Before reading the book, I had thought it would explain how you can maintain a strong presence for your business in only 60 minutes a day, but that's not quite what it's about. It is actually a sixteen-week program, taking you from planning to implementation and evaluating your results. Every day has an assigned task which should take approximately one hour to complete, making it ideal for readers who prefer a practical, structured approach to learning.

The "course outline" is as follows:

Month 1: Create the Plan and Get Started
Month 2: Establish Corporate Presence with Pages and Groups
Month 3: Create Demand with Facebook Ads
Month 4: Advanced Tactics and Campaign Integration

There is a wealth of valuable information in this volume, much of which is not limited to Facebook but is relevant to any form of social media marketing. It's next to impossible to talk about any component of social media in isolation, because they all work together so closely.

Facebook changes so often that no one can know for sure what the future will hold, so the Appendix containing the opinions of six industry experts on "The Future of Facebook" was particularly fascinating. It is clear that social media in general, and Facebook in particular, are going to continue to play a major role in people's lives, so it's going to become increasingly important for businesses to get involved if they don't want to get left behind.

Whether or not you choose to follow the daily steps, this book is an excellent guide for anyone wanting a better understanding of how Facebook works and how they can leverage it to promote their business.

Any user of Facebook needs this book. If you are a small business owner or active online promoting your brand it really helps to have a guide and a shortcut to being effective online.

I first met Mari Smith online as I was getting my profile and fan pages up and operating.

Since then I found that she is THE leader in anything Facebook and is accessible from her fan page to help with any updates or questions that might come up.

What I liked about Facebook Marketing An Hour a Day is that it gives you a background on Facebook, defines it, and then helps guide you into developing a strategy and how to measure it.

In addition it also teaches you how to use pages and groups, how to use ads, and advanced tactics--so it is great for the average user or the small business person or online marketing teams.

I selected the Kindle edition because of the rapidly changing nature of social media so I could get it right away.

Things in social media change so fast (just like Facebook's new revamps over the last two weeks) so I do encourage you to download and begin using it right away.

This book is well worth the investment--go get it now and then go find MariSmith on Facebook!

I heard one of the authors give an awesome presentation at a conference last year, so I was eagerly awaiting this book. Fortunately it didn't disappoint! Lots of great specific, actionable how-to instructions -- just what I need to get my Facebook marketing going. In fact, the book is better than many courses I've bought from other marketing experts for $500+ (and some of those were pretty good too). Highly recommended.

I started reading Mari Smith and Chris Treadaway's new book, Facebook Marketing: An Hour a Day and it is slow going.

It is NOT slow reading because it is poorly written or dull.

I'm reading it slowly because I am literally using up my yellow highlighter marking important passages. Then I have to pause to write little margin notes. And then of course I must put those little sticker bookmarks on pages I know I'll want to refer back to again and again.

Not to mention that I have to jot down ideas gleaned from Smith and Treadway in a little notebook I keep with me at all times.

And all that doesn't include the time I spend being envious of these two and their brilliant ideas. I just wish I had written this book instead.

Treadaway and Smith have written that rare book that balances in-depth, expert advice without leaving the newbe behind in the dust. It is just packed with actionable ideas any marketer can use to take advantage of the breathtaking potential of Facebook to promote their business.

Facebook is so hot right now that businesses are jumping in without a plan or clue. This book is the kind of tool you need to dig in and create a strategy and master the technical stuff that can create so much frustration for the business owner already strapped for time.

The book will also help marketers demonstrate to CEOs and department heads reluctant to explore Facebook and other social media platforms how to treat Facebook as in integrated part of the marketing whole.

Books related to social media marketing keep coming out. The truth is that even if Internet and social media marketing aren't new, the information needs for marketing managers are huge: the more they read, the faster they will get the immersion feel enabling them to move from a tactical use of social media to a strategic management of social media campaigns.

Not all books are equally valuable, though. Count Facebook Marketing by Chris Treadaway (@ctreada) and Mari Smith (@MariSmith) among the great ones. Unpretentious and practical, it takes you by the hand and shows you how Facebook can work for you, as an individual with a personal practice, or as a social "editor-in-chief" for your company. Even if you believe that you already "know" a lot, read this book as it's quite possible that you might not yet be taking full advantage of what you "know."

The first chapter is one of the simplest and best written short history of Internet Marketing I have seen in a while; it summarizes how customer targeting is quickly evolving towards building up coherent sets of motivated and intention-driven social commerce addressees, and takes you to the second chapter and what Facebook is: a platform that brings people to real or virtual places or stores based on who they are, what they like, or what they are looking for. In other words, people who have described themselves in their own terms. Based on this understanding of the potential of Facebook as a sales and marketing platform, you are able to define your "social media product," because "the social media presence is, in effect, an interactive online product." Promoting or positioning this "product" requires a structured view of your social media project, so start with the beginning: Create a campaign.
