5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Provides good advice at strategic and tactial levels. 23 Feb. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best, perhaps THE best, book on social media I've read. Heather Mansfield's advice on social media strategy is excellent. And she provides practical advice on how to do the things she recommends. While the book is targeted specifically to nonprofits, it's useful for people who are not in the nonprofit world. I consider this book a great investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Organized + Easy to use Immediately 7 Oct. 2011
By jeanne allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I follow Heather's blog and find her ideas very useful. This book seems to bring together most of her ideas in a very tight and well organized book. It is easy to find an idea and put it to use. Many of these ideas are in her blog, but this is so much easier for those who are beginners or advanced beginners with social media. I recommended it to several folks who won't go looking through blogs for answers,but who would find a book easy. So many ideas, I get inspired and start writing down my own adaptations and how I can make these ideas work. I love the "Nonprofit Examples of Excellence" so I can go to those sites and see for myself how they use the ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide for businesses also. 14 Sept. 2011
By Jason - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I used this step-by-step, how to guide to get my FOR PROFIT business a social media footprint. With little social media knowledge, I took my brand's web presence from zero to effective in 256 entertaining pages. Clear & concise, this book is a must have for any business looking to test the waters or fine tune their social media efforts. I even have my sales staff reading this in hopes that some of the info will make it's way to our customers. 5 stars...

5.0 out of 5 stars Social Good is good. 11 Dec. 2011
By Bill G - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found ths book to be VERY useful. As a small NGO I have no staff. This book fills me in as if I had a 3 or 4 person team. When I go out for help I feel like I know what I am talking about. Whether paid or volunteer help I get much better results. I bought a second copy as a gift for a friend who also has an NGO. He seems to like it even more than I do.
For me I call this just in time publishing, what I needed just when I needed it.
