Brief Review:

Good quality advice. Easy to understand and comprehensive.

Recommendation:

Buy it.

Longer Review:

If you're looking for a good overview of digital marketing then there are few better books to start with than this one by Damian Ryan and Calvin Jones.

They waste no time in giving you loads of useful information on a wide range of topics. They start (very briefly) with how the Internet came about and then move on to the following topics:

- Strategy
- Digital Overview
- Search Marketing
- Web Analytics
- Email Marketing
- Social Media
- Online PR
- Affiliate Marketing
- Mobile Marketing

They then finish the book by looking forward in time and trying to work out, 'what's next' (if we only knew).

The book is surprisingly good. The text is engaging and simple to read. This is not a 'techie book'. Each chapter starts with a 'Chapter Pledge' and then breaks down each topic into easy to digest chunks.

There are also plenty of case studies that are used to illustrate key points in the book and demonstrate how a certain marketing tactic was applied.

Minor Criticisms

The book is an introductory text. It is, therefore, fairly basic in its treatment of the overall subjet matter (digital marketing). So, if you've got any experience in this field, you might find it a little too simplistic. However, even if you are experienced, you may pick up some intro knowledge to areas that you're unfamiliar with e.g. if you're an SEO person, you may learn something about Email Marketing for example.

The other problem, of course, with digital, is that it all moves so fast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 22 April 2012
By TJ
Format:Paperback
This is the best book I've seen on Digital Marketing. Without doubt it has been a worthwhile investment for me in my career as a marketing executive for my organisation. So much less hassle than having to sit through hours of boring classroom lectures - several days going backwards and forwards on the bus to work with this trusty tool in my hand has made me informed and up to speed with the whole world of digital marketing. Nice one boys!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Too basic and already out of date 6 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The introduction has put me off. I have been working with Digital Media since 1994 and the introduction just sounded like the rewriting of snake oil books in Digital Media. I flicked through the book and could tell that there was no original thought analysing the difficulties and opportunities faced by Digital Marketeers of today and tomorrow. It does not tell for example, where Digital Marketing is failing and on how a Digital Campaign can become a blackhole.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CLEAR, CONCISE AND UNDERSTANDABLE ANALYSIS 18 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Digital Marketing is adding exciting new dimensions to the now well known and much used principles and practices of marketing. From a static "art" form it has now become participative exercise wher provider and customer interact.... It opens up a wide range of possibilities once one understands the underlying structures and concepts of its online applications and implications. And this is what this clear, concise and understandable analysis provides and "online" neophyte like myself even though I have worked in marketing for many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Students! 10 Jan 2013
By Steph F
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to help with my dissertation topic and as a student it has really helped me to understand digital marketing as it is up to date and covers all areas. My lecturer refers to it in her lectures as it is easy to read and understand with examples and case studies throughout. In my opinion, chapter 5 'Website Intelligence and Return on Investment' and the final chapter 'Whats Next?' were particularly helpful due to the easy to understand format of explaining ROI and great insights into the future of digital marketing gave me ideas for future research. Overall, I would highly recommend this book to students and lecturers for an overview of digital marketing.
