This book is hands-down the most comprehensive guide to content marketing that I have ever read. It provides the reader with ideas on how to engage customers, as well as how to create and offer useful content that can improve your business brand and sales.

Over the last decade, I developed hundreds of websites, and marketed them online for my clients. I've done a good bit of content marketing over the last few years, but I'm always looking for new ideas. So while many techniques in this book may not be new to advanced internet marketers, I was blown away by how thorough it was.

If you are a business owner, or still learning the ropes of internet promotion, Content Marketing for dummies is a goldmine of information. The book will teach you all of the details related to what content marketing involves, how to create your own content, and how to connect with potential and existing customers.

For web marketing newbies, this book takes all of the mystery out of blogging, creating videos, writing articles, and making the most out of Facebook and Twitter.

I've read some excellent content marketing books in the past, but here's what makes this one stand out: Resources. Whenever the book provides a marketing technique, it lists a variety of helpful websites to make your promotion efforts that much easier. Even though I was familiar with most of the marketing concepts in this book, I was honestly embarrassed that there were so many useful websites and applications that I didn't know about before. So even if you're an advanced web marketer, this book still has something to offer.

Content Marketing for Dummies is easy for anyone to understand, brimming with practical ideas, and has absolutely no fluff or filler. Buy this book if you want to improve your business brand and make more money.
