I love the saying 'standing on the shoulders of giants', in the way that you can take what other people have experienced and learn from their mistakes and discoveries. To that extent, I constantly read highly recommended business development books.
One of my favourite business books with regards to marketing techniques is from ex-swimming pool salesman Marcus Sheridan with his book 'They ask you answer'.
In his book, Marcus Sheridan explains how 80% of the buyer's journey is now being completed before people contact companies. As well as how 27% of all Google searches are questions.
