4 marketing books to read in 2020

Online marketing is a big unknown for many businesses. It is common practice to outsource these activities to the experts however it’s always a good approach to have at least a basic understanding of the work you are outsourcing. My name is Charlotte and I opened up Colouring Department in 2017. Colouring Department delivers professional Branding, design and marketing services using the industry best practices. I have been building up a big list of books that I have read to improve Colouring department services over the years and they have been amazingly successful. So I am eager to share them with you.

Below is a list of 4 of my favourites from my research in 2019. I have loved reading them and I want to transfer the information directly to you:

The title “Don’t make me think” is so clever because the idea behind the book is to make it easier for users to navigate through your site and to easily get in contact with your business.
