In this article, I’m going to be sharing with you, these six books that I think are most reached for any digital marketer or for anyone trying to get into the digital marking space, whether you’re, trying to build an agency, whether you already have one, whether you even Go into the freelancing way or really, whatever you’re doing in the digital marketing space, even if you’re doing copywriting, for example.
These are six books that I personally think are incredible, and these are six books that have had a really profound impact on my life and my skill set as well as my craft in the digital marketing space. Now, for those of you who don’t know me and are new to the blog first of all, welcome a bit about me. I’ve been in the space for around two years. I decided to go down the agency route, so I built my social media marketing agency and I scaled.
That agency passes six figures in nine months. Really my passion is building brands online and that’s really what my agency mode will see it. Does it hopes ecommerce brands? Go to a 7 and 8-figure online, but that’s a bit about myself. Now, let’s get right into the books before I do. I just want to give a little note on reading. I personally think that brilliance just one of those habits that if I don’t have in place in my life, everything just sorts of crumble, there’s it’s just funny how it happens.
But when I make we didn’t happen, everything just falls into place. All my personal development habits, even my wavelength of thoughts, are, is just much better. It’s just more calm, I’m able to think much more clearly and so to say that wind has had a profound effect on my life. It would be probably an understatement, but without further ado, let’s get right into it. Now. The first book that I personally recommend is growth hacker marketing by Ryan holiday.
This book will give you a little insight into how virality works and really Ryan holiday goes on to really explain what good hacking even means and the just insane power of online advertising that the fact that you can track everything and really just reveal some really cool Hacks that you can use to grow a business online so especially if you’re new to the space. I really recommend this book. It’s really just a great entry point into cool fact in an online advertising, and it makes it very clear why online advertising is just so much more powerful than billboards or magazines or just the traditional marketing mediums.
So we recommend this book, not the next books or classics. If you haven’t read them, obviously you know it’s an absolute must and I personally love this guy. His name is Russell Brunson and the book is calm secrets, and so I recommend that you pick up. First, Stockholm sequence, then the second one is expert secrets and the third book which self actually order. Just today, it’s actually traffic secrets and so ya.
Wan na see this list books are great. It talks to you about how to drive traffic to offerings. It talks to you about how to actually get people excited about something right: how to build a tribe online and how to get people to buy your products and not just buy a product but buy into a brand right. And so I really like the 360 approach that this book’s give you and honestly, if you’re, really confused about this digital marketing thing, you want to get started.
These two books are amazing right, I’m actually down below in the description. I will leave a link to this two books, so you can actually claim a free copy. All you have to do spaceship and honestly, it’s just an incredible book, and I personally really really recommend it. Russell Branson is, is a really really cool. Guy and honestly, I’ve got so much respect for word from what is built and really what what is doing for the digital marketing community so really like this books definitely must read now the next book, I would say it’s more for agency owners, and that is the Emf we visited okay, so this is a great book for agency owners and the reason why I say that is because this book is really what popularized the concept of working on the business instead of working in the business, and so this book, really, you know, gives You an insight into what it actually takes to work on the business and not in the business right how to actually think in systems how to remove yourself from the equation and how to actually duplicate yourself and not be enslaved to plants.
Okay, and so, though. It’s not for agencies specifically gives you a bunch of examples like, for example, bakery, etc, etc. It’s really a great book for entrepreneurs and, if you’re, not in the agency space, it’s still an amazing book. But if you build an agency, this book will give you an insight into what we don’t want to do everything ourselves and what we want to delegate certain tasks. Do we have that you know time location, freedom to an extent, but not only that but actually be able to scale our agency much faster.
So this is a pretty old book. But honestly, I it’s really just one of those books that have they’re they’re, very powerful, and it’s also a book that not many people know about. It says here that if only I sold 150,000 copies, which isn’t too great – and I guess I think this book sold like 300,000 copies just give me an idea, and this book is relatively new and so yeah. I wan na see an amazing book and I could not recommend it more and so yeah if you really struggling because you don’t have enough time, you feel like you are.
You know slaving away for your clients, maybe you’re doing a kind of like a freelancing game with article marketing. This book is certainly for you and I will really you know, teach you how to think in systems and how to build a scalable model. So that is that the next book is will go beyond advertising now, for those of you who don’t know who or goofy is here’s a picture of the guy unarguably, he is one of the best marketers and advertisers and agencies owners in the past decade or two, Even he has built one of the most successful agencies in the world named after him, okay, we and in this book – and we can sleep into the best advertising practices andrey, has a very data-centric approach and that this book is particularly good for learning.
How to write very good coffee, okay, so this book, if you are looking to write better coffee, if you’re, looking to just pick the brain of someone who’s built an incredibly successful agency like go giveaway. If I’m not mistaken the revenues around 300 million a year, which is quite a lot and so he’s built, an incredibly successful you can see – has worked with some of the biggest clients in the space, and yet this work I mean it, gives you even illustrations about The as that he is wrong and that he is very data-driven and that’s really one of things.
I’r really makes me passionate about the online marketing space and the fact that it can be so data-driven and okay.We. I definitely am one of the one of those advertisers that will teach you a ton, and so definitely I go ahead and pick this up, and the final book is scientific advertising by Claude Hopkins. You could say that Claude Hopkins is in the same class, as will Gilby they’re, both incredibly good advertisers and I’m pretty sure, they’re from the same era, and so these two books are not related to the remark.
The great thing with this books is that it will teach you a lot of marketing principles that are incredibly powerful. Okay, and the thing about that is that Diller marketing is not this new hacks or this new principles. It’s just marketing principles that have been around for a very long time. The only difference is just that the medium is different and also the fact that we can actually track much more, and so it will be much more data driven, and so that is why reading old-school books like these will teach you a ton about telemarketing, simply because You can transfer the marketing principles that have been around for the longest time and that the top marketers in the space have used, and you can put them in practice into digital marketing.
In fact, I would say that a lot of the more the old marketing principles work tremendously well in digital marketing, for example, long from coffee, for example, advertorials right. A lot of people in the digital marketing sphere think that, just because you’re running facebook, that people don’t want to read long term copy or they don’t want to see like a very raw organic picture. I will just tell you to ask yourself: what do people want to do when they jump on Facebook or they log into Instagram? They are there to check out their friends right, their pets, their grandparents, whatever it is, and to read stories.
So that is why long-term copy, which tells the story which addresses pain, points which trigger emotions and has a very opinion, call to action to an advertorial looking landing page, and that is why that performs so much better than something that really looks like an app right. Why? Because people have put up massive walls around anything that looks like an app right, and so whenever they see an ad, they will just you know, automatically scroll right past it because they’ve put up massive walls, so we need to penetrate those walls unintended and the way You do that is by writing long term copy by making an advertorial type ads, and these these books are amazing on on those topics, and so yeah highlight recommend these two books, and that is pretty much it for this article guys hope you guys enjoyed this article.
