A Holistic Guide to Online Marketing
WHAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT
What would you think if you went to the doctor for an annual physical and he or she only checked your right arm and your left foot? That’s not a full physical, right? There’s a lot more that needs to be done in order to make sure you’re functioning properly — as a whole.
It’s the same with online marketing. It has to be looked at holistically, as one. Yet most of the time this is not the case. Instead, each facet of online marketing is often addressed in a silo, disassociated from the rest. This often results in fractured and ineffective online initiatives that leave organizations feeling frustrated.
A Holistic Guide to Online Marketing provides a global view of online marketing, looking at your website, blog and social media efforts as a whole.
First, we discuss three major disciplines — search engine optimization, user experience and conversion — to give you a solid understanding of what each of these methodologies are, and why they’re important.
Then, we dive into a practical approach on how to APPLY each of these disciplines to your website, blog and social media efforts, respectively. The book is chock-full of actionable steps on how to assess your website, blog and social media — and make meaningful improvements.

“It’s pretty tough today to create a comprehensive look at online marketing. The complexities, channels and quickly shifting best practices make it a tall order. But Joey Donovan Guido has done it! The book is filled with relevant examples and recommendations for improving this vital aspect of your marketing.”
— Drew McLellan, Co-founder of McLellan Marketing Group
“Joey Donovan Guido’s new book on ‘Holistic Online Marketing’ seems deceptively simple comprising three sections on Foundation, Your Website, and Your Blog; plus a great section on Social Media. But don’t let the simplicity and clarity of excellent writing and editing fool you — the book puts together the fundamentals in a powerful way starting with the ‘Doctor Analogy’ (you need to assess and work on the total ‘patient’).
Then there’s the excellent formula of attending to SEO, UX, plus Conversions on your website (each have a chapter). Should your blogs convert visitors to prospects? While most of us focus on using blogs for content marketing, Guido advises that you are building relationships on your blog … and this can and does lead to conversions. That’s an important nuance and the book is filled with them — excellent for newbies, clients, and even experienced publishing teams. Don’t miss the section on conversions on LinkedIn.”
— Scott Frangos, Founder and Chief Optimizer for Webdirexion LLC, the digital marketing agency

Author Joey Donovan Guido keeps your attention with illustrative stories and entertaining metaphors, while backing up his advice about SEO, user experience and conversion with concrete research. Even digitally-savvy practitioners like myself will find themselves making a list of critical things to improve upon.”
