Make Your Mark with a Tattoo, Not a Brand

Marketing Expert Clint White Launches Debut Book

This press release was orginally distributed by ReleaseWire

New York City, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/16/2022 -- "The perfect book for the aspiring entrepreneur, or any small business." — Robert Grede, Best-Selling Author of Naked Marketing: The Bare Essentials

With over 30 years in the business of marketing, Clint White has a simple message for entrepreneurs: you are not a brand and that is a good thing.

Before you start your business, before you spend a dime on marketing or hire another brand strategist, you need to consider something: You don't have a brand. Everyone from aspiring entrepreneurs to seasoned business titans believes in the power of branding. But the truth is, most businesses, nonprofits, charities, and social movements aren't brands. They are tattoos.

Ben Bilbrough, Founder and CEO of, says, "Clint White's refreshing new take on growth marketing is so smart. This book resets expectations on brand-building and instead offers marketers realistic, actionable tactics to drive results. Tattoos, Not Brands is an enjoyable read as well as a reference book every ambitious organization and dynamic small business should keep handy."

Unlike market-driven brands, tattoos are mission-driven. And if you have a tattoo, approaching marketing from a brand mindset will prove–inevitably–unsuccessful. Drawing upon research, psychology, and decades of experience, Tattoos, Not Brands: An Entrepreneur's Guide to Smart Marketing and Business Building offers an innovative approach to marketing.

Avenue Magazine calls Tattoos, Not Brands a "must-read for anyone who is looking to grow a business, organization, or movement. Full of smart practical guidance that reverberates universally—from luxury goods to social impact and everything in between."

For author Clint White, listening to audiobooks has been his favorite way to consume and learn from books. Entrepreneurs are notorious for having an active, busy schedule, so having an audiobook format for Tattoos, Not Brands was an absolute must.

"I am particularly excited about the audiobook, as this is the way I personally engage with content," says White. "Producing it together with voice artist Mike Bratton and Bobby Dunaway of Indigo River Publishing was a true pleasure; hearing the prose that I have spent the past 10 years developing delivered in that format gave me additional confidence that the Tattoos concept will speak directly to so many business builders that are in the growth stage."

White's publishing debut Tattoos, Not Brands is available on Amazon, Audible, and major book retailers.
