Early Praise for the Book

Here’s What the Experts Have to Say:

“Pulizzi and Barrett have taken Integrated Marketing Communications to the next level with Get Content. Get Customers. The book includes how to combine old and new marketing, online and offline, print and electronic in innovative and useful ways.

The Web allows smart marketers a better way: create compelling content that people actually want to consume. Pulizzi and Barrett show you how to create and deliver content and they provide dozens of examples of success to learn from.”

Deftly navigating the worlds of PR, advertising and marketing — Joe and Newt prove that the real secret to great marketing is not a brilliant tagline, but creating compelling and useful content.”

“Joe Pulizzi and Newt Barrett take one of the core concepts of new marketing — that providing consumers with valuable content trumps bombarding them with irrelevant advertising — and give brands a treasure trove of tips, tricks, best practices and actionable approaches for using original online and offline content as a weapon in the battle for bottom line results. Get Content. Get Customers. provides a play-by-play for any marketer who is serious about breaking away from the pack, upsetting the status quo and moving beyond interruption marketing by offering compelling content that delivers real value for consumers and real revenue for their companies.”

“When it comes to online marketing, you’ve got to reach people with what is desired and valued (content) instead of what is despised and ignored (advertising). Online, great content is effective advertising, and smart marketers are the new media. The trick to content marketing is getting your message across while keeping people engaged, and you’re about to discover exactly how to do that with this book.”

Brian Clark, copyblogger.com

If intrusion is dead and consumers are in control, Get Content. Get Customers. brilliantly manages the feat of combining the theory of engaging customers through content marketing along with alarmingly simple and practical approaches to doing it. All of this is clearly and intelligently illustrated through many different case studies. For marketers who understand that narrative marketing is the only marketing left but are struggling to understand how to do it, Get Content. Get Customers. finally offers the solution.”

    Congrats Joe. Looks like you are really gaining traction.

  2. Bernie Borges Says:

    Joe and Newt have written a classic in contemporary marketing. Their book supports the principle that “content is your marketing.” The book is both a how-to guide for marketing executives and a tool for marketing execs to sell their bosses who need convincing that content marketing is the new definition of marketing. This is a must-read book for all contemporary marketers (which is all marketers).
