Format: Paperback
Length: 6:31 Mins
While my video review points out the major advantages this book provides for readers, let's underscore here too the authors' assurance that "Although our wonderful brains translate marks and squiggles into words, it doesn't come as naturally to the mind as processing images."

"Images," the authors emphasize, "act like shortcuts to the brain: we are visual creatures, and we are programmed to react to visuals more than to words."

Again: "Research indicates that consumer interest in visual content isn't necessarily just a preference; it's actually easier and faster for humans to process." So "the right picture can go further than just telling your story visually; it can make you feel emotions, evoke memories, and even make you act differently."

The subtitle captures accurately what Walter and Gioglio accomplish with this book: showing "How to Use Visuals, Videos, and Social Media to Market Your Brand."

Order their book today, apply the strategies and tips, and maximize the vast power of the social media.

Please note: Even though McGraw-Hill invited me to review this book, that invitation had no impact on how I judged the content. In fact, I would refuse to post a review of any book if the author or publisher expected automatically favorable rating.

Over the past two years, I have read numerous books about Social Media strategy and implementation, so I immediately recognized a masterpiece when I saw it.
The other tbooks were written by people who had a huge amount of knowledge but no visual design skill which, as it turns out , is the Holy Grail when it comes to Social Media success.
This book is visually stunning and packed with visual information. The authors don't just talk the talk, they unequivocally walk the walk.
It's only because I read all of the other books that I am able to truly appreciate the genius of this book. So now I can save you a huge amount of time and effort by saying "If you have even the slightest understanding of the importance of Social Media to your future business success, order this book now."
Choose the fastest delivery method and plan to take a couple of hours to read and be amazed.
To be fair to the other authors that I read, some of the methods described in this book were unavailable only a few months ago but, never the less, "The Power Of Visual Storytelling" stands head and shoulders above any other Social Media "How To" book that I have encountered.
I was fortunate to have had access to a pre-release version and when the actual printed copy arrived, my expectations were not only met, they were exceeded.
Follow the advice in this book and you will see immediate results.
Stop reading this review and order the book NOW, you will not be disappointed. I only wish I could give it 6 stars!!

This is great read on the topic of visual marketing. It is only fitting that a video review tells the story of this epic book by Ekaterina Walter and Jessica Gioglio. A tremendous resource for today's business storytellers leveraging visual marketing that will resonate with their target audience. An awesome book full of stats, tips and strategic guidelines to be an effective visual storyteller.

Format: Kindle Edition
If you’re looking for a book that will give you inspiration for creating a visually based marketing campaign using a wide variety of social media platforms, this is your book. It covers the evolution of visual storytelling on the Internet, the top social media platforms that make the most of visual media, and how to develop a strategic visual marketing plan.

This book is easy to read and easy to use. There are lots of visuals that help illustrate point, bring your attention to key details and set aside statistical information. This is a great resource for social media professionals who need to communicate the importance of various platforms to their clients.

The only "downside" to this book was that most of the case studies are from big companies like Dunkin’ Donuts, Intel and The World Bank — organizations that can afford to hire a team to work on their social media. I would have liked to see a few more examples from small businesses and, perhaps, a solo-preneur or two. That said, these examples still provide inspiration for smaller organizations.

Format: Paperback
I heard Ekaterina speak on visual storytelling at Social Media Marketing World and had to snap up her book as a reference and to share with others who were unable to attend the conference. At 221 pages, it's a quick read, but crammed full of useful resource references and inspirational examples of visual storytelling at its finest. The Visual Storytelling on Social Networks section alone is worth the price of the book. Covering everything from YouTube to twitter to SlideShare, the book includes facts and figures to help you make the business case for expanding into specific social channels, and specific tips on what works well, channel by channel. If you're looking for a visual content book to help you be more effective in creating visual content, this is a must-read.

Format: Paperback
The human brain pro­cesses visuals 60,000x faster than text. Web posts with visuals drive 180% more engagement and viewers spend 100% more time on web pages with videos. This useful book is a great find for anyone trying to capture share of mind in a noisy world. The authors take us through strategies, case studies and great cheat sheets packed with tips and social tools. It is a jungle out there and if you want to figure out how to get your target audience to pay attention, you have to learn how to paint a pretty picture and tell a compelling story.
