Just what I needed for my business!
on June 28, 2010
I own a small business that relies on referral & word of mouth. I'm a geek but personally have stayed away from all social networking sites. About 4 months ago I gave in & decided the biz needs to be on the social sites, problem is I have no clue what I'm doing there. My Facebook Fan page has had no hits in 3 months but my mom.
This book is not only my new bible for my business social stuff but explains the bigger picture in a way that allows you to easily grasp the smaller details & be able to make connections for yourself. So many books just give the directions with no oversight of how it works on the inside both technically & personally.
I also appreciate the writing. It's fun & doesn't bog down seeing that this subject could be a snore. I like seeing her examples and the fact that they really worked for her makes me more willing to drink the coolaid. She's great at telling you an entertaining story about her that actually explains what she just talked about.
The other thing I appreciated was the undertone of ethics & etiquette throughout. It was very clear on do's & don'ts so I don't look like a tool to my customers.
The best thing I got out of this book was how to view "my friends" & how to treat them. Made me realize that my social pages are not webpages but something much deeper that demands a different attitude to be successful.
Thanks Amber! (if you haven't seen her promo video for the book, do it. Parody on Dexter & its great!)
