Thankfully, this does not just describe how social media works, but actually describes how it fits with proper marketing.
The first 7 chapters go over some vital points for marketing preparation, the next 8 have some detailed analysis on social media sites(Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.), and the rest of the chapters cover various topics that are good to know.
"30 Days" does a great job of describing how careful and thorough analysis is the key to successfully marketing in any way, not just through social media. Combine that with a dynamic review and perspective of social media sites, and this book still has a surprising amount of relevance without feeling dated.
The type of reader this book is intended for is somewhat vague, and the second half of the book drags on at times, but this is a solid book for anyone looking to refresh their memory since taking Intro to Marketing.
-Good refresher on marketing basics.
-Interesting perspectives on approaching social media.
-Reading a book this short should not take thirty days.
-The second half of the book is a bit boring and redundant.
I don't have my own business but I know someone who is about to start one up and I am going to pass this book along to her, as soon as I get finished writing a book report on it for my social media class.
The book guides you step by step on how you can improve your social media websites to better suit your business. Martin gets you to think by giving you examples needed to understand what she is discussing, then at the end of each chapter she has an exercise to help you think more about your business and start engaging the practices in your own life.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars because the small chapters, easy to understand, sets you up for success using "baby steps", and has exercises to get you to engage in helping your business. However, I don't give it a 5 because the marketing practices are generic, but good for someone who doesn't have a business degree.
This book is targeted towards small business owners, whether they are working out of their home, or have a small local business.
The author begins by taking the reader back to the beginning of their marketing platform to better understand their goals as a sales person, whether or not their goals match the messages they are sending through their advertisements, and whether or not they are marketing to the right target market. The book uses exercises to help the reader determine their right goals, marketing messages, and target audiences. After that the author dives right into describing the social media sites, but fails to actually explain how to properly use the social media.
Overall, this is a book that I think any small business owner could benefit from reading, but don't read expecting to learn how to use social media to the best of your ability.
