Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to Tell Your Story in a Noisy Social World by Gary Vaynerchuk

New York Times bestselling author and social media expert Gary Vaynerchuk shares hard-won advice on how to connect with customers and beat the competition. A mash-up of the best elements of Crush It! and The Thank You Economy with a fresh spin, Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook is a blueprint to social media marketing strategies that really works. 

When managers and marketers outline their social media strategies, they plan for the “right hook”—their next sale or campaign that’s going to knock out the competition. Even companies committed to jabbing—patiently engaging with customers to build the relationships crucial to successful social media campaigns—want to land the punch that will take down their opponent or their customer’s resistance in one blow. Right hooks convert traffic to sales and easily show results. Except when they don’t.

Thanks to massive change and proliferation in social media platforms, the winning combination of jabs and right hooks is different now. Vaynerchuk shows that while communication is still key, context matters more than ever. It’s not just about developing high-quality content, but developing high-quality content perfectly adapted to specific social media platforms and mobile devices—content tailor-made for Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Tumblr.

This book actually DOES live up to the hype. Gary explains the mechanics of the different platforms, which is awesome. I'm more practical and hands-on, so general concepts still leave me confused when it comes time to implement. Thankfully, Gary backs up everything he says with visuals and case studies. But what's really incredible here is that he highlights what TO do and why it works - with examples - but also what NOT to do, along with ads that have made those mistakes. All in all, very solid, practical road map to using the various platforms. I'll be using quite a few of these strategies with my own clients.

Many books hint at what to do, but this book actually shows real world examples of what to do (and what NOT to do, as well). The book was easy to follow, and gave clear examples of what to do to help market in a smart way on today's social media. For some reason B&N won't let me create as pen name, and errors out, so I have to post 'anonymously.' Roland Denzel

Gary did a great job and packed very useful information into a quick read. I learned from it and look forward to implementing some of the lessons.
