Marketing your small business just got easier
It's been said that the most important area for any business to focus on is its marketing. Of course, there are areas like finance, customer service, and the product or service itself which are key, but without good marketing approaches, there's no revenue for your account systems to do their job,
there's no customer to serve and the product or service becomes redundant.

Most business owners are experts in what they do and so they should be. What they also have to be good at is marketing what they do. And if you feel there's more you could be doing on the marketing front, then this book will give you those ideas. As a small business owner you get involved in all aspects of your business and marketing is such a large field, you can't be expected to learn everything you need in one day. So to break down this behemoth of a topic, we'll approach it a bite at a time.

You have in your hands a tool that will guide you through what's needed day by day over the period of a week. That way you're not trying to eat the elephant all at once. The unpredictable nature of marketing your business will start to disappear, as you move through the necessary steps needed
to make your marketing efforts more effective than ever before. Some of the ideas you may already be implementing, while others may well be new to you. Either way, putting them together into a proven system will enable you and your business to thrive, regardless of the economic climate you find yourself in.

You're about to learn, in a week, how you can have a marketing system that enables you to attract, win and keep more customers and, as a result, build your sales and your profitability.

- Sunday: Preparing the ground
- Monday: Attracting the right type of customers
- Tuesday: Keeping your customers longer
- Wednesday: Increasing customer loyalty and purchasing frequency
- Thursday: Increasing the value of your sales
- Friday: Getting new clients and better clients, faster

Create Business and Generate Profits in New Markets through Innovation!

“The best account I have read about how companies can enable and support internal entrepreneurs to achieve innovation-led growth.”
Philip Kotler, S.C. Johnson & Son Professor of International Marketing, Kellogg School of Management

“An essential resource for both private and public sector leaders seeking to align new business creation with an organization’s mission and strategy . . . and achieve results.”
William J. Perry, former U.S. Secretary of Defense

“Wolcott and Lippitz are not only insightful, they are spot on. This is exactly the book corporate leaders—from CEOs and functional executives to corporate entrepreneurial teams—need to help them navigate the exceptional challenges of organic growth and innovation.”
Betsy Holden, Senior Advisor, McKinsey & Company, and former Co-CEO, Kraft Foods, Inc.

About the Book:

IBM reports $15 billion of annual new revenues from 22 Emerging Business Opportunities.

In 2008, $4 billion in revenues from companywide innovation efforts allowed Whirlpool to maintain its top line, despite global recession and the steep drop in housing markets.

A DuPont business group leader, Ellen Kullman, backed an ambitious new business creation program and later became DuPont’s CEO.

Each of these companies has learned how to create new businesses on a repeatable basis. In Grow from Within, two leading scholars from the Kellogg School of Management explain how your company can discover the right approach to corporate entrepreneurship and make it profitable.

Taking innovation to the next level, corporate entrepreneurship is the process of building new businesses within an established organization— new businesses that are distinct from the core company but that leverage some of its most powerful assets. Grow from Within examines:

The fundamentals of designing a new business The four dominant models of corporate entrepreneurship Ways to align your innovation program with your strategy Leadership requirements for developing new businesses

Innovation is critical to business success and growth, but it’s only the first step. Without strategically driven processes to turn insights into growing businesses, even the best ideas can fail. Creativity is often serendipitous; innovation management should not be.

Grow from Within provides the knowledge you need to conceive and design valuable new businesses that breathe life into ideas and dramatically improve your top and bottom lines.

"You'll not only break the ice, you'll melt it away with your new skills." -- Larry King

"The lost art of verbal communication may be revitalized by Leil Lowndes." -- Harvey McKay, author of “How to Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive”

What is that magic quality makes some people instantly loved and respected? Everyone wants to be their friend (or, if single, their lover!) In business, they rise swiftly to the top of the corporate ladder. What is their "Midas touch?"

What it boils down to is a more skillful way of dealing with people.

The author has spent her career teaching people how to communicate for success. In her book How to Talk to Anyone (Contemporary Books, October 2003) Lowndes offers 92 easy and effective sure-fire success techniques-- she takes the reader from first meeting all the way up to sophisticated techniques used by the big winners in life. In this information-packed book you’ll find:

9 ways to make a dynamite first impression 14 ways to master small talk, "big talk," and body language 14 ways to walk and talk like a VIP or celebrity 6 ways to sound like an insider in any crowd 7 ways to establish deep subliminal rapport with anyone 9 ways to feed someone's ego (and know when NOT to!) 11 ways to make your phone a powerful communications tool 15 ways to work a party like a politician works a room 7 ways to talk with tigers and not get eaten alive

In her trademark entertaining and straight-shooting style, Leil gives the techniques catchy names so you'll remember them when you really need them, including: "Rubberneck the Room," "Be a Copyclass," "Come Hither Hands," “Bare Their Hot Button,” “The Great Scorecard in the Sky," and "Play the Tombstone Game,” for big success in your social life, romance, and business.

How to Talk to Anyone, which is an update of her popular book, Talking the Winner's Way (see the 5-star reviews of the latter) is based on solid research about techniques that work!

By the way, don't confuse How to Talk to Anyone with one of Leil's previous books, How to Talk to Anybody About Anything. This one is completely different!
