A lot has been written about leveraging social media and we have been conditioned to believe it’s easy, and it just happens. I haven’t found a book that clearly tells you how to leverage social media to generate leadsuntil now. Dan and Kim show you how to get a strong ROI, increased sales, and explain why you shouldn’t worry about metrics that don’t matter: likes” and comments.”
David H. Mattson, CEO and president of Sandler Training
This book is so valuable that I’ve handed it to my staff to implement its techniques. Kim and Dan lay out exact methods with case studies on how they got the results, which are so often held close to the chest of marketers. They teach you how to convert cold leads to paying customers, and the exact metrics of options and lifetime value of a customer.
Dr. Jeremy Weisz, founder of InspiredInsider
I'm usually a speed reader who can finish a book in a couple hours, but this book is so helpful that I savored it and read it slowly. I freakin' love how Dan puts down social media because he's voicing the issues that kept me from buying ads there. And I learned a lot from seeing how Kim's process can lead to the measurable results that Dan demands.

However this might not have been as disappointing had the book provided any real, useful strategies for social media marketing. Which, in my opinion, it does not. First of all, the title is misleading. This book's main and only focus is Facebook paid advertisements. It does not cover any other major social media platform, in fact, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest get only an honorable mention of about 3 sentences each.
Second, one of Dan's only contributions to the book is a chapter on printed newsletter campaigns. I trust when he says that regular mail newsletters are still an effective form of marketing. However, i don't think it should belong in a book about social media.
I have other objections to this book but instead of listing them all here i will recommend a couple of books that actually hit the mark on how to navigate and make money from social media - "Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook" by Gary Vaynerchuk and "Platform" by Michael Hyatt. Both give solid, concrete, specific advice on how to successfully market in the social media jungle. Unlike this book which is mostly fluff and little substance.
PS. This really is a minor thing but I found the twittable quotes after each chapter annoying. Normally i would just ignore them but, in his own admission, Dan does not and would not use twitter, so they made the whole book feel even more inauthentic.
Dan is far from a social media fan. As Kim said, the guy still uses a fax machine. But he likes measurable results -- so do I. So the book is about how Kim's process can get measurable results for someone like Dan.
To do that, the book gives a solid framework and clear tactics.
Thankfully, Dan & Kim show the most intelligent, smart use of social media marketing. Their book is specific, insightful and very valuable from both strategic and tactical standpoints; I'll implement what I'm learning and continue to grow our company. One of the best business books of the year. Because it clears up misconceptions about social media usage by entrepreneurs and provides a more realistic, sales/results-driven strategy that's actually valuable and useful. Thanks, Dan -- I needed guidance in this unfamiliar territory, and you and Kim came through. Your clarity is appreciated, and will help our continued biz growth. Buy this book now, it's useful.
To massive profits,
p.s. Dan, your business books are the best marketing resource in the world, I've done well in sales due largely to implementing what I've learned from you this past 15+ years. A profound thank-you. Whenever a new resource from Dan comes out, I "put everything on hold" til I've read/watched it. I re-read Dan's books regularly, and implement. What you teach works, and is "correct thinking" for success.
Of course anything Dan writes is AMAZING and his principles have truly transformed my life and business. The combination of these two makes this a must read for anyone in business that even thinks about using social media in business.
There is a lot of hype, tricks and gimmicks about Social Media – and precisely because of that, 99% of the people are doing it wrong.
But this book is about hard work, strategy, and concrete results (read “real money”). Do yourself a favor, get this book, and do it right.
Way to go Dan & Kim.
