Dan Zarrella has written this fantastic volume to help online marketers and bloggers to better understand the tools at our disposal. You could be getting more views or purchases on your site, just by implementing some of the tips that Zarralla exposes. The book is split into 10 chapters, each devoted to a particular platform of online marketing: E-Books, Webinars, SEO, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Blogging, E-Mail Marketing, Lead Generation, & Analytics. Throughout each chapter, you're given examples of all types of online visitors, and you'll discover exact techniques that you could be implementing now, today, in your social marketing. Zarrella has performed hundreds of surveys (it seems) to prepare the conclusions he is sharing in "The Science of Marketing". By revealing these critical results, he has changed the way I think about marketing, and the way you'll think about it too! Sometimes, the survey results revealed something lacking in the way that bloggers and marketers are timing their posts, or sometimes in the way you write. You'll find out an amazing amount of information in this book -- be sure to take notes! I would definitely recommend this book to bloggers, website owners, or anyone else in need of promoting their online social presence (whether a newbie or professional). It is an amazing resource, and I'll probably have to read it again one day to glean more facts from it!
