Even though I’m an author, I have to admit that I seldom give reviews for non-fiction books. Especially books I bought to help me with my writing or marketing. *hangs my head in shame.* There are hundreds of books telling us how to market ourselves on Facebook, Twitter, you name it. Most are disappointing. So when I was asked to give this book a review, I have to admit I was a little dubious. After all, what more can be said? I was pleasantly surprised to discover I was wrong.
I’ve been on twitter for almost 4 years. It was the first social media platform I tried when I started publishing my books. I spent hours building up a following, just by following whoever followed me. Then I got on Facebook and sorta let Twitter slide into the sidelines. I still tweeted, especially in retweet groups, but I kinda ignored it. I’d read several books about Twitter and how to manage your account, but none of them compare to the #Artoftwitter.
Daniel Parsons spells everything out in an easy to understand format. He touches on subjects never discussed in other books. Like Hashtag Games, and using MangeFilter to streamline your followers and who to follow. I already had a ManageFiler subscription, but never knew the full potential of the program. This book has also made me rethink my strategy on twitter and I’m looking forward to implementing some of the changes he suggests.
Whether you’re a novice or a long-term user of Twitter, I’m sure you’ll find some useful information in this book. I give it a well-deserved 5 twitter bird feathers.
