3.0 out of 5 stars Good overview of internet marketing; Full of common knowledge in the industry. Jan. 8 2014
By Jaewoo Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are already familiar with digital marketing, then you probably won't get much out of this book.

If you are new to digital/internet marketing, then this book does a fine job and I recommend it.

I can't say the writing is particularly engaging. So I downgraded this book from 4 to 3 stars for that reason.

The book covers SEO, social networks, internet marketing jargons and concepts, and some of the latest trends.

In the rapidly changing world of internet marketing, the information in this book has become somewhat outdated. This book, for example, cites that digital "retargetting" comprises around 5% of total internet ads. I am fairly sure that number is much higher now and retargetting has taken a much higher significance in the world of digital marketing.

The book, unfortunately, doesn't cover digital marketing strategy all that much. The depth of digital marketing strategy, in my opinion, was rather shallow.

1)Excellent overview of digital marketing. Lot of new and valuable information for those who are unfamiliar with the industry.
2)Covers many of the business aspects (3C and 4P) of digital marketing. This isn't geared towards the tech-heads.
3)Covers many cutting edge areas such as social networking.

1)No groundbreaking information that industry insiders would be unaware.
2)Digital marketing strategy coverage was particularly shallow and lacking meaningful analysis.
3)No deep insight into the future of digital marketing.
4)Already somewhat outdated. But most of the content is still highly relevant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sound basis for a direct /digital marketing course Jan. 20 2013
By Edward E. Rigdon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There is nice coverage and good up-to-date information about digital marketing today. He book also includes links to more information, It is not a textbook, of course, but it is not full of embarrassing rah-rah and it does not read like some professor-type just did a little reading and churned out 400 pages of regurgitation. U.S. buyers may be turned off by its UK focus and examples, but don't be dismayed. The quality and meatiness of the writing carry the book. You will certainly supplement with something else, depending on your emphasis, but this is a nice sold work that can provide a core for your course.
