“It is a truism that, in media, everyone knows they are being sold something all the time. It is exactly because of this that we become blind to the subtle seductions of contemporary commercial culture—and Michael Serazio is here to open our eyes.” —Mark Deuze, author of Media Life and Media Work “Michael Serazio has produced an extremely important and engaging book: well researched and highly readable, it provides a detailed and compelling account of the mechanisms of consumer governance at work in the digital age. It deserves a wide readership among scholars and students alike.” —Liz Moor, Goldsmiths, University of London Amidst the profound upheavals in technology, economics, and culture that mark the contemporary moment, marketing strategies have multiplied, as brand messages creep ever deeper into our private lives. In Your Ad Here, an engaging and timely new book, Michael Serazio investigates the rise of “guerrilla marketing” as a way of understanding increasingly covert and interactive flows of commercial persuasion. Digging through a decade of trade press coverage and interviewing dozens of agency CEOs, brand managers, and creative directors, Serazio illuminates a diverse and fascinating set of campaign examples: from the America’s Army video game to Pabst Blue Ribbon’s “hipster hijack,” from buzz agent bloggers and tweeters to The Dark Knight’s “Why So Serious?” social labyrinth. Blending rigorous analysis with eye-opening reporting and lively prose, Your Ad Here reveals the changing ways that commercial culture is produced today. Serazio goes behind-the-scenes with symbolic creators to appreciate the professional logic informing their work, while giving readers a glimpse into this new breed of “hidden persuaders” optimized for 21st-century media content, social patterns, and digital platforms. Ultimately, this new form of marketing adds up to a subtle, sophisticated orchestration of consumer conduct and heralds a world of advertising that pretends to have nothing to sell. Michael Serazio is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication at Fairfield University. An award-winning former journalist, he continues to write about popular culture, advertising, and new media for The Atlantic, among other publications. In the Postmillennial Pop series

Integrated Marketing Communications is one of the hottest ideas in marketing today - and for good reason. Marketers today no longer feel limited to traditional ways of doing things. More and more marketers, both large and small, are realizing there is a wide range of ways to reach potential customers. This means you can better target your marketing communications, leading to more successful marketing programs. If this is true - and it is - then why do we hear so much about IMC not working? The reason is simple. IMC is much more than simply discussing new ways of communicating or using traditional means in new ways. IMC is a way of planning overall marketing communications strategy by first looking to your customers and asking what is the best way of reaching them. That is why Strategies for Implementing Integrated Marketing Communications was written. In 10 comprehensive but concise and easy-to-read chapters the author outlines approaches for developing the most effective IMC strategies and then tailoring the tactics needed to implement them effectively.

Nontraditional Media in Marketing and Advertising by Robyn Blakeman is a concise guide that offers a step-by-step approach to the strategic use of nontraditional media by both marketing and advertising professionals. The text focuses on methods used as an alternative choice to more traditional marketing and advertising methods such as print and broadcast mediums. To assess the efficacy of nontraditional methods, Blakeman looks at why a marketing team might choose nontraditional media vehicles over (or alongside) more traditional ones, how it can be used to attract smaller niche markets, and where nontraditional media is headed. Blakeman also explores how nontraditional media, which can offer creative and unusual options for marketing and adversiting, deliver meaningful and memorable ads that are often more effective at reaching the target audience than traditional vehicles, since they are often unexpected. Understanding nontraditional media and its role in delivering a strategic message to the target market requires professionals to understand what options are available and how they will be used, as well as the projected return on investment. This must-have guide is perfect for facilitating this understanding!
