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.

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

I really enjoyed this book. Levinson, who seems to be undisputed as the father of guerrilla marketing, presents the industry as a metaphor for living a more authentic and satisfying life in the 21st Century. He helps readers to see the importance of balance and humanity above profit, although profit is offered as a good quantitative measure of successful strategies. Levinson also stresses the importance of relationship building and maintenance. I found the book easy to read, with plenty of examples of successful businesses given to reinforce each concept. Each chapter offers lists of the do's and don't of effective marketing that I plan to post in my office as daily reminders as I develop my business and marketing plans. I look forward to other books in the series and I'm eager to put the tactics presented into practice.

This book is worth the read if you are just learning marketing. It is good for reference as you build your business. It's has many ideas and goes into how to implement them.

Some of the things I knew already but it was a good refresher.

It's worth the cost. 4 stars is a fair rating for what it provides.
