Brown and Hayes have written a wonderful, well structured and easy to read page turner about a fascinating idea that should affect the way every thinking marketer should see the world. Christoph Kaderli, Vice President EMEA Marketing, Performance Management & Alliances at Cognos Ltd & CMO Council Europe Advisory Board Member. "Today's market is truly 'always on'. This is having a dramatic impact on the way that we market and sell to our existing customers and prospects. Influencer Marketing provides an excellent reference on how you can drive and achieve significant change in your traditional mindset to ensure that you can address the new and dynamic challenges that now appear every day'. Ask yourself, 'Do I change or do more of the same? There is only one correct answer" . Jim Cassidy VP Marketing EMEA, BEA Systems A thought provoking book that challenges the way we think and who we target. A must for any skilled marketer wishing to beat his competitor." Dr Anthony Marsella, Chief Marketing Officer Samsung Electronics and co-author "Marketing Revolution". "Cutting Edge Marketing at its best. This is a must read for any Technology Marketer" James Hart, Marketing Director, EMEA, Research In Motion (Blackberry) "If you think you know about marketing in the 21st century, press & analyst relations, the value of conferences, the buying cycle - think again. Influencer Marketing will make you question even your basic understanding of marketing, and who really wields power in the market place." Joe Barrett, Director, Strategic Marketing, Qualcomm Europe "This book explains why today's marketing model is a very different playing field. ROI is high on the agenda. The power of the network enables emphasis on 1:1 conversations and choice, dialogues and communities, which in turn leads to honesty and transparency in messaging." Jon Tutcher Head of Marketing, Sun Microsystems UK & Ireland "Influencer Marketing brings together common sense with some insightful ideas in a book that provides marketers with useful tips for extending their own influence." Ruth Mortimer, Editor, Brand Strategy Magazine âIt is rare to find a marketing book which is useful from page one. Most provide useful maxims to include in presentations, but few back this up with practical approaches to use in anger in the workplace. Influencer Marketing has been invaluable in focusing my organisation on the invisible influencer". Robert Posner, European Marketing Director, Harte-Hanks
