From the Inside Flap

Wouldn't it be great if you could just sit there on your duff while customers came to you—with no need for cold-calling, prospecting, hard-selling, or flat-out begging for business? Too bad it doesn't work that way in the real world. Or does it?

In Gravitational Marketing, you'll discover just how easy it is to create a low-cost, high-powered marketing system that attracts a steadily growing stream of customers into your business day after day, month upon month, for years to come.

Marketing mavens Jimmy Vee and Travis Miller team up with celebrated rainmaker Joel Bauer to show you how to attract customers naturally. Following ideas and methods that have been thoroughly tested and proven by the savviest marketers in a broad spectrum of industries, you'll learn how to control, navigate, and respond to changes in that constantly evolving consumer landscape.

First, you'll have to clear your head of the misguided advice you've been getting from day one, including "you have to pay your dues" and "it's all about getting your name out there." Next, you'll learn how to make your business ESP—Enjoyable, Simple, and Prosperous—by creating an intelligent marketing system that positions you as an expert and causes qualified and interested prospects to come to you, begging to give you their business!

Central to your phenomenal new success is your firm determination to be master of your own marketing. Once you've taken charge, you'll find out how to identify and target the customers most in need of your product or service, create a compelling message that will draw those customers into your gravitational field, and choose the most efficient and effective media through which to contact them. You'll learn how to captivate new prospects with memorable presentations that will leave them begging for more; invigorate them with ingenious solutions to their problems; and motivate them to take the action you desire, while feeling that they are in complete control of the transaction.

Stop pounding your head against the wall trying to win over prospects who don't need what you're selling, won't return your calls, and couldn't care less about your grand ambitions. Read Gravitational Marketing and find out how easy and simple it is to naturally attract a steady steam of qualified buyers who seek you out, pay more, stay longer, and refer everyone they know.

Let me start by saying that this book does have a few good ideas in it. In fact, implementing one or two of their clever plans might be well worth the cost of the book. So why do I rate it so low?

First, many of the other reviewers have hit the nail on the head when they say that this book is primarily material repackaged and not so well disguised from other books...many other books. If you're a savvy consumer, you already know most of what they have to say.

Second, but perhaps more importantly, most of their concepts revolve around shady-to-unethical tactics at worst, and unsavory intentions at best. Today's consumer is smarter than ever and is looking to do business with ethical types. If you trick people into opening your direct mail piece or lure them in with big promises and then fail to deliver, they'll flee!

Some of their suggestions break the Cardinal Sin: they waste people's time. Here's free marketing advice: NEVER waste a potential customer's time. And whatever you do, don't make them feel foolish for believing in you for one second.

I won't tell you not to buy it, but I can say that I won't be keeping my copy.

This book is one of the most helpful books I have ever read. It gives you meaningful marketing strategies that actually work no matter what your business is. I have used many of their suggestions and it has increased my business dramatically. After reading this book I looked at marketing and advertising in a totally different way, and it gave me the confidence to use some new mediums to drive more traffic. I believe it is a must read for anyone in business today looking for more customers.

Format: Hardcover
This book for the most part is just a rewrite of markeing principles found in countles books. It is eerily similar to "Monopolize Your Marketplace: Separate Your Business from the Competition Then Eliminate Them" by Richard Harshaw. They cleverly reposition things that most experienced marketers already know. For example they replace the 4 Ps of Marketing with their "Three Rings of Gravitational Marketing" Nice try guys. Though the information is a strict repeat of information you can find anywhere the entertaining presentation may be worthwhile for small business owners who need a marketing refresher and who in general find marketing to be the most boring part of their business.

These guys share with you things they know are tried and true... because they have done them and they work.
Put the emphasis back on YOU!
Hard to argue with that.
Entertaining and informative at the same time.

Buy the book, check out their video blog [...] (so funny) and just make your marketing FUN. Their energy is contagious... or should I say "gravitational" (sorry, I couldn't resist) and it makes you realize that marketing can be exciting and not just another CHORE you do in your business. So get the book and be sure to visit their website for all the free gifts that come along with it and start pulling people in! I've never purchased a book that came with so many free gifts. lol, Very cool!

Nothing Groundbreaking here.

As other reviewers have alluded to, this is just reworked information repackaged. When I saw the endorsements on the back cover, I thought this book would be a winner. Far from it.

The authors run a business in Orlando, FL called Gravitational Marketing. This book is obviously just a informercial to promote their business.

There are other books out there that are much better. If you must buy it, or are at least curious, I would suggest buying a used copy for a penny. There are plenty of those available.
