Simply having a social media presence is not enough. Your tweets, websites, blog posts, and social networking pages can build your business — or sabotage it. Do your homework. Study these questions before you dive into the sea of social media, and maximize your marketing impact.

Why do I need a brand?

  • What's the difference between a brand, an online presence, and a persona?

  • How do I develop my brand strategy?

  • What is my brand's objective?

What makes a website social?

  • How do I add a blog to my website?

  • What tone should I use?

  • Should I leave comments on other websites?

What about Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn?

  • How do I increase my Twitter following?

  • Should I link my Facebook and Twitter accounts?

  • What are LinkedIn groups?

What else should I think about?

  • Do I still need a business card?

  • What's a Tweetup?

  • How can I keep my social media efforts interesting?

Great Summary and Reference book for Social Media execution Sept. 8 2011
By deandec - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have a passing knowledge of creating web pages and reading of blogs but did not understand how a business or a person should use the tools to create a Web presence.

The author and publisher created an easy to understand book of specific information and a well organized process which one can follow to venture into the Social Media world. The cross reference links in the presentation is very useful in maintaining the reader's focus.

As I begin the process, this book will be a key reference tool and removes much of the mystery of the tools of Social Media Marketing.

Excellent resource for my library and future efforts.

An eye-opening introduction to social media marketing Nov. 23 2011
By Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An eye-opening look at marketing with social media. This not only describes how businesses today are using Facebook, twitter, and LinkedIn to their advantage, it sets forth a plan of action. Beyond getting set up on sites and actually starting your social media campaigns, it shows you how to keep track of your success, which was a key point for me since I already know how to use these sites, just not with Peck's expertise. A major focus of the book is also creating your own website (there's a huge chapter on this broken down into several sections). This is explained in very basic terms.

My favorite chapter is titled "Building an Online Identity" and it goes through the how-to of establishing yourself on the Internet, which I've found can just be a black hole if you don't do it right.

Overall, a nice introduction to social media marketing.
