Creating Business Growth: 21 Successful Marketers Reveal Their Top Business Marketing Secrets

Temporary Cover Whilst New Cover is Being Designed

For the last few weeks I've been researching the name for the book I've edited. 

The working title was OK but I wanted something more dynamic so I carried out some online research.


The title that I've settled on is Creating Business Growth: 21 Successful Marketers Reveal Their Top Business Marketing Secrets because it does what it says on the tin.  My research indicates that as much as people want to know about things like social media, websites etc there is a rider to this.  They only want to know lean about them because it Creates Business Growth.

So Creating Business Growth: 21 Successful Marketers Reveal Their Top Business Marketing Secrets is an obvious title in that it deals with their underlying objective by dealing with the steps that will lead towards it.  The fact that we have brought together over 20 of the leading marketing people in the world is a bonus!

In a few days I'm launching a website where you can register for a free copy of the book when it hits the Amazon bookshelves.  Watch this space and don't miss out on the aggregated wisdom of over 20 leading marketing authorities. 

There has never been a book like this before .. and as someone that follows me I want you to have the chance of a free copy before the price is set for the foreseeable future.


If you want to register for a free copy please request one on the form to the right of this page.






If you want an advance copy for review I'm also giving away a small number even before it hits the Amazon bookshelves.  If you want one please email me now and I'll explain how this works.  

My Recommended Good Copyright Free Music Source For Your Projects

Figure_conducting_music_300_clr_12892Finding Good Copyright Free Music Can be a Nightmare.


I've needed music for a number of projects in recent weeks.  Projects have included animated videos, movies, adverts etc.  When searching for new sources I found this site .. Melody Loops.


You have to pay for an initial licence for each piece but therafter use is copyright appears to be free (please read the small print yourself as conditions and rules do change over time).  Bul discounts are also available but with starting prices of just $10 getting a licence for one piece isn't going to be a deal breaker.

When is the Best Time to .....People Ask Me When is the Best Time to .....


  • Start a Business
  • Open a New Branch
  • Diversify
  • Enter a New Market
  • Launch a New Product
  • Retire
  • Do lots of other things ....


The truth is if you wait for a good time it is always going to be next week or next month.  There is only one good time and ....... that Time is Now.


How Millionaires Do It

Many years ago I observed a lot of millionaires, asked a lot of questions and made a significant discovery.

 Every Millionaire I spoke to said that the best time to do anything is NOW.  They don't hang around pondering things for months.  They decide what they want to achieve, plan carefully and quickly execute their plans.

What our customers say

What Our Clients Say

As Principal I employed very few consultants but did employ Stefan on the basis of a clear ROI.

I would recommend him to any college, university, business or Government agency as a reliable consultant who will become indispensable.

Ioan Morgan CBE
Latterly FE College Principal & CEO,

He certainly does what he says on the tin...... I've worked with Stefan for many years and he has an uncanny knack of cutting through the ****, focussing on the essentials and coming up with creative and inexpensive marketing ideas that work.

David Morphew

Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity “Stefan was an expert on one of our recent teleseminars speaking about Marketing Secrets Revealed. He gave some fantastic value and gave some great tips that small business owners could use to apply to their businesses straight away. You can get a copy of the recording at I have no hesitation recommending Stefan and think he's great at marketing. It's certainly no accident that he's known as the Marketing Magician.

Helen Dowling

“Stefan was our speaker at a memorable CIM course recruitment event a few years ago. In an hour he covered a wide range of EMarketing topics giving the audience both inspiration and actions they could take with them to implement immediately. Even those that had recently completed marketing degrees commented how practical his advice was and how it clarified what they had previously only learnt in an academic way. Stefan's practical background as a marketing practitioner comes to the fore when he explains, not only what EMarketing is, but how to implement it in a practical way where the ROI can be measured.”.

Rosie Phipps, Principal, Oxford College of Marketing

“Apart from being a incredibly friendly and approachable person, Stefan has a wealth of knowledge in how to effectively market small and large businesses and has applied this knowledge with great success. In short Stefan is a real marketing guru!.

Steve Tipson

““Stefan Drew is a true marketing professional. I have no hesitation in recommending Stefan's marketing expertise. My first contact with Stefan was in 2009. The distance of our office locations (U.K. vs. Australia) did not concern me as it was evident from our first international phone call that my company was in good hands. 2010 presented the GFC which brought with it many marketing & financial challenges. By following Stefan's marketing plan to the letter I could never have imagined such a successful outcome for my business. Thank you Stefan.”.
