LinkedIn Marketing: An Hour a Day

Viveka Von Rosen's marketing expertise shines in this book. Her deep knowledge of LinkedIn will benefit you greatly.

The book is laid out in a step-by-step guide format which makes learning easier. The reader is given daily/weekly activities to do. These hands-on activities increase learning and retention. Viveka also provides downloadable work files. She keeps you focused and on track.

I would love to see people start at the beginning of this book and go step-by-step through the book, even if you have been on LinkedIn for a while. It is possible that you may have missed out on areas you were not aware. This book speaks to various knowledge levels from beginner to advanced.

I am a business educator with a 20 year technology teaching background. This makes me look harder at the layout, clarity and value of a book's content. Can people easily learn from the book? You can learn from Viveka's book, if you discipline yourself to go through the book and perform the tasks that she gives you. She has certainly written it in a format that you can easily learn from.

LinkedIn is a powerful marketing tool, if you know how to use the tool. LinkedIn Marketing An Hour A day will teach you what you need to know to go to the next level and beyond!

I consider it a bonus that this book was written by a female marketer.

GREAT job Viveka.

I love LinkedIn. It's my favorite social site after Twitter. It truly is!

I've been at LinkedIn for almost 6 years, and there's so much to love about this site. The interesting discussions in groups, the Answers forum, the informative business and marketing articles on my homepage, as well as networking with awesome members. LinkedIn a MUST for anyone in business.

Still, Viveka's book totally wowed me. In every chapter she explained features and tweaks I didn't know existed. Her knowledge of LinkedIn and all the possibilities for businesspeople is amazing.

If you only buy one book about LinkedIn this is the one. New members will learn how to navigate the site successfully. Experienced members (like me) will learn how to make their time at LinkedIn even more profitable. I've read other books about LinkedIn, but this is by far the best. No doubt about it!

LinkedIn Marketing: An Hour A Day is an excellent resource for learning the ins and outs of this brilliant online tool. That Viveka von Rosen is a third party not immediately connected to LinkedIn gives this title extra opportunities to leverage (exploit?) what the system was designed for.

von Rosen's writing style makes this book very digestible, and the format allows real action for the person who finds it difficult to prioritise social media in their business development strategies.

By the end of Chapter 1, you've got a clear understanding of why it's necessary to utilise LinkedIn, and from the start of Chapter 2 onwards, the 'how to' makes this a useful, and necessary guide for anyone wanting to take advantage of LinkedIn.

The online supplements to this book are fantastic, ensuring that the content of the book is regularly updated to reflect the new changes, platforms and tools available for the networked individual or business.

I recently read three books on LinkedIn to brush up on LinkedIn skills for a couple corporate clients. You can always learn something - that' s my motto!

This is the best book on LinkedIn of the bunch. Viveka Rosen is clearly a 'guru' of LinkedIn, and she really loves LinkedIn - that comes through loud and clear. She also has good pointers to buried resources you might not find otherwise. It has a lot of great technical information, but like Scott, she gets lost in the technical details without giving you a big picture or structural map. None of the books situates LinkedIn in the context of all social media marketing, and while LinkedIn is great for some companies, it is not that relevant for others.

All of the books would be helped if that had an initial section on 'social media marketing' in general, and helped businesses and individuals to figure out if LinkedIn matches their marketing objectives before they dive in!

In terms of Viveka von Rosen, in particular, she is so incredibly important and famous on LinkedIn that I felt that at times she lost focus on the 'little people' who won't have her clout or importance. So the good news is she is a LinkedIn guru, and that's the bad news as well (isn't that so often the case?).

(You can find out more about me by clicking on my Amazon profile; or just Google 'Jason McDonald,' as I am No. 1 for my name).
