Format: Paperback
Over four hundred million people have accounts on Facebook. Thousands, if not millions, of tweets are sent each day. Personal web sites are common. With all this traffic flying over the Internet, it's easy to see why some photographers believe that there has to be a way to turn all these electronics signals into dollars by selling their images online. "The Linked Photographers' Guide to Online Marketing and Social Media" attempts to tell photographers how to do this.

After a brief introduction to social networking on the Internet, the authors discuss some fundamentals of social network marketing, including preparation of a plan, branding, creation of websites and blogs, search engine optimization and analytics, and the use of ads. The third part of the book describes most of the major social media sites and the authors' suggestions on how to use them. The book concludes with descriptions of how the authors and other photographers have used social networking for marketing.

My first impression of the book was that it seemed rather general and did not provide enough specifics on how to use particular social media sites. Then, when I went on line with the book in hand, I found that the authors had provided more information than I noticed at first. For example, while I was familiar with Google analytics, which allow you to examine the nature of the traffic to your website (presumably so that you can improve your marketing), I was unaware that Facebook also provided its own analytics until the book led me to them. On the other hand, you won't learn how to design a good website in this book.

Even though I recommend this book for those interested in online marketing, I do have some quibbles.

Online marketing and Social Media needs to be an integral part of all businesses today but the question that many businesses ask themselves is "How do I get started?" There are so many books written about Social Media and Internet Marketing that it is hard to decide which one to select. If you are just getting started in this Web 2.0 arena, I would suggest you pick up Lindsay Adler and Rosh Sillars' book The Linked Photographers' Guide to Online Marketing and Social Media.

Don't let the title "The Linked Photographer" deter you from picking up this book and using it as guide to begin your Online Marketing. You could substitute the title with "The Linked Web Designer", "The Linked Entrepreneur", or "The Linked Small Business Owner". Adler and Sillars' niche is photography so of course there are some pages that are more relevant for photographers but so much of the information is relevant for all businesses.
.
If you are just starting out with Social Media and you don't want to buy a lot of books, this one covers how to get started with a blog and explanation of popular Social Media sites -- Twitter, Facebook, 4Square, Flickr, LinkedIn, YouTube -- enough to get you started!

Format: Paperback
It's already been said in some of the other reviews here, but this book is an outstanding reference for all the major social sites. Rosh and Lindsay (two of the best in the field) show you step by step how to sign up for each site, as well as provide tips to get the most out of each site and (in some cases) how to tie them all together if you want to. While it is understandably geared towards photographers, anyone in any field that is even thinking about dipping their toes in the social media waters will be able to benefit from the information in this book. I considered myself pretty knowledgable on this subject already, but found many tips that I could implement myself as well as little known tricks that I wasn't aware of before.

There's even an excellent section on SEO and tips for establishing your website in a manner that will make it attractive to search engines. Also if you're thinking about adding a blog to your site, well that's even covered in here as well - again with many tips to increase its search engine ranking.

I found a recommendation for this book on John Harrington's blog. I have admired John's business acumen for years so I thought this would be a good purchase. I was right. The chapters are well laid out and easy to understand. This book is especially critical for any professional photographer over 40 that has struggled to understand this new, seemingly impersonal, digital networking / marketing age. The covers have been pulled back with this book.

I can't recommend this book enough. I don't understand why there aren't many more reviews on it. Everyone interested in marketing via the social media world needs to read this book. Regardless, of whether you are a photographer or not - this book is your go too resource. The authors obviously did a lot of research in preparing and writing this book. The book is well written, organized and covers everything you need to know. It's easy to comprehend for the social media "beginner". This guide has a wealth of references, websites and more resources. I appreciate all the interviews and real-life experiences of what worked and what did not work for some very successful individuals. I have read this book once and I am already putting into action the author's recommendations and advice. It's working for me. There was so much to learn in this book - I will be reading it a second time. I will most definitely keep it as my go-to reference for marketing and social media.
