Editorial Reviews

Review

The #1 complaint I hear when speaking with entrepreneurs about social media is the amount of time it takes to keep up with it. I highly recommend Thumbonomics to these crazy busy business owners as a real roadmap to success. Lutze outlines a clear plan of attack and demonstrates how to achieve a high ROI from your social and mobile marketing plan. It's a must read for any CEO or leader. --Laura Stack, President of the National Speakers Association and Author of SuperCompetent

Heather Lutze clears through the wild brush of techno-babel speak with decisive flair. Her clear, bullet lists of actionable take aways promise to make this an indispensable guide for successful entrepreneurs in the coming years. --Gillan Muessig, Founding President, SEOMoz.org

Thumbonomics was a great for me as I have been amused at social media and pretty decided it was not worth investment for us. Heather' book is extremely insightful and addressed all of my fears and concerns about how it would affect our company. I think it is a must read for all management as it is only when we as managers truly understand how profoundly the internet will affect all facets of our business that we will be able to empower our team to rise to this challenge. --Laura Stack

Thumbonomics is like having a personal coach for social media marketing mastery. With passion, wit and clarity, author Heather Lutze provides a process that works, broken down is simple, manageable steps anyone can follow. I recommend it highly. - Anthony Robbins, World renown authority on psychology of leadership, negotiations, organizational growth and peak performance --Anthony Robbins, World Renowned authority on psychology of leadership,

Heather Lutze's Thumbonomics is exactly what it claims to be: A roadmap to social media & mobile marketing.

A road map (remember those?) shows you how to get where you want to go, calls attention to major landmarks along the way, and helps orient you when you're lost.

Lutze does all this and more in this very helpful book.

One of the things I most appreciate about Heather is that she's incredibly intelligent and passionate about her subject (social media marketing, SEO, etc) and yet manages to convey that wealth of information in a format that is easily read, enjoyed, digested, and...most importantly - applied!

This is a step-by-step guide. If you're a social media marketing maven, you'll probably find some of the early material rudimentary. Keep going - she's just laying a foundation for the power that comes later and you'll find a gem or two.

If you're new to social media marketing, or have been dabbling - even extensively, but without really knowing what you're doing or why you're doing it, this is an incredible resource and the only one you'll need for a long time. This book is for you!

Thank you Heather Lutze for putting together this guide - it's helpful, I can use it, and it's fun. (What more could anyone ask? :)

Take care,

David

Man does this woman get it. Heather Lutze is a Diva amongst Divas. She understands social media and teaches how anyone can master the art. I highly recommend this book. If you ever get a chance to attend on of her classes, it is well worth it.

Within an hour of picking up this book, I was able to make more headway on my social media profiles than I have made in a year. The book is well written and easy to follow. By using the action plans at the end of each chapter, I was able to "pimp" each of my social media channels with my keyword phrases that will drive my business. Being one of the top restaurant brokers in Boston, it is critical for me to have professional, cutting edge profiles that will show up ion the search engines. Heather's instructions are step-by-step and easy to follow. They are crystal clear! My linked in profile is 100% complete and is superior to all of my competitors that sell restaurants in Boston. I highly recommend this book! In fact, I purchased 16...one for me, and 15 to give away to members of my Mastermind and Networking groups. Thanks Heather!

Social media and mobile technology is changing quickly. Heather was ahead of her time when she wrote this, published in 2011, and still rings true now in 2013. She's focused on companies, mid to large sized, but as an individual/small business owner I was able to understand how to approach social media from a professional level regardless of company size/revenue. I'm glad that she makes readers aware that they need to get over the idea that social media is about posting photos from happy hour, vacations, and tweets while waiting in line at the grocery store. That was okay a few years back, but to put your business in the game today it requires a planned set of actions and most importantly - a two-way conversation with both prospects and customers. Thumbonomics will set you and your organization on the right course to be relevant to today's buyer, from age 18 to 75 and beyond.

I finished this book and thought it was absolutely dead on. If I were new to this industry and did not have a lot of knowledge about internet marketing and new technologies and processes today, I would find this book to be a wonderful resource. There is insightful information that even as a marketing professional that I would not have thought of. Currently I am developing a QR code plan that will place a product QR code on a package to direct them to our Youtube Brand Page to show video about the product so that they can see it in action, something you cannot see at point of sale. QR codes are fantastic if they direct people to dynamic content beyond a static webpage, especially if that webpage is not formatted for mobile format.

Thank you so much for sharing this book and continuing to share your vast knowledge. The book is fabulous!!! I will share it with everyone I know and recommend it as a definate read for marketing professionals.

Before I read Heather's books, I thought I had a pretty good handle on Internet and Mobile Marketing and Social Media. Well...there is always more to learn, especially in this ever-changing space. What I love about Thumbonomics, is it's easy-to-read, roadmap approach, makes it simple to implement right away as your ready through the book. From chapter-to-chapter, you can go right back to your business and implement with your Team. In fact, that's how I recommend you do it. The book is technology interactive too, meaning with a simple QR Code reader, you can immediately access resources she's made available to you, which most writers charge for. This way you're moving from theory to implementation in no time at all.

I was first introduced to Heather, when I saw her on stage at Tony Robbins Business Mastery event in Fiji. WOW! She really captivated us and educated us. I immediately read her first book, The Findability Formula, upon returning home. Again, taking what she had taught us so well and putting it into action, so it has quantifiable meaning to my business - not, "oh, that was such a great book..." The ROI on this read is through the roof!

A MUST tool for those looking to understand and implement proven ways to grow your business through Mobile Marketing and Social Media.
