Overview

Learn how to use Authority Marketing®

to build thought leadership and dominate your competition by playing a game no

one else knows is being played with this ground-breaking book!

Are you the Authority in your field? Are you recognized as a stand-out thought

leader, a published author, a keynote speaker, or a media personality? Are you viewed

as a commodity? A hard-working expert who is a commodity and has to compete on

every level, including price?

One thing is for certain: Authority doesn’t just happen; Authority is built through a

systematic process called the Authority Marketing System.

But how can you make this shift in an environment that is noisier and more crowded

than ever before?

If you are an entrepreneur, CEO, or professional who is frustrated with the traditional

approach to marketing and wants to grow your business and make a bigger impact,

this book will show you how to use the Authority Marketing System to create a clear

and trackable blueprint to shift yourself from a commoditized expert to a highly

visible Authority.

In this book you will learn:

• What Authority Marketing is and how

to use it to grow your business

• The Pillars of Authority Marketing

• How others have used Authority Marketing

to create unimaginable success

• Why thought leadership is your most

important secret weapon

Authority Marketing isn’t about ego or attention—it’s about accelerating

the speed of trust so you are viewed not as an expert with something

to sell, but as a thought leader with important insight to teach. Start

growing your Authority today!
