The Wharton Club of Charlotte is pleased to welcome author Guy R. Powell for the launch of his forthcoming book, Marketing Machine: The Secret History of the Future of Marketing (ROI)!Picture2.png

Marketers are faced with a plethora of challenges in delivering growing revenue in a predictable and cost-effective way.  As marketing expands in complexity with more and more online and offline media choices, marketers must still deliver the highest revenue for the least cost with the highest level of certainty.

Marketing Machine helps marketers build the right measurement infrastructure combined with the right analytics to give marketers the best information possible to make the best strategic and tactical marketing decisions. With the implementation of a Marketing Machine marketers build a clear competitive advantage that will be difficult to beat.

Here is what industry and academia has to say about this book:

This is Guy's fourth and best book on marketing – it really opens and unlocks the Marketing Machine. His work has helped me find high ROI marketing strategies that really work in a digital age and his tools are practical and can be leveraged by brands. Finally, I feel someone can answer the question of what drives high ROI in a marketing. I wish that Guy’s Marketing Machine can help marketers all over the world as it has helped me.

Marketing strategy, tactics, analytics and insights all come together with Guy's book.  He takes the operational aspects of marketing and combines them with measurement and analysis to show how marketers can deliver predictable revenue. A must read for all marketers at any level in any sized marketing organization. This book will also arm marketing students with the right approach to marketing management tools as they enter the workplace.
