The Power of Lateral Thinking


Too often companies find themselves merely tweaking, tinkering, and dabbling around the edges instead of taking bold, decisive action. Too often companies look to more successful competitors for ideas of what to do next. Too often companies fall victim to the shiny new object syndrome and jump into whatever the media happens to be hyping at the time.

Ironically, none of these approaches leads to growth.

Rethink Your Marketing outlines seven unique strategies to break the mold of “business as usual” and uncover new opportunities to grow your business and stand out amongst the sea of sameness. The book teaches you to ignore industry best practices and to instead challenge your beliefs on what will result in success.

A Career Built on Rethinking Marketing

Tom ShapiroStemming from years of agency experience developing marketing strategies for startups, middle market companies, and Fortune 100 companies alike, Shapiro understands the potential of rethinking one’s marketing firsthand. When he joined the digital marketing agency iProspect as the 85th employee, the company relied on large industry events for the generation of new leads. Each event cost approximately $30,000 to $50,000 and was full of competition desperately competing for the attention of the attendees. So…how are you supposed to stand out in a sea of competitors who are all saying and doing similar things?

Answer: Stop and rethink!

Together with a colleague, Shapiro launched a series of small intimate events at less than 1/10 of the cost. The first two events produced multi-million dollar clients respectively and the local functions soon became the company’s top lead driver. The organization then grew to over 700 employees within five years. This is just one example of how taking the time to rethink your marketing can unleash powerful revenue growth.
