We are excited about the release of our new book, The Accidental Marketer Case Book! It complements our original book – The Accidental Marketer.

If you are interested in buying The Accidental Marketer Case Book – click here to order the book from Amazon or here to order the book from Ingram Sparks.

In each chapter of The Case Book, you will find “the story behind the story” of great marketing successes from companies you know.  

You will gain access to the tools that created these strategies, and learn how to customize them for the unique circumstances of your industry and markets. 

You can use these tools independently or they can be used to build upon each other if you are creating a strategy. These tools are designed to get you and your team thinking and planning. Ideally you would have 4-6 people working in a team, you may have several teams in a workshop setting. Often teams start with minimal data – and use the tools to discover what “We Wish We Knew”.  Research helps you further explore and validate your plans.
