About the Do It! Marketing Book


Do It! Marketing hardback standing straight

The thing that makes the book unique is that it's a SALES-focused marketing book. So many marketing books focus on marketing for the sake of marketing. I've collected hundreds of ideas, strategies, tools, tactics, and scripts that will help you do marketing specifically to drive sales. More sales. Better sales. Bigger sales. That's the result of any strong marketing program. The other thing that I'm really excited about is the dozen or so "DO IT! Success Strategy Sidebars" throughout the book, with contributions from outside experts like you, Viv - folks whom I love and respect and who do great work in the realm of marketing, sales, social media, and business development. The book is part action handbook, part field guide, part marketing manual, with a big dose of kick-in-the-butt do-this-now tactics. Even though the subtitle says "77 ideas" there are about 200 ideas in the book if you look at each section and count all the specific action items, templates, tools and scripts under each one. Sorry to say - truth in advertising is dead!
