Didit Executive Chairman and Co-Founder, Kevin Lee Authors New Book, 'The Eyes Have It'

Reveals How Marketers Must Navigate the New Digital Media & Advertising Landscape in Which Technology, Targeting and Respons

NEW YORK, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- As Madison Avenue continues to struggle to adapt its methods and thinking to an evolving media landscape, a new generation of digital marketers has already blazed a path through this environment with new technologies that target, measure and elicit a direct response from critical consumer eyeballs while old methods of media buying continue falling by the wayside, according to author Kevin Lee.

Methods for marketers and traditional ad agencies to compete and succeed in the digital marketplace are revealed in The Eyes Have It: How to Market in an Age of Divergent Consumers, Media Chaos and Advertising Anarchy (Easton Studio Press, Hardcover, 2007), written by Kevin Lee, executive chairman and co-founder of Didit, a 2007 Inc. 500/Deloitte New York Fast 50 and North America Fast 500 full-service online advertising and search engine marketing services firm.

"Kevin Lee is a rare combination of head in the clouds and feet on the ground. A virtual living encyclopedia of the online media world, Kevin combines incredible strategic insight with a fully developed capability to translate that insight into actionable plans," said Les Kruger, director of online marketing for a Fortune 500 online retailer. "There is likely no one in the online marketing world with a greater combination of insight, pragmatism, and enthusiasm."

Having studied and participated in the rise of targeted digital media since its inception in the late 1990's, author Kevin Lee answers those critical questions on the minds of marketers:

-- How can marketers know whether their ad agencies are capable of executing profitable digital marketing campaigns? -- What steps can ad agencies take to ensure that they're not falling behind the curve? -- How does one build a "digital-ready" in-house team? -- What new challenges do auction-media marketplaces present to marketers and ad agencies? -- How must media plans evolve to take account of the inherent dynamism and instability of the digital media marketplace?
