The key to success on social media is to build a strong and consistent social media marketing plan: with ideas that drive brand awareness, attract loyal customers, and help you reach your business goals - like increasing website traffic, delivering top customer service, or making sales. And that's what you'll learn in 500 Social Media Marketing Tips.
As the title states, this is a workbook. It is not a broad book, desiring to change your viewpoint from which you will then build a strategy.

Apparently there is a rebate offer inside this book for writing a review of this book. The nice thing though, is it doesn't have to be good. You get the rebate regardless. So, I'll give it to you straight up:
Pros:The book is easy to follow.
It's great for beginners (if you are a beginner that's a pro)
It covers the main social platforms of today
There are a lot of noted resources for support
Cons:The book is only the basics
The book does not dive into how to make money using social media, just how to use it. For example, it talks about Pinterest, but not how you make money doing the things you're told to do. (At least not in great detail)
The how to use it is limited to one central idea. (For example, LinkedIn is all about building a profile, but nothing about advertising)
The book isn't digital. This book would be great in a digital format wherein you could interact with it, check out the many links, etc.
If I'm unfamiliar with a specific platform, this book gives me a great, fast into to that platform. The book is awesome if you're a one-man-marketing department with a need to quickly get up to speed. As a professor, I probably wouldn't use this book because of it's basic nature, but as an entrepreneur with a small business I see the application.
Most importantly, McDonald is super encouraging, and shapes your expectations (of the platforms and yourself in this work). His website has a huge amount of supporting pages which expand and personalize what the book provides.
