Sadly, most adults and most businesses do not understand or take advantage of the fundamentals of successful marketing. the data shows a Las Vegas slot machine offers greater odds of success (32%) than the average sales message, new product or service (25% success rate).

Importantly, every method has been real-world validated during inventing projects with such leading companies as American Express, Johnson & Johnson, John Hancock Insurance, The Ford Motor Company, Tropicana, Frito-Lay, Procter & Gamble, Nike, Bank of America, Roche Diagnostics, Circuit City and Walt Disney.
The methods have also been proven to work for small businesses. The book details case studies of small businesses that, by using these methods, have increased sales by 10 – 50% without spending more money!
Learn how to sell more with less effort.
Meaningful Marketing is a powerful new approach to sales and marketing that will multiply the impact of every dollar you invest and every hour you spend working.
Meaningful Marketing is about honesty. It’s about respecting your customers’ intelligence. It’s about focusing your energies on how you and your offering make a genuine difference in your customers’ lives.
The alternative to Meaningful is Mindless Marketing. Mindless Marketing is about using sales and marketing tricks and gimmicks as opposed to the actual merits and virtues of your offering to make the sale.
New research by the authors indicates that Meaningful marketing initiatives are twice as likely to deliver sustained success versus Mindless efforts, and four times less likely to require significant price discounting.
What makes this book’s teachings more reliable and reproducible than others is that, instead of being based on “guru opinions,” it’s grounded in hard data on consumer, industrial and business-to-business marketing.
After reading Meaningful Marketing, you will know how to more effectively and efficiently market and sell: Your brand, your services, our products and even yourself!
