Paul Gillin’s “Secrets of Social Media Marketing” Gillin, author of the best-selling book, “The New Influencers: A Marketer’s Guide to the New Social Media,” gave us a few signed copies of his latest release, “Secrets of Social Media Marketing: How to Use Online Conversations and Customer Communities to Turbo-Charge Your Business!” to give away.

Paul’s first book was highly praised by readers, and this one has already gotten a ton of rave reviews.

About the book:

Secrets of Social Media Marketing is a handbook for marketers and business owners to use in deciding how to employ the new social media for online marketing. Social media has quickly moved from the periphery of marketing into the forefront, but this is a new and quickly-evolving field and there are few established formulas for success.

Building on the lessons set out in Gillin’s acclaimed and oft-reviewed The New Influencers: A Marketer’s Guide to the New Social Media, this book provides practical advice on strategy, tools, and tactics. It is a hands-on manual that will educate marketers on how to extend their brands, generate leads, and engage customer communities using online tools.

Congratulations to our contest winners: Tara Greco, Emily Luiz, Rickey Gold, Andy Swindler, Cammie Morrow, Windy May, Jennifer Keltner, Stefanie Schodrof, Rachel Bell, Carla Schlemminger.

And thanks to everyone for the word of mouth!
