Read it twice

This book made me re-evaluate and revise my strategy about our (start-up) company's blog post. The notion is that credibility is not self-proclaimed but earned. Gain credibility by providing resources and guiding the people you are trying to help (aka customers). Overall the ideas resonates much deeper on the 'How to do good in this world?'. There is plenty of 'How to do' and concrete content and strategies outlined in this book. The narration is high-energy. In addition Dan Norris provides on-line resources and templates to get you started. The time spent listening to the book was earned back by getting access to content marketing templates.

Actionable steps to generating content but...

Well worth listening to with a notebook to jot down lots of great actionable advice to creating content for your online business however, the author is reading this book and is good on one level, like updating some of the things he wrote about in 2015, on another level reads it quite fast (you can slow it down in the app) and stumbles over his notes (can't do much about that). I was a bit disappointed that there were no pdf notes or worksheets to go along with the audiobook which could have made up for him saving some cash by not using a professional narrator. Good content though.

I don’t know if this guys content is any good, switched off after the first 2 chapters - it sounds like he’s reading his notes and badly...

Good content, terrible delivery

While the content is superb and a throughly thought insight into delivering content. It’s very badly delivered with mistakes just left in the edit. Many to the detriment of the information, it feels like an ad hoc podcast not a book I’ve paid upfront for

Gives you sight in the abyss of content marketing.

I'm and Engineer with a 5 year old Business, this book won t take you from 0 to hero in content martketing nor dose it claim too. But it clearly explains the subject and equips you with the knowledge to start off in a logical direction with the tools to course correct - for me this is a massive change from where I was wandering in the abyss.

Slow down! What's the rush?

The narration is hurried and rushed to point where the author stumbles over words and leaves too few gaps between sentences. As a result some passages are an aural blur. If you wanted to take notes while listening to this you'd need to learn to write in shorthand first.

This casual style may suit some people but it's not for me.

terrible

Badly narrated monotonous tone. I managed to get two chapters in till I could not take it anymore. Stumbling over words - sounds like a presentation.

A modern and concise summary of marketing today.

This book is great for those who have been interested in online marketing or doing a startup for awhile. Someone who is not completely unfamiliar with digital marketing concepts, but hasn't yet actually implemented the knowledge.

There is too much information out there today. So much so that it is often difficult to determine how to use the information.

This book gives a recap of the everything digital marketing in an actionable and useful way so you don't have to go back to all your notes. It's a great &quot;reminder&quot; of all the startup stuff you've had stored away from the past few years of reading about it.

So Helpful!!!

I loved this book. There are 5 or 6 things that I will be able to apply immediately, and many more general concepts that were so helpful. Highly recommended!
