"30 Days to Social Media Success. Is it possible? I wouldn't have thought so until I read Gail Martin's astonishing little book. I love it! She shows you how, in just 30 minutes a day for 30 days, you too can be a social media success story. Highly recommended."

Gail Martin has written a pretty nifty book of ideas. She starts with your marketing goals, and won my heart when she pointed out how important it is to IDENTIFY your marketing goals. So, before she even gets into Social Media Marketing, she points out the important of MARKETING in and of itself.

That's a welcome relief from many books that give you so much technology and so little thought-provoking, ideas. That said, her best chapter is the chapter on Twitter, which has both ideas about how and what to Tweet plus some great web links to really some very cool tools for Twitter. She also discusses Facebook vs. LinkedIn, and I got a kick out of her jokes about what sort of "friends" really are on Facebook. She nails the distinction between the two sorts of friendship - Facebook friendships vs. LinkedIn friendships.

Unfortunately, besides the chapter on Twitter, the book is weak on actual web resources and places to go to learn about social media. That's a pity because I think she knows more about the details than she lets on in this book. A fun, provocative, inexpensive read... So it will stay more on my beach reading list than my reference shelf, but still stay it will.

I teach Social Media marketing and SEO and you can find me (I love to hear comments about books, as I try to read and review as many as I can) through my profile or just Google Jason McDonald and SEO. Enjoy the book.

With so many social media titles clogging bookstore shelves these days, it's hard to know which will be worth your while, and which you can skip.

As someone who's read many of them, as well as been steeped in social media marketing seminars and webinars (both as a teacher and student), I can say that Gail Z. Martin's book will reward your time and effort put in to read it and implement it.

For experienced marketers/business owners, the book may seem to take awhile getting up to speed. Old and basic marketing concepts such as performing a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis, defining your unique value, and telling your authentic story take up nearly the entire first half of the book -- and I found myself skimming impatiently through it to get to the "good stuff." For those with less of a business orientation, however, I could see how reading about these fundamentals could be useful.

Deeper into the book, Martin delivers when she outlines how to apply traditional marketing principles to some of the newer online tools out there. Just a few of the gems of advice from the book:

* Invite 30 people per day to join you on social networks
* Jump on breaking news stories -- early -- to blog your way to upper search engine rankings
* Create themed series for your YouTube channels

For tactics and tricks specific to individual social networks, you might want to grab a book that zeroes in on each one. But "30 Days to Social Media Success" provides a great overview of the disciplined mindset (as well as actionable steps) necessary to succeed using the social web.

Do not be fooled by the title. This book actively educates the reader about social media and how to help improve their business through exercises that uniquely tie in the Rule of 30 for a creative twist, but the book seemed to give better advice for overall marketing than how to actually use the social media sites.

This book is targeted towards small business owners, whether they are working out of their home, or have a small local business.

The author begins by taking the reader back to the beginning of their marketing platform to better understand their goals as a sales person, whether or not their goals match the messages they are sending through their advertisements, and whether or not they are marketing to the right target market. The book uses exercises to help the reader determine their right goals, marketing messages, and target audiences. After that the author dives right into describing the social media sites, but fails to actually explain how to properly use the social media.

Overall, this is a book that I think any small business owner could benefit from reading, but don't read expecting to learn how to use social media to the best of your ability.

Whether you are a novice or experienced with social media, you will find Gail Z Martin's book a highly useful tool for increasing your business exposure. Although experienced with the social media sites, I found myself eagerly highlighting the online marketing strategies laid out. The information is written in a logical order and easy to understand for implementation. 30 Days to Social Media Success is a very important read for those serious about building their business.
