Product description

From the Inside Flap

The future isn′t about the next social media tool or clicking a "Like" button. Instead, people decide which organizations to trust, what advice to follow, and who to forge personal or business relationships with based on the simple metric of likeability. This is no longer a soft quality and it is not the same thing as just being nice. With today′s "modern believability crisis," earning the trust of your customers, employees, and colleagues is much harder to do. Likeonomics offers a new vision of a world beyond Facebook, where real relationships and personal values such as unabashed honesty, extreme simplicity, and basic humanity are the keys to success. There is a real ROI to likeability, and exactly how big it is will amaze you.

Likeonomics uncovers five key principles to win trust (or win it back) and keep it. You′ll learn how to use the TRUST formula (Truth, Relevance, Unselfishness, Simplicity, and Timing) to power every relationship. Being more believable is the real secret to standing out whether you are trying to grow your business, win an election, or find your next job and this book will help you get there.

Likeonomics provides real–world stories of brands and people who have used these principles to become wildly successful, including: 

  • An unknown Portuguese singer who used YouTube to rack up more than 30 million views and launch her professional career
  • The leader of a tiny island nation who put his country on the map with an unexpected meeting that got the world talking about global warming
  • A regional team of financial advisors that went from being ranked 173rd out of 176 branches to first, and stayed there for thirteen of the next fifteen years
  • An independent sports agent who achieved the impossible by landing the number–one player in the NFL draft as a client through the power of relationships

Learn how to stand out in a good way, avoid the hype and strategic traps of social media, and change your life and career by being more likeable, believable, and (most of all) trusted.
