You Don't Have to Be on Twitter! Or any other social media site that's not generating results for your business.

Here are some critical topics addressed in this book:

  • How to find out where your customers and prospects are spending time online.
  • Ways to outperform your competition on Google.
  • Common Website mistakes that negatively impact your credibility.
  • How not to allow your Social Media sites to die on the vine.
  • Create long-standing relationships with clients using the power of Facebook.
  • Advanced features on LinkedIn to prospect and earn referrals.
  • Direct people to your Sweet Spot instead of Selling on Social Media.
Guest chapters by Jay Baer (Twitter), Erik Qualman (YouTube), Heather Lutze (Social Search), Terry Brock (Klout), and more!This book will serve as a roadmap for you and your team on how to increase leads, strengthen credibility, build long-term relationships, and win referral business on the web.

This is a nonfiction book on how you can use social media for your business (from small business stores to authors and more). It provides guidance on using social media, the context for using it effectively: identifying your audience and other suggestions for digital marketing, email marketing, and some others. Reading it will help you to determine where your customers and prospects are spending their time online. How you can outperform your competition on Google, website mistakes that can hinder you getting your customers, how you shouldn’t let our social media sites expire and creating long-standing relationships with Facebook, LinkedIn, and more. This book can be the roadmap you might need if you feel your social media is fizzing out. Besides the author there are also guest chapters by Jay Baer (Twitter), Erik Qualman (YouTube), Heather Lutze (Social Search), and Terry Brock (Klout).

Though it will resonate with those who are regular small business people, I think authors, artists and even actors can use this to help strengthen their social media performance and get those prospective customers to purchase their book, art, or even help the beginner actor to get their fans. And Social Media can be confusing for the most intelligent of people and insightful and relevant and this book will assist the person to use their social media smarter and better.

  1. For those on a budget, PromoRepublic ( try it) offers a 14-day free trial, though it does not offer priority customer support. For small and mid-sized businesses, the software offers four plans based on user needs. Each plan includes a number of useful features, but you'll want to determine which one best meets your specific needs. While there are several features that may be of value to you, a free version of the software is recommended to get a feel for it.
