Personal Coach and Business Mentor Expert, Matthew Linklater, Emphasizes Attention to Effective Sales and Marketing Practices in Business

Matthew Linklater, author of Quick Witted: Saying the Right Thing to Win Big and trainer in the areas of business and personal success, writes about the critical factors in driving business to your open office doors – sales and marketing.

Chicago, IL – December 10, 2010– Matthew Linklater, certified practitioner and coach of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, expert in Time Line TherapyTM, hypnotist, speaker and author, recently published a blog on his website ( debunking the 1989 baseball film’s well known phrase, ‘if you build it, he will come’. The blog, titled “If You Build It… He Won’t Come Without Sales & Marketing,” argues that clients are obtained by expertly orchestrated sales and marketing efforts on the business owner’s part, as well as the well trained staff.

Linklater writes, “Do you have the mentality in your business that if you build it, the perfect customer will just walk in your door, followed by a team of others? You have spent years perfecting your craft, developing your trade, and now you’ve got your office set up and ready for business. But there are two pivotal skills that must be mastered before clients will come knocking on your doors: sales and marketing.”

“We consider sales and marketing the two black holes that must be filled to maintain a successful business. Without them, your business may never fully be made known to your target market consumer segment. But where do you start? How can you determine which advertising efforts you are currently pouring money into, really work? Where do you start in building brand awareness for your small business, so you can drive sales and your bottom line?” argues Linklater.
