For anyone who has read any of Shiv Singh or Stephanie Diamond's phenomenal books, you are in for a treat with "Social Media Marketing for Dummies." It clearly instructs beginners how to harness the power of social media to get their message out to their target audiences. But this book also includes a wealth of information that will benefit even the most experienced Internet marketers. You'll learn how to choose the right social media platforms for your message, how to create social media campaigns, how to find your voice, and much more. For those who are visual learners, you'll appreciate numerous screen shots of actual social media sites. I first read through the book to get a feel of the concepts that were presented. Now I'm going to carefully reread the book and think how I will apply these invaluable concepts to my own social media marketing. For another great book about Internet marketing, be sure to read Stephanie Diamond's "Web Marketing for Small Businesses." In the short time this book has been out, it's already a classic. Using both of these books, you'll be light years ahead of your competition.

Social Media is constantly updating and changing, so I should have suspected that helpful information would not come from a book. I was interested in basic concepts which I did find helpful, but the links and sample screen photos were all out of date. Very frustrating.

I guess I'm not as much of a dummy as I thought I was. I did learn a few things, though.

Can always count on the material to meet the needs of a dummy like myself. I am still not a marketing wiz but I did receive what I expected when ordering a book from Dummies.
