    "Be SMART on Social Media"
    What about Laura E. Richcreek’s performance did you like?

    Laura's voice was easy to listen to. Her speaking was clear, well paced, and with appropriate expression to the book content.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    Story
    "User-Friendly Social Media Marketing"
    What did you love best about SMART Social Media for Authors: The Practical Guide for Anyone to Sell More Books?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The examples that show you rather than just telling you how a feature should work. Also, the book launch examples were extremely helpful.


    What about Laura E. Richcreek’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was energetic and added to the consumption of the material.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.

    Story
    "Listen & Read Together"
    Would you consider the audio edition of SMART Social Media for Authors: The Practical Guide for Anyone to Sell More Books to be better than the print version?

    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!


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What does Laura E. Richcreek bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Listening to someone articulate the content kept my attention


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Chris Syme for teaching me the ways of Facebook Marketing for Authors!
