Facebook marketing experts Chris Treadaway and Mari Smith will include a crowd-sourced chapter for the upcoming second edition of their best-selling Facebook Marketing: An Hour a Day book. The online marketing community and fans of the first edition can contribute questions by including “@FacebookMktg” in a Tweet or by posting directly to the Facebook Page for the book at http://www.facebook.com/marketingbook.
“We received great feedback from the community since the book launched in May,” said Treadaway. “We thought it would be a great idea to open up an entire chapter in the next edition of the book to everyday marketers who are increasingly using Facebook to reach and interact with customers.”
Treadaway and Smith will launch the initiative during a “flash chat” event on February 11 at 11am Pacific Standard Time (UTC -8:00) on the book’s Facebook Page at http://www.facebook.com/marketingbook. The crowd-sourced chapter will feature the 10 best questions submitted by the community, which the authors will answer in detail.
“Facebook is absolutely the next generation internet; there is a vast amount of potential revenue on the table for businesses today if they could only fully integrate the breadth and depth of all that Facebook offers,” said Smith. “Chris and I want to tap even deeper into the challenges, needs and desires of the marketplace so we can provide our suggested solutions and make the second edition of our book even better than the first!”
The best-selling first edition of Facebook Marketing: An Hour a Day shows readers how to develop, implement, measure, and optimize a winning Facebook marketing campaign. The second edition is expected in late 2011.
“By tapping into the online community to contribute to the second edition, the authors are illustrating the type of creativity that marketers can utilize on Facebook and other social media platforms,” said Sybex Publisher Neil Edde. “It’s the type of virtuous circle that benefits businesses and customers alike.”
