Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I write my books with a lot of dedication and from the heart. I have a passion for online marketing and for supporting and encouraging others to make the changes that can grow their online business.  Online marketing is an ever-evolving industry and, as such, keeping up with the latest trends can be challenging.

My books are aimed at small businesses, startups and those who are looking to take their business online for the first time. I have a lot of experience in the industry and want to share my experience and insights with people who are looking to maximize their online potential. As well as writing books I also run my own publishing company (globalndigital.com) that supports and encourages independent authors to take their work and themselves to the world.

I hope you enjoy my books and I'd appreciate any feedback and reviews. I'm always looking to challenge myself and improve the way that I work.  I openly encourage my readers and clients to let me know what I can do differently in the future.  Finally, remember that everyone's got at least one book in them.  Ever wanted to write and publish yours but don't know how? Check out my website (globalndigital.com) to see where I can help you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Thorough, Well-Organized, and Complete December 26, 2012
By Leslie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While no expert, I thought I knew a thing or two about online marketing. This book showed me that a thing or two was pretty much all I knew. I am so impressed! The subtitle states this is a "Beginner's Guide to Online Promotion". I will agree that the first 15% is a "beginner's guide". After that, this author takes online advertising education to a whole new level. This is a great book for beginners and experienced marketers alike.

After the Introduction, the author delves into the many types of online advertising in a way that is well-rounded, interesting, not-too-little, and not-too-much. She provides information about targeting advertising to the right market; metrics; AdWords; social media advertising on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn; and then discusses affiliate marketing.

I have purchased several books on AdWords that I just couldn't get through. I've spent time on the phone with an AdWords rep trying to get my head around sitelink extension and display network options for my clients. This author presented the information in sizable chunks that made it understandable, helpful, easy, and doable.

Similarly, the sections on social media are presented in solid, well-organized, sizable chunks that make incorporating and using the information much more easy than other sources I've read. Affiliate marketing is the topic I knew the most about in this book, and still, I learned quite a bit about options I've not pursued or thought about and more about how to improve both my own and my clients' websites.

I've not read Gabriela Taylor before, and I will quickly be reading more of her books. I highly recommend this book to both beginners and seasoned marketers.

Nothing overly academic. This text Provides a quick but relevant and up to date summary of digital advertising strategies. If you are looking for a in depth study this might not be sufficient, However it works well as a QuickStart guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Advertising online the right way. January 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As small business owner we are trying to maintain and grow our online presence, with the hopes of creating a larger customer base over time. We have tried several methods but really had no success with anything we tried.

Gabriela provides the details and explains everything very clear in this book. The first section she covers the intro/history of online marketing and how a lot of the online movement got started. Then she jumps into how the many methods of online advertising work, along with SEO and trends in advertising online.

I really liked the section covering all different types of online advertising and the explanation for each made it much easier to implement. The next section goes hand and hand covering the ways to target prospective new customers with your online ads.

One area that needs to be implemented these days is the area of social media and using it to advertise. Gabriela covers these topics thoroughly and shows easy way to get them up and running in no time at all.

Advertising and marketing is changing every day, but one thing for sure is the online and digital advertising is more popular than ever. If you need to develop a plan to advertise online this is the book for you. The book is filled with gems to help begin your new campaign in online advertising. This book is highly recommended to anyone who wants to find the right way to advertise online.

5.0 out of 5 stars Newbie Friendly But Also For Veteran Marketers Too! January 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With personal experience in online marketing for over 10 years, and seeing the changes that have taken place, I was intrigued to see what this book had to offer. I have many friends and associates that are fairly new to the industry and a beginner's guide would be super helpful for them. I look forward to referring
this book to them.

Starting with some history, the reader can get a better grasp on how and why online marketing has become such a big hit...mainly because anyone can use it. Then, Ms. Taylor breaks it all down in easy to understand language and lays out the benefits and disadvantages of each method. This helps the reader understand what to expect before engaging in a certain type of advertising. Throughout the book are links to outside resources where you can verify information or gain deeper insight.

I think this book is great for the newer online marketer, the offline marketer who wants to venture online as well as the seasoned "pro" because there is so much useful content from beginning to end. And, if you are a seasoned marketer, don't sell yourself short thinking you don't need to learn something new. We all have weaknesses in marketing and this guide will be useful to you and if applicable, your team.
