• My copy of  The New Rules of Marketing and PR is flagged with sticky notes. There are at least a dozen techniques I plan to implement in my own marketing. In fact, this book seriously opens the eyes of businesses relying solely on traditional marketing methods.

    Coming from a traditional ad agency background, over the past several years, I’ve had a learning curve when it comes to, what has been called, unconventional marketing methods. I’ve embraced the trends and know how important it is to continually stay up to date on the ever-evolving, online marketing methods available. I’m also quite certain many ad agencies who haven’t embraced online marketing, won’t want you to read this book. This is simply because the return on investment for online marketing, when executed properly can far outweigh the ROI of traditional media for a much smaller budget.

    David Meerman Scott skillfully illustrates this, beginning with demonstrating how the Web has changed marketing and public relations rules. According to him, before the Web, businesses had two main choices to attract clients.

    1) Purchasing expensive adverting

    2) Getting third-party exposure from the media

    The Web changed this and savvy marketers know this medium is one of the most effective ways to develop direct relationships with consumers. Consumers who get to know and trust you and eventually choose to do business with you.
