From the back cover:

As a health advocate, you may think about marketing and shudder. You understand its importance, but marketing seems like an incomprehensible time and money eater that just takes you away from your advocacy work.

Marketing doesn’t have to be that difficult to understand or plan. Nor does it need to be expensive to implement. In fact,  once you understand the basics, and see how they apply to your business, you’ll find yourself thinking of new ideas on a regular basis. You might even like marketing!

With 20+ years of marketing experience working with hundreds of professionals and businesses, the author, Trisha Torrey, began focusing her work on health advocacy in 2004 after suffering her own healthcare challenges.

Now she has written this book for you—a must-have if you run a health advocacy or coaching business, or hope to start one.  Your business success will be defined by your marketing success. It’s that important.

How this book can help you:

  • Optimize your outreach with advertising, your website, public relations, newsletters, print materials and more

  • Maximize your marketing budget with low and no-cost promotional tactics
