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.
Content marketing does not have to be done online, and some online businesses are practicing content marketing but not inbound marketing. I think the distinctions are important to understand. If you are practicing inbound marketing, you are by default practicing content marketing, but not the other way around.
The book also has excellent examples at the end where the authors explain how the featured businesses are using content marketing. I went through the examples and found them very helpful.
You'll get powerful lessons from the `Best Practice Success Stories' and ways to implement them from the final section on `Putting the Lessons Into Action.'
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:
Section One: Coping With the Content Marketing Revolution
Section Two: How to Put Content Marketing to Work
Section Three: Learning from Smart Marketers--Best Practice Success Stories
Section Four: Putting the Lessons Into Action
Each section builds on the previous one. You'll learn a way to develop a set of processes that will help you put theories into real action that gets results. Both Joe and Newt walk the talk. Their blogs demonstrate the value you derive from providing readers with content they can't find anywhere else. I highly recommend this book.
I am amazed that in a field changing as quickly as modern marketing that the authors have been able to get much information into the book that is this timely. I found easy to follow-constructs, timely examples and dozens of items which will lead me to do additional research and continue learning.
