    Excellent theoretical guide

    Written from a theoretical and academic viewpoint, the book provides solid advice and an excellent overview of the rainmaking process. As better explained in the books on selling the invisible, marketing services is a challenge and very few books on advertising or marketing are helpful. This book provides an excellent overview and some down to earth practical suggestions, but too few in my mind to be of much help. Its value is even less for the small firm or an individual professional. While one understands that it is hard to give both an overview and practical nuts and bolts, this book is balanced too much on the theoretical.

    Packed with Knowledge!

    Every professional service provider or consultant should own this handy marketing guide. Concise and smoothly written, it delivers essential information without beating around the bush or leaving out anything important. Once it is on your shelf, don¿t let it gather dust. From strategic advice on which marketing method may work for you to concrete help on presentations, fee-setting and client relationships, this is packed with utility. Many professionals neglect marketing because the time spent at it isn¿t directly ¿billable.¿ Of course, that¿s like a farmer neglecting planting, because it isn¿t harvesting. The book is thorough, if not particularly innovative, and it does get a bit rah-rah at times, but those are minor quibbles. We recommend this practical, complete and essential set of instructions on how to generate clients for your professional service practice.
