Editorial Reviews


Media Selling has set the bar once again—providing the new knowledge standard for the industry.  Whatever segment of media and advertising you’re involved in, you must read Media Selling to matter in the next-generation of media.” Dean DeBiase, CEO, TNS Media, Co-author of The Big Moo

 “Charlie Warner has trained more professionals in the art -- and science -- of selling radio, television, print, and interactive than anyone else.  I've had the opportunity to witness his insights at work, and this book is an invaluable tool for anyone hoping to succeed in media selling." Bob Pittman, Founding Member of Pilot Group, Co-Founder of MTV and former CEO of MTV Networks and  COO of AOL and AOL Time Warner

"Media Selling is the preeminent text for anyone considering a career or currently employed in sales. Incorporating traditional and new media, it details both the theory and real world practice of selling. Simply put, if you want to do sales well, Media Selling is a must read. It's the only book I will use.” Darryl Smith, University of West Florida

  “Charlie Warner’s Media Selling is a complete, thorough playbook that expertly explores how to win in today's cross-selling media environment." George Bodenheimer, CEO of ESPN and ABC Sports

From the Back Cover

For the past two decades, Media Selling and its predecessor, Broadcast and Cable Selling, have served students and professionals in the broadcasting, cable, print, and Internet industries as an indispensable tool for learning, training, and mastering sales techniques for these media.

This newly revised and updated edition addresses the significant changes that have taken place in media industries over the last few years, while continuing as a seminal resource for information on media sales. This fourth edition includes chapters on sales ethics, emotional intelligence (discerning and then matching the emotional needs of a prospect), and Internet selling. Praised by educators and sales training managers throughout the country, Media Selling advocates a solution-selling approach that one reviewer called “the best synthesis of behavioral psychology, common sense, and professional salesmanship I’ve ever read.”

Format: Paperback
This is more of a textbook than a book on the ins and outs of selling. You read about the different types of media and how they work. The information is valuable as a resource about mostly broadcast media.
