Social Media Book Club June Selection: The Now Revolution


We are introducing our June Book of the Month, The Now Revolution: 7 Shifts To Make Your Business Faster, Smarter, and More Social by Jay Baer and Amber Naslund. 

We asked ten of our Professional members and chapter leaders to read and review The Now Revolution on behalf of Social Media Club, here are some of their main takeaways,

Jay and Amber have managed to put together the type of nonfiction book that I like to read. I mean, actually read from cover to cover. It’s well thought out and I couldn’t really find any fluff; this book has a whole lot of content. The diction is high enough to avoid being unnecessarily condescending, yet low enough to remain easily understandable. Illustrations and graphics are used sparingly but with real purpose, although most should have been designed with black and white printing in mind.

Naslund and Baer also put to rest the age old argument as to who (ex. Marketing, PR, Customer Service, etc.) should own a social media initiative within an organization: everyone. They then go on to instruct how to build a strong team of talent that can execute successfully while complimenting each other.
