Advising companies on how to successfully expand and implement their strategies in new cultural markets relevantly has been the focus of my advisory work for over eighteen years. In The $3.5 Trillion Advantage – A Marketer’s Guide for Growing Revenue in Today’s America, I seek to accomplish three important goals.
Dramatically improve organizations’ business condition by raising consciousness of what’s working and what isn’t as companies set out to grow top line revenue new cultural markets in the U.S.
Reinforce that entering a new cultural market to grow revenue is serious business and requires an "all hands-on deck” and top level management approach.
Convey that existing successful strategies, business models, principles, methods and approaches companies employ don’t need to change, but they do need to be optimized for relevancy in new cultural markets.
