Scott A. Martin

If you want rapid, healthy, and sustainable growth for your business, there’s no shortcut. Hacks and tactics promising 10x growth might yield short-term results but won’t provide long-term gains. It’s time to rethink chasing “hactics” and shift your growth mindset to unlock the hidden potential within your business that can quickly generate ongoing waves of profitability.

Scott Martin calls this Groundswelling—galvanizing the hearts and minds of your audience to create buy-in, momentum, and untold power to grow your business.

In this book, Scott walks through the four steps to creating a groundswell: building your plan, giving value without expectation, growing your marketing ecosystem, and transforming your customers into advocates. You’ll have clarity on your purpose and finally be free to control your spending and growth without relying on paid advertising or gimmicks.

With patience and a focus on building relationships, you can unleash the exponential impact of building your Groundswell on your bottom line and the soul of your business.
