Anyone with any kind of digital presence is a publisher. That includes web sites, but also businesses that blog, are present on social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube or Twitter, and even companies that publish and disseminate content digitally, such as white papers, e-books, podcasts, etc. The reason for this shift is clear: it's easier and cheaper than ever to have a digital presence - and to use your digital profile to market to your customers and prospects. Doing so reduces, and in some cases, eliminates, the need for advertising. Why buy media when you ARE the media? But as we all know, with great power comes great responsibility. What kind of content should you publish? In what forms, and on what platforms? How do you ensure that you'll keep having things to say, and how will you say them effectively, in a consistent "voice" unique to your organization? How will you know if your content strategy is working?

Marketers and brands are eager to cash in on the content marketing craze, but as EContent's Theresa Cramer points out, relatively few firms are doing it well. In fact, while a recent study shows that 90% of B2C marketers now have content marketing programs, just 34% rank their efforts to date as effective. In this book, Cramer's savvy guidance--drawn largely from incisive profiles and interviews with successful content marketers--demystifies the discipline and presents tactics and strategies that are working today. Cramer offers definitions and background, highlights minefields and misfires, and describes exciting new roles and opportunities for marketers, publishers, and journalists. Inside Content Marketing is more than a how-to guide--it's engaging, perceptive, and our editors' pick as this year's must-read business title for anyone who is determined to make it in content marketing and thrive in the Age of Brand Journalism.

You can blame technology, smartphones, social media, online shopping and everything else, but nothingchanges this reality: we are in a moment of business purgatory. So, what are you going to do about it? Mitch Joel, one of the world's leading experts in new media, warns that the time has come to CTRL ALT DELETE. To reboot and to start re-building your business model. If you don't, Joel warns, not only will your company begin to slide backwards, but you may find yourself unemployable within five years. That's a very strong warning, but in his new book, CTRL ALT DELETE, Joel explains the convergence of five key movements that have changed business forever. The movements have already taken place, but few businesses have acted on them. He outlines what you need to know to adapt right now. He also points to the seven triggers that will help you take advantage of these game-changing factors to keep you employable as this new world of business unfolds. Along the way, Joel introduces his novel concept of "squiggle" which explains how you can learn to adapt your personal approach to your career, as new technology becomes the norm.
