I recently spent some time talking to Sarah Morales of Vertical Measures to discuss the new Engage and we wound up having a fun and in-depth conversation that I felts was also worth sharing with you here.
Sarah: This is the updated version of the book that championed, “Engage or Die!” What are the main events in social media that have occurred since the last version?
I got to know Michael Brito several years ago when he worked on the social media team at Intel. Since then, we’ve worked together in a variety of projects becoming good friends along the way. I was proud when Michael landed his book deal for Smart Business, Social Business and I was honored when Michael asked me to write the Foreword.
Smart Business, Social Business is now available and the publisher has agreed to let me share the foreword here. Enjoy!
I was recently asked to write the foreword for Social Media Geek-to-Geek by Rick & Kathy Schmidt Jamison. I was delighted to help and as always, I requested to publish the foreword here when the book was released. Now that the book is available on Amazon, I’m excited to share the foreword with you here…
This guest post is by Michael Stelzner, the founder of Social Media Examiner and author of the new book Launch.
Social and selling just don’t mix. Have you ever been to a wedding sponsored by Nike? Does a future where restaurant tables display infomercials sound appealing?
The last thing anyone wants in a social context is a commercial. If you’re responsible for marketing your business, the time for change is now.
My good friend Olivier Blanchard recently released his new book, Social Media ROI, Managing and Measuring Social Media Efforts in Your Organization. As he was nearing its completion, he asked if I would write the foreword and to be honest, I was flattered. I agreed to do so under one condition, that I get the opportunity to share the foreword with you here. Long story short, here we are. The book is extremely helpful and carries the endorsements of those I also respect including Chris Brogan, Jay Baer, Geoff Livingston, and Kyle Lacy.
I’ve some great news to share with you! One year after its official release Engage 2.0 is now available…
If you just bought the original Engage, don’t worry, this book doesn’t replace it. Engage 2.0 is a different book with a different purpose.
If you’re wondering why you are seeing a few more guest posts or shorter posts than usual, there’s a reason.
The next chapters in this incredible adventure are soon to unfold. Within the next few weeks, I’ll share some special news about Engage…on 3/7/11. But, before then, I would like to let you in on a little secret. I’ve already started writing my next book.
Have some time to spare? More specifically, do you have 12 hours and 50 minutes available?
If so, I’m happy to share some great news…Engage is finally available on Audible.com. Engage was written to help you find the answers…that only you can answer. It places the you at the center of social media’s impact on your business and hopefully inspires you to become the expert you once relied upon for direction and insight. Whether you’re a champion, a leader, or a student, this is your time…
My friends over at Wiley Publishing alerted me to some good news today. If you own an iPad or iPhone, Engage! is now available in the Apple iBookstore.
Now is the time for businesses to shift from experimenting with social media to strategically designing and measuring campaigns that contribute to brand resonance, positive sentiment, advocacy, and most importantly, the bottom line. While many books, talk about social media as something that businesses need to embrace, most leave marketers wondering what they need to do and how this information applies to them
One of the most difficult tasks that I face when discussing Engage is the dance I perform between author and promoter. The balance is never clear, but intention is what I hope speaks volumes.
Engage is a handbook for anyone working in new media. For executives, it will help you lead transformation. For champions, it provides you with the insight to win support. For business owners, it empowers you to compete for attention and customers and expand your footprint. The list goes on…
