Guided by famed marketing consultant and best-selling author Perry Marshall, sales and marketing professionals save 80 percent of their time and money by zeroing in on the right 20 percent of their market — then apply 80/202 and 80/203 to gain 10X, even 100X the success. With a powerful 80/20 software tool (online, included with the book), sellers and marketers uncover how to slash time-wasters; advertise to hyper-responsive buyers and avoid tire-kickers; gain coveted positions on search engines; differentiate themselves from competitors and gain esteem in their marketplace. With the included tools they’ll see exactly how much money they’re leaving on the table, and how to put it back in their pockets. Sellers will identify untapped markets, high-profit opportunities and incremental improvements, gaining time and greater profit potential. Supported by online tools from Marshall, including The 80/20 Power Curve, a tool that helps you see invisible money, and a Marketing DNA Test, a personal assessment that zeroes in on one’s natural selling assets, this timeless guide promises to change the game for seasoned and novice marketers and sellers.

To my knowledge, Perry Marshall is the first person to recognize the layers of the Pareto distribution. Most of us realize the top 20% of the inputs produces 80% of the outputs, but few realize the top 20% squared produces 80% squared of the results. In other words, the top 4% produces 64% of the results. At a higher layer, the top 1% produces over half of the results. Just imagine how predictive power of the 80/20 rule can empower your business! Marshall provides many examples of how to apply the 80/20 rule to any business. Anyone who wants a more profitable business must read this book.
