Marketers have much less of a captive audience to shout at because modern technology helps people avoid unwanted, interruptive marketing messages. So now, instead of interrupting what people are interested in, you have to be what people are interested in. That’s why Seth Godin maintains that “Content marketing is the only marketing left.”
This book cover the history of content marketing, which is actually a pretty old form of marketing that is now going through a resurgence. It shows you how to define your marketing niche and content strategy. And it walks you step by step through the process of developing content that informs, entertains and compels action. But it also includes how to measure your content marketing in order to improve it. And it has lots of great examples and case studies.
It truly covers the content marketing waterfront.
It’s a tour de force. It’s ...epic.
And that’s why Fortune Magazine named it as one of “Five Must Read Business Books.”
If you are new to content marketing or want to read just one book about the topic to get real, smart real fast, this is your book.
