Recommendation

As the subtitle of this book states, “everything in marketing has changed.” Marketers should no longer concern themselves with the previously undisputed principles of unique selling propositions (USPs), client benefits, positioning, local competition and even superior service. Social networks have redistributed power into the hands of the consumer. Now, to make your brand attractive, you must take the focus off the transaction and provide value, create an experience and join in the online conversation. Grant Leboff thoughtfully outlines the new, “sticky” method of marketing, explaining why “customer engagement” reigns supreme. He lays out the ABCs of “sticky marketing,” including helpful summaries at the conclusions of each chapter. getAbstract recommends that all marketers give this a thorough read and refer to it often.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How the Internet and social networks have turned marketing upside down,
  • How the principles of “sticky marketing” work, and
  • Why “value creation” and “customer engagement” are crucial to your marketing efforts.

Summary

Business as Usual? No Such Thing!

Since the introduction of the Internet, the ways that a company interacts with customers, conducts business, and markets products and services have completely changed. Not since the invention of the printing press has an industrial advance so revolutionized communication. The printing press allowed one person to communicate with many. Subsequent technological advances, such as radio and television, elevated this capacity. The Web provides “many-to-many” communication. Companies that first recognized this new outreach quickly surpassed those that didn't, no matter how big or established their brands. For example, Yellow Pages was the search destination of choice for nearly a century; Google now dominates online searches.
