Editorial Reviews

Review

“Andreasen’s book finally bridges upstream and downstream approaches to social change and takes a “both-and” approach rather than either-or...The variety of examples throughout the book makes the text come alive…  It is a richly referenced book that is clear and presents some complex concepts in an easy to understand way… I would absolutely consider adopting this text!” (Mike Newton-Ward 2005-11-01)

“Andreasen makes an inspiring case for taking the traditional social marketing model to new markets in order to influence more rapid and sustainable social change, as well as to ensure a longer life cycle for the social marketing brand…  I am certain I will use it as material for a course and for seminars.” (Nancy Lee, MBA 2005-11-01)

"This succinct volume provides a well-written explanation of social marketing and its application to social problems, the role of agenda setting and framing in interpreting social data, and three simple models for influencing behavior change. Academicians in disciplines related to behavioral therapy, communication, health care, marketing, and social change as well as practitioners in social marketing, public relations and counseling will find this book interesting reading and a valuable, heuristic resource." (J. L. Allen 2006-11-27)

Format: Paperback
I think you'll find its descriptions of "upstream" social marketing and the concepts and tools from Dr. Alan Andreasen helpful for becoming more aware of how comprehensively social marketing really ought to be done.

We're usually using "downstream" social marketing to influence behavior (staying with a behavior like not smoking or changing to a more health enhancing behavior) in individuals. "Upstream" targets audiences or audience segments of people (often in organizations like media, script writers, hospital, private sector/commercial business people, even legislators) to influence their behavior to do things to help us change the environment, policies or provide other services or information for the downstream individuals. In both cases Andreasen says great social marketers have a "slavish attention to target audiences" to learn about their interests, needs, thinking, attitudes, knowledge before creating any programs or interventions.

Andreasen uses theories those in health promotion use but some are named differently or, possibly, business terminology. The process is to use stages of change for your target audience, BCOS (benefits, costs: like decisional balance; O for others who influence us; S for self-assurance maybe like Theory of Planned Behavior or Theory of Reasoned Action) plus Competition. The book has many very good examples of good approaches to conducting social marketing.

The book was purchased and used as material for a short, summer course offered at Georgetown University with Dr. Andreasen. The text is reader friendly and presents supportive examples. I am very pleased with this purchase (as a novice in the field of social marketing) and recommend it to anyone (e.g., student, professional) interested in the field.
