Marketing Book Worth a Look: "The Big Data-Driven Business"

How to Use Big Data to Win Customers, Beat Competitors, and Boost Profits

November 24, 2014

In our "Marketing Book Worth a Look" feature last month on the LinkedIn Marketing Solutions blog, we showcased Jason Miller's new book Welcome to the Funnel, Proven Tactics to Turn Your Social and Content Marketing Up to 11, packed with tips to succeed in social and content marketing. No frills, no fluff, just useful, practical tactics, strategies and lessons from one modern marketer to another -- with a touch of rock 'n' roll flare.

For November, we wanted to build on Jason's tips by emphasizing the value of big data to fuel B2B and B2C marketing plans in 2015. For businesses that want to compete—and win—in today’s rapidly evolving data-driven world, the need to fully embrace big data is critical. That’s a fact, and that’s why Sean Callahan, Senior Manager, Content Marketing at LinkedIn teamed with Russell Glass, Head of Products at LinkedIn Marketing Solutions, to write the new book, The Big Data-Driven Business: How to Use Big Data to Win Customers, Beat Competitors, and Boost Profits.
