Reviews - What do our customers think?
Filled with clever little points worth trying in your business.  Mar 12, 2007
There are a series of books that I keep on a special - quite small - bookshelf. I try to reread each of them every year or so. While I've gotten to the point that I know what they say, but each time I go through one of them I get an idea or two to try in promoting my business.

This book has made it to that shelf.

It got a decision to be put there while I was reading it at the book store. On page 24 there's a story of a lady wanting to sell helmets in a state with no helmet law. So she started stocking children's helmets. When riders told her they didn't want a helmet she asked, 'What about one for the child, they aren't old enough to make that decision for themselves.' What daddy could resist? Then a month later they were back for a helmet for themselves after the kid was asking, 'Daddy, where's your helmet." So a sale for Daddy, little Jimmy and little Suzie. Three sales for one question.

Then on page 83 there's the advice:

Shoot your web designer if they:
Suggest flash intro pages
Suggest frame pages
Suggest templates.

Yes, Yes, Yes!

One point about the web I do not agree. Learn to do your web site yourself. You may hire a designer to do it at first, but then maintain it yourself. It isn't hard and you won't be nickled and dimed to death over every small change you want.

I could go on, but I'm sure you get the idea. All of his ideas won't be applicable, but if you get a good idea or two each time you read through it, the book is worth it's cost many times over.
Duct Tape Marketing Works  Feb 23, 2007
This book really is full of practical tips and suggestions to improve marketing, which are particularly helpful for small to medium sized businesses.

Many of the suggestions can be implemented immediately and with little or no cost or special preparation.

I now let my team select a tip of their choice per meeting for us to discuss and implement. A great source of ideas for continuous improvement in marketing.
Honest and practical  Feb 20, 2007
The Duct Tape Marketing book covers pretty much everything you need to know about marketing for small businesses. And make no mistake, while the concepts might be the same, the practicalities of marketing in a small business vs a large one are very different. Small businesses have limited budgets and staffs so their marketing has to be practical and this book shows how.

The book covers creating a marketing foundation (which so many small businesses forget to do), packaging up the business, tools for generating leads and then converting them to sales. It also talks about the use of the internet including websites, autoresponders and blogs.

It really is that good.
Author and book live up to their reputation  Feb 16, 2007
Read this book and you'll quickly understand why John Jantsch was selected by Forbes as having the best blog on small business and marketing.

He's packed this book with low cost suggestions you can use immediately to grow your business. I particularly liked his many examples that show how others have already implemented these ideas and benefitted as a result.

Even more importantly, as E-Myth author Michael Gerber points out in his Foreword, John Jantsch is committed to sharing strategies that can be used with integrity. How refreshing to encounter a marketing expert who focuses on promotional activities that add value and are a win for everyone involved.

Finally - a REAL 12-Month Marketing Program  Feb 14, 2007
Let's assume the following:
1. You don't have $100,000 to spend on marketing, advertising & sales
2. You're just getting started (or need to improve) with your business
3. You plan on using the income you earn from your business to live on (versus the rich uncle approach)

Aside from a rich, generous and forgiving uncle, this is pretty much the first resource you need for your new business. Once you've mastered all the suggestions here, move on to other resources (all of which I like and have used) such as getting slightly famous, guerrilla tactics, swimming with the sharks and booking yourself solid.

The book truly is practical - lots of how's and why's and what a good [fill in the blank (press release, sales letter, etc)] looks like, with action plans and realistic suggestions. For instance, every building-your-business resource suggests "public speaking" to build awareness. While that's true, I've seen recommendations like "Join the National Speaker's Association" which, while seemingly good advice, doesn't quite work well when you have to provide at least three examples of previous public speaking performances to join. So, what's an entrepreneur to do? Well, this book has a section on realistic tactics with examples of individuals (and their company websites) who have succeeded getting into the public speaking route.

Duct Tape Marketing is at the core of any good entrepreneur's business development. That said, if you're a competitor of mine, I doubt you'll get what I got out of this - I can't barely market my way out of a bag with both ends cut off - so don't buy this. Instead, e-mail me for a special list of resources....
