Book Review: Profitable Marketing Communications

13 10 2007

This is definitely a book I’ll be picking up soon.

Below is an excerpt of a review written by Martina Zavango over at Adverblog

“When the publisher asked me if I wanted to review “Profitable Marketing Communications: A Guide to Marketing Return on Investment” at first I declined the offer, fearing it could have been a book all about numbers and calculations. The publisher of course insisted and explained me the idea I was getting from the title was wrong. So in the end I accepted, and now I’m glad I did it.

Working in brand communications ROI is a word I almost don’t know or better, I try to avoid as much as possible. It’s a silly thing, as I always preach that it’s important to have a 360 marketing approach, but when I see numbers and calculations I just can’t help it, I don’t know if you feel the same… it’s a sort of allergy, an allergy I would have to cure if I want to improve in my job. Ok, but now let’s talk about the book… First of all, I confirm that the idea I got from the title was wrong. I have no problem admitting it, but maybe I have the doubt the publisher didn’t make the right choice in choosing it.”
