If you are currently struggling with getting traffic to your website, or converting that traffic when it shows up, you may think you’ve got a traffic or conversion problem. In Russell Brunson's experience, after working with thousands of businesses, he has found that’s rarely the case. Low traffic and weak conversion numbers are just symptoms of a much greater problem, a problem that’s a little harder to see (that’s the bad news), but a lot easier to fix (that’s the good news). DotComSecrets will give you the marketing funnels and the sales scripts you need to be able to turn on a flood of new leads into your business.

Social Media Marketing
Author: Guido Di Fraia
Publisher: HOEPLI EDITORE
Dopo il successo del loro primo libro, il gruppo di professionisti e docenti del Master in Social Media Marketing & Web Communication dello IULM, diretto da Guido Di Fraia, si è di nuovo riunito per dare vita a questa guida al marketing aziendale, totalmente nuova. Se il precedente volume ha rappresentato il primo manuale sull'uso dei social media per attività di marketing e comunicazione prodotto in Italia, questo nuovo lavoro è uno strumento, allo stesso tempo, più approfondito a livello teorico e più ricco di consigli pratici e indicazioni operative. Suo scopo è quello di mettere le aziende di ogni dimensione e tipologia in grado di tradurre in azioni pratiche il know-how distillato dagli autori. Per favorire l'immediato trasferimento dei contenuti alle diverse situazioni aziendali, il volume è diviso in due parti. La prima è incentrata su temi di carattere più trasversale, quali la progettazione e la pianificazione del piano strategico, la produzione dei contenuti e il digital storytelling aziendale. La seconda, più operativa, descrive invece come realizzare concretamente attività di digital e social media marketing per PMI e grandi realtà aziendali, sia nel Business to Business (B2B) sia nel Business to Consumer (B2C).

The Owned Media Doctrine
Author: Taulbee Jackson + Erik Deckers

“The Petraeus Doctrine for the 21st Century Marketer” The Owned Media Doctrine is to Marketing what The Petraeus Doctrine was to modern warfare - a complete re-thinking of philosophy, strategy and tactics, dictated by the way war has changed. Just like in warfare, marketing and media is not at all what it used to be - but marketers are still fighting the battle like it’s 1965. The Owned Media Doctrine is just that, a new doctrine for Marketing. A new philosophy, strategic approach and operational model for the marketing operations function based on how media works today, and how it will work in the future. It’s the marketer’s field manual for today’s two-way, real-time media environment. “In this remarkable – and remarkably useful – book, Jackson and Deckers provide the granular, step-by-step instructions and advice that senior digital marketers have craved for years. This is the book you’ll keep on your desk forever (or at least until they have time to write the 2nd edition).” —Jay Baer - Convince & Convert “Reis and Trout changed the way we think with Marketing Warfare. Anderson did it with The Long Tail. Jackson eloquently welcomes us to the new age of Owned Media and the reality we face as real-time marketers. An immediate must read....and more importantly, an immediate must do.” —Michael Grimes, VP, Omni-Channel Marketing at Finish Line “Everything in this book just makes so much sense!

The NOW Revolution
Author: Jay Baer, Amber Naslund
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
The social web has changed the way we do business forever The future of your company is not in measured, considered responses and carefully planned initiatives. Business today is about near-instantaneous response. About doing the best you can with extremely limited information. About every customer being a reporter, and every reporter being a customer. About winning and losing customers in real-time, every second of every day. About a monumental increase in the findable commentary about our companies. Having the time and information required to make a considered business decision is a luxury - a luxury that's quickly facing extinction. Yet business hasn't adapted to this evolution. And adapt you must. This book isn't about how to "do" social media. Instead, The Now Revolution outlines how you must retool your organization to make real-time business work for you rather than against you. Read about seven shifts that will help you make your company faster, smarter, and more social: Engineer a New Bedrock Find Talent You Can Trust Organize your Armies Answer the New Telephone Emphasize Response-Ability Build a Fire Extinguisher Make a Calculator The Now Revolution is pushing you to adapt the way you do business, from the inside out. It impacts your organization culturally, operationally, and functionally. This book is your guide to making the changes you need, and to harnessing the potential of this new communication era.

Surprising rules for successful monetization Innovation is the most important driver of growth. Today, more than ever, companies need to innovate to survive. But successful innovation—measured in dollars and cents—is a very hard target to hit. Companies obsess over being creative and innovative and spend significant time and expense in designing and building products, yet struggle to monetize them: 72% of innovations fail to meet their financial targets—or fail entirely. Many companies have come to accept that a high failure rate, and the billions of dollars lost annually, is just the cost of doing business. Monetizing Innovations argues that this is tragic, wasteful, and wrong. Radically improving the odds that your innovation will succeed is just a matter of removing the guesswork. That happens when you put customer demand and willingness to pay in the driver seat—when you design the product around the price. It’s a new paradigm, and that opens the door to true game change: You can stop hoping to monetize, and start knowing that you will. The authors at Simon Kucher know what they’re talking about. As the world’s premier pricing and monetization consulting services company, with 800 professionals in 30 cities around the globe, they have helped clients ranging from massive pharmaceuticals to fast-growing startups find success. In Monetizing Innovation, they distil the lessons of thirty years and over 10,000 projects into a practical, nine-step approach. Whether you are a CEO, executive leadership, or part of the team responsible for innovation and new product development, this book is for you, with special sections and checklist-driven summaries to make monetizing innovation part of your company’s DNA. Illustrative case studies show how some of the world’s best innovative companies like LinkedIn, Uber, Porsche, Optimizely, Draeger, Swarovski and big pharmaceutical companies have used principles outlined in this book. A direct challenge to the status quo “spray and pray” style of innovation, Monetizing Innovation presents a practical approach that can be adopted by any organization, in any industry. Most monetizing innovation failure point home. Now more than ever, companies must rethink the practices that have lost countless billions of dollars. Monetizing Innovation presents a new way forward, and a clear promise: Go from hope to certainty.
Author: Attilio Bertolucci
Poetry. Bilingual Editon. Translated from the Italian by Luigi Bonaffini. THE BEDROOM [La camera da letto] is Bertolucci's best-known work, so popular that the poet once read it to television viewers on a seven-hour program. It is a narrative poem that traces the history of the poet's family across seven generations with directness, precision and attention to everyday details, major events and fantastic surprises. Paolo Lagazzi writes in his introduction: "THE BEDROOM is a sort of a multi-novel, or a distillation of very diverse narrative forms and intuitions: a Bildungsroman and fairytale, an epoch novel, a novel-chronicle, a dramatic novel and a picaresque novel. An experimental work in the most authentic sense of the word..." "Nothing of time's essence escapes or is neglected by the author's ravenous sensibility, no less active in recording the multiple places in which existence rests (the city and the countryside, the sea and the plane, the Po river and the Maremma) in an exuberant display of forms, lights, perspectives, tonalities."—Luigi Ferrara
