Why I revised and updated Duct Tape Marketing
Duct Tape Marketing is the small business marketing road map – A collection of proven tools and tactics woven together in a step-by-step marketing system that shows small business owners exactly what to do to market and grow their businesses.
When it was released in 2007 it instantly became a small business marketing book classic and has been read, cited and used to build tens of thousands of small business marketing plans that are simple, effective and affordable.
This guide, now totally updated and revised by the author (over 15,000 new words) combines insights gained from over twenty years of successfully working, in the field, with real-life small businesses as well as new sections covering:
- using content to be found
- fusing online and offline tactics
- how to create a total web presence
- practical ways to get more from social media
- using the marketing hourglass to run your marketing
There are no theoretical complexities presented in Duct Tape Marketing – just simple, effective and affordable marketing that sticks.
