Four Digital-Era Marketing Myths That Are Hurting Your Brand
The internet has changed the media and advertising landscape beyond recognition in the past 15 years.
Traditional marketing is outdated, ineffective and wasteful.
We're now in a new digital age of marketing.
Or are we?
Why you aren't growing
You're doing all the right things, but you just can't seem to grow.
Despite pumping thousands of dollars into digital and social campaigns, sales remain stubbornly flat.
Nothing seems to work, and you don't know why.
Know that you're not alone - new research from the IPA shows that millions of brands and companies all over the world are in the same boat.
This white paper will stop you wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars on advertising spend that doesn't work, and show you how to approach marketing in a way that sets you up for success.

We are all under the spell of four powerful digital myths that are:

- Stunting the growth of brands
Using the latest marketing effectiveness research from around the world, I explain each myth and show you how to overcome the challenges they bring.

- Killing brand purpose

Who should read this?
This booklet is for experienced digital marketers, strategists, entrepreneurs, or anyone who sells products or services online.
What you'll get
You'll understand why brands are struggling to grow in the digital era, and what you have to do to break out.
Each myth is broken down into three parts:
- An idea that we currently hold true
- Proof that it's wrong
- The reality behind the myth
- A principle to help overcome it
The principles are based on condensing the knowledge of a wide variety of classic marketing books and new best practices.
The last section highlights specific books, people and courses that I've personally found helpful if you'd like to explore a topic further.
