I accidentally found this book in the airport, when I was looking for reading material for a long flight, and I am glad I did. The cover is a little lame, with the sub-title "A Simple Battle Plan for the First-Time Marketers." It probably should have read "It's the phone stupid! You've got to track what's going on or you're out of business!", but that probably wouldn't sell or would not have been P.C. enough for the publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

All kidding aside, it probably should have read "The Secret Weapon to Your Business Success"

What the book did do, was illustrate the building blocks for any successful marketing plan, where your business doesn't rely solely on the Internet, shopping carts or walk-ins - which is just about 90% of all businesses I can think of. The book forces you to ask a lot of tough questions about your business - questions that, in my experience as a business consultant, are going to make you geometrically more money and reduce your stress.

Instead of trying to scam you into buying something that is not going to help you, the Levinsons offer "common sense" ways of improving your business and they help prevent you being ripped off by expensive or time consuming leads.

Chapter 4, entitled "The High Powered Weapons in Your Office", is where the book really starts getting into the meat. "What is the weapon they are talking about?", you might ask - it's the telephone!
The Levinsons go on to say "there will rarely be as intimate a moment as those you spend on the phone with your customers and prospects." They then offer some no-brainer advice on taking control of your phones - advice, by the way, that I have found to be very true - and also offer excellent worksheets to help you.

I own a small business. I have sat through many seminars,and read many books on business management and marketing. I usually have pages of notes and am able to incorporate one or two ideas that are "pearls".

I had heard the term "Guerilla Marketing several times and finally went to a local bookstore to see what it was. I scanned this book and was unable to put it down.

Jay had coined the term "Guerilla Marketing" many years ago. This reprint was updated for the most relevant marketing ideas in the age of the Internet.

The idea is this, a "Guerilla Marketer" uses other resources to their maximum while using "cash" to a minimum.

A tiny synopsis of a few pearls are below.

A "Guerilla Marketer" learns about his business, his customers, and his competition. He gets close to his customers and gives them an outstanding experience. The idea of creating "Raving Fans" is critical.

A "Guerilla Marketer" thinks outside the box.

A "Guerilla Marketer" tracks marketing closely to see what works and what does not. He then drops what does not work and tries to improve on what does work.

A "Guerilla Mareketer" makes sure he has an excellent product or service and strives to improve it at all times. There is something truly unique about his product or service.

Customers of a "Guerilla Marketer" are treated better than by other busineses.

Customers of a "Guerilla Marketer" are loyal repeat buyers, and recommend others.

A "Guerilla Marketer" spends a lot of time working "on the business rather than just in the business".

A "Guerilla Marketer is patient knowing that there is a long cycle at work.

A "Guerilla Marketer is relentless.

My weak point is marketing. This is filling in the holes in my knowledge. I like what I've read so far (about 25%). At this point I would recommend it. I will report back as I read more.
Ok I'm back. The book is done. A colleague has also read and liked this. A client is now reading my copy (something ebooks still can't do, i.e. Lend. Amazon's Kindle lending is only a baby step in that direction).
The book was able to tell me very precisely the difference between advertising and marketing. What marketing is. How to change my thought patterns to align with the new marketing methods (which are not major media due to cost and low viewership).
The "200 methods of marketing" that the author touts is a bit overdone, because many were obvious, even to a marketing midget like me. But in that same list were some good ideas.
Again, the book deals with changing your pattern of thinking about marketing. The authors definitely did the job here.
I recommend this book to everyone.
Kudos to the authors.

See my LinkedIn profile for my rant on ebook lending.
