As a small-business owner or solopreneur, you wear many hats - perhaps the most important of which is marketer. But these days, with so many new ways to reach customers and clients - and only so much time in the day - it's hard to know where to start. Should you be using social media? Email? Blogs? Video? SEO? Small business marketing doesn't have to be a mystery. It's just a series of simple decisions (and the action steps to implement those decisions) that will help you regain the clarity, confidence, and control you need to succeed.

  • Get noticed using the power of 3PR
  • Position yourself as the go-to expert in your field

GOOD Book. However...

What did you like best about Do It! Marketing? What did you like least?

The book overall surely worth 4
The only reason i gave 3, is that there is a lot of self promotion and hidden sales agenda by the author for him self (for example, while writing this review and listening to the book, i heard 2 self promotions for the author, so you can imagine how much self promotion in there...
When i purchase a book, i did not buy a advertisement magazine, i expect it:
1) Ads free
2) Well structures, concise, straight forwards, without lablabla stories
The book could surely have been made shorter (a bit not much), but still every minute for me counts

After all what i mentioned above,
i would surely listen to the book again, because i do believe that there is a lot of useful information in there
i wish i could filter things out

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

would have TOTALLY removed ALL the self promoting agendas in the book

What three words best describe David Newman’s voice?

i do NOT care about the voice
i DO care about the CONTENT

Do you think Do It! Marketing needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

There is not one complete book in the market, i think the question is not relevant over here

Any additional comments?

If i was the author I would have TOTALLY removed ALL the self promoting agendas in the book

Truly amazing book

I learned about David Newman from a podcast hosted by my industry’s National Association. I decided to check out this Audible book and I am amazed at the amount of amazing content David shares. I have told everyone I know in business about this book. I listen to at least 2 different business-related books a month for the last 5 years and this is the best one I’ve heard on marketing. You won’t be disappointed. Highly recommended.

Marketing Genius

Highly highly recommend this book for any solo entrepreneurs, speakers or consultants looking to market and build their business. David gives you the big picture strategic view of building your marketing mixed with not only the tactical points and actionable roadmap to accomplish it, but he gives TONS of tips, tools, and resources in addition. My only regret is that I didn't get the book one year ago.

Really Helpful Book

It's worth a read/listen. Be warned however that the extras he alludes to are nothing but info-ads that you'll be signing up for.

Entertaining and informative

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

David's particular style makes this book an entertaining read, and his self-deprecating humor makes the digestion of what he's saying.

What does David Newman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

David brings a frankness and a "You don't have to do X to get Y, you just have to do this and do it well." Where some people would hide behind trying to convince you that they are really important and know things, and if you're lucky by the end of the book they will share their secrets with you, David hands out his thoughts and secrets because he knows how to create that relationship with the reader and than sense of rewarding value being earned by listening/reading it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened this book on the train, picking up where I left off was easy.
