Format: Paperback
I have adopted the new edition of Social Marketing for my Community Health course, HLED 410: Health Communication & Social Marketing, at Western Washington University. This week, I read carefully through the book to update my syllabus, and I want to share how wonderful I think the text is. Beginning each chapter with the marketing highlight examples and continuing to refer to them throughout the chapter is very helpful, especially for students who either may not connect the dots so easily or who may not have the mental energy to do so. I was also very excited to see such current examples of campaigns. Being from the state of Washington, my students will recognize many of them. Bravo!

This book by Kotler and Lee is absolutely wonderful! I love Ms. Lee and Dr. Kotler makes the practice of Social Marketing come alive. Each chapter provides real-life examples in various settings. The Work Sheet gives a step-by-step template for any Social Marketing campaign or program. I recommend this to all readers working in public, government or non-profits. I am a Medical Reserve Corps Program Coordinator and Volunteer Administrator and this text book is an excellent resource! I have recommended it as a "must read" to my colleagues.

Nancy Lee is not only an informative writer, but a superb teacher and consultant! She taught the one-week class based on this book, and it should be required reading/curriculum for every Public Health worker, educator and anyone who is trying to influence behavior. I learned so much! Nancy is a storehouse of information. Whatever her consulting fees -- she is well worth your time and payment!

This book was required for my Master's in Nonprofit Management program, and I am GLAD it was! My background is in marketing, but not like this - truly an eye-opener into understanding your audience and how to influence decision making. The book is quite detailed, going through all the steps of the social marketing plan. Now, this is true social marketing, not social media, which I have seen gets confused.

Once you read this book, you will feel much more prepared and excited in achieving your objectives - exposure, money, advocacy, etc. This will change your thinking about marketing!!!

Format: Paperback
Redefines the management paradigm for research in social change with mixed marketing strategies. Opens up the other windows of fundamental principles, that add light on how and why many message campaigns miss the opportunity to reduce unhealthy life styles.
