4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Guide July 7 2010
By Janet Barclay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Before reading the book, I had thought it would explain how you can maintain a strong presence for your business in only 60 minutes a day, but that's not quite what it's about. It is actually a sixteen-week program, taking you from planning to implementation and evaluating your results. Every day has an assigned task which should take approximately one hour to complete, making it ideal for readers who prefer a practical, structured approach to learning.

The "course outline" is as follows:

Month 1: Create the Plan and Get Started
Month 2: Establish Corporate Presence with Pages and Groups
Month 3: Create Demand with Facebook Ads
Month 4: Advanced Tactics and Campaign Integration

There is a wealth of valuable information in this volume, much of which is not limited to Facebook but is relevant to any form of social media marketing. It's next to impossible to talk about any component of social media in isolation, because they all work together so closely.

Facebook changes so often that no one can know for sure what the future will hold, so the Appendix containing the opinions of six industry experts on "The Future of Facebook" was particularly fascinating. It is clear that social media in general, and Facebook in particular, are going to continue to play a major role in people's lives, so it's going to become increasingly important for businesses to get involved if they don't want to get left behind.

Whether or not you choose to follow the daily steps, this book is an excellent guide for anyone wanting a better understanding of how Facebook works and how they can leverage it to promote their business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indespensible Resource Plus Get More Resources Online May 3 2010
By Ark Lady (Diana L Guerrero) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Any user of Facebook needs this book. If you are a small business owner or active online promoting your brand it really helps to have a guide and a shortcut to being effective online.

I first met Mari Smith online as I was getting my profile and fan pages up and operating.

Since then I found that she is THE leader in anything Facebook and is accessible from her fan page to help with any updates or questions that might come up.

What I liked about Facebook Marketing An Hour a Day is that it gives you a background on Facebook, defines it, and then helps guide you into developing a strategy and how to measure it.

In addition it also teaches you how to use pages and groups, how to use ads, and advanced tactics--so it is great for the average user or the small business person or online marketing teams.

I selected the Kindle edition because of the rapidly changing nature of social media so I could get it right away.

Things in social media change so fast (just like Facebook's new revamps over the last two weeks) so I do encourage you to download and begin using it right away.

This book is well worth the investment--go get it now and then go find MariSmith on Facebook!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Many $500 Courses I've Bought May 7 2010
By William T. Harrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I heard one of the authors give an awesome presentation at a conference last year, so I was eagerly awaiting this book. Fortunately it didn't disappoint! Lots of great specific, actionable how-to instructions -- just what I need to get my Facebook marketing going. In fact, the book is better than many courses I've bought from other marketing experts for $500+ (and some of those were pretty good too). Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wearing out my yellow highlighter July 7 2010
By Charles Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I started reading Mari Smith and Chris Treadaway's new book, Facebook Marketing: An Hour a Day and it is slow going.

It is NOT slow reading because it is poorly written or dull.

I'm reading it slowly because I am literally using up my yellow highlighter marking important passages. Then I have to pause to write little margin notes. And then of course I must put those little sticker bookmarks on pages I know I'll want to refer back to again and again.

Not to mention that I have to jot down ideas gleaned from Smith and Treadway in a little notebook I keep with me at all times.

And all that doesn't include the time I spend being envious of these two and their brilliant ideas. I just wish I had written this book instead.

Treadaway and Smith have written that rare book that balances in-depth, expert advice without leaving the newbe behind in the dust. It is just packed with actionable ideas any marketer can use to take advantage of the breathtaking potential of Facebook to promote their business.

5.0 out of 5 stars A guided tour to Facebook mastery May 4 2010
By John Jantsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Facebook is so hot right now that businesses are jumping in without a plan or clue. This book is the kind of tool you need to dig in and create a strategy and master the technical stuff that can create so much frustration for the business owner already strapped for time.

The book will also help marketers demonstrate to CEOs and department heads reluctant to explore Facebook and other social media platforms how to treat Facebook as in integrated part of the marketing whole.

John Jantsch author of The Referral Engine: Teaching Your Business to Market Itself
