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.

His lessons on social media, passion, transparency, and reactionary business are not to be missed!

This book (and the class Gary teaches on Skillshare.com about this book) helped me more than I could ever say. I was STOKED when I found out that Gary chose my SM campaign, garnering me the "win" as his JJRHBook/Skillshare class challenge contest winner - winning me a 1-on1 Skype with Gary.
The Skype went great... Gary is a generous and thoughtful person that it was a pleasure to eMeet. I love his book and I respect his dedication to his hustle. I "get" Gary; his drive.
With lots of helpful examples, this book is a "must buy" for anyone seeking to win on Social Media.
PS Gary's gonna buy the Jets. And. we're going public. I'm a firm believer in "speaking those things that are not, as if they were".
“Jab Jab Jab Right Hook” is a true wake up call to let people know that times will continue to change and that you need to be willing to use the platforms and vehicles that are available now in order to knock out your opponents. However, it’s not just using these platforms that’s key but it’s how you use them that’s even more important.
What makes JAB different from other social media publications out there? Gary dissects the way social media/ marketing is used through case studies. He actually examines on-line content posted by major corporations on each of the different social media platforms. It’s amazing to see how some of these companies “float like a butterfly” while others sink like the Titanic. You will discover both the triumphs and epic fails of social media / marketing that will make you think twice before posting content without the context.
There are so many lessons and so much valuable information in this book. This book is a an easy read and it will supply you with the tools you need to get to the next level whether it be promoting your company, branding yourself or just learning the basics of how to tell your story through social media.
Despite my initial concerns, I bought his book because someone I really respect, Marie Forleo interviewed him (http://youtu.be/0Qy9aLqhxcc). That interview convinced me that I needed to read his book and take his advice seriously.
I was afraid that the book was going to tell me that I needed to be on every social media site and be active every single day.
And that's in essence what Gary says in "Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook".
This book helped me realize two things:
(1) It's SUPPOSED to be hard to be effective on social media; but it's NOT impossible.
(2) It can actually be a lot of fun and allows you to be creative…once you learn how to properly engage on each site.
What I love about this book is how Gary gives a blueprint on how to be effective on each social media platform - with not a lot of fluff - by providing real examples of users who had done it right and users who have done it really wrong (my favorite fail is the Arby's Apple Turnover post on Pinterest). He even goes so far as to deconstruct what was done right/wrong and how those wrong posts could be tweaked to make them right.
In short, you get the theory and application in one easy-to-read book.
After reading this book, I feel like I have a good grasp of how to make social media less daunting and more effective as a business owner. And I'm looking forward to experimenting on social media and learning more as I go.
I also understand that things change rapidly on these sites so having a better grasp of each social media platform will help me better recognize and adapt to those changes.
I highly recommend this book…unless you're a competitor. In your case, I would say this book is garbage and keep doing what you're doing!
