    And Our Training for Small B2B Businesses

    If it’s your job to generate more (and better) leads for your Sales Reps, help them close business with the most profitable clients and keep customers coming back for more, you need access to our field-tested Marketing Strategies and training program.

    None of the content in the Marketing-Playbook is written by some academic who’s only seen it done. Or by a group of researchers who take a bunch of surveys to learn about other people’s experiences and then charge you to read about them. Or worse, a Consumer (B2C) marketeer who’s read about B2B Marketing & Sales and thinks B2B is “similiar.”

    Nope. The content and advice is the real deal. Strictly B2B. 100% real-world.

    Become a Member and learn how YOU CAN put our Marketing Strategies to work for yourself and your company today. There is absolutely no reason to learn B2B marketing on your own or to suffer the career-risk from trying new vendors or untested marketing strategies. With Marketing-Playbook membership, you are not ALONE.
