49 Marketing Secrets
(THAT WORK) to Grow Sales

You want to grow sales but you are not sure how?

You know the right marketing program will take your business to the next level but you don’t know who to trust?

There is so much “noise” that you don’t know what works?

If you feel that way, you came to the right place.

49 Marketing Secrets (that work) to Grow Sales was developed with you in mind.

Hi, my name is Ron Finklestein and I created this book. I am a business coach and consultant. When I am hired, I go though an assessment (Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, Threats) to better understand the problems of my clients. As I peeled back the layers, I kept running into a reoccurring theme.

Marketing: it was a marketing problem.

As we discussed the problem I would hear over and over again:

  • I don’t know what works.
  • There are so many “experts” I don’t know who to trust.
  • It cost too much.

I decided I wanted to solve these problems and that is how the book was born.

I went to marketing experts and asked them what they did to help their clients and I went to business owners and asked them what they did to grow their business. There were four goals for the book:

  • Affordable.
  • Only effective, PROVEN marketing methods would be included
  • Include step-by-step instructions
  • Author’s contact information available so you could learn more

49 Marketing Secrets (that work) to Grow Sales accomplishes all four goals!

Behind The Scenes

Business owners, national marketing experts and other very experienced people collaborated to create a marketing book that contains marketing secrets that work.

Just a Few Examples:

  • Using the Marketing Mastery Advisory Board one company refined his marketing message, added 50 new customers and $45K in additional revenue.
  • By focusing on “outcomes,” one individual obtained a new consulting contract simply by changing his business card. A simple business card created a $4.5K consulting opportunity.
  • With a written Internet Strategy, Don Philabaum of IAC was able to develop a global client base that included Europe, Canada and Asia that produced hundreds of thousands of dollars in new business over a three year period.

The secrets in this book work because they are being used by the people who wrote the book. They are experts in growing their businesses.

  • Randy Geller discusses how he launched a new company by focusing on the one ideal customer.
  • Dennis Laughlin grew his company 3500% using the marketing secret he describes in his article.
  • Ron Finklestein attracted 300 people to a conference using the information describes in this book.
  • Jack Howe gives us just one example of a client taking an exhaustive examination of the facts to solve a marketing problem: “A Small Food Equipment Distributor was being pressured by one of his manufacturers to increase sales in his territory. After an exhaustive examination of the facts we prepare a report that proved this distributor had a 72% market share – the highest of any distributor in the nation. Needless to say, not only was the manufacture happy but the distributor was able to gain additional margin due to his market penetration.”
  • Kurt Minson increased an accounting firm’s revenues 15% (measured after one year) with only the definition of their Prime Idea. They had been absolutely flat for 13 straight quarters before that.

Pete Johnson, or Dr. Strategy, has spent the last twenty-five years researching, analyzing, and advising some of the world’s top performing organizations on how to improve their bottom-line performance. As a result of this extensive ongoing research he’s pioneered a unique, fluid approach to strategic planning that makes it possible for you to adapt immediately on demand to the critical issues you might encounter in competing for success in today’s constantly changing global marketplace.

Pete shared this story:

“I was in for a follow up meeting with one of my clients. I provided 5 copies of his company’s Strategic Business Plan that was the compiled from the previous two day annual management planning retreat. The copies were nicely packaged and comb bound, as this represented the byproduct of my work with them. The CEO, without really looking at it, put it in his briefcase and said he’d review it at home that night.

“The next day he had an appointment with his banker to discuss potential funding considerations for an upcoming acquisition. The banker asked him if his company had some type of business plan that the bank might review to evaluate their soundness (of their strategy). The CEO recalled putting the Plan in his briefcase the night before. Despite not having reviewed it, without hesitation he pulled it from his briefcase and showed it to the banker. What seemed to impress the banker the most was that they conducted a very organized annual management planning retreat and produced an actual plan (document) – all within 30 days. The CEO’s copy contained the consultant’s “red-inked” comments and areas of priority. It was titled… “Working Strategic Plan”. Needless to say the bank responded favorably to the CEO’s request.
