Who Should Read My Book About Marketing?


If marketing is a bit of a mystery to you, my book is for you.

Whether you are a small business owner, new entrepreneur or inexperienced in marketing, this is the right book for you to read. It is filled with easy to understand ideas about marketing that are told through my personal stories from experiences as an entrepreneur who successfully grew a small business that landed on INC MAGAZINES FASTEST GROWING COMPANIES. After my entrepreneurial days, I then continued working in several large and mid-sized consumer packaged goods companies managing millions of dollars in marketing investments.

Learn about some of the people I worked with from Ben & Jerry, Macho Man Randy Savage and my lunch conversation with President Reagan.

Do you struggle with these questions?

How can marketing profitably grow my business? Should I add a new line of product to my business? Why don’t I have more customers? How important is it to be focused on one unique benefit for customers? Is it a good idea to partner with other businesses? Should I use traditional advertising to get customers or is there a better way to be found? How come I don’t get more potential customers to my website? Can I learn how to stand out from my competitors? Am I pricing my offerings properly? How can I understand my customer’s needs better?
