Epic Content Marketing by Joe Pulizzi

The king of the Content Marketing Institute covers everything from developing your strategy to measuring its impact and encourages readers to set aspirational goals. The last ten pages or so of this book lit a fire under me—I felt so ready to conquer the world. I love it when a book does that. Whether you’re a content marketing pro or a beginner, if you only read one marketing book this year, this book the one to read.

I’ll admit I’m in the middle of this one, but it still makes my list. After defining the content “rules”, it focuses on various channels and ends with real-life examples of content marketing at work. The “Ideas You Can Steal” section after each case study is a great source of concepts you can take action on.

I only recently discovered Ryan but he’s quickly become one of my favorites.
