The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) will soon publish the closest thing to a textbook for architectural, engineering and construction marketing under its new imprint, SMPS Publications.
A/E/C Marketing Fundamentals: Your Keys to Success will be released in Los Angeles on Aug. 20 at Build Business, SMPS’s annual conference. Authors and contributors Julie Huval, Holly Bolton, Brad Thurman, Francis Lippert, and Sylvia Montgomery will be on hand to sign copies.
“The publishing landscape has changed dramatically over the past few years,” says Jaime Flores, vice-president of marketing and communications for SMPS. “Creating our own imprint provides a great opportunity to keep costs down while utilizing developing technologies such as Print–on-Demand (POD). The imprint allows us to offer valuable, industry-related publications for SMPS members and A/E/C professionals.”
A/E/C Marketing Fundamentals was originally published in 2004 by BNi Publications, Inc. The newly revised version was edited by Richard Belle. It’s the first book being released under the imprint SMPS Publications and will be available in paperback and as an e-pub through Amazon.
“The newly revised A/E/C Marketing Fundamentals is an essential handbook for all marketing and business development professionals in the A/E/C realm,” says Brad Thurman, principal and chief marketing officer for Wallace Engineering. “Whether they are new to the industry and are seeking proven marketing principles or someone who is preparing for the Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) Exam, this is a must read.”
