Social media can be overwhelming and we don't need everything. This seemed to be a good way to match social media execution with what my product needed for good marketing. Next step? Buy one and get started.

This was a good read. Also, it was nice to get a feel for the tone of some of the authors because now I know which book I will buy and which one I will not. It's all pretty high level too.

Good summary if you have already read the books. No replacement for the book, but a good review for overall concept.

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent Price August 12, 2012

If you are interested in using the internet for marketing, and you should be, this book may put you on to some pretty good resources. It is more an advertisement than a reader, and so no topic is really complete.

However, the emphasis is on using the internet to communicate and respond to prospects and customers, not with just web versions of what was done in print, but with an awareness of how the web-customer uses and responds to the web. For instance, attention and interest are large components of a print appeal, but those who have found your web site are already interested and you have their attention. What remains is to communicate substance.

Some of the books sampled may well help you do this well. But this book will not do the trick. It will only help you select one or more of the books sampled to get the whole picture. Of course, this is what a sampler does, and this one does it well. So, why two stars? Simply because it is a big free advertisement, yet takes a fair amount of time to go through -- and you still have to look inside the individual books to make a buying decision.
