By: Jessica Miller
August 5th, 2014

“Marketing is now, as it has always been, an art form. But the next generation of marketers understands it can be so much more. These innovators are rewriting what is possible when the art and science of marketing collide.” —Paul Roetzer (@paulroetzer), from The Marketing Performance Blueprint  The marketing industry continues to transform at an unprecedented rate. The result?  Growing gaps in marketing talent, technology and strategy. As Dan Lyons (@realdanlyons) reported from Adobe’s 2014 summit for digital marketers: “Adobe claims that 60% of marketers expect their role to change in the next year, and 40% believe they need to reinvent themselves, but only 14% actually know how to do it.” The future of your business—and your marketing career—depends on your ability to continually adapt. The Marketing Performance Blueprint presents the processes, technologies, and strategies needed to fill marketing gaps and build performance-driven organizations. Step by step, the book shows how to tap into a scientific approach to marketing that can help steer organizations to advance their businesses, exceed ROI expectations, and outperform the competition. “If you think that marketing is about out-spending and shouting louder than your competition, then The Marketing Performance Blueprint is for you. Roetzer does a phenomenal job of demonstrating the power of just how much marketing, strategy and technology has changed to make brands so much more efficient. If you’re still worrying about likes, friends and followers and not working on the true performance of your marketing spend, you really need to read this book and deploy the thinking of it in your organization. Now.” — Mitch Joel (@mitchjoel), President, Twist Image, and Author, Six Pixels of Separation and CTRL ALT Delete                 The Marketing Performance Blueprint, At A Glance.  At its core, The Marketing Performance Blueprint is a story about the convergence of marketing talent, technology and strategy.
