4.0 out of 5 stars A little gem September 23, 2013
By Sephage
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Full disclosure: I know the author, but he also knows that I don't pull punches on reviews so I hope that I'm not taking too much liberty in offering this review.

Slater has created a gem of a book: practical, easy to grasp, and valuable for those trying to get a handle on something (marketing) that for many (such as this reviewer) doesn't come as second nature. The book could use a bit of editing, but if you can get past that minor cavil (and for less than a buck, you should be able to do that) then a small treasure trove of practical tips and approaches await you. It's a quick read, and will not be useful or deep enough, I suspect, for those with a marketing background.

But for those who want to hone some marketing chops without getting a marketing background, Slater's storytelling approach to sharing his knowledge should prove very useful (and fun to read), and will offer a great introduction to some of the more important concepts behind how to execute an approach to marketing in the modern world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Timely and Timeless Wisdom September 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jeff Slater is a magical story-teller and has the unique gift of weaving in pearls of wisdom among the engaging storyline. His insights on marketing are both completely up to date (timely) and likely to stand the test of time (timeless). This is a great airport read, one you won't want to put down. I can see why the organizations Jeff has worked with have all been magnificent marketing successes. Kudos to Jeff and all those that read and apply these 21 precient lessons.

I am an MBA graduate and have been peppered with different marketing concepts throughout my career and classes taken at business school/undergraduate program and seminars. I find it refreshing that Jeff Slater condenses what he found to be useful and allowed him to be a successful entrepreneur and later on as the head of marketing for various organizations throughout his career.

The material in his book is in a format which is easy to read and digest. He adds a personal touch from his own life which adds some color to the points he raises. I would recommend this book to somebody new to marketing or even to somebody who has been doing it for a while as he brings a refreshing take to some of the everyday principles of marketing.

I love books written by people who've actually lived what they're preaching. This book is written by an entrepreneur who knows what he's talking about. Slater has successfully built brands and leveraged that experience into millions of dollars in revenue. Make sure you pay attention to chapter 5. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Putting heart and value back into marketing February 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am one of those people who hate being harassed by marketing militia's guerilla tactics for the sake of "hits to meet sales targets" - and to be blunt about it, it is like someone placed a urinal outlet right over my battery when it comes to the general approaches to marketing by the majority marketers and marketing companies! I don't like to be on the other end of "The method"!
I have to admit that I'm usually somewhat apprehensive when picking up any publications on entrepreneurship and marketing, BUT I was duly intrigued from the get-go with Jeffrey Slater's take on marketing through his stories and own experiences, through his passion for the human value connection, and the practical lessons imbedded in life's journeys.

Thank you Jeffrey Slater for putting heart and value back into the school of marketing :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Sales & Marketing 101 for the common man! February 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I, too know the author, as well as worked with Jeff Slater during his career at GoodMark Foods. I was in sales in and environment where sales & marketing did not clash like many companies in the CPG environment. Slater's book balances some great stories along with keen insight to marketing that can be absorbed by what I will call the "common man"! Most of his principles are really rooted in common sense and good professional business practices. Thought provoking to the point I see this as almost a reference guide to frequently flip back into ideas for my personal improvement.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Read for any Marketer February 17, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Jeff Slater wrote this book for the small business owner and inexperienced marketers. It definitely delivers for that target, but also to a much larger audience, regardless of their marketing experience. It is always good to be reminded of the basics.
This book is a fast read and each chapter makes an important point. The use of personal stories and experiences to illustrate each point is both compelling and memorable. Any organization can become unfocused. This book is delightful way to remind and restore that focus.
