If you know Tamar Weinberg, you know, she knows, social media.

If you don’t know Tamar Weinberg, then when I tell you she’s the community and marketing manager for Mashable–the #1 social media blog in the world–you’ll believe that she knows social media. 🙂

So, you’ll probably want to jump on this opportunity to win one of 3 copies of her fantastic new book The New Community Rules: Marketing on the Social Web.

As the book promises, it will help you:

  • Explore blogging and microblogging, and find out how to use applications such as Twitter to create brand awareness
  • Learn the art of conversation marketing, and how social media thrives on honesty and transparency
  • Manage and enhance your online reputation through the social web
  • Tap into the increasingly influential video and podcasting market
  • Discover which tactics work — and which don’t — by learning about what other marketers have tried

You in?

That’s all you need to do! And, if you don’t win, you can grab a copy from

  • Cheryl

    Wow – I am starting a new job next week and this would be sooo much help! I’ve been participating in social networking for ages (personally I’m an early adopter) but still struggling with its effectiveness as a business marketing tool and could use a little extra help!

  • I was wondering what all this hub-bub about social media was all about. Your book looks like a great place to start. When you say ‘social web’ do you mean that all of these social things are on the interweb? whoa. 🙂

    Social media is an amazing thing, it is making it so much easier to get your message out on any variety of topics. I believe it also contributes to the shortening of the attention span of people as a whole.
