    "Here's How to Get Your Content to Market"
    If you could sum up The Content Code in three words, what would they be?

    Thoughtful and timely.


    What other book might you compare The Content Code to and why?

    Content, Inc.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book because I wanted find better ways of getting my content and brand to people who are more likely to read my content and hire me for services. This book is packed with ideas, strategies, and suggestions for doing just that. I am now on my second read to more thoroughly dissect and incorporate the author’s thoughts and suggestions into practices. Read this book if you are ready to go to the next level in reaching your target market.

    "Didn't want to skip any sections...."
    What did you love best about The Content Code?

    Solid useful content throughout the whole work. Usually I skip sections, but in this case I was afraid I would miss something useful. You'd think this guy was a content marketer or something!!


    What other book might you compare The Content Code to and why?

    I like non-fiction, real-world, how-to books (and apparently hyphenated words) that give you real road-maps and resources to help you succeed. Reminded me of Tom Peters' Thriving on Chaos with all of the real world stories of case studies and results but focused on Content Marketing.


    Any additional comments?

    I recently attended a webinar with Mark as the main presenter. Seems like a genuinely good guy with great experience and knowledge to share. Very helpful to a small biz guy like me looking for mentors and knowledge. He puts it all out there on the blog and in social media, but I still recommend spending a few bucks to buy the work to use as a resource/reference.

    "Insightful and interesting"

    This book is fantastic for anyone involved in creating content. As a content marketer it was full of excellent insights that have helped me to deliver even better content.
    I rated it so highly that I've even bought the hard copy !! I wanted to look back through certain chapters and re-read, because there's so much information in this book the first reading is just the beginning!

    "Pretty Good"

    A good summary of concepts and ideas in this discipline. The "Alpha Audience" emphasis in the book has driven me to focus on it more going forward.

    "May be relevant, but very difficult to listen to"

    While I have found many good bits of information in this audiobook it has been extremely difficult to get through. I believe it is the author who is reading himself and how and where he chooses to pause and put emphasis doesn't seem to flow very well with the content.
    This is my seventh audiobook but the first that failed to keep my attention while listening. Schaefer does provide some very useful tidbits, but I can't help but wonder if I should have bought the hard copy of the book rather than the audible.
    Many chapters are filled with list upon list of tips advice, and ideas, however often times by the third point I've completely lost sight of the list topic and he generally makes no effort to remind the listener of the relevance.

    "Great reading by Mark Schaefer"
    Where does The Content Code rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is an excellent audiobook. I always prefer when the author reads non-fiction. There is practical and actionable information.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There was only the narrator who also was the author.


    Have you listened to any of Mark W. Schaefer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first one I have listened to.

    "Brilliant Behaviors for Outrageous Revenue Ignition"

    The Content Code is pure brilliance. It is the greatest single source you can find for a 360 degree, top-to-bottom, inside-and-out, and every way in-between tactical approach to growing your business. Mark W. Schaefer's combination of humility, humor, and real-world practicality make this book an eye-opener for digital marketing new comers and grizzled veterans alike.

    Jay Baer's Youtility is an exceptional work to help clients understand the fundamental philosophy that drives phenomenal content generation. The Content Code takes things a step further to offer practical steps that ensure your content "ignites" to build an "Alpha Audience" of fans, brand ambassadors, and - ultimately - paying customers.

    Taken in its entirety, Schafer's masterful formula can make any marketer, entrepreneur, or executive a master craftsman of online influence and revenue ignition.

    "Learned Some Gems"

    Really enjoyed the sincere and genuine delivery of the author. I generally only like to buy audio books where the writer is narrating. It adds credibility and punch.

    Whilst Mark Schaefer covered many content marketing pearls of wisdom I've learned before, there were some fresh and insightful twists.

    Externally useful and relevant book. This will be one I re-listen to.

    You can't get better than that.

    Thankyou Mr Schaefer.

    "good 'inspiration' book but..."

    this is a excellent book for getting you excited about content marketing. my only comment (just in case the author reads these) is I'd have liked a few more detailed actions to take away with me. very knowledgeable individual however and well worth a listen.
