“A lot of marketing talk focuses on technology: Twitter, Facebook, viral videos, clicks. Linda Popky understands that technology is an important piece of the puzzle, but not THE most important. Her back-to-basics approach builds on foundational values like trust, relationship-building, and resilience to create customer interest and loyalty.

“As a board member, interim CEO, and C-level executive coach, I love the themes contained in Linda Popky’s approachable and engaging book Marketing Above the Noise. In so many cases, when I begin working at the strategic level with companies, they do not know exactly who their customers are, how to engage their prospective customers, and to view marketing in the strategic context where it can catapult a company to its rightful place in the market. Linda makes marketing practical and actionable, using terrific metaphors and stories to make her points so that all executives will want to own this book and leverage its sage advice.”
