Format: Paperback
This book fell into the trap of spending the first 100 pages going over what Facebook is, how it started, and the very basics of opening an account etc. All interesting stuff, but no meat.

I also didn't like the page layout and pictures. I think someone can come along and tackle this subject better.

First off, do buy this book and the others associated with it as they are handy guides to have and very informative. However it perhaps lacked everything I wanted to know and spent in my opinion too long waffling about things, as a successful entrepreneur I wanted quick access to solve things with face book, so I found this book slow for that but its worth the buy so do get it, don't be put off i would seriously suggest purchasing this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Just do a Google search for the info 29 Aug. 2016
By Centerdeal - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase information. Most of this information can be discovered with the average Google search. Long-winded in its writing as well. Takes forever to get to the point. Here's the overall idea of the book's premise....make posts daily, interact with others, stay positive, address issues immediately. There, I saved you a couple of bucks.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Guide 7 July 2010
By Janet Barclay - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Before reading the book, I had thought it would explain how you can maintain a strong presence for your business in only 60 minutes a day, but that's not quite what it's about. It is actually a sixteen-week program, taking you from planning to implementation and evaluating your results. Every day has an assigned task which should take approximately one hour to complete, making it ideal for readers who prefer a practical, structured approach to learning.

The "course outline" is as follows:

Month 1: Create the Plan and Get Started
Month 2: Establish Corporate Presence with Pages and Groups
Month 3: Create Demand with Facebook Ads
Month 4: Advanced Tactics and Campaign Integration

There is a wealth of valuable information in this volume, much of which is not limited to Facebook but is relevant to any form of social media marketing. It's next to impossible to talk about any component of social media in isolation, because they all work together so closely.

Facebook changes so often that no one can know for sure what the future will hold, so the Appendix containing the opinions of six industry experts on "The Future of Facebook" was particularly fascinating. It is clear that social media in general, and Facebook in particular, are going to continue to play a major role in people's lives, so it's going to become increasingly important for businesses to get involved if they don't want to get left behind.

Whether or not you choose to follow the daily steps, this book is an excellent guide for anyone wanting a better understanding of how Facebook works and how they can leverage it to promote their business.

This book was written in 2011 and published in 2012. It's outdated and should be removed. Waste of money!

Any user of Facebook needs this book. If you are a small business owner or active online promoting your brand it really helps to have a guide and a shortcut to being effective online.

I first met Mari Smith online as I was getting my profile and fan pages up and operating.

Since then I found that she is THE leader in anything Facebook and is accessible from her fan page to help with any updates or questions that might come up.

What I liked about Facebook Marketing An Hour a Day is that it gives you a background on Facebook, defines it, and then helps guide you into developing a strategy and how to measure it.

In addition it also teaches you how to use pages and groups, how to use ads, and advanced tactics--so it is great for the average user or the small business person or online marketing teams.

I selected the Kindle edition because of the rapidly changing nature of social media so I could get it right away.

Things in social media change so fast (just like Facebook's new revamps over the last two weeks) so I do encourage you to download and begin using it right away.

This book is well worth the investment--go get it now and then go find MariSmith on Facebook!
