John Jantsch, author of Duct Tape Marketing calls the Marketing Hourglass a cornerstone of the Duct Tape Marketing. This Webinar will include the Duct Tape Marketing Principles such as Know, Like, Trust, Try, Buy, Repeat and Refer that make up the hourglass.

Dager added, "The Duct Tape Marketing Hourglass is an integral part of the Lean Marketing House concept. Applying Lean and Theory of Constraints to this concept opens up a completely different understanding of the Hourglass. It simplifies it for many individuals and companies that have difficulty looking at marketing as a system. It puts theory into actual practice. I have not found a quicker and easier method from converting a stagnate and non-systematic marketing effort into a flood of increased sales. Not only will this method increase sales, but typically it will decrease your marketing cost in a relatively short period. The end result also includes a continuous improvement process to keep your marketing ahead of the competition."

John Jantsch added, "I started using the concept of the marketing hourglass. The top half indeed resembles the funnel concept, but the expanding bottom half, to my way of thinking, adds the necessary focus on the total customer experience that ultimately leads to referrals and marketing momentum."
