You can find plenty of books about social media marketing by people who don't do much of it. What makes Stand Out such a stand out is that the author not only brings years of field experience to the topic but also insight gleaned from hundreds of customer experiences.

This book is worth its cover price for chapter 4 alone. It it, Lewis sets out practical guidelines for getting the most out of social media interactions based upon real data from real campaigns. Lewis has the benefit of being able to tap into the knowledge that huge brands like Major League Baseball have gained from analyzing millions of customer reactions, and some of the insights are fascinating. For example:

--People post more content to social channels on Friday than any other day of the week, but Thursdays have significantly higher interaction rates.

--Nearly 100% of interactions around content posted to Facebook and Twitter occurs during the first 10 days, but only 34% of interactions around YouTube and WordPress content happens during that time. This means that content posted to these channels should be created differently depending on when people are most likely to discover it.

--Content published to three or more social channels generates about 30% more engagement than content posted to a single social channel.

In addition to actionable statistics like these, Lewis offers practical advice buttressed by concrete examples. For example, "Content should be focused on the needs of your prospects and customers - not on you, your company or your product." While experienced social marketers may think this advice is obvious, it's stunning how few marketers think this way.

Format: Paperback
Stand Out Social Marketing is a next-level social marketing book had to address what will come next after all the social media best practices are established and commonly followed. Stand Out Social Marketing accomplishes this by delivering on the promise of social media: how to find the data most important to you, how to get your audience to generate additional meaningful data, and how to use that data to accomplish an ROI related goal. This is what we were told social media was when it first started, but so far it has been another broadcast channel, like email or RSS (a very effective broadcast channel, but a channel nonetheless). Given the data that is now available to marketers at any level, social media can and should be so much more. This book delivers on that promise.

Stand Out Social Marketing is not `social media in 10 easy steps!' It is not social marketing for dummies. It is social marketing for social marketers. And for any social marketers who are ready to take the next step I suggest you pick up Stand Out Social Marketing.

Mike Lewis is a rare, smart and talented marketer - there are many great marketers, but few of them have the gift of distilling their years of wisdom into a great book that all marketers need to read. In a time when one may think that all that can be said about how to market brands via social media has been said, Mike published Stand-out Social Marketing - an personal, yet powerful tale of what it takes to stand out, do like most brands do, and win with social. Must-read if you are serious about social marketing.

"Standing out" is more important than ever, as every company and organization on the planet starts adding to the social media noise. But the key strategic point of this book is that you stand out NOT by shouting louder than everyone else. My favorite chapter is titled `Stand Out by Paying Attention". It's all about listening to your community, and more than that, operationalizing the listening so you can do it to achieve business results. This books stands out - buy it.

As anyone who looks at the Web knows the social media space has gained legitimacy and investments in social media marketing continue to rise every year. That is the good news. The difficulty that this book addresses is how to stand out in a crowded field. We are generating more content every year or two that ever before and much of this is through social media.

While you can buy Twitter followers, and Facebook likes, as well as use other tricks and short cuts for some measures of impact, the meaningful measures cannot be faked but are based on creating good content and promoting it well. You need both sides of that equation and this book is a good primer to be successful at both.

You need to be seen as unique. Then if you are successful, expect to be copied so you need to unique again. You need to be in a constant state of innovation. Mike offers the Levis Friends Facebook Store as an example. Once you enter this online store you get a personalized shopping experience based on the likes and recommendations of friends. They placed a Like button next to the SKU for each item in the store to encourage participation. It is a good idea and I can see how this would work for Facebook addicts. I can imagine that many of the people who flock to Facebook would want to know what jeans their friends like. Personally, I tend to look for bargains but then I also do not spend much time in Facebook. But then 350 million suffer from "Facebook addiction."

Time Magazine named "you" as the person of the year in 2007 put a mirror on the cover. These types of tactics will appeal to those interested in the social mirror. I have to admit that while clothes may not be where I focus, I am intrigued by what people do think in areas of interest to me such as social media or even art.
