CTRL ALT Delete - The Ultimate Business Reboot Audiobook Sweepstakes

Want to change the way you think about business forever?

On May 21st, 2013 my second business book, CTRL ALT Delete, will be published. The question this book asks is simple: do you want to employable in the next five years? Well, what are you going to do about it? The book is divided into two parts. The first section is called, Reboot: Business, and it uncovers five key movements that have changed business forever that most brands are doing nothing (or very little) about. The second section is called, Reboot: You, and it walks you through the seven triggers you need to apply to your business/life to work in this forever-changed environment. My good friends at Audible provoked me to come up with a list of audiobooks that would create the "best of the best" when it comes to rebooting your business. And now, they want you to win The Ultimate Business Reboot Sweepstakes audiobook library.

Thanks, Audible!

I have been a fan of Audible and listening to business books for as long as the company has been in business. They have a massive selection of digital audiobooks and as I was choosing my books for The Ultimate Business Reboot Audiobook Sweepstakes, I was pleasantly surprised to see that all of the titles I had on my initial list (which was close to fifty titles long) were easily found on Audible. Plus, the offer they are making for anyone who pre-orders the new book is not only very kind, but the money to Jumpstart will make a difference in people's lives. I hope you will enter the sweepstakes and/or pre-order the audiobook for CTRL ALT Delete right here:

    What a great promotion, Mitch. Thanks for sharing. And though I've read your latest book already, I'm very eager to take in the audiobook as well. :)

    The sweepstakes is open to US residents only :-(
    Have to go and buy it on Amazon - I'm sure it will be a great read along with the others on the list.
    Best of luck with the launch

    Great list and looking forwards to your new book. But doesn't step 2 of the competition violate Facebook's terms of service?

      Hi Peter,

      Good question.

      Actually, Facebook's Pages Terms for Promotions prohibit using a Page 'Like' as a method of entry for a sweepstakes or promotion, but do not prohibit fan-gating access to exclusive content or promotions.

      From https://www.facebook.com/page_guidelines.php#promotionsguidelines

      " iii. You must not condition registration or entry upon the user taking any action using any Facebook features or functionality other than liking a Page, checking in to a Place, or connecting to your app. For example, you must not condition registration or entry upon the user liking a Wall post, or commenting or uploading a photo on a Wall.

      iv. You must not use Facebook features or functionality as a promotion’s registration or entry mechanism. For example, the act of liking a Page or checking in to a Place cannot automatically register or enter a promotion participant."

      (There's more, but not particularly relevant to this promotion)

      While The Ultimate Business Reboot Sweepstakes is exclusively available to Audible Fans on Facebook, entering an email address is the method of entry for the sweepstakes.

      Hope that helps to clarify.

      Have a great day :)

      Dave
