Praise for Changing The Channel

"Changing the Channel is a valuable ally for any business owner willing to go beyond the 'same old' marketing in their industry. Tribby and Masterson draw on their own experience at Agora, one of the direct marketing giants of our age, to show you not only what to do, but how to do it. Get yourself a copy of Changing the Channel, a quiet corner, and a couple of highlighters—you'll discover dozens of simple actions you can take to grow your business beyond what you thought possible."
—Howie Jacobson, PhD, author of AdWords For Dummies

"I just finished reading Changing the Channel, and all I can say is WOW! This is the only book I've ever come across with an easy-to-understand, yet comprehensive approach to leverage both offline and online channels (a combination that is often confusing, even to the most celebrated marketing gurus). This book is a must-read for anyone and everyone who has anything to do with marketing that must deliver real results to the bottom line."
—Rich Schefren, CEO, Strategic Profits

"What Michael and MaryEllen have done here is to crystallize decades of classic marketing and online wisdom and experience into a practical, easy-to-repeat formula that anyone in business—from a small startup to a large corporation—can follow and produce and measure their results. An excellent book that inspires action. Applying the principles in the final chapter alone is enough to revolutionize any online business."
—David Cross, Senior Internet Consultant, Agora Publishing

"If you want to put your business on the fast track, Changing the Channel is a must-read. Michael Masterson and MaryEllen Tribby lay down a clear and proven road map to greater success. In Changing the Channel, they outline many ways of reaching prospects, building relationships, and maximizing customer lifetime values. Changing the Channel is a must-read for all entrepreneurs."
—Lou Betancourt, Publisher, StreetAuthority.com

    Good marketing primer for the new small business owner

    Small business owners who could use some advice on their marketing strategies will love this book. It shows you how to understand all of the marketing channels at the ready, and how to leverage and balance them for your business' success. Whether it's web leads, print ads, or cold calls, you need to have a good method for the combined approach that will earn you the most customers. Too many small biz owners put all of their eggs in one basket when it comes to marketing. I suppose folks new to marketing or running marketing for small businesses can wow their colleagues with the authors fancy "multi-channel marketing" strategy terminology.<BR/><BR/>I run a small business and also recommend two books that have helped me greatly in recent years. The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book has helped me with the ups and downs as well as in my discipline as a leader and Squawk!: How to Stop Making Noise and Start Getting Results is a book I give to all my managers to ensure there aren't any seagulls hovering in my company's hallways.
