Do you need the new book "Social Media Metrics"? Here are some straightforward facts to help you decide.
ClickZ attracts a sophisticated audience. If you're like three-fourths of online marketing sophisticates, you don't need my new book "Social Media Metrics: How to Measure and Optimize Your Marketing Investment" which starts shipping from places like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Borders.
If you're like me, you want to know the main point of the book right up front so you can:
I tend to fall into category three more often than not. Don't get me wrong, Steve Krug's "Don't Make Me Think" is a wonderful book. But if you understand the title, you have what you need to design a great Web site. "The Long Tail"? Yep, I get it.
So, what is my latest about and do you need it? Here's the whole book in a nutshell:
Now that you know what the book is about, you might not need to read it. But here's a thought. Give it to your boss. And her boss. It will give them a sense that this weird, shiny new toy that they don't understand has business value that can be quantified. Then you can start the conversation inside your company.
And finally - yes, there is a business application for Chatroulette, but it came out after the book was printed so it's not in the book at all. And by the time I write the next one, it'll be obvious to everybody.
