Do you hate to market? Do you think you are just not the type to be good at it? Do you market sporadically and stop when you get business, then not do it again until you need more work? Do you dislike networking and cold calling? The most critical thing for any small business is consistent marketing, and it is the one thing that small businesses neglect more than any other. They think marketing is hard sales, or going to events you don’t like to “network” with people you don’t know. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This book shows you how to find your marketing personality; determine who “your people” are and where to find them; how to choose two kinds of marketing that you will enjoy and actually do; how to measure your results; and gives you a template to create your own marketing plan. The marketing you like, is the marketing you'll do, is the marketing that works. Crammed with real-life examples, it includes directions on how to use Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, and 25+other kinds of marketing.

Christy Strauch grew up in Mesa Arizona, where the Mexican food is to-die-for and the summer heat nearly that. When finally old enough, she traveled to Los Angeles for college to study. She just wasn’t sure what. She graduated from Occidental College in four years, despite taking classes in almost every department. In 1989, she tucked her MBA in finance and marketing from UCLA in her back pocket and went to work as a sales representative for IBM. She learned the well-researched, classic sales techniques IBM was famous for, and also learned how quiet, retiring techies could be irritated when legions of salespeople showed up for sales calls. It took five years to realize she should work for herself: to exercise complete control over how she served her customers, what products and services she offered, and how she talked about them. She left the comfort of IBM and joined a small IT company, became a partner, and fifteen years and three mergers later, took it public and sold it. Finally in 2005, she took the plunge and started Clarity to Business. She’s always been a crusader, even a warrior, though she doesn’t know how to shoot a gun or how to fight (except with words). Her crusade has been helping small business owners make money doing the work they love. Christy has helped hundreds of small business owners create viable, prosperous businesses. They all excelled at the work itself—it was mastering the other half that held them back. When they became willing to look at their marketing, their numbers, their business plan, and their beliefs about money and success, miracles, monetary as well as spiritual, happened. Your Marketing Personality: Marketing You Like is Marketing that Sells, along with her first book, Passion, Plan, Profit: 12 Simple Steps to Convert Your Passion into a Solid Business plus The Journey of the Small Business Warrior series, teach small business owners how to embrace the business of their life’s passion. She is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) and an Associate Certified Coach (ACC). She’s worked with small business owners through the Phoenix, AZ, Management Technical Assistance program; the City of Mesa, AZ, Business Assistance Program; in addition to working with hundreds of other business owners across the US and Canada. Her favorite places in the entire world are Easter Island, the Grand Canyon, and her own backyard. She still adores Mexican food.
