5.0 out of 5 stars it covers a great deal of information 21 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I used this text for my dissertation studies at University, it covers a great deal of information, accurately and on a easy to understand basis. I found the digital social media topics very useful and was great evidence for my study.

The fact I could have it in kindle format, online instantly was very helpful as I could take it everywhere I went, wherever I was to study - thank you!

3.0 out of 5 stars 5 star "Reviews"??? 17 Nov 2013
By Robin Lux - Published on
Most of these 5-star-reviews are obviously fake. come on guys! "owsinski master of getting his point across" he makes sense of it on every page"ideas enabled me to attract more fans than i could have ever imagined'" blah blah. When did the book appear on the market? Like 2 weeks ago? That's all the time s.o. needed to attract more fans around the world than he could have ever imagined??? there's no mentioning of ANYTHING specific concerning the content, not the slightest flaw? Nothing at all worth mentioning besides shiny, catchy phrases like, "no nonsense - just the good stuff!"? those are not reviews.

Reading the free chapter made me doubtful if this book is really a "must-have" vor musicians, it seemed pretty "blah blah" to me. 2 stars for the free chapter and for the publisher paying people to write positive albeit sonsensical reviews.

i want to add that i have and very much appreciate owsinskis "mixing enginieers handbook" which i indeed find informative, understandable and useful. it might still be a good book. but these 5-star reviews made me doubt it more than believe it.

after i wrote the above text i actually bought and read the book. It's ok, very easy and fast to read, covers different domains of online marketing (e.g. google+, mailinglist, facebook) and gives specific advice on how and when to communicate with fans. that said, it does not go very deep into the matter, most topics are covered with just a few sentences. which is kind of ok, if the specific (though sometimes self-explanatory) advice Owsinski gives is what you look for. But his advice is not very detailed and putting it to use might still pose some problems for people not very well acquainted with the online platformes presented. another minus: there's some popular platforms owsinski does not cover at all, for example bandcamp and soundcloud. in conclusion, easy to read, good for a first impression/ an overview on the topic, hands-on tips for musicians who have never faced the topic online marketing before, but in no way exhaustive - not for people who really want to dig into the matter.

Not a bad buy overall. Great for a beginner, though for those who are a little more comfortable with social media I'm sure you'll learn a new thing or two.
