Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Smart marketers around the globe are using the concepts from this book to create customer-focused, innovative organizations. Bottom-line-driven multi-nationals are moving mega-bucks from traditional media to content marketing initiatives because it drives both sales and profitability.

Moreover, many practitioners have been able to eliminate traditional marketing strategies altogether. In fact, as the authors illustrate with in-depth case studies, even very traditional companies have successfully deployed content marketing strategies in print, online, and in person.

As the book proves, the transformation from traditional to content marketing often requires both a new mindset and a new skill set. Although that's easier to say than to do, we are convinced that you and your team must make that transformation.

You may be concerned about the risks of making dramatic changes in your approach to marketing within your organization. We urge you to concentrate instead on the risks inherent in failing to make the changes necessary to compete for the new breed of buyer. We all know that many otherwise-smart companies remain mired in prehistoric marketing methodologies. If you're hesitating, think once again about the fate of the dinosaurs.

We don't know what caused the dinosaurs' demise eons ago. But, when it comes to the demise of marketing dinosaurs in the twenty-first century, we know for sure what will kill them off: the failure to develop and deploy successful content marketing strategies in the face of a game-changing metamorphosis in the business environment.

Don't be a marketing dinosaur. Start implementing your content marketing strategy today, and, as they say over at Nike, "Just do it."

From the Author

Before you read this book, you may well be a skeptic about the content marketing revolution. Frankly, five years ago we were pretty much traditional marketers ourselves. Today, we are unapologetic content marketing evangelists.

That's why we have written Get Content. Get Customers. We are compelled to share the lessons that we have learned as media executives, as observers of content marketing best practices, and, ultimately, as content marketing practitioners ourselves. Of course,this book is part of our own content marketing strategy.

Although most organizations still rely primarily, if not exclusively, on traditional marketing tactics, a rapidly growing number of companies of all sizes are proving that content marketing is the one strategy that will pay dividends for their customers and for themselves.

In fact, the accelerating shift to content marketing is occurring not because it's fashionable, but because it's effective.

This book was published in 2008 and at that time, I'm sure it was cutting edge information. However, 8 years later it's a different story. For example, on p. 60, regarding social media, it says: "[e]ven though social media marketing is increasing its influence daily, most marketers are still just dabbling in it." In 2008, YouTube was only 3 years old [it was started on 2/14/2005]. Today, social media is an essential part of marketing online.

It isn't a matter that the information isn't good - it is - it's just that you must understand that a lot has changed and developed since these authors sat down and wrote this book. As the Foreward states: "Marketing is moving online at a breakneck pace." Nevertheless, there are interesting examples of success stories and it's fun to go online and see what those businesses are doing now.

If you're interested in reading what is now considered general principles, common knowledge that's well written, a look back at where we were just 8 years ago, this is the book for you! I'm enjoying it for exactly that reason, not for any "aha!" moments. If we were back in 2008, I'd give this 5 stars.

We had the opportunity to watch firsthand how content marketing benefitted our organization, The Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce. The book's co-author, Newt Barrett, worked with us to make significant improvements in our print and online publications. The book does a great job of telling our story and that of many organizations who are putting content marketing to work successfully.

We now have a monthly magazine, Business Currents that generates great readership and great revenue--3X as much as our old Chamber publication. Our website is getting 6X as many visitors as it did before its transformation into a content-rich online home for The Chamber.

Just as the book describes, everything came down to understanding what issues are most important to our target audience--the regional business community--and delivering relevant and valuable content consistently, month in and month out. Content marketing has benefitted our members, our community, and our organization. Content marketing really works. Our organization is living proof.

I've read both his books on content and content strategy, and I'm in the field. His books are wonderfully simple and reliable. They offer excellent insights and will definitely broaden your base of knowledge. Although he is a pioneer in the field with his own growing company, the author doesn't use his books to sell his company, seminars or any products, which is both fair and refreshing. I've begin to follow some of those he mentions on Twitter, and they also provide valuable insight into this vast, changing world of social media and content.

You can become the change agent in your business. The key secret they reveal in this book revolves around the fact that people will no longer be seeking out your content. You have to find ways to get to them.

The Table of Contents is divided into four sections:

Most contemporary business books should be in the humor genre as far as small business owners are concerned. Not Get Content Get Customers, this slim book deserves your roughest treatment. Mark it up, dog ear it, spill coffee on it, and tear through it. If there was one book you could keep out of your competitors' hands, this would be the one.
With traditional media becoming less effective, and almost all our new clients telling us they looked at our Website (HopeHealth.com) before calling us -- it was time to re-think our marketing from top to bottom. Get Content Get Customers is a step-by-step "get er done" guide to making your business visible to anyone who may be interested enough to search for your ilk.
Once the rules of the road are established, the case studies are invaluable. No theories here. It's all real world, tested advice. It's clear Pulizzi and Barrett, the authors, believe in Content Marketing because the subject matter is delivered with passion, and makes for an interesting and "relevant" read.
This advice is easy-to-follow, and easy to implement. Garden variety websites, enhanced with free downloadable software are all you need. Then only your creativity is the limit to how effective your content marketing will be. Highly recommended!
