Book Review of Subliminal Persuasion By Dave Lakhani

I just read Subliminal Persuasion and I have to say for business, it is one of the best books I have read in a while. This has been a good summer for books too! I was surprised to see that Lakhani actually shares some valuable secrets. This is not a reflection on him personally, most books that say they have secrets, and then share the stuff that does not matter or does not work anymore.

 

I hate Guru’s that share the strategies worked in 1902 and pass them off as salvation for your business. So , stop it with the Brooklyn Bridge sales stories already! The reason this book is valuable to Wright Place Viewers is because it will give you an education about advertising,  motivation and why things work. He has a great chapter about Product placement. Product Placement is what made our High Tea Show the best ever this year.  People need to understand why the things in the book work. Many people feel like they are set up to take advantage of product placement opportunities, When they really are not.  Learn about leverage in business with some great examples and action plans to make the information you learned work for you. Learn how branding really works and why it is not about your logo and tag line.

As a Wright Place Viewer, you should be a reader. Seriously, you have to keep up.

 

Investing in books and live seminars will keep you up to date. I highly recommend this book and have also posted a review on Amazon. I appreciate that Lakhani is very upfront and has something to share with you. He does not mince his words, so you if do not wish to be confronted about some of your attitude towards your own business, leave this book alone. It will change how you see yourself, your business and your behavior.

The $15 Cup of Coffee

First of all I want to commend the coffee shop for being able to sell a $15 cup of coffee. Before you start whining about how that cup of coffee is 3 gallons of gas in Los Angeles, let me just say save your Anti-entrepreneurism for someone who cares.

There some coffee shops selling $15 cups of coffee called Panama Esmeralda Especial Reserve. I  believe in entrepreneurs and I love the ones that beat the odds. They found the formula for success. They found a way to stand out, they offer a luxury item and found the audience for this item. The people who drink this do not mind paying $100 for a half a pound of this rare coffee. If coffee is your passion this is a great way to indulge and splurge and even entertain your friends.

Marketing, Marketing, Marketing!

This is what it’s about people. Finding the people to serve and giving them exactly what they want. They want an exclusive coffee experience. These coffee shops serve it up. It doesn’t cost too much when it’ something you want. What’s the lesson here?

  •       Be different in more ways than just the low price leader, not everyone wants to shop at Wal-Mart    
  • Brag about it, get some publicity on your business going, tell some people!
  • ·         Find your real audience, do not worry about the people who cannot afford what you have, find the real fans, they can always afford it.
  • ·         Give the value the FANS are looking for, forget about your critics.
  • Besides last time I checked, you can’t drive your car on coffee, so who cares how many gallons of gas that cup of coffee equals?

 

What’s your take on this? Is the $15 cup of coffee genius or insanity?
