Power Tips for Power Users {The Art Of Social Media Book Review}

Anyone who’s trying to earn a living {or even just entertain a few folks} online knows the importance of social media.

But knowing that you have to do something, and know how to do it right are two different things.

Luckily for us, Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick teamed up to offer one value-packed solution for mastering social media.

The Art of Social Media Power Tips for Power Users

In The Art of Social Media, Guy and Peg deliver valuable, actionable tips that will help you succeed in bringing value to your followers and making meaningful connections online.

I met both Guy and Peg at BlogHer’14 and after following them online for some time, I can honestly say that they are the real deal. They don’t create a persona online that is out-of-synch with the reality of who they are. So, when Peg mentioned that the book would be coming out later this year I already knew that it would be on-point.

My online life began about a year and a half ago. I’ve somehow been able to amass a following of 61,918 people {Google+, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube combined} with decent engagement on each platform. Every day I have notifications of plus 1’s, shares, retweets, favorites, mentions, re-pins, likes, etc. I also gain {and lose} followers daily.

Despite having a somewhat successful start to building my platform, I know I could do better. I need to do better. I want to step it up. And now I know exactly what I need to do on each site to add more value to my fans.

What I liked the most…

It’s not a basic how-to. As the subtitle would suggest, this book is packed with power tips for power users. Tips for how you should link your content across platforms {without being spammy and failing to consider the different rules of engagement} and for perfecting your interactions on each profile are some of my favorites.

The tips are next-level. For example, do you often wonder how to make yourself a part of larger conversations that are happening on social media? Well, they’ve got you covered. They’ve included things I hadn’t even thought about. But will make all the difference.

They give you more resources for just about everything. I always appreciate when an author points you towards the great tools they mention than you having to go searching for yourself.

Who this book is for…

Anyone and everyone who wants to go PRO in social media. There are hundreds of insights, tips, and tricks that will help you to build a consistent and valuable online presence.

I especially think every blogger – beginner, intermediate, and advanced – should have a copy. No offense to my fellow bloggers but seriously, we are some of the worse offenders! I know the number one goal is to get people back to our sites, but we’ve gotta do better about optimizing social media profiles, adding value to peers and followers, and making valuable connections online.

This book is also perfect for business owners who’ve been using social media for a while and are looking for ways to take it up a notch. You will get exactly what you need to step it up and truly position yourself as an expert in your industry.

Whether you’re wondering how to best maximize the use social for your next event, to spark conversations about your business, or to share your valuable content, The Art of Social Media is the tool for you.

It’s not a book you’ll read once and put to the side. This one stays on the desk {or is first on Kindle}. Grab your copy today. Trust me, you will want to own this one… and will refer to it often.
