  9. Interview with Ira Kaufman and Chris Horton, Authors of Digital Marketing

    Interview excerpt:

    Why did you write Digital Marketing: Integrating Strategy and Tactics with Values?

    In consulting with various corporations and nonprofits and in teaching students, we noted a widening gap between the expectations of the rapidly evolving digital marketplace and the preparedness of business practitioners and students. Digital marketing education as a distinct subject was almost nonexistant, and static print textbooks were quickly becoming an anconronism in the digital age.

    Challenged to do our part to close the “digital gap,” we set out to develop a new approach to digital marketing education, one that updates traditional marketing concepts and rethinks traditional lecture styles and resource delivery methods in lieu of digital. The result is, we believe, an innovation – a comprehensive primer on digital marketing that offers practical guidance to current business managers and executives and relevant training to future business leaders.
