Endorsements - Smart Marketing Lecture Notes

"My college major was Marketing, and I worked for a Fortune 50 company for 15 years in P.R. and Marketing, so I can honestly say I have a strong Marketing background.  However, Katie's Smart Marketing Lecture Notes on CD  takes abstract marketing ideas and applies them concisely and with originality to entertainment businesses, in many unique ways I'd never considered.  This is definitely a "must-have" if you want to grow your business effectively without spending a fortune on advertising."

Hello Katie:
I hope you and yours have had a very busy and happy holiday season. Thanks to the notes on marketing I bought from you some time ago, and your great ideas and suggestions, I increased the amount of work I was able to get this Christmas. Your ideas really work, because they are based in your real experience, they are not something you just got from a book or something like that. I do appreciate your sharing your experience with other entertainers. Thank you for that.
