Marketing directors, brand managers, ad execs and public relations directors are in for a real treat. I was. I finally found a marketing genius with whom I could agree. There were literally points over the last 4 years where I thought, I was crazy. My advertising colleagues said I was crazy, as I unraveled the mystery of what David Meerman Scott calls “The New Rules of Marketing and PR 2.0″. He discovered the same patterns, the same inconsistencies, the same holes in traditional marketing. After 33-years in advertising things weren’t adding up anymore. Buyers weren’t connecting with the messages. I was saying that the sales cycle had broken. I wish we would have known about David’s book in 2006 when he first published it. Four years ago when we started decoding the changes and their meanings we would have had more to go on. It’s only been a week since I found David’s book in audio form from Audible. He had been far ahead of me but we both came to many of the same conclusions. In listening to his book I was connected with a universe of jaw-dropping marketing proof. I learned of the successes others had already seen. They matched what my team had been experiencing for the last 4-years. It was all true. It wasn’t fluke when our client saw a 33% increase in sales. It might not have been a coincidence that our clients were the targets of acquisitions. You have to get this audio book. “The New Rules of Marketing and PR 2.0″ by David Meerman Scott. My company and I only thought we were pioneering a “new marketing”. Wrong. Mr. Scott had it years ahead of us. I can’t recommend enough that you get this audio book from audible. Buy it. It will change your business, change the practice of your profession and give you a real shot at marketing relevance in our forever changed interactions with buyers. Worth every penny.
