Editorial Reviews

The first book to apply guerrilla sales and marketing tactics to the unique, high-pressure environment of the trade show floor. Packed with insider secrets, tips and techniques, it is ideal for any size business that wants to use trade shows as an effective marketing weapon. It covers how trade show selling differs from a normal sales call and how to select the hottest shows for each market.

How disappointing. Everything pointed to this book being a winner. But it started out trumpeting how wonderful it is (early warning sign). It stresses to the reader that the book was written specifically for small businesses (which is why I bought it). But it seems to talk excludively to large organizations. How many small businesses have "Trade Show Coordinators" who have to gain "upper management" support? Or have so many departments involved in the trade show that they need special meetings with just that committee? Or need to decide who on the "senior team" will be attending the show? Then the reader is offered these ideas for how to get their hottest prospects to attend the show: give some autographed artwork, sculpture or football to a few top prospects; for other hot prospets maybe Sony Walkmans, briefcases, cameras, etc. Thank goodness the reader is given a few tips on where they can call to hire a celebrety to fly in and join them at their booth or they'd be lost! Yeah, right! Maybe they just define "small business" differently than me. Bottom line? If you're on a tight budget and DON'T plan on increasing it by tenfold for your next trade show, don't bother with this book.

I just returned from a very successful trade show and I am thrilled to say that "Guerrilla Trade Show Selling" was the reason. We are a start up with a very limited marketing and advertising budget, but with the help of this book, we were able to get the biggest bang for our buck. I used the information in this book as the "Bible", following almost all of the recommendations to the letter. I have included this as a "Must Read" on my list.

Some helpful hints here if you want to make a good impression at a trade show. It seems geared more toward trade shows where selling actually takes place. The author does a good job explaining a methodical approach to turning your trade show presence into dollars and cents. It is actually exciting to read and gets you pumped up. Who doesn't like being a guerrilla? The shows I go to are more for networking, education and developing contacts with industry players. Nobody signs up on the spot. Although there is nothing wrong in trying because ya never know. But still I got a lot out of it that helped elevate my comportment at trade shows and stir up interest and that's what it's all about. I'd also recommend this book if you're doing your first trade show and you don't know what to expect, not only will this book take away the mystery, you will be more informed about how to conduct your business at a show than anyone else, and people will notice that.

People that gave this book low ratings probably wrote competiting books. Because there was mixed reviews, I didn't buy it online, instead I went to the store to see the whole thing. Within two minutes of looking at it, I was sold.
I'm an newly appointed advertising sales manager who went to one trade show and saw I needed help. So I bought this book. That was just 4 hours ago, and I already have 4 pages of ideas that I know will help me make a lot more $$$$$$.
I'm just writing this review so you don't get skeptical like I did. Its not filled with useless stuff to add pages. Its pretty good stuff that a relative newcomer to the game will find VERY useful. Hot Shots that know everything already and write bad reviews shouldn't be buying books like this anyway. right?

The review above who said, "Only for a 'small business' with a BIG business budget" completely missed the boat. Guerrilla Trade Show Selling is packed with creative ideas that you can use to increase your sales at trade shows, no matter WHAT your budget may be.

Even if you are a one-person business staffing a card table at a county fair, this book can help you avoid the most common costly mistakes (like dealing with shippers and unions) improve your location (just by asking) gather more high-quality leads (by keeping good records) and close more sales (by properly following up). NONE of these strategies cost a cent, and the potential payoff is huge.

Whether you're a big business or just starting, when you first pick up this book, you'll find plenty of ideas that you can use immediately to make a real difference at your next trade show.
And like most books that you read, not every idea will work for you. Yet you'll get enough ideas in the first several dozen pages to pay for this book 100 times over. Read the whole book and you'll pay for it more than 1,000 times over. It paid like that for me!
Best of all, the ideas are practical. While the authors suggest where to look for resources, they do so without being commercial.
I've bought nearly every trade show book printed, including all those available on Amazon. Guerrilla Trade Show Selling is the only one that I refer to before every show.
Get it. Read it. Use it. Profit from it.

This is a great resource! Our team booked over 200 qualified sales leads at our tradeshow with nothing more than the information from this book. So far with the follow up process we have closed 40% of the leads. The only way this book won't work for you is if you won't work the tactics!
