Resources

“Social media is like teen sex.
Everybody wants to do it. Nobody knows how.
When it’s finally done there is surprise it’s not better.”

Avinash Kaushik, Google

We offer this list of resources for quick reference. Like all things on the Web, their location and relevance my change by the time you read this so please remember, Google is your friend. If you want to locate a reference whose link no longer works, try Googling it. And Google anything else you have questions on. The Web abounds with advice, not all of it good, so be careful out there!

The Best of the Best Pundits

These people inspired much of the thinking in this book. They really know their stuff.

Over the past two years, we’ve given you everything you need to build your social presence online — Fast! If you’ve enjoyed reading our book bit by bit on our blog, you may enjoy our lovely parting gifts:

  • A free PDF of the entire Be a Person – The Social Operating Manual for Enterprises book as published
  • A free PDF of our exclusive checklist,  The Social Media Performance Group Community Building Checklist™

When we are finished posting the resource lists and acknowledgements for the book, we’ll post these party favors on our community site (see URL below). Unfortunately, joining the community is not free – it costs a whole US dollar. This is because we had lots of spammers joining and having even a tiny fee keeps out the link harvesters.

So watch this blog for the announcement that the book and checklist are ready on our community. Of course, you may want to join right away anyway, just to be sure . . .

We’d like to hear from you, not only about what you think of our advice, but what you learn as you create your own social media practice. You can contribute by commenting on the Social Media Performance Group’s community Website at:
