Open Book and Discussion Group based on the book:
Social BOOM!: How to Master Business Social Media to Brand Yourself, Sell Yourself, Sell Your Product, Dominate Your Industry Market, Save Your Butt, … and Grind Your Competition into the Dirt
The book was written by Jeffrey Gitomer
Tuesday Evening 04.12.11 at 7
Jeffrey Gitomer skillfully illustrates how to monetize social media. He has consistently written best-selling business books for years because he drives the message in the direction of profit-based strategy. Popularity and ratings are all fine for celebrities and politics but Gitomer always looks to the bottom line for his pat on the back. Gitomer shares credit with several others adding their voice to the book in chapters. Mitch Joel, Sally Hogshead, Richard Brasser, Joe Soto, Julien Smith and other are hefty contributors.
If you haven’t thought that social media, or certain aspects of it, was worth the time and effort Jeffrey Gitomer will evangelize you. The separate sections on LinkedIn and using Facebook for business justify the price of the book. Twitter and YouTube information is unique and shown as part of an overall design. It is actually unfair to attempt to summarize this book in one evening. You need to read these 190 pages even if it is while standing up in the business section of Barnes & Noble.
If you are in career transition, sales, or an entrepreneur you need the content on this book. If you are in a company that doesn’t understand this book you should be in career transition. His own customers include Coca-Cola, Caterpillar, BMW, AT&T Wireless, Hilton, NCR, Comcast Cable, Wells Fargo Bank, GlaxoSmithKline, AC Nielsen, IBM, The New York Post, and hundreds of others.

“Resilience is not what happens to you. It’s how you react to, respond to, and recover from what happens to you.” — Jeffrey Gitomer
