9780061151118: Punk Marketing: Get Off Your Ass and Join the Revolution

The marketing revolution is here

Punk Marketing is the long-awaited and breathless uprising that businesses want, deserve, and desperately need.

In this radical guide, Richard Laermer and Mark Simmons take an irreverent, penetrating look at the seismic change in the relationship between the people who sell stuff—products, services, entertainment—and those who purchase it. They demonstrate that to survive in business, a revolutionary approach is needed—one they have branded "Punk Marketing"—and it's one we all need to understand, for the traditional divisions among commerce, content, and consumers are continuing to blur ever more rapidly.

Never dull, sometimes controversial, but always a helluva lot of fun, Punk Marketing presents a manifesto for any business-person needing to engage consumers—or any consumer seeking to understand and employ their newfound power. And here's the good news: It's based on principles that have existed forever. In an age of digital video recorders, "branded" entertainment, cell phones, TV, multiplayer online games, and never-ending social networking, a coherent approach to marketing has never been more vital. With Punk Marketing, there's a built-in plan to equip you with tools to make all this change work out just fine, thanks.

About the Author:

Richard Laermer is CEO of RLM PR (RLMpr.com). A renowned speaker, he is author of seven books such as the bestseller Full Frontal PR and 2011: Trendspotting. He hosts Taking Care of Business on TLC and is a commentator on CNNMoney.com. He lives in New York—and on tons of airplanes.



Mark Simmons has twenty years of marketing experience and has worked at the groundbreaking agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky. He is now a full-time consultant and lives in Santa Monica, California.

From Publishers Weekly:

TV co-host Laermer (of TLC's Taking Care of Business) and agency alum Simmons (formerly of Crispin Porter + Bogusky) combine their considerable experience and wit to jolt readers into a new understanding of marketing's ever-changing arena. The premise-and the promise-of their approach to marketing is likely a familiar one: power is shifting from corporation to consumer, meaning that "a brand is formed in the eye of the beholder-the consumer-and is not the property of the marketer." As such, old-fashioned truisms like "any publicity is good publicity" have been subsumed by a new paradigm: "mediocre marketing does more harm than doing nothing." Blunt, fair, fearless and outrageous-just like the marketing style they espouse-Laermer and Simmons explicate the marketing methods of the future in a tour of blogs, lingo, games, the "real simple" concept and the new standards of cyber-socializing. Techniques involve story-telling, contests, product placement, emerging technology and the increasingly tricky business of crafting emotional connections. Asides include tales of planned scarcity (like "limited edition" sneakers), examples of broadcasters' waning power and the potential for targeting audiences "at every moment of the day." Though it covers some well-trod ground, there's plenty of sound analysis and prescient advice here (not to mention humor) for forward-thinking marketers.
