Authentic Marketing : How to Capture Hearts and Minds Through the Power of Purpose by Engage on a deeper level by disrupting the typical business development script Authentic Marketing offers a forward-thinking approach to achieving an entirely new level of engagement with today's purpose-driven and skeptical audiences. The heart of this process involves finding the soul of your organization. When moral purpose becomes central to your organization, it can deliver benefits to both the bottom line and mankind: a profit meets purpose proposition. This path requires a reinvention of today's dated business model, abolishing the inefficient, siloed approach of developing a business strategy first and then later creating separate strategies for marketing, HR, manufacturing, R&D, etc. The new integrated model fuses a tight integration of business, technology innovation and engagement strategies, all of which are bound together by a company's moral purpose. When moral purpose is central to an organization's core, everything branches out from a place of authenticity. Rather than a siloed CSR effort, you develop employee and customer relationships based on real--not curated--connections with a brand's moral mission. You build true engagement, trust and evangelism. And, along the way, your customers will actually help to co-create your brand. This book shows you how to transform your business by putting moral purpose to work for your stakeholders and the planet. Embrace a new model that integrates business, technology innovation, and engagement strategies with moral purpose as the glue that binds them together Learn the key steps to find your moral purpose Discover how to engage audiences with a transparent, authentic marketing approach that forges powerful connections and builds trust. With a world of options at their fingertips, today's purpose-driven customers want a brand they can identify with and trust. Authentic Marketing shows you how to make your brand more human, more likeable, more genuine and guides you on how to connect with audiences on a moral level. This process will build a new level of engagement that will benefit both your long-term value and the world.

Extraordinary PR, Ordinary Budget : a strategy guide by Low Cost, High Impact! Public relations is a make-or-break factor for all organizations, especially those that are small or mission driven. While it can be tempting to think that PR is a luxury only larger organizations can afford, PR expert Jennifer R. Farmer shows how her CCRR framework--being credible, creative, responsive, and relentless--is the silver bullet for even cash-strapped organizations. Farmer emphasizes that effective public relations is in fact an essential component of organizational development--people need to know about you for your organization to have maximum impact. Her CCRR framework leverages tools everyone has access to, from social media to brand transparency, and requires attentiveness more than money. Farmer shows you that, no matter how modest your budget, you can build a cost-effective communications strategy that will help you break through the noise in an information-overloaded world.

Frenemies: the epic disruption of the ad business (and everything else) by An intimate and profound reckoning with the epic changes assaulting the global advertising and marketing business--the lifeblood of media as we know it--from the author of five national bestsellers. Advertising and marketing touches on every corner of our lives, and is the invisible fuel powering almost all media. Complain about it though we might, and should, without it much of media and business would shrivel. The disruption has been late in coming, but just as it struck the music, newspaper, magazine, and book businesses, today advertising and marketing are under assault. Good-bye, Don Draper. A Mad Men world has turned into a Math Men (and women--though too few) world, as engineers seek to transform an instinctual art into a science. The old lions and their kingdoms reel from fear, however bravely they might roar. [This book] is Ken Auletta's reckoning with an industry under existential assault. He enters the rooms of the ad world's most important players, some of them business partners, some adversaries, many 'frenemies,' a term whose ubiquitous use in this industry reveals the level of anxiety, as former allies become competitors, and accusations of kickbacks and corruption swirl. We meet the old guard, including Sir Martin Sorrell, the legendary head of WPP, the world's largest ad agency holding company; while others play nice with Facebook and Google, he rants, critics say Lear-like, out on the heath. There is Irwin Gotlieb, maestro of GroupM, the most powerful media agency, but like all media agencies, it is staring into the headlights as ad buying is more and more done by machines and algorithms. We see the world from the vantage of its new stars, like Carolyn Everson, Facebook's head of sales. We visit other brash and scrappy creatives who are driving change, as millennials and others who disdain ads as an interruption employ technology to zap them, becoming advertising and marketing's most potent frenemies. We also peer into the future, looking at what is replacing traditional advertising. And throughout WC follow the industry's Dolly Levi, its peerless matchmaker, Michael Kassan, whose MediaLink company connects all these players together as he serves as the industry's foremost power broker. Frenemies is essential reading, not simply because of what it says about this world, but because of the potential consequences: to the survival of media that depends on the money generated by advertising and marketing; to free television that would not be free without ads; to companies that would perish without a way to tell consumers of their products or sales; and to consumers who would be blind to new products.
