Online Marketing Heroes

Interviews with 25 Successful Online Marketing Gurus

Marketing’s goal is the same as ever: Get your product before more of the right people, generate enthusiasm to encourage buying, and build brand loyalty to keep your customers coming back. What has changed, and radically, is the delivery system. Today, it’s about optimizing your website for search engine placement, marketing via blogs and social networking sites, and creating an online press release that generates results.

Where better to learn such skills than from those who have already been successful?

Suppose you could sit down with 25 of the most successful online marketing gurus in the business and just talk shop. Suppose that include PR people, copywriters, direct marketing gurus, and consultants. Suppose you could get input from the creative cubicle-dwellers as well as executives managing multimillion-dollar marketing firms. You could learn proven skills and techniques that would revolutionize your marketing efforts.

That discussion is packaged in these pages. Whether you’re a veteran marketing professional or a novice entering the field, you can’t afford to miss this wisdom.

The experts who sat down to talk shop with author Michael Miller have not only been there and done that, they’ve done it masterfully. You’ll learn about search engine marketing from Ron Belanger, head of Yahoo! Search Marketing. Get the inside scoop on blog marketing from Southwest Airlines’ blogmeister Brian Lusk. Research online retailing with Travelocity’s Jeffrey Glueck. And more.
