Both links offer a “look inside” so you can explore before you buy, and I priced the book to be quite affordable.
This guidebook reflects my marketing and research knowledge and perspectives, built around your endorsement: readers have shared the ideas in this guidebook over 6,000 times using social media.
The guidebook is structured into three sections:
- Winning ideas that marketers and researchers can use to succeed in a digital, social, mobile age,
- My top 10 most shared blogs that elaborate this framework from consumer, brand, shopper, and media perspectives
- Six new digital and social media metrics that are critical for brands to monitor and manage.
Underlying all content in this guidebook is the notion of answering the shared question by marketers and researchers, “What does marketing success look like in a digital, social, mobile (DSM) age”? Marketers and researchers are playing catch-up ball…marketers are trying to catch up to consumers and researchers are struggling to catch up to the real time needs of marketers. Today, researchers still monitor brand KPIs that mostly come from brand tracking which largely follows the old model…survey-based, backward looking, slow, and continuing to reinforce a TV-first marketing culture. Today, by seeking information and sharing their thoughts via social media, consumers have become part of the media equation and marketers need to adjust their beliefs on how to use media…paid, owned, and earned for brand-building. Researchers need to develop new metrics and ways of harnessing digital and social data to reflect this new worldview or risk becoming like the Encyclopedia Brittanica: great work made irrelevant by the cadence of digital society.
