5.0 out of 5 stars Killer Strategies In Using Social Media 27 Aug 2009
By John G
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
David Meerman Scott gave me a killer strategy in the first few pages that I am already using with great results. The work is mind expanding, opportunity expanding and results expanding. Using the strategies found in these pages will grow your business. Ever wondered how social media such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn work for business. This is it! Easy to read and easy to use. Don't tell too many people though, keep it to yourself.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a Small Business friendly guide 19 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you have access to PR companies or are opening a new theme park it could be useful, but nothing really helpful if you are a small business looking to promote your products

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly Written 30 Sep 2013
By Mju
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While the book contains many real life examples and some useful ideas, it is very hard to read, and it does feel like a waste of time reading it

For example, in the chapter "Create Triggers that encourage people to share", there is hardly anything that can be remotely called a trigger; the chapter instead discusses ways to get visibility and other stuff unrelated to triggers e.g. Thinking like a Venture Capitalist

Definitely worth buying this book :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughts generating 12 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Even though I am myself thinking along the same lines, dropping the corporate approach to communication, I still found a lot of the information inspirational. As it is largely based upon cases, you will probably find that some of the cases are totally irrelevant for you, but in that case you can just skip them. The remaining ones give you plenty to think about.
