Marketing is changing rapidly.

Don’t get frustrated. Get scrappy.

The Internet, social media, and content marketing are powerful equalizers. And while that’s exciting, it’s also a challenging time to be in marketing: with so much work to do and an ever-changing array of platforms, features, and networks to master—all on a tighter budget than before.

Think only big brands with big budgets can do big things? Think again! More than budget or staff size, what matters most is attitude. Nick Westergaard, a digital marketing expert who has helped countless businesses of all sizes develop their big-brand presence, knows that with a scrappy mindset even the leanest marketing team can generate powerhouse results.

In Get Scrappy he’ll show you how to: • Think like an underdog—driven, strong-willed, persistent • Do more with less—and meet your goals • Build a strong brand with something to say • Find inspiration and ideas in unexpected places • Develop helpful blog posts and videos • Reach people effectively and efficiently with social media • Use questions to spark conversations and content • Integrate your strategy across touchpoints for a unified brand experience both online and off • Measure what matters—and focus your effort on what works

Your result will be a reliable and repeatable system for reinventing your marketing, even as marketing reinvents itself. With its practical frameworks, hacks, tips, idea starters, and more, Get Scrappy is the easy-to-follow guide that can make your marketing consistently great.
