Overview

Presenting a fresh perspective on a common challenge, author Scott Levy delivers a new answer to every business owner’s social media question — how can I make social media work for me? Levy’s solution takes a cue from another explosive media phenomenon: reality TV. Levy invites you to create the same magnetism that pulls reality TV viewers in by using the same tools: transparency, authenticity, and a human element.

Learn how to use social platforms such as Twitter to tactfully share, or bare, your brand, inciting consumer action. Also learn how to strip your social media strategy down to what works for your brand, exhibit transparency that engages followers on all popular social channels, and create brand consistency across all social platforms. Other topics cover engineering positive brand impacts and avoid devastating damage, using crowdsourcing and retweets, and lifting a brand from relative obscurity to significant popularity.

Real-life examples relate well-known business brands such as Sharpie and Jet Blue, and personal brands such as NFL Runningback DeAngelo Williams. Discover exactly what it takes to seduce the masses and turn them from passive followers into brand champions and loyal brand buyers.
