Critic Reviews

"Marcia Yudkin is the true north of marketing direction. Strategic Marketing is a compass for finding your ideal position, clients, brand, and future, as well as a superb guide to maximizing perceptions of your value and the reality of your fees."(Alan Weiss, PhD, Author, Million Dollar Consulting and Thrive!)
"What's amazing about this book is the way Marcia applies the often-fuzzy, amorphous notion of 'strategy' in straightforward terms that make it easy to apply to your business. She draws a roadmap with Action Steps following each chapter, so there's crystal clarity on how to define and refine your business's strategic direction. It's like a Dummies book on marketing for Smarties." (Ann Handley, Chief Content Officer, MarketingProfs, Co-Author, Content Rules)

Not what I was looking for

Too light. Not real marketing. I feel disappointed.
I would never listen to another book of this author.
