Valuable Content Marketing goes beyond words and lofty vision. It tells you what to do. In a landscape growing increasingly crowded by noise, this gets you to a higher ground.
Chris Brogan, CEO of Owner Media Group

I have encountered no better book on this subject. It's comprehensive, practical, inspirational and accessible. I highly recommend it to anyone with any interest at all in this subject, but especially to those who are actively practising content marketing, and for those who are thinking about putting content marketing into their organisation.
Tim Tucker, Content Marketing Consultant and Trainer

What I love about this book is that it doesn't try to dress up content marketing as if it were akin to landing a probe on a comet and sending back data. Instead, it's a clear, honest and practical book that shows how powerful - and how simple - content marketing can be. It also puts content marketing in its proper context: as a means to revenue....If you care about marketing and want to do it properly, you're in the right place and in the best hands.
Doug Kessler, Creative Director, Co-Founder, Velocity Partners Ltd.

Valuable Content Marketing is a breath of fresh air in a world full of self-proclaimed gurus and experts. No snakeoil here, just clear explanations of the how and the what and the why of engaging with prospects and clients. It is the first common sense, practical book that helps people apply digital to their businesses in an honest and straightforward manner.
Robert Craven, MD and founder of the Director's Centre and author of Grow Your Digital Agency

This book presents both the big picture and the nitty-gritty of content marketing for small businesses.... If you're unsure where to start with marketing your business online or your current content doesn't generate enough interest in your business, then start with this book. You won't be disappointed.
Henneke Duistermaat, founder of Enchanting Marketing

It's structured logically and clearly, and as you'd hope from a book with such a title, it contains both practical ideas and instructions in creating content that adds value. Definitely a book you'll pick up more than once!
Jaya Chakrabati MBE, CEO of Nameless Media Group
