(ST. CHARLES, IL) – Local resident and business owner, Leah Hoppes, has written a marketing book for other small business owners. Marketing Chomp: Powerful Modern Marketing to Grow Your Business Now.

Ms. Hoppes sits on the Board of Directors for the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce and was named the St. Charles Chamber Member of the Year for 2015. Prior to that, she served two years as the Marketing and Promotions Committee Chair for the Downtown St. Charles Partnership. Her company, Vision Force Marketing created the vibrant logo for the downtown rebranding of St. Charles which was unveiled just last year.  

She is a successful entrepreneur and owns Vision Force Marketing with her husband, Sean Matthew Whitfield.

She has written Marketing Chomp for the benefit of any business owner who wants to own their space in their market. “Her approach is honest, often very funny, and always refreshing,” says publisher, James Serpento. “Leah doesn’t pull any punches and she isn’t afraid to draw the veil back on the kinds of things that can lead business owners down a very costly path.”

Published by Kingman Row Entertainment, Marketing Chomp became available in early October on Amazon and is available in paperback and on Kindle. Copies can also be ordered by visiting

The Entire Marketing Process

Marketing Chomp will take the reader from strategic planning through execution. “Marketing does work,” Ms. Hoppes points out, “when you have the right mindset, the right strategy and you implement relevant, cutting edge tools.”

The Next Best Thing To A Private Consultation

The book is more than merely instructional. Those who complete the exercises in the readable and approachable narrative will be empowered to market their enterprise, service or cause and realize their business or personal goals. While the accomplished Ms. Hoppes cannot consult with every business owner or professional who might benefit from her expertise, Marketing Chomp is the next best thing.

Connect With Potential Customers

During her career, Ms. Hoppes learned that many business owners and professionals had a certain expertise the public needed, but were not able to adequately market or promote their abilities or merchandise.  “Marketing Chomp inspires the reader to take action and to take the time to really develop a strong message and learn how to get it in front of the right audience,” Ms. Hoppes said.  “I walk the reader step-by-step through the marketing planning process. They won’t get lost and they won’t be left behind.”
