Recommended Reading - Selling the Invisible: A Field Guide to Modern Marketing

selling the invisible smallThis book has been out for almost two decades but is still probably the best one I’ve seen on selling that tackles the concept of intangibility.  Let’s face it, there’s been a shift in the overall economy over the past few decades where we’ve moved from manufacturing to more and more services, so understanding intangibles is becoming increasingly important.
