Houdini’s marketing strategy was to go to a new town, walk into a press building, and get them to suspend him mid-air in a straitjacket. As he wound himself free, he gave everyone what they wanted: a free show to the audience, a free article to the press, and a sold-out show to himself the next day.

That was 100 years ago, but the fundamentals of marketing are still the same: if you know how to give people what they want, it’s your job to attract their attention. In other words, if you have a good product, then you need good marketing.

Today, the part we often forget is that, first, you have to be able to get out of a straitjacket. As a result, a lot of marketers talk their way into the press building, only to deliver a dud performance. In other words, if you don’t have a good product, don’t bother marketing.

Better Marketing is here for those of you who need to gather attention for a great product. Our goal is to help you become the kind of marketer the world desperately needs: the kind that can deliver and deliver the right way. We’ll cover every aspect of what it means to be that kind of marketer.
