Book Description

Stop marketing. Start UnMarketing.

No one likes cold calls at dinnertime, junk mail overflowing your mailbox, and advertisements that interrupt your favorite shows. If this is "marketing," then the world would probably prefer whatever is the opposite of that.

If you're ready to stop marketing and start engaging, then welcome to UnMarketing.

This updated and revised edition includes new information on building relationships through Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+. 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!
