5Highly recommendable for anyone who needs to communicate with the market.
By Hans Peter Bech
The web and especially the social media platforms have made the playing field for marketing communication much more even. It is no longer only the budget that is the deciding factor for how much reach you can create with your content. However, it takes a certain level of insight to really take advantage of the new playing fields and this insight is what David Meermans Scott is giving us through his 5th edition of his ground breaking book "The New Rules of Marketing and PR". The book gives the reader a good overview over the principles behind effective communication on the web and an easy-to-read walk through all the various channels available.

5How to get true ROI from your marketing efforts
By Bill Gluth
I have ALL the other editions so when the newest came out, I was first in line to get a copy. Not the same old blah blah when it comes to marketing today. Packed with examples, direction and methods to increase the bottom line and get that ROI from marketing you're dreaming of today. This is the marketing instruction manual you're looking for.

3Meerman gives very cohesive notes about outlining a social media ...
Meerman gives very cohesive notes about outlining a social media plan, and some novel insights into marketing based on personal interaction, but unfortunately a lot of his book is DATED, though he claims it's been updated, e.g. he references Twitter methods that have been unavailable for a while and talks about using QR codes in ways that have been well documented for some time.
