42 Rules of Marketing (2nd Edition)
What’s it about?
“42 Rules of Marketing (2nd Edition)” (also available in our marketing bundle) by author Laura Lowell is a compilation of ideas, theories, and practical approaches to marketing challenges the author has been collecting throughout her career. The idea was to create a series of helpful reminders; things that marketers know we should do, but don’t always have the time or patience to do.
The author, Laura Lowell, says “As you read through the rules, I only ask one thing. Don’t take them literally. They are composed of interesting stories, anecdotes and observations. Keep the book on your desk as it is intended as an “entertaining antidote” to long, boring conference calls. I suggest you don’t read them in order, but flip through them until something strikes you. If it sparks an idea, or reminds you to do something, then I’ve done what I set out to do.”
Feel free to pass the rules from this marketing book along to anyone you think might benefit from a friendly little reminder. Use them to start a discussion about what other people think the rules should be. I invite you to share your “rules” and be part of an ongoing discussion. After all, these are my rules. What are yours?”
