Spotlight on Marketing Books: Small Business Book Awards

Without marketing, nobody knows you exist.  In fact, your business could be truly awesome, but only you and your intimate set of clients or customers know it.

Marketing gets the message out.  If your product or service is as good as you KNOW it is, somebody will want what you have to offer.  Marketing is the key to getting their attention.

And that brings us to the 5th article in our series highlighting the nominees for the 2010 Small Business Book Awards.  Today we shine the spotlight on marketing books.
