"Social Media Examiner gives this book 5 stars." - Social Media Examiner (in reference to 1st edition.)
"She provides detailed instructions for launching social media campaigns and sound guidance for fully leveraging and optimizing search engines, web sites, and blogs. VERDICT: Kabani’s assertion that this is 'the last social media guide you’ll ever need' has merit, as anyone purchasing this also has access to a continually updated online version. Highly recommended for anybody with anything to market onlineincluding him- or herself."
