    The book is geared more toward salespeople at fairly large companies, but the strategies on using social media are still helpful and there are good takeaways that anyone can use.

    A good overview for beginners on how to use social media to increase sales. It was written in 2014, so keep that in mind as the social media landscape is constantly changing each day, but the strategies can still be applied across various channels. I rate it 4 stars for beginners, but if you're already familiar with using social media as a marketing tool, you probably already know this stuff.

    (Audiobook) This book seems a bit outdated as social media platforms change constantly, however, the principles of selling online are still the same. The book focuses on B2B and B2C social media selling techniques.

    Shannon Belew, a professional in her industry, has well written a book with resourceful information. She explains the importance to incorporate and use social media in your sales field to attract potential customers. “Somewhere along the way, people transitioned from using social media merely as a way to commemorate small milestones….to a medium…building business relationships.” Ms. Belew relays this information straight, no chaser. She immediately offers you to engage with her social media netw Shannon Belew, a professional in her industry, has well written a book with resourceful information. She explains the importance to incorporate and use social media in your sales field to attract potential customers. “Somewhere along the way, people transitioned from using social media merely as a way to commemorate small milestones….to a medium…building business relationships.” Ms. Belew relays this information straight, no chaser. She immediately offers you to engage with her social media networks on Twitter, Facebook, Linked In and Google+. She further shares that there are two tiers of social networks. Tier 1: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linked In. Tier 2: YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, Slide Share. She informs that blogs have a narrow focus with an easy identifying target. As you read further, you learn that customer care is still a key process, “everyone in the company must care, every time.” Also, there must be an immediate response to a customer’s inquiry (1-3 days). You will learn that there are ten rules to online social interaction, a few being Listen, Listen, Listen and maintaining separation of professional and personal. In Chapter 5: Tweets, Like, Comments, and Recommendations, you learn online reviews is Word-of-Mouth Marketing on Steriods. I can relate to this with my experience using Twitter and Facebook. Ms. Belew shares that you must create good visual and text content when engaging on social networks to attract potential clients: Text Content: Linked In – connections to sales, Twitter – 140 characters or less (microblogging site), Facebook – fans to customers, Google+ - circles to opportunites, and for Visual Content: Pinterest – pins to customers, Slide Share – presentations. She uses case studies and has related notes for every chapter. Included is a free sample chapter from ‘New Sales, Simplified’ by Mike Weinberg. I recommend Ms. Belew’s book to all sales professionals needing a no-nonsense approach using social media to enhance building business relationships. (I received this book for free from O’Reilly Media for this review)

    I purchased this book thinking that it might benefit small business owners. Unfortunately, it doesn't, as the content is almost entirely geared towards social selling in big business and corporations. While it wasn't quite what I was expecting when I purchased it for a friend, I'm definitely glad it's now ended up on my personal bookshelf. As long as the audience is appropriate, it's a great book full of useful advice for social selling, addressing profile ownership issues in a large offices, an I purchased this book thinking that it might benefit small business owners.

    Social media is an extremely popular method of marketing. It’s relatively inexpensive, it’s far-reaching, and it’s fun. It’s gratifying when people follow you, share your content, and engage with your business. But are your social media activities helping to increase your bottom line?

    Plenty of interesting bits of information and some good advice about strategy and tactics in social media marketing. I didn't finish listening because I determined that the topic was of less interest than the presentation.
