'Think Different' should be the slogan of all marketers who want their marketing communications to deliver a return. There is no point in being identical to the competition and saying the same thing - only perhaps a bit louder and across more platforms.

Profitable Marketing Communications: A Guide to Marketing Return on Investment encourages businesses to view marketing not as a cost, but an investment and added value.

Finally, it provides a blueprint to maximize the returns from marketing communications" (Kogan Page, publisher).
