Go Dummies Go! I love Dummies! Dummies books rule!

I always look forward to the latest installment of the such-and-such for dummies books, so I eagerly awaited my Amazon.com pre-order of Jan Zimmerman's and Doug Sahlin's Social Media Marketing (all-in-one) for Dummies. Even better it proclaimed it was eight books in one. The book is fantastic, even if it does suffer from the usual forest-vs-trees issue. It is much more a "trees" book with lots of details on each social media venue, but still a great book.

By "trees" I mean it gives you the details of each social media marketing venue: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Blogs, etc. For each, the authors do a nice job of overviewing the venue, and explaining the basic steps of how to create an account, what you can do with it, etc. It's a great survey of the entire Social Media Universe. Importantly, it is a critical, skeptical, ROI point of view vs. many of the simple cheerleading or laundry list books on Social Media out there. I really liked that.

By "forest," however, I mean the big picture / strategy of Social Media. The book DOES have information on building a Social Media Marketing plan and DOES have some useful case studies, but there is often just too much text and too many details. I teach Social Media Marketing (online and in San Francisco), and I have experienced that my students are just overwhelmed with the details. Less is often more, as they say, and this book could have used a re-write on the chapters on making a social media marketing plan. Missing in particular is a clear explanation of which social media venue fits which business need best.

That said, if you combine this detailed book, with some "higher level" marketing strategy...

This book is not for dummies! It presupposes that the reader has working knowledge of the Internet and social media. It is not an introduction to social media. If you don't have an understanding of Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, this is not the book to start with. The book really covers all aspects of social media marketing very cearly and in detail, almost too much detail. I found it almost overwhelming at times; because it is so dense with information it is a slow read, not a book you can read in one sitting. It is divided into very logical sections so if you aren't interested in Twitter you can skip the section on Twitter and focus on Facebook, or LinkedIn. The book is extremely well and clearly written with none of the goofiness sometimes found in the "Dummies" series. All in all I think it is an excellent resource and reference to which I will refer again and again.

This book is all theory and meant for someone with an IT degree or a philosophy degree or someone who works is the IT department for a company that employs more than 100 people. I was shocked that it was a for "dummies" book. The book is long on theory, NONE on "how to." The FEW bits of useful information are scattered about and you have to read and read boring computer philosophy to find them. I was expecting: do this, then do this then do this. Or this is how you start face book, then you add twitter, this is how you make them and other sites work together as a marketing plan. It is not a practical guide to setting up a marketing plan, it is the philosophy in a larger corporate environment on social media marketing. If you are a "mom and pop" company, or a realtor or other service provider looking to use social media tools this is not the book for you. The only think I can say for the other reviewers, whom I relied on when I purchased this book, is that they must work for IBM or HP as I am fairly tech savvy and I thought the book was a complete waste of money. I didn't even give it to goodwill for fear of someone paying 1.00 for it and getting ripped off. I put it into the recycle bin where maybe it will get recycled into something practical and useful in its next life.

Do you know your way around Facebook? Or at least `think' you do? How about Twitter? This book has proven an excellent tool for all things viral marketing.

Today's tech-savvy market demands constant contact from their PCs to the cell-phones. Social Media marketing is the new (necessary) marketing tool. Especially if you're a small business, website looking for traffic, or just have a neat dog walking service and want to make sure your neighbors know.

This book covers the A-Z from setting up simple facebook accounts to Search Engine Optimization (Making sure your site pops up first on Google). It has all the tips and tricks any startup needs, all told in the easy-to-follow "dummies" format.

Follow this book and with a little time and a little luck, your sites new traffic will pay for itself!
