Great SM Reference

If you have a base understanding of social media marketing, this book increase your knowledge of SM marketing substantially. But if you really want to master the subject, you have to take advantage of the downloadable toolbook and the links he references in the book. They are excellent resources, many of which I didn't know existed. If you are listening to the book, you can easily jot down the links and refer to them later. He provides you with a password to download the entire book so accessing the links is a snap. I have definitely seen and significant increase in industry engagement as a result of ideas from the book. I am not sure why people are aggravated by the links. You can choose only the links that interest you, and I have yet to click a link that was not relevant to what I needed. The author also provides his email address if you have specific questions. I was skeptical but sent an email with a question, and I had a response within 24 hours.

If you don’t learn something from this book perhaps you should be writing instead of reading

Well written and structured with tools to help with strategy and business planning. I devoured this book over five days via Audible during my daily commute to work. While I know a bit about social media I am no guru when it comes to SEO. Plenty of information for varying levels of knowledge. I feel newcomers will benefit the most from the SEO Fitness Wotkbook 2018 but even experienced marketers should glean some information if not some inspiration. Well worth the small price for a piece written by a Stanford PhD. I feel I received a fair amount of knowledge and I am inspired to pursue a higher level of training and knowledge. FYI Jason is quick to respond to email inquires - I feel like a I have a smart friend in the business now.

Very Complete and Practical Framework

This book offers a great framework to leverage social media for any type of business. It is informative and practical, but also allows you the opportunity to use creativity to adapt it to whatever your project or business might be. Worth the time to listen to the whole book, but also written to serve as a quick reference if you already know a lot of the basics or if you already have good reason to specialize on particular platforms (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, etc). This book also features the most comprehensive set of extra materials I've ever seen for an audiobook, including a full PDF version, worksheets, videos, and endless other resources.

Worth checking out if you have ever wondered how to improve your influence on social media.

Not a lot of actionable ideas

Hard to follow. Not a lot of actionable steps to take. I got lost and I actually know quite a bit about and use social media in my business extensively.
