Laura's voice was easy to listen to. Her speaking was clear, well paced, and with appropriate expression to the book content.
The book gave me a lot to think about regarding social media marketing as an author. I am already listening to it again to deepen my understanding of the concepts Chris shared and thinking about how to apply them to my own social media engagement.
The premise of this book is that you should have a plan and strategies for social marketing, not just how to use tactics and tools. (That's the trap I often fall into - shiny object syndrome!) in order to help you use social media in the long term regardless of which rules get changed or which platforms become most popular - or not. That is definitely a SMART approach!
The details she offers, particularly emphasizing the right way to approach various topics. Most of her tips were time-savers from and insider's perspective.
The examples that show you rather than just telling you how a feature should work. Also, the book launch examples were extremely helpful.
Her voice was energetic and added to the consumption of the material.
Yes, the section on goals, objectives, strategies and tactics caused me to change the way I approached my social media marketing almost immediately. Knowing the differences helped me expand in some of my efforts, and throw out some non-productive procedures I previously employed.
This is the ideal book for ANY published Author who want to increase sales!
Eyes opened wider, and lightbulbs turned on!
Excellent Book! Great reading!
Having read the book when I first published my novel, I decided to listen to the Audible version at the same time while re-reading the book to refresh my memory. It was the Smartest thing to do!
I have taken several courses and read a couple of other books on Facebook marketing, however Chris Syme has tailored her approach to authors which helped narrow the focus to my specific needs. I highly recommend this book to authors -- both traditionally published and indie published.
Listening to someone articulate the content kept my attention
Thank you Chris Syme for teaching me the ways of Facebook Marketing for Authors!
