It is that time of year when I work to finish the brand new TomiAhonen Almanac 2017 with all the latest stats about the whole mobile industry. I aim to get the new Almanac out right about end-of-February and am working on it right now. As in any year, there are some goodies that are new stats (this year the section on mobile payments expands to its own Chapter, and AR will get more coverage) and of course it has all the stuff you always loved, like the stats on mobile industry users, revenues, services, traffic, business, handsets, smartphones, dumbphones, apps, mobile advertising, gaming, social media, newsmedia etc etc etc. It will again be over 200 pages in length and have over 100 tables and charts. All for just 10 Euros (14 Dollars, 9 UK Pounds) it's a tremendous value and it has a loyal readership eagerly awaiting the latest edition every year.
Also it is my custom to offer a two-for-one deal every year at the start of the year, if you buy the 'current' ebook, ie the 2016 edition, now in February 2017, and the new version comes out only weeks later, I will ship both of them to you, for one same price. So any year, in February, you'd be getting a 'Two-for-One' offer of the Almanac. When you buy the current (last year's) version, you'll get that immediately, and you also get the next edition (this year's) Almanac also the moment it is released. I have a two-for-one offer again going this year for the Almanac of course. Except this year its a kind of Three-for-One. You already get the 2015 edition (previous edition) for free. If you now order the Almanac 2017, and the 2016 edition is still the current one, I ship you the 2016 edition now, and you ALSO get the 2017 edition when that is released in a few weeks from now. How's that for 'fair' haha. Three-for-one.
This is the deal: The reason you actually would want all 3, is that right now, before the 2017 version is out, you - personally you - do want the latest numbers immediately. Hence you want the 2016 Almanac now, even as it is about to be replaced. Obviously you also want the new 2017 Almanac on the day it comes out, to have all the new numbers in your pocket, the day they are released. But why would you want the 2015 edition now? Because THAT licence is a 'shareware' licence. The paid Almanacs (2016 and 2017) are not free to be shared with everybody. But I made that 2015 Almanac now earlier this week, a free shareware licence.
So if you have a meeting with a colleague or client, and you talk about mobile and you throw some number at the client or colleague, then they might be surprised, you can then ALSO give them the 2015 edition of the Almanac. Right then and there, via bluetooth transfer from your phone to their phone haha. THAT is why you also want the shareware 2015 edition now. As it is still so fresh, the numbers are all close to the truth and very representative. So yeah. Three-for-One offer on the Almanac series. How's that for great data, including tons for free? Here is the special payment page to do the 3-for-1 purchase via Paypal:
Order 3-for-1 Almanac Series (2015, 2016 and 2017) all for price of one in Euros: 9.99 Euros
Order 3-for-1 Almanac Series (2015, 2016 and 2017) all for price of one in UK Pounds: 8.99 UKP
Order 3-for-1 Almanac Series (2015, 2016 and 2017) all for price of one in US Dollars: $13.99 USD
Now, what about a FOUR-for-TWO deal? FOUR-FOR-PRICE-OF-TWO So we also have that rare year when both the Almanac and Phone Book are renewed nearly at the same time. The brand new TomiAhonen Phone Book 2016 came out just six weeks ago, at the end of December 2016. All the data in the Phone Book are 'end of 2016' while the data in the next Almanac 2017 will be 'start of 2017' ie the data covers the same period (up to December 31, 2016). So the TomiAhonen Phone Book 2016 is actually hot-off-the-press fresh, but as a two-year-volume, its period is different from the Almanacs that cover the time of the past 12 months. And yes, always when the new Phone Book comes out (on even years, around December) I do a separate 2-for-1 offer for those who may want both the Phone Book and Almanac. That will need the buyer to pay for 2 ebooks, but they get a bundle deal and discount. Instead of 19.98 Euros for two ebooks, I bundle those for 17 Euros even (15 UKP, 20 USD). And now as we have our convoluted 3-for-1 deal already with the Almanac, lets make this a 'four-for-two' offer. If you pay 17 Euros today, I send you the 2015 Almanac shareware edition, the 2016 current Almanac edition and the 2016 brand-new Phone Book edition. Plus you receive the 2017 Almanac on the day that is released in a few weeks from now. So lets do the image for that idea like this:
So thats the Four-for-Two deal. For a mere 20 bucks or 15 Pounds, or if you're inclined to think in Euros, then for 17 Euros, you get 4 TomiAhonen statistics volumes. The Almanac 2016 and Phone Book 2016 for your own use immediately. You'll receive the shareware previous edition 2015 Almanac that you can share, AND you receive the brand-new Almanac 2017 when that comes out soon. I think this is quite a good value, don't you think? And to make that easy for you, I have set up the prices for you too.
