AudienceMarketing in the Age of Subscribers, Fans and Followers
Proprietary audience development is now a core marketing responsibility. Every company needs audiences to survive. They are where you find new customers and develop more profitable relationships. And yet, most companies today treat their email, mobile, and social media audiences like afterthoughts instead of the corporate assets they are. With AUDIENCE, Jeff Rohrs seeks to change this dynamic through adoption of The Audience Imperative. This powerful mandate challenges all companies to use their paid, owned, and earned media to not only sell in the short-term but also increase the size, engagement, and value of their proprietary audiences over the long-term. As content marketing professionals have discovered, the days of “build it and they will come” are long gone. If you’re looking for a way to gain a lasting advantage over your competition, look no further and start building your email, Facebook, Google, Instagram, mobile app, SMS, Twitter, website, and YouTube audiences to last.

This powerful mandate challenges all companies to treat their email, mobile, and social audiences like the corporate assets they are.

"A highly practical book, Audience details the why-to and how-to of building your own brand's 'proprietary audience' of potential customers, supporters, fans, and advocates. Jeff Rohrs has written a succinct, to the point, and extremely useful book that should be on every marketer's desk today." —Don Peppers and Martha Rogers, PhD, coauthors of Extreme Trust: Honesty as a Competitive Advantage "This is a strategic book, a plea to recognize (before it's too late) the value of earning audience engagement. In many ways, it's the latest chapter following the line of thought I introduced in Permission Marketing." —Seth Godin, author "During a time of unprecedented change, volatility, and innovation, marketers would do well to rethink their obsession with quantity (eyeballs, impressions, likes) and, instead, focus on quality (human beings, employees, customers). Audience reminds, challenges, and inspires us to prioritize, connect, and truly engage." —Joseph Jaffe, author of Flip the Funnel and Z.E.R.O. "This is the book I've been waiting for because it ignites a conversation that businesses desperately need to have. To be a 'publisher' in our social and digital world means that your audience matters more than ever—and is the key to your success. An audience for your content is your biggest marketing asset, and Jeff's book shows you not just why, but how to serve, honor, and delight the people in your audience—first, and relentlessly." —Ann Handley, Chief Content Officer, MarketingProfs; coauthor of Content Rules "Without attention and connection, you've got a big pile of nothing—especially in social media and digital marketing. This book provides a unique and thorough analysis of the real motivations of the most important people to your company: your audience. Read it." —Jay Baer, New York Times best-selling author of Youtility: Why Smart Marketing Is About Help not Hype "So many brands out there create content without a clear business goal. Jeff Rohrs has the answer: build loyal subscribers. This book will transform your content marketing strategy. Buy it, use it, and pass it on to your CMO." —Joe Pulizzi, founder, Content Marketing Institute; author of Epic Content Marketing
