Preface to eMarketing The Essential Guide to Marketing in a Digital World
I’m immensely proud to current the fifth Version of the Quirk advertising and marketing textbook. It’s now 6 years since we started work on the primary version, and it’s fairly superb to see how a lot it has grown.
Not solely in line with the modifications in our trade, but in addition by crucial enter from our passionate and sort group of learners and educators. The evolution of the self-discipline of promoting is greatest represented by the change in the subtitle of our e-book.
Once we began, this e-book was known as eMarketing: the important information to digital advertising and marketing. Immediately as you will note, we’ve got adjusted this to eMarketing: the important information to advertising and marketing in a digital world. This variation has been a simple and pure one.
It underlines an vital shift in the way in which we take into consideration and engages with digital. Digital just isn’t a channel in the identical means that a marketer may view tv or radio as a channel.
As a substitute digital is a lifestyle. It’s the experiential glue that binds beforehand separated media collectively. Due to this, digital permits a cohesive model expertise that wasn’t beforehand on supply.
The truth is, it’s extremely seemingly that throughout the subsequent version or two, we are going to want to acknowledge this shift in the function of digital by ditching the “e” in eMarketing. At greatest it’s rapidly changing into passé, at worst it can develop into fully redundant.
At Quirk, we now not see ourselves as a digital advertising and marketing company, however quite as a advertising and marketing company born digital. We nonetheless take into account ourselves to be specialists in the digital realm and as digital natives, we nonetheless have bits and bytes coursing by our veins.
Nonetheless, it’s due to our understanding of manufacturers and the way to construct them in a digital world that our shoppers are turning to us for way over simply a web site or some search engine optimization. Immediately we discover ourselves because the lead company on a variety of prestigious manufacturers.
These manufacturers see that their clients reside in a digital world and subsequently belief a companion like Quirk to lead them in that world. Our textbook is now used in nearly 1000 tutorial establishments globally.
That is largely due to courageous and forward-thinking educators to whom we owe a big debt of gratitude.
They’ve walked a journey with us, embraced a e-book revealed by an company (a truth which hasn’t gained simple acceptance by the very conventional tutorial group), and have supplied us with super encouragement and invaluable suggestions to make sure that this e-book retains tempo not solely with a fast-moving trade however with their evolving wants as nicely.
We imagine in schooling. Educated folks make higher choices and have extra potential for an improved life. We additionally imagine that notably for tertiary schooling to have an efficient future a partnership between the personal and tutorial sectors is important.
It ensures the easiest schooling is as accessible as it may be to as many individuals as potential. By making our textbook obtainable at no cost on-line we hope to propel this dream ahead.

Related and sensible content material can thus be delivered by the methodology greatest fitted to the scholar on-line, contact, or a hybrid of each. So as to successfully be a part of forces, we should see the top of the Quirk Schooling model.
That is barely unhappy for me however is a part of an vital evolution and I’m immensely excited in regards to the top quality of scholars Pink & Yellow is already producing at this early stage of their mixed journey.
The future holds nice promise certainly. From a content material perspective, this e-book is a actual step up from the earlier version. As with the 4th Version, we’ve maintained Quirk’s Suppose, Create, Interact, and Optimise construction.
