From one of the leading experts in viral and social marketing-market your business effectively to today's customers
For generations, marketing has been hypocritical. We've been taught to market to others in ways we hate being marketed to (cold-calling, flyers, ads, etc.). So why do we still keep trying the same stale marketing moves?
UnMarketing shows you how to unlearn the old ways and consistently attract and engage the right customers. You'll stop just pushing out your message and praying that it sticks somewhere. Potential and current customers want to be listened to, validated, and have a platform to be heard-especially online. With UnMarketing, you'll create such a relationship with your customers, and make yourself the logical choice for their needs.
Traditional marketing methods are leading to diminishing returns and disaffected customers. The answer? Stop marketing, start UnMarketing!

Stop marketing. Start UnMarketing.
Consider marketing. It's a vital aspect of running a successful business, but lately its practices have been taking a beating. And why not? Do you like getting cold-called just when you sit down to dinner? Having your mailbox clogged with random offers you immediately toss? Do you listen carefully to the ads that interrupt your favorite TV show? No? If these experiences are "marketing," you—and your customers—probably prefer whatever's the complete opposite.
Instead of trying the same tired methods, what if you could have a new kind of conversation with your customers and prospects? If you're ready to stop marketing and start engaging, then welcome to UnMarketing.
Taking an on-the-ground look at the changing landscape of business-customer relationships, UnMarketing gives you innovative ways out of the old "Push and Pray" rut, which assumes that messages sent out blindly and broadly will magically lead to loyal, long-term clients. Instead, you'll discover a new, highly responsive "Pull and Stay" approach that brings the right customers to you through listening and engagement, enabling you to build trust and position yourself as their logical choice when they need you.
With a smart take on using social media as a new toolset rather than just a fad, UnMarketing features numerous bite-size chapters you can consult and apply according to your unique business requirements. These chapters are all bursting with practical tips and real-world examples, giving you a sense not just of what works (and what doesn't) but of how and for whom.
If all business is built on relationships, then, no matter your enterprise, building good relationships is your business. UnMarketing supplies you with a winning approach to stop ineffective marketing and put relationships first—then reap the long-term, high-quality growth that follows!From the Back Cover:
