Return on Relationship by Ted Rubin & Kathryn Rose- A Must Read for Any Business


ROR Book Cover

If you own a business or even serve on a board at your local preschool- you’ll want to read the new book “Return on Relationship”.   Co-authors Ted Rubin and Kathryn Rose showcase how the old method of doing business is being updated via social media.  Yes, as always relationships are important.  How you interact with people is essential to your success, but integrating social media into this process is also pivotal.

Many companies are reluctant to embrace social media for various reasons.  But social media is a reality.  By taking the age old method of building relationships face-to-face, today’s businesses need to expand this idea into the online world.  Mass marketing is being replaced by “word-of-mouth” recommendations via Facebook and Twitter.   Learn how best to implement this philosophy with “Return on Relationship”.

Return on Relationship is available for pre-order via Amazon for $16.99
