Publisher's Summary

Radical generosity is the against-the-grain secret weapon of real influencers, and it will allow you to boost referrals, retention rates, and ROI like few other strategies.

But be warned, gifts with strings attached backfire. There is a right, and wrong, way to give.

John Ruhlin has gifted on behalf of everyone from Forbes Magazine to the Fortune 500, and his tactics lead to appreciative responses and wide-open check books.

Through poignant personal stories and data-backed evidence, Ruhlin breaks down how anyone - from mail clerk to managing director - can master the magic of Giftology with these and more:

  • Mastering reciprocity, the hidden bottom line booster
  • Laser-targeting whom to give a gift and when to use thrift
  • Uncovering your client's inner circle and becoming part of it

Give wholeheartedly to Giftology and reap the rewards of an expanding business and fruitful relationships, professional and personal alike.

    Story
    "Only slightly useful"

    I was expecting a lot more of the science behind gifting, (after all, the title is gift-ology), but instead the author is pitching his religion and his services far too often, and shares very little information about the research and strategies behind effective gifting.

    "Quick read with powerful content"

    I really enjoyed the stories that John shared and gift ideas. He presents a new way to think about gifting and optimizing the budget that you have to create the greatest impact with lasting relationships.

    One critique: I wanted to hear more stories from how he helped clients. I felt the book was a bit too short. He does give a lot of bonuses but for me this wasn't a fully complete book from what I was expecting and wanting to hear. More stories of how to sift out great gifts, how to think through gifts better, etc.
