Social Media for Business is 274 pages of insight, information and best practices with social media and Internet marketing for small businesses, micro-businesses and solo-professionals. Twenty contributors from the greater Raleigh, North Carolina area wrote chapters in their area of expertise and experience.
The launch for the Social Media for Business book is open to the public with a reservation at Eventbrite. http://smfblaunch.eventbrite.com/
It will be held between 6 and 8 pm at Raleigh's Center for Excellence at 3803‐B Computer Dr. Ste. 106 Raleigh NC 27609, just off Six Forks Road South, at the intersection of 440.
The event will feature Hors d'Oeuvres, non-alcoholic beverages, and a raffle for prizes. Prizes include a free Kindle, a social media consultation with Martin Brossman and Anora McGaha worth $350, and discounts on future social media and small business classes. Books will be for sale and the authors will be signing them, discussing the process of writing the book, and answering questions.
We will have a short presentation starting at 6:30 that will feature Anthony Policastro, the publisher at Outer Banks Publishing Group via Skype, acknowledgement of the book's contributors who are present, and a few select readings from the book.
"I love the competitive advantage that social media offers a small business that is truly connected with their customer," said Martin Brossman. "It's great news for small businesses."
"Working on this book with Martin Brossman was a great opportunity to distill what we'd been discovering both independently in our own work, and collaborating together in support of social media clients," said Anora McGaha.
Anora McGaha and Martin Brossman work together defining social media strategies and developing social media programs for small businesses. "It's very exciting to work closely with small business owners, helping them get to the core of who they really are, and finding ways to demonstrate that with the right multidimensional and multimedia Web presence."
Martin Brossman and Anora McGaha are finishing up a new four part course on social media for business to accompany the book. Look for dates on the book's Facebook Page mentioned below.
