What People Are Saying:

"Thank you, thank you, thank you - Jerry Battiste for finally giving us something everyone should be using. A simple guideline and tool for using Social Media.

Everyone today thinks they are a Social Media expert and I for one can say that Jerry Battiste has the right to make this proclamation. Jerry was the first journalist that I know of that began showing journalists all over the word how to use Social Media to drive readers to the print edition of the newspaper where he worked. Jerry did this long before media outlets around the world began realizing they needed to do something to connect with readers.

Now, Jerry has taken his work to the next level and he is making it easy for the rest of us to understand Social Media. He does so in a way that makes this book worth the price of admission.

Thank you, Jerry, for finally creating the book that needs to be in every Social Media "Expert" hands.

I highly recommend this book. You won't be disappointed."

"The ABC's of Social Media is a very easy, fun book to read. Jerry tells you upfront that it is not about any specific social media platform, but about how you should be using social medial tools. One of my favorite quotes from the book is: "It isn't the instrument you use to communicate that is important, it's the message you are communicating that matters most. So your social media network might change sites from time to time, but the mission, the urgency of getting your message out to the widest possible audience, will remain the same." I like the simple platform of each letter of the alphabet standing for an important point to remember when using social media. There are great reminders about what we all should be doing and new ideas to think about and implement."

Just being on facebook is only a start - doing it right, is the rest of it and this book will help you get that sorted out. If you hire a social media manager, they need to read this book. If you are their boss, you need to read this book. Promoting your business or organization with social media is critical in today's world and this book will make the road less bumpy."
