Editorial Reviews

Review

he [Kotler] sees that a new era of marketing is evolving. Customers have grown more knowledgeable. (B2B Marketing Magazine, October 2010).

From the Inside Flap

Today's customers are choosing products and companies that satisfy deeper needs for creativity, community, and idealism. Leading companies realize they must reach these highly aware, technology-enabled customers, and that the old rules of marketing won't help them do this. Instead, they must create products, services, and corporate cultures that inspire, include, and reflect their customers' values.

Legandary marketing sage Philip Kotler and his colleagues Hermawan Kartajaya and Iwan Setiawan have identified this definitive break with earlier models as Marketing 3.0. Moving beyond product-based (Marketing 1.0) and consumer-based (Marketing 2.0) approaches. Marketing 3.0 takes a holistic approach to customers as multidimensional, values-driven people, even as potential collaborators.

Marketing 3.0 clearly lays out the authors' key ideas and gives you real-world examples so you can implement Marketing 3.0 practices at your organization. Customers have realized that their purchasing power has a global impact, and they are acting accordingly and talking to each other about the choices they make. Marketing 3.0 explains how you can engage this conversation, position your brand as a positive force in the world, and collaborate successfuly with customer-advocates.

Marketing 3.0 also goes beyong "messaging" customers to encompass how a company defines and embodies its values for a variety of stakeholders. It explores how brands have an impact on issues such as poverty. socio-cultural change, and environmental sustainability. It also looks at how values-driven marketing affects employees, channel partners, and shareholders.

Customers are more aware, more active, and more powerful than ever before. Marketing 3.0 shows you how to demonstrate you relevance to this interconnected, global community, giving you an unmatched guide to winning in this new age of marketing.

This is not a workbook as the other reviews already pointed out but it's very inspiring. I'm a fan of Philip Kotler for many years and I think he has become wiser and wanted to share his 40-year experience to change the way marketing is perceived.

He explains the progression of marketing in a very simple way. My favorite part is his interpretation of marketing evolution for the past 60 years (check out chapter 2). No one could come up with something that comprehensive other than Mr. Marketing himself.

Before reading this book, I didn't know that Philip Kotler is a trend watcher. He observed the latest trends and turned them into valuable insights. A must have!

Marketing 3.0 is by Philip Kotler et al,although it feels nothing like his great classic works and I'm wondering if it was written by 'et al' rather than the master himself.

The core of the book is that marketing 1.0 is considered to be the era of product centric marketing, 2.0 - consumer centric marketing and marketing 3.0 the era of values driven marketing. Philip Kotler needs no introduction, so I was a little surprised to find that these eras are presented as if they are discrete eras somewhat like the jurassic era and so on. Would Apple argue that marketing 1.0 dead i.e. features - benefits 'means to and end' marketing? I think not. And what about marketing 2.0? i.e. customer centricity / obsession? Is that now out of date.

Kotler has produced some fantastic books, but I'm disappointed to say that this is not one of them.

Marketing 3.0 highlights the key turning point of how marketing will be engaged in the coming future. The power of marketing and business has always rested in the hands of the consumers and now this more apparent. The current generation is glued to technology and social media. They are connected to the world with just their finger tips and it is giving them a buying power that has not be seen for quite some time. Philip Kotler explains in Marketing 3.0 the importance of shifting from a product (1.0) and consumer (2.0) driven markets. The market is being driven by the value of the individual and the availability of their network in the world. Twenty years ago the traffic of information was slow and people were dependent on the companies and brands for their knowledge of products. With knowledge just a button away, the consumer is becoming smarter and demand more from the product they desire to purchase.

Kotler describes this trend in detail and explains the importance of distributing this strategy among the businesses and companies. His theory is that to build a human/value-driven market you have to instill the values and the mission of the company directly to those who see the brand, invest in the brand, and work for it. This dialogue between consumers, employees, and shareholders begins a process of delving into the understanding of imparting the life of the company to all of those who are involved. The very essence of this idea is that people do not buy what a company does, but why they do it. In the Information Age, people desire to know why something is being given rather than its effectiveness in order to ensure quality purchases. It can be seen in today's age with the recession causing the consumer to be shaken by the economic instability.

I like the references to pop culture, so that generated interest, but this is a "textbook" that I wouldn't have picked to read if I was at a bookstore browsing through books. I had to force myself to keep reading to move forward in the book. However, I finally stopped reading because it was torturous. I will try to finish this book to see if anything grabs me, but at this time, I had to put the book down.

This books shows you that whatever you make, make sure that the users love the product, and they will do the marketing for you!

When you make 'bad' products those days, you have a problem, people will find out soon!

Must read for people who are working for a company making not so great products, and they will understand where the issue is.

I loved to read it.

In my opinion, Mssrs. Hardy and Cook completely miss the boat with their reviews of this outstanding book. The new values orientation Kotler and his colleagues discuss is, indeed, a breakthrough. No doubt many marketing professors and marketers are too myopic to see it. Their consumers (both students and customers) will leave them behind in ever increasing numbers as they find alternative sources for both educators and companies that recognize the way the world is changing. Milton Friedman was right for his time, but not for this time. Sustainability, environmental stewardship, and corporate social responsibility are not externalities anymore. They are the woof and warp of brand identity. Like Peter Drucker said, "Doing the right thing is more important than doing things right."

Firstly, I am not a marketing professional. Maybe I am not the right audience of this book. Marketing pros may want to skip this review from a marketing amateur. I really wanted to learn something about marketing from this book and have finished reading this book, but I do not know what I have learned from this book is marketing related but not common sense. I am trying to evaluate this book from the view of an ordinary consumer so see which marketing strategy preached by this book would entice me to buy some products. I thought this is what marketing is about. I also run a software startup which customers are enterprises, and this is what motivated to get this book to learn something about marketing. I cannot think of a single thing from this book that I can use. For this reason, I am supposed to give one star to this book. However, this book is well edited and most important of all, I agree with everything the book says. For example, it preaches socially responsible enterprise, and I am all for it; itt mentions micro financing, and I am an active member of Kiva. It repeatedly talks about sustainability and I am going green as hard as I can. Therefore I still rank this book 3-star instead of 1-star. For me, this book is more about some general trend and the right way to run a business than marketing, so it is appropriate to have the foreword written by the President of the Republic of Indonesia.

Many concepts discussed by this book are either abstract or not highly relevant to marketing. Let me give two examples to make this point. It talks about the shift to human spirit and emotional marketing of Marketing 3.0. As a consumer, I do not want to get emotional in shopping. I am a longtime subscriber to Consumer Reports.
