This is the book on Facebook that many marketers have been waiting for.

Most books on Facebook delve deeply into the community and social aspects but don't really cover the different beast that is Facebook Advertising. While you need to understand how to address and network with the Facebook community in order to market to them, to run any kind of Facebook Advertising campaign you really need in-depth information on how to set it up and effectively make use of all the various targeting options. This book provides just that.

It goes deep into all the different ways to target and create your ads and how to optimize your campaigns for maximum performance. It covers everything about using the Facebook Ads Manager (not a very intuitive system) and also gives invaluable information on various segments you should target depending on the audience demographic you are trying to reach. The real key to Facebook Advertising is utilizing the demographic targeting capabilities to your best advantage, and this book explains that fully, with checklists and step-by-step guides that you can utilize immediately.

Marty covers all this in his own inimitable, yet accessible style, providing an easy read yet an invaluable reference tool. I've heard him speak at many conferences over the years and he's always engaging, yet thought provoking, guaranteed to take a concept by the horns and make you think of it in a different way. His written style is the same way and your approach to Facebook Advertising will never be the same.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I got this book, thinking it might be helpful in finding some easy ways to help my wife promote her modest home business. Shows how little I understand about Facebook. This book is really meant for serious business folks who are looking to maximize a Facebook presense and are willing to spend for it.

I'll be honest, after getting through a chunk of the book, there just wasn't much reason to go on, because it was not what I needed. BUT, that being said, the book is excellent at what it exists for and I would still very much recommend for the right audience. This is not a "Facebook advertising for Dummies" book...it is detailed, sometimes a little technical and not a super fast read. You need to be serious about using Facebook advertising. If you are, you'll find the book useful. It even comes with a few modest coupons to help you get started with some of the services discussed in the book. This does make one wonder how "objective" the author is...but there wasn't anything so overtly skewed that the book loses credibility.

Sorry I can't give you more details. I just bought it expecting one thing and really got another...totally my fault.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The first edition of this book was published in August 2011. I read it in October and some of the system changes Facebook implemented a few weeks ago have already outdated some of the material. The author references the fast paced nature of Facebook's evolution many times and writes about some of the legal uncertainties advertisers face in the future of targeted online marketing. This indicates that many updates and editions of this book will be released, let the buyer be aware of this and make certian that your are getting as current information as possible. Having said that, there is also some very timeless, relevant and sound advertising/marketing knowledge to be gleaned from this book.

This would be an overwhelming book to a person in a small start up. On the positive side the author's experience is an excellent resource of examples and how to apply market knowledge to advertising campaigns. However, it is a lot of information to digest for a beginner or inexperienced advertiser. It would be a bit like drinking from a fire-hose and probably bring a beginner to a standstill.

I would have also liked to have seen the information organized better. I like to have books like this available as quick references that I can pull off the shelf and quickly look up and specific area, but it is just not set up that way. On the other hand there is a wealth of great information here, some in didactic principle and some in the form of (real and fictitious) examples.

Bottom line; I would recommend this book for people with 'some experience' to 'expert marketers and advertisers' there are nuggets in this book that nearly anyone can learn from.

If you're a new start up or a mom & pop shop be aware that this could be information overload.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the most detailed books I have read on Facebook advertising to date. The author does a great job of delivering actionable insights that marketers can take back to their ad campaigns. Believe it or not for me the most beneficial part of this book was what was in back (albeit now a little less relevant since Facebook rolled out interest group targeting options recently). He basically outlined groups of interests for you so you can simply copy and paste them into your campaign. The amount of time this saves you is unbelievable.

You couldn't pay anyone really to get the interest group buckets he has put together for you. That alone makes this book a steal of a deal IMO. Really satisfied with the purchase and have no problems giving it a 5 star review.
