However, Joel Comm's book provides real insight for the virgin twitterer who plans to use Twitter as a marketing tool for business. He fully explores all the built in Twitter features and shows you everything from maxing your Twitter appearance to keeping your tweets on the right side of libel!
He also explores the profusion of applications created to help you make the most of Twitter. However, bear in mind that the app list will have been superceded almost as soon as the ink dried on the printed page. I'd advise checking out the current selection of apps IN ADDITION to those outlined in the book.
Good book - absolutely worth the money if you plan to use Twitter in a business capacity. Not heavy on the jargon - I found it easy to read and I'm not a techie minded person at all.
Unfortunately, the whole business world is switching on to Twitter and it is increasingly being used in this way - which gets a bit annoying for everyone else on there who doesn't want a marketing man selling them anything. Read the etiquette section carefully so that you don't end up annoying people.
The Anthony Robbins involvement is the Foreword - he doesn't contribute actual copy to the book content.
If you are not a user of Twitter either as a personal user or a business looking to dip their toe in the water of social media, this book covers everything. Starting from the basics, this book explains how to open a Twitter account, get the look and feel right with adding your own background, profile picture and any external links you may have. Even though Twitter is very easy to use and quite clearly laid out, I would imagine some people may find this useful.
As the book progresses it clearly outlines to you the does and dont's of managing your Twitter profile from how to build your followers in the right way and how to tweet, which is vital if you are going to both maintain your existing followers and acquire new followers.
One of the chapters explains about some of the various different types of apps available to use in for managing your Twitter profile, tweets, retweets and how to track tweeted links.
Primarily written for businesses but for personal users of Twitter there is a good chapter on Twitter monitoring or `listening' as I like to call it. It explains how to use the search.twitter.com function and then explains how to engage in conversations with those tweeters.
Would I suggest reading it?
Overall it is a good book and purveys Joel's enthusiasm for the subject and more so the Internet. It is best for those coming fresh to Twitter, it is not really for those that currently have accounts, or those people that have read about such corporate successes like; @comcastcares, @southwestair, @btcare and @easyJetcare.
I liked this book very much because it covers everything to give a complete newbie the confidence to start using Twitter to promote their business.
The book covers so many useful topics. Best of all for me was Twitter etiquette and how to avoid annoying fellow twitterers. Also absolutely invaluable references to Twitter tools (mainly free) to ease and enhance your twitter campaign.
Minor criticism, bit short, could have gone deeper with examples of the actual words used to promote. Otherwise I would have given 5 stars.
Sincere thanks to the author.
The book covers all the basics: setting up your Twitter account, choosing the right kind of layout and design, and the choice of your profile picture. It talks about ways of connecting with friends and potential customers. Most importantly, the book deals with ways of making your Twitter posts relevant and interesting so that people would want to follow you. It also discusses how to drive traffic to your website through Twitter, and the optimum amount of advertising that your followers would appreciate. All these tips are something that you may be able to discover on your own if you are patient enough and willing to learn from your mistakes, but it's very useful to have it all presented in the format of easily navigable book. That way you will hopefully not have to make too many mistakes in your approach to Twitter.Read more ›
