4.0 out of 5 stars YouTube Marketing August 9, 2009
When I received YouTube and Video Marketing: An Hour a Day I dove straight into it. I'm a technical person and have been working with Marketers all my life either to build systems or help in presales engagements. As Marketing has is becoming an online experience more and more, it makes sense to arm oneself with knowledge of the various media options. YupTube, like Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook are become forces to deal with in the online world.

Initially I expected a Step by Step, how-to guide. However as I dug through the book I kept asking myself when I was going to get to the first step. It isn't until halfway in that I started to find some technical aspects of how-to. But even these were not the "here's how" I expected. After completing the book, I initially felt I had not really gotten what I had hoped for.

However, I then reread the book. This time with a marketer's perspective. It reads more like a novel than an procedures manual and has one linger and investigate how others are engaging community and creating effective followings through YouTube Marketing. My opinion changed from a (2) to (4) stars after that insight. If you are looking for a technical step by step of loading videos, skip this book. If however, you want to get a flavor of how ours are being successful marketing with you tube and the elements to build your own campaigns. This is worth the investment and a second reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST-READ for any video marketing professional September 8, 2009
Unlike some other books on the topic of video marketing, Greg Jarboe really GETS it. You can really tell that Jarboe is a PR-professional that knows what he's talking about. Whereas most books describe YouTube's features one-by-one, his advice is solid-as-rock and genuinely helps in mapping out a video marketing strategy and implementing it on a daily basis. I love his quote that "YouTube is the center of your video marketing strategy, but not the circumference". What Jarboe means by this statement is that you should not ignore other video sharing platforms (e.g. Vimeo, Metacafe, MySpace, Blip, etc.), but use YouTube as the core of your video marketing efforts. For one, ability to embed is universal, allowing yourself or other users to spread your content to other social networks.

"Master Story Teller", that's how I would describe Greg Jarboe, someone I've known in the internet marketing and PR world for several years. Now he's pioneered yet another essential digital marketing channel: online video. In YouTube and Video Marketing: An Hour A Day, Greg has assembled a priceless collection of insights, examples and practical tips for companies that want, that need, to understand how to use video marketing to grow their business. You cannot afford to miss this story."

That's the endorsement I gave Greg's new book based on the pre-published preview copy. I got ahold of a copy of the final book summer 2009 and I thought it very timely to provide a more in-depth review.

As an active participant in the marketing industry ([...]), I see a lot of companies trying to get their arms around what will be the "next big thing" in digital marketing and social media. With YouTube the second most popular search engine after Google, video marketing is a big part of that answer.

What's great about the "An Hour A Day" series from Wiley is that each book is structured around practical tips. Sure, there's mention of a dead terrorist Ventriloquist dummy and Paris Hilton in jail, but you'll also find great background information on the emergence of YouTube as the dominant online video hosting service on the front end and "Mysteries of Online Video Revealed" on the back end. In between, chapters 3-10 offer a day by day, week by week plan for developing and executing a video marketing effort over 8 months that any motivated marketer can follow.

The "guts" of the practical tips in this book start with mapping out a video marketing strategy, finding influencers on YouTube and other video services and a clever reversal of the "old map of mass media".

3.0 out of 5 stars the proof is in the proofreading April 20, 2010
Before reading Greg Jarboe's book I already had an in-depth knowledge of YouTube and online video with a number of successful campaigns behind me. I still learned a lot from the book and am the better for it. Mr. Jarboe certainly spent some time compiling data and examples to help illustrate his points. This made the book much more interesting and useful.

So why only three stars? Firstly, as in most books of this kind, it was artificially bloated. The information would have fit on 100 pages or so. Okay, I can accept that. The publisher wants to make some money, fine.

But what really annoyed me was the prevalence of mistakes, as if it was still in draft stage. Certainly this book was not given a final proofreading. For example on page 290 a paragraph begins with, "-marketing for PC Computering from 1988 to 1991 and then worked for William Ziff, Jr. ..." Not only is this not a sentence and makes no sense, it also has nothing to do with the previous paragraph. There seems to be some text missing from this page and the way it stands it is incomprehensible. On the other side of the spectrum, on page 300 a paragraph begins with, "As you learned in Chapter 7 ..." and then a list of three tips follows. On Page 301 this paragraph repeats itself exactly. There are many other instances of this throughout the book. Some people might think I am being petty, but when I spend $20.00 on a book (actually I spent more since I bought it in Europe) I don't think it is expecting too much that someone read over the manuscript before printing thousands of copies. It gives one the feeling that it was a rush job and not carefully written. Ultimately such blatant errors call into question the veracity of the factual content of the book.

In the end I can't say it's a great book, but I would still recommend it. There are not that many books on the subject anyway and this may very well be the best of the lot.
