Start with Why by Simon Sinek

This product was recommended by Yash Sharma from Learnerz Hub

This book is so inspiring for anyone serving anything. It helps us in how to make loyal and permanent customers or fans of your products or services. As the title suggests, the book is about starting something new by first answering Why ie. Why that thing should be done. The author makes a convincing argument about how new endeavors become successful when people including team members, customers, and vendors understand the importance of an endeavor. The author has written that most people start by answering What and then go on to answer How. He, however, encourages to start by stating the reason and purpose (Why). He affirms that starting with What can confuse the people and lead to unsuccessful results. He says that once people understand the purpose, they themselves figure out the How and What. I follow this strategy in my blog posts. When I am recommending a product or a service to the blog readers, I tell them the reason for doing so rather than talking about the features or benefits of the recommended product.
