If you're thinking about using websites, social media and other online tools to cheaply and effectively market your business but don't know where to start, this is a great book to get you going. It's not a technical handbook but it does help you navigate through the many potential tools and provides practical advice on choosing and using them for best effect.

The author, Jon Reed, is a friendly and entertaining guide, always ready with a story or example to illustrate a point, always ready to point you in the right direction to get things moving. He constantly reminds you not to just leap in and use tools like twitter for the sake of it. Instead, he encourages you to think about your marketing aims and what you want to achieve - and then helps you choose the most effective tools with that in mind. Though I'm not quite sure I believe his "I am not a geek" claim, Reed always has the practicalities in mind. He keeps things as simple as possible, shows how online tools can make your life - and your business - easier, and understands the day-to-day challenges we all face: pressured time, limited money and (at least for some) a fear of using technology.

This practical slant is reflected in the book's emphasis on the use of third party tools: software, plugins and widgets that perform defined tasks (often for free) and save you the need to commission, brief and pay web designers or programmers. Of course you could find all these online tools yourself if you had sufficient time. What Get Up to Speed... does really well, though, is help you know what does what and what's worth spending the time and effort to implement. Some of the best `takeaway' points from the book are simple, but it's unlikely you would stumble across them unless you'd tried all these things out yourself.

Format: Paperback
"Get up to speed" is that rare thing: a how-to manual which neither patronises its readers nor bores them to death with great swathes of over-technical detail or dreaded jargon. Added to which, it is quite elegantly written in a breezy, conversational style which allows the reader to zip through with pleasure, effortlessly absorbing the information they are after.

Jon Reed is particularly perceptive on the "culture" of Social Media and on the ever-evolving etiquette of on-line marketing do's & don'ts. On the practical side, it is also astonishingly comprehensive and I found myself making note of blogging tools and websites I had vaguely heard of but wasn't quite sure what they were for - until I read this book.

As he points out, we no longer call a car a "motor" car. The "social" Web is simply the Web and it is the way so much marketing and more is going. This book should get you up to speed and even put you ahead of the game.

Online marketing can be a bit of a black art for those that don't follow it closely and I bought this book to try and understand if we were doing it correctly as well as update my own understanding. This book is incredibly well written, it offers piratical tips and great advice. Its also enjoyable to read, this subject could be considered a little dry but I came away feeling both inspired and educated.

If you are looking for a book that breaks down the myth that is online marketing into sensible bite sized chunks then this is for you. A must for all marketeers, business owners and people interested in this subject.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Unusually for a non-fiction title this book is a really good read AND packed full of relevant and up to date information.

A month or so into setting up my own business, I acquired an armful of business books. This book stood out from the crowd as a business gem, as it never strays from the purpose of online marketing as a tool to aid the discussion between you and your customers as well as you and your potential customers. The case studies help to keep the book flowing and make the possibilities explained in the technical sections seem extremely accessible.

Before I read the book, I was a self proclaimed online `curtain twitcher', using Facebook for fun and occasionally logging in to LinkedIn, and I would probably have summed up social media as a modern time waster.

Jon Reed turned this all on its head. He generously shares his huge bank of knowledge, taking the reader on an exciting journey with easy to follow exercises. His enthusiasm is infectious, and he simply `gets it', understanding not only the whole maze of social media, but also what the reader needs to know to be able to use it and exactly the best way to explain it all.

While I would say that this book is probably not for you if you are already using online media fairly extensively, I recently mentioned to another small business owner that I had listed my new business in Google's Local Business Centre for free, and they gave me a bewildered look and asked how you can do that, which would have been my response before I read this book.

I have referred to this book over and over again, as well as signing up for my 5 day online marketing plan, and I would thoroughly recommend it. A must read!

This book is less a purchase than an investment. A fantastically clear and accessible account of social media and marketing today. It brings one step by step through the entire process of establishing a credible and effective on-line presence. It allows the reader to easily navigate to ones personal areas of concern making it an extremely practical reference guide as well as an engaging read in its own right. Best of all it equips the uninitiated with not only the tools to establish and manage an internet presence but to move on from the book's contents with confidence afterwards. An absolute must for business people in the modern era.
