Professional Services Marketing | [Mike Schultz, John Doerr]

Professional Services Marketing

In the old days, professional service firms could survive without much marketing effort. Put together a team of good people, deliver strong service to clients, and you might get by just fine on repeat business and client referrals. For many, those days are gone. While repeat business and referrals are still necessary to grow, they're no longer enough to succeed.

    "Gives insight and good ideas"

    From start to finish, this audio book offers practical advice on how to market to, and reach your target customers. There is no dull moment. Have a pen and paper handy to remember some of great ideas that are featured.

    well recommended.

    "Great topic but delivery short of expectations"

    I listened to this book with high hopes but as an audio edition, it seemed very unstructured and messy, with some good nuggets of advice but overall not living up to its name. It lacked a clear structure and diverted from the given chapter's topic often, also repeating many things. The most important shortcoming was the complete lack of case studies and practical examples, while it kept using surveys, dry figures and quite abstract advice. The authors should read Made to Stick and rework their book!

    "Very Very Very Reinforcing information"

    If you in a service based business this a great book. It's a little dry but the content is well delivered and very substantial.

    I would recommend this book as a good read.

    "Good marketing tips"

    Wasn't wholly relative to my field of marketing but still an interesting and thought enducing book (narrated well). Some very good marketing tips and exercises.
