Digital and social media are essential aspects of a marketing department's function; therefore, it is important that they are integrated into the organization's wider goals. Uniting digital marketing techniques with business strategy and established marketing models such as the 7 P's, Porter's Five Forces, and Customer Lifetime Value, author Simon Kingsnorth demonstrates how to formulate the best strategy for a company.
Rather than presenting a "one size fits all" model, Kingsnorth brings various strategies to life through case studies, charts, illustrations, and checklists. Digital Marketing Strategy covers what digital marketing is, how to budget and forecast, acquisition, personalization, customer service, user experience, content strategy, how to analyze and perform social measurements, and how to structure and present a digital marketing plan in order to win support and funding.

Is this a textbook or a route map to establishing or streamlining your digital marketing strategy? The positioning is unclear, yet it provides in any case a great host of information about digital marketing subjects that can be used by the practitioner or student as a base for their own needs.
The author has consolidated a lot of relevant, practical information together in this book, acting as a bit of a ready-reference source instead of a more outwardly looking inspirational guide to doing digital marketing. This is not a criticism per se, but a reflection of how the book appears and feels. Certainly it is doing a good job and has the potential to be a closely consulted companion for many readers.
It seems that the objective is not to be a “one size fits all” book, so by providing a host of strategies, theory, practical case studies and guidance the author aims to be a central resource and the reader has to pick the tools that may be best suited to their requirements and then implement them at will. This makes sense in many ways. This book can also be a more unique, personal book to each reader, since they get different benefits from their book along the way.
In any case, this can be a certain “no brainer” purchase; it is competitively priced and has a lot of relevant, up-to-date information that acts as a great springboard to additional knowledge for the reader. It is more than just digital marketing too, so if you’ve forgotten some of your marketing and business theory you can brush up on this at the same time without being embarrassed!
Leave some space on your bookshelf for this book!
