  • Nancy Marshall understands what it takes to grow an audience to grow a brand. That’s why I am glad she has written about her methods and experiences in this book. One way she has grown her audience is by podcasting, and I am so glad that I was able to inspire her with my own Entrepreneurs On Fire podcast. With her podcast, her columns in Forbes.com, and now her second book, I believe Nancy is ‘on fire’ just like the entrepreneurs in my audience!

  • I have used Nancy Marshall’s first book, PR WORKS! in my public relations and marketing courses at Thomas College for the last several years. Nancy’s information is directly applicable to what’s happening right now in the real world. She provides a guide to how PR programs are planned and implemented now. Her new book follows up her originally advice with practical direction on how to manage both new and old media. I am eager to assign her new book to my incoming students and I know that they will benefit from her experience in the public relations and marketing fields.

You could lose everything tomorrow and be forced to rebuild — but — if you have an audience that knows you, likes you, and trusts you — you will be successful in your pivot. For more than 30 years, Nancy has been helping clients grow their audiences — and along with it — their brands. Now in her second book, she generously shares the practical and tactical steps that have contributed to her client’s success so you can take what works and apply it in your business, too.
