Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Brand Advocates are your most loyal, passionate, and engaged customers, and your best marketers. They don't just buy your products—they sell your products for you. Brand Advocates tweet, blog, and Yelp about you; they praise you with five-star reviews on Amazon and TripAdvisor; they talk you up in social networks, online communities, and over coffee; and they defend you from detractors. Do you know who your Brand Advocates are? Are you systematically leveraging them to get more brand and product recommendations as well as drive sales? If you're not, you're missing the most powerful opportunity to turn likes into leads and social media into sales.

Brand Advocates teaches you how to turn your enthusiastic customers into a powerful and sustainable marketing force. Through a step-by-step playbook and real-world examples, you'll learn exactly what it takes to build and activate your Advocate Army, from identifying your Advocates to energizing them and tracking results. By following this strategic and sustainable approach, you'll soon be able to:

  • Discover who your Brand Advocates are and what makes these influential customers tick
  • Create and grow your Advocate Army by continuously identifying Advocates on digital, social, and mobile channels
  • Energize and mobilize your Advocate Army to recommend your brand and products, boost sales, and defend you from social media ambushes
  • Reward your Advocates by giving them what they crave most
  • Measure results and ROI from advocacy programs

Every company in the world—including yours!—has Brand Advocates. Get more value from your social media marketing and transform your company by unleashing the most powerful marketing force you have. Your Advocate Army is ready and waiting to build your brand and business.

It was a disappointing read, sadly. The first half seemed to be a collection of disorganized stories with the occasional useful anecdote chucked in. The latter half contained some meaty information. Section Four: The Advocate Marketing Playbook was really useful. By the time I reached it, though, I was annoyed at how Fuggetta took so long to get to the meaty stuff.

It *may* be useful to you. However, just be aware that you may need to skip ahead to get to useful information.

There is no better marketing that users who love products to tell their friends about those products.

Most social media books leave me cold. Not this one. Brand Advocates is clearly-written, entertaining, and informative. I love the profiles of Brand Advocates like Starbucks Melody and Justin Dorfman, the CDW Advocate. Really brings the topic to life. Since I'm in the entertainment field, I would have liked some examples from the entertainment industry. But since the process of turning Advocates into a marketing force works across multiple industries that wasn't a big concern for me. I highly recommend this book.

Mr. Fuggetta does a great job of distilling advocates and explaining why an advocacy program is so critical to the success for marketing in our new world. If you are trying to convince your boss to let you test out an advocacy program, give them this book! Or, if you are a marketer tasks with figuring out that "social thing", I'd suggest you read this yourself.

(Disclosure: I am a client of Rob's company, Zuberance, so I received a free copy of this book. But, that didn't impact my review.)

Loved this book! It's a quick read because the author mixes up stories about actual brand advocates, marketers, and a ton of really impressive case studies for brands that you might not think people love to recommend. The book not only helped me understand all the things that advocates will do for a brand, but also clearly showed how to start a brand advocate program- step by step. I passed it on to a colleague and I'm looking forward to see if she thought it was as great as I did!

Rob Fuggetta's book is a real eye-opener for marketers. As the profession struggles to find meaning in an increasingly competitive world "Brand Advocates" helps marketers discover, utilize, and benefit from their most underutilized asset- those customers who are raving fans.

An easy to read, insightful book chock full of real examples, I read this book cover to cover.
