More About the Author

Writers, editors, speakers, consultants, and online pioneers--we wear so many different hats that it's a good thing we have two heads!

As information professionals we focus on bringing the latest in technology to the attention of everyone who could benefit from knowing how to use it. Our goal is to make sure these new technologies are easy to understand and integrate into our readers' lives. While we're busy researching the latest innovations, we're also meeting people who are using them successfully and gathering their stories. We are, before all else, storytellers.

Look at it this way. It's been a long time since most of us were fascinated by the magic of a microwave oven. But as mundane an appliance as it has become, do you know exactly how it works? Nah, neither do we. We honestly don't care about the technology behind it. We just want to know which buttons to push to make our coffee hot. Likewise, we can't begin to tell you how LinkedIn or YouTube have built their global networks, but now that they have, we can help you use them to make yourself more successful. We can also help you build a successful e-commerce business, if you'd like, whether on eBay, Amazon, or through your own website.

We have worked together for more than 25 years helping people become familiar with emerging technologies. From building a solar home, to convincing your boss to let you telework, to keeping your kids safe online, and earning your livelihood with your own e-commerce business, we've dedicated ourselves to making the online world safer, more accessible, more profitable, and yes, even more fun.

Our 20 books include The Complete Passive Solar Home Book, How to Make Money with YouTube, and How to Find a Job on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and other Social Networks. Our bestselling book is eBay PowerSeller Secrets, with more than 40,000 copies in print. We've also written extensively for the web, a whole different type of writing.


Whether you need an accomplished writer, a top-notch editor, a keynote speaker, or a consultant who can assist you with e-commerce or publishing, we can help. We bring creativity, energy, curiosity, and a passion for quality and results to every project. No project is too big or too small--we've worked with Fortune 500 companies such as McGraw-Hill, AOL/​Time Warner, and individuals working on Internet start-up ideas. If you need a clear understanding of how to make the best use of the world's newest tools and want to be entertained while you learn, you've come to the right place.

Format: Paperback
I thought this book was excellent! Learned alot of little tricks, the LinkedIn part was the most helpful. It was two thirds of the book. I went on vacation, read the book on the plane, updated my profile when I got back, and I have had at least a phone interview every day, sometimes more than one. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a job. There was alot of up to date information which was valuable since the world of social networking is always changing.

Whether you're a college student on the hunt for your first job, a young professional developing your network and personal brand, or a seasoned professional looking for a career change, this book is an absolute must have. Networking and relationship building have always been keys to career success, and Brad does a fantastic job laying out strategies for creating and maintaining your professional online presence.

Bottom line - If you're looking for a job at any stage in your career, this book will give you the best advice about how to connect and engage with people online in ways that will more likely than not lead to a job.

If you have never used LinkedIn, read this book. If you have used LinkedIn for years (as I have), read this book! Go through it with your web browser open to LinkedIn. You will keep looking back and forth between book and screen and finding ways to:

Make your profile more expressive of what you can do, and more attractive to employers.
Expand the network of people that you can rely on for advice, information, and referrals.
Build a reputation for being an expert in your field--and a helpful person whom people want to help in return.
Find companies you want to work for and people there who might be willing to talk with you.
Actually apply for jobs using your LinkedIn profile, which can include a lot more than a printed resume can do.
Receive thoughtful answers to your questions about how to do the job, once you get it.

LinkedIn is the focus of this book (even though it also includes useful chapters on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+) for one simple reason: people are on LinkedIn to talk about doing their jobs, not to watch cute cat videos or share recipes. The authors consider it the single most important online site for job seekers, and yet they are clear about what it can and cannot do. With all their emphasis on professionalism, they still write with a funny, human voice, and give tips on how you can distinguish yourself by doing the same.

It is amazing that a book published in April 2012 can contain any out-of-date information, but social media sites change so rapidly that the printed word cannot keep up. Usually, if the book says a feature is on LinkedIn (or Facebook, etc.), it is still there--you may just have to look in a different menu to find it.

Superb book, very clearly written, on the many ins and outs of using LinkedIn (also Facebook, Twitter, Google+) for networking in the job market, for finding jobs, for giving and receiving recommendations, etc. Very well done!
