This new edition also has updated content on social media, including Pinterest and Instagram, so I picked up on a lot of new tools for my business! I make jewelry and sell vintage items, and found this book to be a good refresher course in online business basics.
I really like the style that this book is written in. It's conversational and friendly and easy to understand. I feel like a friend is talking to me about the details of my business. So, even though I have the first edition of this book, the second one is worth buying. I'm very glad I got it.
