From the Back Cover
New York Times bestselling author and social media expert Gary Vaynerchuk shares hard-won advice on how to connect with customers and beat the competition.
When managers, marketers, and small business owners outline their social media strategies, they plan for the "right hook"—their next campaign that will produce profits. Even companies committed to "jabbing"—creating content for consumers and engaging with customers to build relationships—still desperately want to land the powerful, bruising swing that will knock out their opponents or their customers' resistance in one tooth-shattering, killer blow. Right hooks, after all, convert traffic to sales. They easily show results and return on investment. Except when they don't.
In the same passionate, streetwise style his readers have come to expect, Vaynerchuk is on a mission to strengthen marketers' right hooks by changing the way they fight to make their consumers happy, and ultimately to compete. Thanks to the massive change in and proliferation of social media platforms in the last four years, the winning combination of jabs and right hooks is different now. Communication is still key, but context matters more than ever. It's not just about developing high-quality content; it's also about developing high-quality content that's perfectly adapted to specific social media platforms and mobile devices. It's about truly engaging with customers, not by shouting at them over social media but by using new narrative forms particular to each different media platform—especially, though not exclusively, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Tumblr. Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook is a blueprint to social media marketing strategies that really work.

There are some issues from a B2B marketing perspective. Gary classifies LinkedIn and Google+ as emerging networks, and questions the strength of Google+. Any B2B company not on LinkedIn right now needs to get on board ASAP. This is the professionals' social network. There are plenty of people on G+, and it is a critical network for content creators to get their information indexed by Google.
Some of the chapters were loaded with case studies. One or two are good but after that they lose their effect, imo. What I would have liked to see instead was example(s) of a business who is effectively utilizing all or some of the social media platforms.
I would have liked to see more text devoted to LinkedIN and Google+. I think both are worthy of their own chapter. LinkedIN is unique as a way to recruit for companies and for individuals to network and brand themselves. Google+, while not embraced by the public, is unique since its Google. Companies can do some cool things with Google+ and Youtube.
Overall it's a good book and worth reading.
