William Bonaddio , Social Media Marketer and International Keynote Speaker

"The business of Influencer marketing is probably the most misunderstood of the marketing practices. Confusion about what it does, who should use, its efficacy and effect are topics bandied about by the press consistently. Gordon has managed to distil the practice into a simple to understand book that manages to outline what can sometimes seem the contradictory approaches needed to execute truly effective influencer marketing depending on the platforms, industries and needs of brands. The reality is there is not one approach, the ‘right approach’ very much depends on all the variables, and that’s what Gordon has manged to explain in this book. I highly recommend it for anyone starting in the industry or those currently in the industry looking to expand their understanding and step outside their comfort zone."
