The rise of the digital age means that consumers have unprecedented access to information and they're no longer interested in a "one size fits all screens" experience. Multi-screen Marketing: The Seven Things You Need to Know to Reach Your Customers Across TVs, Computers, Tablets, and Mobile Phones is a comprehensive guide to understanding the multi-screen consumer. Written by thought leaders from Microsoft's Advertising Division, the book identifies what drives consumer behavior across devices and digital platforms - sequentially, simultaneously, at home, at work and everywhere in between. The underlying concept is that marketers need to move beyond a technology feature-obsessed approach where a device's capabilities dictate one's marketing plan, and instead, focus on the underlying needs and motivations of their customers. This approach can help marketers simplify their strategy, while enabling them to leverage the right screen with the right message in the right moment.

For generations, marketing has been hypocritical. We've been taught to market to others the way we hate being marketed to (cold-calling, flyers, ads); yet we're all aware that no one likes to be marketed to. Potential and current customers want to be listened to, validated, and have a platform to be heard -- especially online. This book shows people how to create a mindset and systems that perpetually attract the right customers. Instead of teaching the tired method of Push & Pray (pushing out marketing messages, and praying people buy), UnMarketing focuses on the Pull & Stay technique (pulling your market towards you and staying/engaging with them, so when they have the need for your product/service, you're the logical choice).
From research frameworks and concept development to planning, budgeting, media placement, and program implementation, marketers have not kept up - to the detriment of themselves and their companies.

Pearson calls for nothing short of a marketing revolution. You must throw out almost everything you hold dear and embrace technology, a new role in business, and real accountability. The Old Rules of Marketing Are Dead has what you need to reinvent your products, your services--and your future.
