputation online requires skills and tactics that are not always intuitive to business owners.

Manipurated gives business owners an insider’s view of how the multibillion-dollar ratings and reviews machine systematically stacks the cards against them ― and more important, empowers business owners to fight back with a six-step playbook to defend, control, and enhance their business’s online reputation. Manipurated is a must-read for all business owners who depend on online reviews.

Hug Your Haters

HugYourHaters9-15_1-3Customer service is the new marketing.

In Jay Baer’s new book Hug Your Haters (available for pre-order now, releases March 1, 2016) readers learn how to embrace complaints – all of them – and use this critical feedback to improve their businesses, and keep their customers.

Hug Your Haters is the new playbook for how businesses of all sizes must handle customer complaints in a modern, mobile world.

Widespread adoption of smartphones and social media has fundamentally altered the science of complaints. Critics of companies (“haters”) can now express their displeasure in seconds, in public, with no interpersonal friction. This trend has resulted in an overall rise in complaints, and a belief by many businesses that they should “pick their spots”
when choosing to answer haters’ criticisms.

Hug Your Haters proves that approach to be a costly mistake.

Centered around proprietary research into the how, where, and why we complain, Hug Your Haters demonstrates that there are two types of complainers, each with very different motivation, and provides the step-by-step playbook for how to handle them successfully.
