“Shift reveals self-imposed barriers to profit and can be effectively leveraged as a business tool. Man, that alone would make me pick the book up. I am a CEO, President and owner that is in charge of marketing, but nothing in my background prepared me for the task.”

Shift explores 19 practical ideas, grounded in the science of behavior change, that can transform your marketing efforts and, by natural extension, your profitability. Shift is broken into three sections: Rethinking the Discipline; Connecting Marketing with Sales; and Planning and Implementation. It is not meant as a theoretical discussion, but a practical guide to help you add repeatability, measurability, accountability and effectiveness to the budget you assign to marketing.

This is not a book of limited tactical ideas or irrelevant art-school creative thinking. It offers a strategic, business-school approach designed to equip business leaders with the knowledge and insights they need to use marketing as it was intended – as a serious business tool that drives new sales and new growth.

What’s in the book?

Clear, concise storytelling. Shift cuts right to the heart of today’s business issues and offers proven approaches to help business executives find revenue through better marketing and sales.

My goal in writing this book is ambitious: to profoundly change how the leaders of small- to mid-sized B2B businesses approach marketing. Shift will inspire, encourage and empower business leaders to be more successful.

If you are responsible for driving growth in your business but you’ve run out of ideas and your continually frustrated with the wasted money and lost sales —then add Shift to your reading list.
