Derrick head shot Derrick M. Guest, CEO Griot's Roll Film Production inc

New York, NY - March 27, 2014 - Derrick M. Guest, CEO of Griot's Roll Film Production & Services Inc., has been in business 10 years.  He wrote the book I Built It But They Ain’t Coming: The Marketing Mogul’s Manual on How to Pursue, Date, and Engage Your Customer after seeing so many businesses in Harlem, New York shut their doors for good.  Many businesses have gone out of business because they didn’t have a marketing plan or budget to promote and build their brand.  The book goal is to help startups and business owners start to think about marketing strategies before they open that store front or after they have been open for awhile to improve and build their brand.  Derrick M. Guest winner of the British Airways Face of Opportunity Award and the 2011 Charles B. Benenson Project Enterprise Entrepreneur of the Year Award has grown his business through online marketing and building off line business relationships.

Everyone can relate to building relationships, whether it was with peers in High School, College or on the job people have to build relationships to get ahead.  This book is a realistic hands on approach to how we network all through our lives but don’t call it networking.    No matter what stage of life you are in you can connect to the practical real life situations described in this relationship building book. 


Terrie M. Williams, best selling author of The Personal Touch: What You Really Need To Succeed in Today’s Fast-Paced Business World and Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We're Not Hurting says “I Built It, But They Ain’t Coming  breaks down complex marketing concepts and relates them to real life situations, setting this book apart from other business books.  Small businesses finally have a book that speaks to them


Wendi Caplan-Carroll, Area Director, Northeastern USA at Constant Contact, calls the book “a street-smart, well-focused marketing book.”
