Jamestown, RI, February 03, 2012 --( Kristin Zhivago’s "Roadmap to Revenue: How to Sell the Way Your Customers Want to Buy" has been nominated for a 2012 Small Business Book Award in the category of Marketing.

“Roadmap to Revenue: How to Sell the Way Your Customers Want to Buy” gives business owners and managers a fast way to shift to a customer-centric culture. Zhivago’s interviews of thousands of her clients’ customers, and her experience as a Revenue Coach, have convinced her that a company’s current customers can reveal how to sell successfully to new customers, if you ask them the right questions at the right time, in the right way. It is possible to literally “reverse-engineer” successful completed sales to produce new sales in quantity.

Instead, you can know how to make it easy for customers to find you, buy from you, and have a pleasant experience with your company, products, and services.”

While there are many thousands of books published each year, it's those of interest to small businesses and entrepreneurs that the Small Business Book Awards seek to honor.

"With so many books being published each year, we wanted to recognize those that made a difference to small business owners and managers and startup entrepreneurs," said Ivana Taylor, Book Editor at Small Business Trends, which produces the Awards. "Our annual Small Business Book Awards are a way to highlight the books that entrepreneurs are reading and learning from."

“The Awards are an honor to the authors who write books for the small business and entrepreneurial community,” says Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends, "For many of the authors, writing a book is a labor of love. They deserve recognition."
