Elmer Boutin: The Crossing of Marketing & IT
Elmer Boutin shares his thoughts on “Optimize” and why this approach is essential for online marketers today:
“I very much believe in looking at web marketing from a high level. It’s very important to work out a strategy for why it’s done and steps to measure for success before getting into the how and the what. I like this book a lot because Lee takes one through strategy before tactics.”
“Rather than just creating a simplistic “how to” guide, Lee takes the reader through a learning process which will help them develop their own strategy which will work for their business. There are no “cookie cutter” solutions in real life, and there are none in this book. Instead, you will learn what you need in order to develop realistic plans which will work for your business.”

Andrea is a self proclaimed technophile. social media enthusiast, and enjoys anything web related. Please see a sample of her review below:
“In case you are new to the space, or aren’t as nerdy as I am, Lee Odden is the CEO of TopRank Online Marketing and one of the heavy hitters in the Online Marketing space. He writes one of the best blogs out there, in my opinion, which is why it’s odd to me that “Optimize: How to Attract and Engage More Customers by Integrating SEO, Social Media, and Content Marketing,” is his first book. Err regardless, I was very happy to be able to give it a read.”
