I like this book for two reasons:

1) the book gives marketers and business people a road map for handling the new realities of media today; with tablets, mobile, social and the web we have more channels and more strategies to worry about, Marketing in the Round is a concept that helps you to succeed across those channels and strategies by thinking about integrated marketing.

2) the book provides helpful questions, tips, audit questions, to develop a marketing plan.

Marketing in the Round is a must-read for professionals across industries and markets - including B2C, B2B and B2G. My only regret is that it wasn't around a few years ago, when I was working through some particularly challenging sales and branding issues with a growing technology firm.

What I love about Marketing in the Round is that it takes a very holistic approach to marketing - recognizing that the marketing function cannot be properly executed in a vacuum from either the related disciplines

On my to read list... based on a recommendation from Drew's Marketing Minute blog:
Marketing in the Round (is your marketing a 360 effort?)
by Drew McLellan, JULY 13TH, 2012

You know those people who modify who they are, based on who’s around or where they are? They behave one way at work, one way on Friday nights and another way on Sunday mornings. I think it’s difficult to trust people who don’t live one, integrated life.

We react the same way to brands and companies. Part of what creates a sense

A straight forward, well-written marketing manual on how to integrate your departments in a flowing and structured manner that will have everyone in your company working towards the same goal. Both Gini & Geoff are great story-tellers, highlighting different case studies to emphasize each tactic and strategy throughout the book. If your company is struggling with getting everyone on board to market as one whole and participatory unit, this is a must read for you.

Excellent reference and instruction guide for bringing collaborative marketing campaigns that can leverage the power and effectiveness of converged media (e.g., paid, owned and earned) to an organization

Great read. Had worksheets and a very detailed look at marketing.

Woah. Gini Dietrich had a hand writing this, too! And, I know both authors, so I hope Goodreads fixes that faux pas.

That said, this provides a realistic view of organizational models and why silos should no longer be. Social media has altered the course of structure, and those working independently without integration will fail.

Super generic, but a good survey course for a very new marketing person, that covers all the bases at a very superficial level. Don't expect to come away with new strategies, but you'll probably pick up at least one new tactic.

The reality today is that marketers and PR pros have to work together to create a seamless experience for the customer. That means that people from many different communications disciplines need to work together in harmony. In order to achieve that, it helps if people know something about what the other people in the group do, and the pros and cons of each approach. This book helps provide that information in a format that not only makes this a good book to read from cover to cover, it will also ...more

I can see how the book can be useful for students and novice marketers, but for me the mid section with a list of different marketing tactics, their positive and negative sides, was really tiring to read. Gini is a great blogger, but if you're a seasoned marketer, you'd be better off reading her blog regularly, instead of the book.

Just finished. Great comprehensive return to integrated marketing theory with today's mediums. It end a little abruptly, but is great re-exposure to the challenges (and corresponding solutions) facing marketing and business in general today.

Good book on the basics of marketing integration. Used this as a text book in my MKT4900 Online Marketing Strategies class at Ohio University in Spring 2013. Well received by the students.
