Today You Have to Market Smarter

It's not enough to market for economic growth when thousands of other places are doing the same, warns John. You have to market smarter.

But although to many communities marketing is just using media--booklets, ads, the Web--John discusses other components that are more important.

In explaining that community marketing involves not only knowledge of marketing but also knowledge of communities, John presents three questions every place needs to ask. Illustrating points with real-world examples, he offers three ways to do marketing better. Marketing is not facts and figures, graphics, or creativity, he warns, but getting into the head of your prospect.

Places must create the right perceptions about themselves, he advises, and measure results to improve effectiveness and save money. With so many offering identical economic development advantages, John concludes, better marketing can decide the winners and losers.
