Social Media for Marketing encompasses the creativity and cultural diversity of the online fashion world while revealing the technical and business considerations behind a successful social media campaign. It is essential reading for all fashion students as they prepare to enter a digitally connected, ever-changing global industry. I can definitely see this being required reading for both undergraduate and postgraduate Fashion Management students. -- Karen Cross, Subject leader for Marketing, Fashion and Retail, Robert Gordon University, UK This book's approach is exactly the format I want for my classroom pedagogy...which perhaps is why this is the most glowing review I have ever done. This is exactly (in my opinion) what students respond to...case studies, engaging stories, leading business/marketing ideas. Excellent all around. This book has so many amazing interviews. This text is current and well positioned. I have looked at TONS of new media/consumer texts...I really think the author has done a great day with key quotes from current industry leaders to validate the chapter assertions made. I love the breakdown of the text...very 2.0 thinking itself. Great use of graphics, charts, and really conveys somewhat complex economics and business markets in an easy to understand format. -- Jason Schmitt, Green Mountain College, USA This is a very vibrant textbook giving insight into the world of digital fashion marketing and how this impacts change within fashion brands -- Barbara Diack, Lecturer in Fashion Retailing, Heriot-Watt University, UK
