Yeah, time to fix that!

We’ve got 3 copies of Brian Carter’s The Like Economy: How Businesses Make Money With Facebook to give away to Marketing Pilgrim readers. Barely two months old, Brian’s book is already garnishing high praise–and 5 stars–on Amazon. If you know Brian, you know that he’s a pro when it comes to Facebook marketing and in The Like Economy, he promises to provide:

  • Clear, up-to-date answers about how Facebook can help their companies make money
  • Specific guidance on using Facebook to support and supercharge existing marketing programs
  • Detailed insights for crafting Facebook programs that reflect their unique products, services, and customers
  • Key marketing and persuasion skills you can use across all of digital marketing
  • Up-to-the-minute techniques for attracting super-cheap, targeted clicks and fans with Facebook ads
  • Indispensable help with creating pages that repel negative “brand-bashers”
  • Proven solutions for increasing visibility, deepening customer interactions, and translating community into profits

    Best wishes,

  • With all the hype around Facebook’s IPO, and all the instant millionaire’s the IPO will create overnight, I’d love to read The Like Economy: How Businesses Make Money With Facebook. Have read a lot of the same old same old on this subject, and have not found a lot of new ideas circulating, would hope to learn something new from this book.
