Student-led in its design and development, the book incorporates digital marketing as central to what marketers do, and combines quality examples, assessment and online resources to support the teaching and learning of introductory marketing in a digital age.
The author integrates digital and social media marketing throughout the chapters and through student involvement in the development of it, the text has been made to be approachable and to appeal to students, with infographics, numerous images, and an engaging writing style. It facilitates the “flipped” approach to classroom teaching and is supported by a number of features and activities in every chapter, encouraging students to undertake course reading, class participation and revision. It includes case studies from global companies such as Nutella, Google, L’Oreal, Netflix, Airbnb, BirchBox, Uber, FitBit, Visit California and Coca-Cola. It also takes a social view of marketing, featuring cases tied to the UN’s PRME initiative to aid students in becoming sustainably-minded individuals.
The book is complemented by online instructor resources, including chapter-specific PowerPoint slides, an instructor manual, flipped classroom activities, as well as open access multiple choice questions (with solutions), videos, case studies, weblinks, a glossary and SAGE journal articles for students.
