CMG President Cyrus Webb Shares 1000th Amazon.com Review
"It's not about the number of books and musical projects I've reviewed," says Webb, 36. "What means something to me is that my comments about the books and music have resonated with others and gotten them to try some of the selections themselves."
To date over 80% of those who have voted on Webb's reviews have finding them to be helpful to them in their searches. The reviews have also been responsible for Webb finding new guests for Conversations the radio show and features for the magazine Conversations.
"Some see my reviews because I'm on the Top Amazon.com Reviewer list and reach out to me about their own books and cds," Webb explained. "That has not only introduced me to new individuals but given my regular audience new options to explore as well."
