AVOIDING CRITICAL MARKETING ERRORS: How to Go from Dumb to Smart Marketing may offend marketers who don't recognize they can do much more with marketing, and it will probably disturb those who are satisfied with the status quo. 
Marketing is underutilized and losing its relevance. Ignorance of proven principles and failure to adopt best practices and quality processes is at the root of the decline of marketing's role and relevance in the present era. This decline is exacerbated by marketers not being held accountable or accepting accountability for providing a clear line-of-sight in driving financial outcomes and growing healthy brands. 
That's not smart. It's dumb marketing! Yet, in today's "age of abundance and sameness," where generally acceptable quality (GAQ) rules, smart marketing is more essential than ever. 
This book, written by Richard Czerniawski, a veteran career marketer, tackles critical marketing errors, those grave blunders, slip-ups and missteps, both of omission and commission, that not only lead to underperformance but further threaten marketing relevance and undermine brand potential. Importantly, it addresses what all marketers and their organizations need to do to achieve smart marketing, so it matters where it counts: in the marketplace. 
If you are one of those other marketers and senior managers who recognize they are, and/or marketing is, underutilized—regardless of the current level—and want to improve this situation, then this book will prove invaluable to you. If you are one of these marketers, you will not be offended by the content. Instead, it will provoke your thinking and assist you in your pursuit of achieving marketing excellence. 
"Any smart marketer should read this book – now!" Gilberto Dalesio, Chief Commercial Officer, SIFI 
"I can attest that Richard's focus on genuine marketing excellence delivers the incremental sales impact, ROI and accountability that everyone in the organization should demand." -  Peter Valenti, Division President, Hologic 
"This is a no-nonsense book with practical advice and plenty of examples on doing smart marketing from a successful, veteran marketer." Santosh Chaturvedi, VP, New Products Planning & Portfolio Strategy, Global Oncology, EMD Serono 
"This book will make you laugh at outrageous gaffes, wince in recognition of your own mistakes, learn how to avoid marketing traps, and most importantly, put your brand on a bullet train headed straight for brand loyalty." Robin Shapiro, Global President, TBWA/WORLDHEALTH

    The widely adopted, now classic book on influence and persuasion—a major national and international bestseller with more than four million copies sold! 
    In this highly acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Dr. Robert B. Cialdini—the seminal expert in the field of influence and persuasion—explains the psychology of why people say yes and how to apply these principles ethically in business and everyday situations. 
    You’ll learn the six universal principles of influence and how to use them to become a skilled persuader—and, just as importantly, how to defend yourself against dishonest influence attempts:Reciprocation: The internal pull to repay what another person has provided us.Commitment and Consistency: Once we make a choice or take a stand, we work to behave consistently with that commitment in order to justify our decisions.Social Proof: When we are unsure, we look to similar others to provide us with the correct actions to take. And the more, people undertaking that action, the more we consider that action correct.Liking: The propensity to agree with people we like and, just as important, the propensity for others to agree with us, if we like them.Authority: We are more likely to say “yes” to others who are authorities, who carry greater knowledge, experience or expertise.Scarcity: We want more of what is less available or dwindling in availability. 
    Understanding and applying the six principles ethically is cost-free and deceptively easy. Backed by Dr. Cialdini’s 35 years of evidence-based, peer-reviewed scientific research—as well as by a three-year field study on what moves people to change behavior—Influence is a comprehensive guide to using these principles effectively to amplify your ability to change the behavior of others.
