“Nancy Marshall understands what it takes to grow an audience to grow a brand. That’s why I am glad she has written about her methods and experiences in this book. One way she has grown her audience is by podcasting, and I am so glad that I was able to inspire her with my own Entrepreneurs On Fire podcast. With her podcast, her columns in, and now her second book, I believe Nancy is ‘on fire’ just like the entrepreneurs in my audience!”

“I have used Nancy Marshall’s first book, PR WORKS! in my public relations and marketing courses at Thomas College for the last several years. Nancy’s information is directly applicable to what’s happening right now in the real world. She provides a guide to how PR programs are planned and implemented now. Her new book follows up her originally advice with practical direction on how to manage both new and old media. I am eager to assign her new book to my incoming students and I know that they will benefit from her experience in the public relations and marketing fields.”

Rick Saucier, Professor of Marketing at Thomas College

“I was on the dormitory staff at Colby College when Nancy came in for her first year. Within a few weeks of being on the campus, it seemed that she knew more people than I did. I don’t know how she did it, but she seemed to collect friends wherever she went. And this wasn’t just students in her own class. This included professors, food service staff, janitors and even the president of the college. I’m glad she has developed a career around teaching people how to grow a network. For her, it seemed to come naturally.”

“Your audience is the most valuable asset of any business. You could lose everything tomorrow and be forced to rebuild — but — if you have an audience that knows you, likes you, and trusts you — you will be successful in your pivot. For more than 30 years, Nancy has been helping clients grow their audiences — and along with it — their brands. Now in her second book, she generously shares the practical and tactical steps that have contributed to her client’s success so you can take what works and apply it in your business, too.”

Stephen Woessner, Host of Onward Nation and Owner of Predictive ROI

It was clear to me from our very first meeting that Nancy Marshall and I were going to work well together and become great friends. She is a person people know, like and trust. Nancy hosts a marketing segment on the two-time Emmy nominated television show, Greenlight Maine, which I host on NBC, airing statewide in Maine and parts of NH. The advice Nancy gives to businesses and viewers is invaluable to help grow their brand. This book allows more people to benefit from Nancy Marshall’s knowledge and experience. Bravo!”

“Nancy Marshall presented to our team of loan officers and senior management at a company retreat. She talked about building customer relationships, growing your personal brand under the umbrella of the company brand, and making a positive and lasting impression. Everything she said was spot on, and the leadership team at the bank appreciated hearing these important pointers from an outside expert. I highly recommend her to any corporate or organizational team that wants to up its game in building a brand by building a network of brand ambassadors.”

Her presentation was both engaging and entertaining. She shared great stories about local employers branding success that we all could relate to. Nancy’s advice to us was very practical – lots of doable actions that we could easily bring back to our organizations. I would highly recommend Nancy to any group interested in learning about personal or organizational branding!”

“I attended Nancy’s master class: Do It Yourself Publicity for Crime Writers at the New England Crimebake. Too often one can attend a workshop or seminar and find it difficult to implement what was taught. That’s not the case with Nancy’s class. The workbook provided ensured I could follow the presentation that was jam packed with information. I’m pleased to say I have already started to implement what I learned. Her conversational and upbeat style added fun and flair to the event. Thanks, Nancy!”
