The Social Employee @SocialEmployee is an Amazon Best Seller!
One underlying theme in our book The Social Employee: How Great Companies Make Social Media Work, available now through McGraw-Hill, is the idea that establishing real connections with real people matters. While some have feared that the advent of social media would depersonalize and dehumanize both professional relationships and friendships, we’ve found the opposite to be true.
Everyone has something to sell in the digital bazaar, and the only way to sort through the tangle of data, branding messages, and calls to action is to find a community of people you trust. As members of these communities, we share what we learn, pass on the good, and steer each other away from the not-so-good. Without these authentic voices to help guide us through, any one of us could get lost in this digital maze rather quickly.
As a community, we amplify each other’s voices, working to drive social change in the marketplace as one unified voice.
So, it is with that spirit of gratitude that we are honored to celebrate the release of The Social Employee with so many of our trusted colleagues. Our new trailer puts the people who helped make this book possible front and center, letting their words speak not only for the ideals shared in our book, but for the ideals that we feel define our community.
