“Jay Levinson and Shel Horowitz have got it right. No business can go it alone today. There’s far more to gain by teaming up with competitors than ignoring their existence or bad-mouthing them.

There is a halo effect from hanging around with the best people in your field. Try it!”

“As a marketing consultant, copywriter and merchandiser, I know firsthand, (1) that a profitable long term business hinges on strong customer relationships and repeat business, and (2) how much harder it is to develop a new customer than to please an existing one. Jay Conrad Levinson and Shel Horowitz’s innovative new book, Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green, takes this concept well beyond customer satisfaction. Jay and Shel show you HOW to build mutually beneficial and profitable relationships not only with customers, but with employees, suppliers, and even competitors. This partnership approach is both powerful and profitable. A terrific and long-overdue book.”

“Marketing requires looking at the glass as half full instead of half empty in order for a kinetic exchange of ideas and relationships to perpetuate.”
—Karyn Zoldan, owner, http://Bridgemarketing.com
“The kings of frugal bootstrap marketing have made the case for putting people first. Which people? Clients. Prospects. The people you do business with.Business in this cyber-age, where computers talk to databases, and bots make lots of decisions—when intelligent machines are supposedly taking the place of thinking people, Jay Levinson and Shel Horowitz remind us that it’s all about people. All about relationships. All about people dealing with people.
“But that’s just the beginning. Conventional Marketing Wisdom (how’s that for an oxymoron) says that critical mass requires 7 impressions within (depending on your product) anything from 18 months to just two weeks. But Shel and Jay place that hoary old shibboleth in its place—EVERY single marketing impression can be THE one that motivates the prospect to reach for that checkbook!
“But that’s not all—far from it. For example, forget about zero-sum marketing—you can win AND your competitor can win. In fact, Shel and Jay show you how, if you do it right, you can even turn your competitors into allies. Talk about radical!
“And in example after example, radical notion after radical notion, Jay and Shel don’t just make the assertion about something that challenges everything we thought we knew about marketing—they give readers chapter-and-verse examples that make the case for one simple concept after another that…well, could just revolutionize everything.
“As a long-time reader of both Jay Levinson’s and Shel Horowitz’s previous books, I have to keep wondering why I’m surprised to see such a remarkable collection of wisdom-busting innovative ideas, all in one place. The answer is simple: Their slap-on-the-side-of-the-head ideas are so at odds to what you learned in marketing school (or in the marketing school of hard-knocks) that they always surprise, always reward. Always gives you more than you paid for, more than you expected…BUT NEVER more than you really need to know in order to succeed.”
—Ned Barnett, APR, CEO, Barnett Marketing Communications, author of nine books on PR, advertising and marketing
“In today’s climate of corporate scandal and public cynicism, Jay Conrad Levinson and Shel Horowitz provide a deep breath of fresh air. They show, on every page, that not only is it possible to succeed by appealing to the good side of human nature, but that the resulting success is easier to achieve and more satisfying, far outdistancing the outcome of ‘take-the-money-and-run’ approaches. People need to know that doing the right thing not only feels good, it works. This book communicates that message without preaching it.
“Levinson and Horowitz’s well-documented real-life examples provide a framework for ethical, successful marketing. It’s well written, so it’s easy to read, not something that can be said of many such books. Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green should be required reading in every marketing class.”
—Mary Westheimer, Founding President, http://Bookzone.com
“It’s about time someone wrote a book about the way things REALLY work at the values and ethical level in the marketplace. Yes, there are scandals and scoundrels in business. But they’re truly in the minority. Because the people who last the people with whom others most want to do business the people who set the pace for the rest are quietly and consistently principled individuals operating in a basically decent way. This book spells out what those people are doing and why it’s to your advantage to follow their lead.”
—David Garfinkel, Publisher, World Copywriting Blog, http://www.worldcopyblog.com
“Do you believe that marketing means doing anything to get the sale and do in your competition? Shel Horowitz and Jay Levinson disagree, and in this book they show how putting people first can make you a marketing success.
“Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green says that nice guys don’t finish last. Honesty, integrity and quality are keys to building a successful business with repeat customers. According to Shel and Jay, ‘Too many businesses see marketing as a weapon of war. They think that to succeed, they have to climb over their competitors, fool their customers, and herd their employees into constricted conformity. We think that’s just plain wrong’
“Form partnerships with customers, employees, suppliers and even your competitorsthey will become a marketing force for you Taking on customers you can serve well, networking and forming alliances with complementary companies and competitors, being honest in your copywriting and advertising, and treating those you deal with the way you would like to be treated.
“Jay Levinson and Shel Horowitz are highly-respected copywriters and marketing experts, and both the “how-to” and the philosophy in this book make it clear why.”
—Cathy Stucker, http://IdeaLady.com
“Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green helps the reader understand that most aspects of business growth are not based on a zero-sum game. Your gaining of market share doesn’t necessarily mean loss of market share for your competitors. Many entrepreneurs never realize this and therefore stoop to unethical methods in order to surpass (some hope to destroy) others in their market niche. Jay and Shel help the reader, through easy to understand examples, learn techniques that yield a win-win solution for two or more business ventures This book makes a strong case for treating others as you wish to be treated. This approach helps the business owner enjoy his or her career rather than fretting that someone else might be ’eyeing their cheese.’ These are the types of principles—updated for today’s marketplace—that have built business leaders like Nordstrom’s, Avis, and Saturn. Study them, test them, reap your rewards, teach others the methods, and gain a greater enjoyment your career—and your life.”
—Jim Deitz, The Franchise Doctor
“This quotation particularly caught my eye: ‘Create value for others in everything you do. You help yourself best when you’re helping others.’
“That captures so succinctly my hopes for Gifts from the Heart. I wanted to create a book that had something new to say, and help fundraisers help themselves while we met our own objectives for the cancer society, while helping readers create a more caring holiday.
“I think our vision, which you sum up so beautifully, is the real reason that we have been able to sell 17,000 copies without a distributor or marketing budget. One of the unanticipated joys of this project, however, has been meeting customers who have become friends. I have penpals all over North America, who forward newsclippings and articles about people contributing in positive ways. I never expected that at all!
“You are absolutely right when you tell readers to develop good customer relations. And not just because you or I want to sell them something, but because we are increasingly in need of that connection in what seems to be a less-friendly world.”
—Virginia Brucker http://www.webelieve.ca

“During the summer, I read your latest book, Guerrilla Marketing goes green. It’s really good. Thanks. I was on the beach, in Ricionne, Italy, with my family and it was a wonderful summer reading.
I really liked the Chapter 8 about abundance I completely understand what you mean. When you are in the abundance business model, you are always busy with enough work.
I also liked the triangle of expertise. I did not know about this, but I though it was really hands-on ideas for every kind of job: Find 3 related areas where you can sell your work, and the fuel the other ones.
Keep up the good work,
—Benjamin Saïman, France
