Guerrilla Marketing in 30 Days
Distilled from the best-selling “marketing” book series in history (with more than 14 million copies sold worldwide in 39 languages), Guerrilla Marketing In 30 Days encourages busy business professionals and CEO’s to hurdle the excuses of time, money, or motivation, and take dynamic strides toward new client acquisition and increased sales by following a 30-day marketing blueprint.

  • Do you have MORE customers than you can handle?
  • Can’t decide where to begin marketing?
  • Aren’t sure how to put the pieces together or can’t stay motivated and focused?

Al will also discuss what to do if your advertising budget is virtually non-existent and how to get massive PR without an agency.

“Effective marketing is the key to business survival, growth and success,” Al states, “and right here (Guerrilla Marketing In 30 Days) is the journey.” Starting at ground zero, this book cuts a swath though the jungle of marketing madness, and outlines an effective plan of attack focused on the day-by-day implementation of key marketing fundamentals.

Gleaned from the same ingenious strategies detailed in the best-selling series, Guerrilla Marketing In 30 Days delivers a powerful summary of essential marketing tactics and cuts to the heart of Guerrilla Marketing, while taking readers to levels of success they may have deemed unreachable.

Now for the first time ever in this format you can learn the leadership secrets of some of the hidden gems of leadership.

Who would have ever thought we could learn leadership lessons from Attila the Hun or Star Trek or The Sopranos. Now you can design your own motivational, inspirational, leadership keynote that will be delivered by Al Lautenslager. The good news is you get to design the content.
