“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

An invaluable reference, this book provides insights, suggestions, examples, and resources intended to demystify the arcane world of art print marketing. Barney Davey has authored this handbook of practical advice to help visual artists succeed in the print market. The book is a result of his experiences and perspective culled from advising and observing leading art publishers and print artists in three decades. It details how artists can use the print market to take control of their career and create a profitable business putting their original work into prints. The wealth of benefits for visual artists in the print market include: secondary income from reproducing originals into prints; third stream income from licensing; greater awareness for their work; growing their collector base; diversifying their pricing and portfolio and keeping pace with demand for their originals. Given these advantages, it is surprising to find other business and marketing books for artists offer scant coverage of the print market. The paucity of print market information makes the book's insider insights priceless. Any visual artist with the desire to enjoy commercial success will find this book useful, inspiring and informative.

TRAIN THE INTERNET TO SELL BOOKS FOR YOU Book marketing doesn't need to be an exhausting hamster wheel of promotion and publicity. Put your book sales on autopilot... so you can focus on writing your next bestseller. FAST AND EFFECTIVE BOOK MARKETING This book is a crash course on some of the more creative book marketing strategies I've discovered in my first year of publishing fiction. It will provide simple, actionable, measurable steps to publishing a high quality book quickly, doing only as much marketing as is necessary to launch your book like a rock star, and keep it selling enough to support you while you write another. I only mention the things I actually use, that I know work, and ignore options that don't get results. We'll discuss paid advertising, release strategies, pricing and pre-orders, book giveaways, how to target your audience, viral exposure and press coverage, marketing hacks, and how to reach your first $1000 on Kindle. LAUNCH BIG EVEN IF YOU'RE STARTING SMALL Guerrilla is a style of warfare intended to surprise and harass enemies. It can also mean using unconventional and usually inexpensive means to generate interest or raise concern among the public. That's basically how I'll use it: book marketing strategies from the trenches to help you win the publishing war. However, instead of "surprise and harass" I will focus on "surprise and delight." First you need to show up and get in front of the right people. Then you need to surprise and delight them. You need to be remarkable enough to be noticed. Few authors are using these strategies (yet) so it's relatively easy to outrank your competition, get more visibility and reach new readers.
