Overview

What Sticks is the one book that explains exactly how marketing and advertising works today! Based on new insights from analysis of over $1 billion worth of advertising.

Decades ago it was okay to believe, as retail magnate John Wanamaker did, that “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is, I don’t know which half.” However, today the stakes are much higher. Marketing thought leaders Rex Briggs and Greg Stuart estimate that $112 billion in advertising spending in the U.S. alone is wasted, cutting deeply into company profits.

What Sticks uncovers bold new insights from the largest-ever global marketing research project among 30 Fortune 200 companies, including: Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Kraft, McDonalds, Unilever, Ford and others. This is a comprehensive and solutions-oriented book that outlines how any marketer, at any level, can guarantee their advertising succeeds.

Marketers cannot ignore the findings or the solutions revealed in What Sticks, such as:

* Why 47% of the advertising campaigns studied didn’t work and what you can do to guarantee yours does

* How to spend the same advertising budget, but get better results

* How to get your CFO and CEO to eagerly increase your marketing & advertising budget

* How to forecast next year’s advertising budget (Hint: It’s not by using last year’s spending!)

* How to immediately fix your advertising by applying these principles and real nuggets of wisdom

This books reads like an infomercial for the authors' services. They purpport to know and share these 'secrets' about how to select media for advertising. If they do, they certainly don't tell the reader.
