"A timely, practical, and informative source, this is highly recommended to readers in online marketing as well as business students." --Library Journal, Lucy Heckman, St. John’s University

"[H]elps consumers and advertisers understand and manage the phenomena of the social media revolution. ...Participants in the never-ending connection who read and respond will be in a position to maximize their return, reaping success and remuneration in the global, interconnected marketplace of ideas, goods, and actions." --Pamela Harris Kaiser, ForeWord Reviews

"[T]hose interested in learning more about how to better engage an audience are sure to pick up applicable insights, regardless of their industry." --Publishers Weekly  

"If you've ever wanted to know what works in today's media world, why it works and how to execute it, pick up this book. If you're a seasoned online marketing expert, some of Burcher's tips will be familiar, but the theoretical background and insights he provides will still make the book worth reading. ...Burcher gives readers the tools they need in order to design their marketing system for success." --Business Pundit

"[I]nvaluable for marketers bent on successfully navigating the digital age. Teeming with examples, the book boils down a complex world bursting with media options in very understandable and relevant language. ...This is an exceptionally informative, relevant, and readable book. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readers, especially practitioners, academics, researchers, and undergraduate and graduate students." -- CHOICE, N. A. Govoni, Babson College

"I highly recommend the compelling and refreshing book Paid, Owned, Earned: Maximizing Marketing Returns in a Socially Connected World by Nick Burcher, to anyone seeking a fundamental approach to examining the overall media landscape as an integrated whole. ...the author provides evidence that at the core, the system is linked through the basic paid, owned, and earned model." --Wayne Hurlbert, Blog Business World

"Paid, Owned, Earned is an indispensable source of knowledge for anyone involved in the front line of marketing in the digital age. It covers all aspects of consumer engagement in an accessible and thought-provoking style." --John Taylor, Chairman, ZenithOptimedia Worldwide

"Paid, Owned, Earned should be required reading for anyone who works in media and marketing. This isn't just the future but the present. If you're not sure why your career hasn't taken off or why your products aren't selling it may be because you don't understand the concepts so thoughtfully articulated in this book." --Shiv Singh, Global Head of Digital, PepsiCo Beverages and author of Social Media Marketing for Dummies

"Paid, Owned, Earned is essential to understanding the new marketing landscape.In this book Nick Burcher not only explains how everything from search to social to TV is inter-connected, but tells you how to succeed. Ignore this book at your peril!" --Mike Moran, Chief Strategist at Converseon and author of Do It Wrong Quickly and co-author of Search Engine Marketing, Inc

"In a fragmented media landscape that is in constant change it is difficult for advertisers to get an understanding of the underlining dynamic and constantly changing concepts. Nick clearly understands both the theory and the practical implications and this book will help advertisers to enter the stage better dressed and more qualified." --Rene Rechtman, Head of AOL EMEA / CEO goviral

"Paid, owned, earned is the most misunderstood phenomenon of the social media revolution. This book is the first grown-up work that seeks to understand and explain the connection between the different elements without a biased view from one side of the triangle." --Greg Grimmer, Founder, Hurrell Moseley Dawson & Grimmer  

"[A] fine survey that will appeal to any business holding for marketing and advertising professionals, and offers a framework that reveals marketing opportunities inherent in socially connected media. …College-level marketing and business holdings will find this a winner!" --Midwest Book Review

"Explores the socially connected media landscape and examines the challenges that it poses for today's marketing and advertising professionals." --Journal of Economic Literature

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Drea Knufken on May 7, 2012
Format: Paperback
I first picked up this book because I needed an education on how to market my own material online (and I really trust the books that Kogan Page publishes). I've read several books on online marketing and social media, but frankly, they all read like hack jobs. "Just do these four things, we're not going to tell you why, and by the way, I'm Gen-Y and of course I'm right because I'm wired differently from you, fool." OK, not in those words, but that was the gist of these sorry tomes.

Burcher's book is much, much better. Not only does he provide a theoretical background on how advertising has changed, giving my brain a framework to start from, but he explains what works and why. I can't say I absorbed more than 1/4 of the book on my first read, but I learned enough to know that I need this book as a reference going forwards. I picked out about 7 things I need to do for my own online marketing strategy, which is fantastic. I also feel like I understand online advertising on a level that I previously didn't.

Below is the official review I wrote for a blog called Business Pundit. I'm not sure it's any more useful than what I wrote above, but nice if you like having loads of details before you buy:

From TV spots to social media, the tools of modern advertising have become diffuse. With so many channels available, where do you start? Should you sacrifice old media for Twitter? How do you get something to go viral?

The truth, according to "Paid, Owned, Earned: Maximizing Marketing Returns in a Socially Connected World," is that new media hasn't replaced old media. Rather, advertisers are operating in a new digital ecosystem, one based around networks, behaviors and people. The idea is to build a media system that optimizes your brand's presence.

Format: Paperback
Working as a social media marketing specialist, I have read numerous "industry" books covering everything from SEO to digital marketing. Burcher's Paid, Owned, Earned has been a breath of fresh air! He concisely and clearly lays out best practices in the interactive marketing space while telling a compelling story. The real-life examples are especially supportive of the overall goal of the book...to show how the marketing and communications landscape has forever been changed with the advent of the internet and social. I would highly recommend this book for anyone needing serious resources and guidance on elevating their digital marketing strategy.

Nick Burcher has written a very timely and comprehensive book discussing Paid, Owned and Earned. For example, his writings about where Facebook Ads is going in the future is spot on. And to think that his book is published only a few days after Facebook launched the fMC (Facebook Marketing Conference)!
I could not put down the book because I was really absorbed into it. His book is helping me guide AppAddictive, the company where I am founder and President. We are developing the products that will shape the future of advertising : Social Advertising. Earned media has been around since the beginning of time --- "word of mouth". But Facebook and social media is making "word of mouth" measurable now in the digital age. The other book that I recommend is "Grouped" by Paul Adams. These 2 books are essential reads for any big advertising agency.
