Publisher's Summary

The "mind-reading" system that is revolutionizing online business
Do you know how to find out what people really want to buy?
(Not what you think they want, not what they say they want, but what they really want?)
The secret is asking the right questions - and the right questions are not what you might expect.
Ask is based on the compelling premise that you should never have to guess what your prospects and customers are thinking. The Ask Formula revealed in this book has been used to help build multimillion-dollar businesses in 23 different industries, generating over $100 million in sales in the process.
You'll discover why the Ask Formula is arguably the most powerful way to discover exactly what people want to buy and how to give it to them - and in a way that makes people fall in love with you and your company.
In this tell-all book, expert online marketer Ryan Levesque (featured on CNBC and Yahoo Finance and in The Miami Herald, The San Francisco Chronicle, Mass Market Retailer, Bloomberg Businessweek, and more) turns everything you know about customer surveys on its head.
You'll discover how Ryan Levesque developed his proven system for creating survey-based, customized sales funnels. And you'll also learn how you can implement the same system in your own business - no matter your market. The Ask Formula blueprint is laid out in clear and detailed steps for anyone to use and adapt.
Whether you're an aspiring Internet entrepreneur, advanced online marketer, or established business owner, this book will both inspire you and show you how to skyrocket your online income - while creating a mass of raving fans in the process - simply by asking the right questions in a surprisingly different way. For people looking to scale up their business, Ask will utterly transform how you think about consumer behavior and selling online.

Skip the first half

The first half of the book was the author tooting his own horn and telling uninteresting stories, while trying to sell products without actually providing any value at all.

After the first ELEVEN chapters, he teaches some of his techniques for creating survey funnels, though this could have been painted clearer.

It's sad when books are solely created as marketing tools for other products and it's worse when presented like a cheap sales page.

A long book about a simple concept

As a marketer I had high expectations for this book. I was very disappointed.

Why?
- About 30% of the book is the author telling us how fantastic his method is, how many millions he has made, how smart he is
- About 20% of the book is his life story, which is not very well told, has a couple key flaws, and fails to in providing useful context
- About 30% of the book is a step by step guide of his method, narrated seemingly for people who have no clue about marketing, while promoting the author's products and services.
- The last 20% is more stories about how companies have used his method to make millions and millions

The secret: ask your customers what they want, deliver personalized messages and do a lot of testing. I just summarized his 6 hour book in one sentence. Marketing 102 if you ask me.

Of course the author provides a few best practices and a couple step by step guides. The problem is that his method, as he describes it, is only useful for a specific type of online business, not 'any business' as promised.

Helpful digital marketing guide

while good advice contained within, his presentation and style is very American and a little irritating.
additionally, while intuitively a good approach there is little to no evidence of the performance.

2,5hrs irrelevant intro about the author

What disappointed you about Ask?

This book is NOT good. The author uses 2,5hrs to brag and tell about himself. Totally irrelevant and really annoying. The author should have read Orren Knapp's: Pitch Anything (recommended). And when he finally gets started on the topic, this magic formula of his - it's the complete opposite. It's not a magic formula, and it's not that counterintuitive. A real disappointment. Not as promised.

This has changed the way I do marketing!

If you could sum up Ask in three words, what would they be?

Insightful, interesting and in-depth

Any additional comments?

After more than a decade in marketing Ryan Levesque's Ask has changed the way I communicate with clients and future clients. Thank you Ryan! An amazing insight into the way potential customers think about making purchases and a way to gain in-depth information from them.
