Spin Sucks by Gini Dietrich shows businesses how to effectively execute marketing and communications strategies in today’s digital-savvy world. It covers a broad range of topics, including the latest change to Google algorithms and their effects, how to keep an issue from becoming a crisis, making social media work for you, writing great content for the web and protecting it, search engine optimization, and so much more. The author makes the information easy to digest, with real-life and fictional examples. But she doesn’t just break everything down for you, she takes it a step further and tells you how to implement it and which tools are best based on her personal experience with her own marketing and communications firm, Arment Dietrich. Whether you are the CEO or the administrative assistant or somewhere in between, if you’re part of any business, you will gain valuable insight from this book. I know I did.
