I hope you’ve already ordered your copy of Radically Transparent: Monitoring and Managing Reputations Online. Judy Strauss and I really did work hard to ensure the book is packed full of proven advice and tactics.

To really make sure it’s a best seller, we approached a number of experts and asked them for their advice. Thanks to the following for so openly sharing their best strategies for online reputation management or writing stellar books that we pulled their advice from.

(Note: Some quotes were pulled from existing interviews)

  • I think everyone’s eyes will stop at Steve Jobs. How did you manage that?

  • This looks like an all-star roster. The Jobs reference is huge! Nicely done.

  • Jordan McCollum

    I have arrived!!

  • Yeeha. Thanks for the mention (and the mention in the book!) Andy. Good work on the reputation panel at SMX too…

  • This online reputation thing could become a nightmare! If you advertise in Yellow Pages, as many small business owners do, then you open yourself up to a can of worms. Anybody can go to your Yellow Pages add and post whatever they want, anonymously. Anybody includes your competitors . . .

  • @Dan see footnote 😉

  • Haha thanks Andy. If you had interviewed him I think a lot of reporters would be very jeleous, especially Fake Steve Jobs (Dan Lyons). 🙂

  • Andy,

    Thanks for quoting my book. Judging from the list of people above, Radically Transparent looks like a great resource. I’ll definitely check it out.

  • What a list! I feel like a kid on the way to Disney Land. Looking forward to the book arriving and checking out the E ticket rides! Great webcast with AMA in delivering your 7 Steps to a Stellar Online Reputation. (You didn’t sneeze or hack once with your cold!) You made it “doable” without being overwhelming.

  • Thanks, Andy. I guess I have to buy a case for my friends! And one for my mom.

  • @Dana – thanks, the mute button was my friend. 😉

    @Andy – don’t forget another case for future generations! 🙂

  • The list is too compelling to put off ordering it any further!

  • Can’t wait for it to arrive! Come on Amazon – it was pre-ordered months ago…

  • Andy–Looks like a great book, and I’m going to forward it around to our corporate clients and my colleagues, maybe do a quick review on my blog later. Great idea to list all the names (You might consider putting the Chapter names besides the experts, along with chapter #s–this a great promotional idea (not surprised you thought of it).
    Good luck

  • @Mark – thanks for the feedback. The link in the post goes to a spreadsheet with all the chapter numbers. 😉

  • Done. Also see my post: Books on Social Media Marketing

  • @Mark – thanks! Sometime in the Summer, I plan to list my top 10 business books in a post. Stay tuned.
