Product Description: The days of professionals simply hanging a shingle and waiting for clients to beat a path to the door are long gone. The marketplace is crowded with new service professionals of all types--from CPAs and attorneys to health care providers and competing service organizations. Professionals must realize that their services, no matter how good they are, simply will not sell themselves. Services marketing is the key to the game and here is the most concise, easy-to-understand, jam-packed source of services marketing.

Professional Services Marketing provides a very readable and simple introduction to the marketing process for the professional service environment. It gives professionals an inexpensive way to successfully develop a strong client base and grow in a competitive marketplace.

Using a step-by-step approach, this new book provides both strategic and tactical guidance for both the new and seasoned marketing careerist. Distinguished expert and international authority Fred Crane offers a realistic overview of the marketing process and discusses the characteristics and difficulties involved in marketing and managing professional services. He provides solutions to those challenges starting with a marketing plan, moving through client management, and the marketing audit.

Professional Services Marketing discusses management principles and examines implications for site analysis, physical analysis and facility design. It explores the true meaning of communication in the professional service arena and what this means for the bottom line. A plus for professionals new to the marketing field, this practical book gives examples of professional services marketing ideas that have been put into practice successfully.

Professional Services Marketing can be read in a single afternoon yet retains an encyclopedic breadth of vision and covers every major issue in the field. Specialists have already praised the work as essential and unique in the literature. It deserves consideration not only as a guide for established professionals but also as a basic text for future professionals as they prepare for their fields.

Truly a practical guidebook for any professional, Professional Services Marketing shows you:
  • a “cookbook” approach to designing a marketing plan that is easily followed
  • how to take advantage of impression management and what it really means
  • when to apply professional services marketing ideas that can be put to work almost immediately
  • when to undertake internal marketing
  • where to apply relationship marketing
  • how to apply synchromarketing

    All professionals, from architects to veterinarians, will find valuable tips on marketing in this new book. Members in professional associations involved in training and professional development will also find helpful strategies for expanding their marketing capabilities, as will those teaching services and professional services courses in colleges and universities.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs.
