Why Choose Among Green Biz, CSR, and Profitability? You Can Have All Three
HADLEY, MA: Some experts say it costs too much to make your business Green. They claim that cheaters like Bernie Madoff are the ones who get ahead in the corporate world. They say that being nice to customers and even competitors, or providing any amenities, is foolishness.
Is that any way to run a business? You bet it ISNT! Jay Conrad Levinson—originator of Guerrilla Marketing, Uniteds Friendly Skies, and Allstates Good Hands—and award-winning marketing author/lifelong environmental activist Shel Horowitz team up to prove these naysayers wrong. In their latest book, Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green: Winning Strategies to Improve Your Profits and Your Planet (John Wiley & Sons, 2010, $21.95), these two true marketing experts offer a drastically more positive formula:
- Green and ethical businesses are actually more likely to succeed—IF they understand how to turn those commitments into marketing advantages
- The costs of going Green can actually be lower than the costs of continuing to pollute
- Green, ethical companies can slash marketing costs and at the same time boost response—by forming alliances with organizations that reach their target audience, by turning customers and even competitors into brand ambassadors, and by harnessing the power of their commitment to gain coverage in both traditional and social media
Yes, you want to build trust through your integrity—and you also want to build profits. Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green shows how to leverage both character and competence into profitable business ventures…Yes, you want your business to be as eco-friendly as possible. And you want to use that eco-friendliness to create swarms of eager customers, all but beating down your door for the privilege of doing business with you.
