Twitter Survival Guide

twitter-survival-guide.jpg I spent some time today reading a good little ebook resource by the name of The Twitter Survival Guide.
This 94 page ebook is written by Bob Walsh and Kristen Nicole from MultiSocialMedia. It combines some teaching on the basics of Twitter with interview insights from 12 Twitter users including Guy Kawasaki, Steve Rubel, Gary Vaynerchuck, Marshall Kirkpatrick and myself.
Sections in the ebook are:

1. Why should you care about Twitter?

2. Twitter: What, How, Where and Why?

3. Creating your twitter presence: A checklist.

4. Twitter Tools.

5. Where does Twitter start and blogging end?

6. What can you do with Twitter?

7. Twitter Power Profiles.

8. Conclusions.

The ebook is up to date and comprehensive. It’s a great introduction to anyone starting out with twitter – particularly those wanting to use Twitter for branding or some other aspect of a business.

The ebook is $24.95 so not for everyone – but for those wanting a crash course in Twitter it’s a great place to start.

    A 94 page book to use a 140 character communication medium?

  • December 23, 2008

    Cool stuff. Anyway we can get some snippets of how the book is written without buying it for $24.99 straight up?

    Interesting–what did you write about in your section, Darren? It’s obvious (from this blog!) that you’re a fan of Twitter.

    I am using it a bit myself (and having fun learning more about it) but keep wondering if it’s a passing fad or a long-term traffic-generation strategy. The daily effort required to do updates, though not a lot, makes it appeal to me less than basic SEO link-building strategies which continue to pay off years after undertaken.

    I bought this book last week and yeah it is great for any novice.

    I might be cynical, but why would anybody pay money for an e-book containing information that is very easy to obtain for free?

    Hell, I would be suprised if they have anything to say, you haven’t said right here on this blog!

    I’m still attempting to learn the ropes of Twitter and find that it has SO MANY uses! I’ll look into the book; thanks, Darren!

    Does this post relate to the post on ProBlogger about being half internet marketer and half blogger to monetize a blog?

  • December 23, 2008

    I will definitely be reading this. I do not know how much I really can learn because it does all take time and I have been doing almost all the tips people are saying to do.

    Just may have to pick that up! We had a twitter tutorial a few months ago on learning the basics and what twitter is exactly. This may be a quicker catch up for all the newbies!

    Why one should spend $24.99 to read what you get for free at Twitips? Beside there is so much out there that you need not spend money to learn about twitter.

    Than you for the book. and pots.

    @Sinking Cities – “Does this post relate to the post on ProBlogger about being half internet marketer and half blogger to monetize a blog?”

    With an affiliate link to buy the book, it’d be a good guess :)

    Some of the information in the book may be “known” to many but don’t forget that there are always people out there who will pay to have access to info which we may take for granted. For the general public/non-twitter users/those just starting…everyday Twitter users out there are basically experts in the subject.

    tweets ,
    you have to remember that you are paying people in the business for information at your finger tips. I imagine that there is going to be a lot of good suggestions but the key seems to be “be there.” IN FACT, the goal of using twitter is being present. You can think of it like a father daughter here it is:
    1) no matter what, always listen first to understand
    2)ask open ended questions to get to know her
    3) you respect her and her ideas no matter how silly they are
    4) she knows that she is loved
    5) she knows she can ask you any question without first receiving a judgmental response
    6) she trusts you because of your history
    7) be there, be there, be there, and oh BTY: ALWAYS be there!!!
    8) share what you’re doing and a little bit of your heart. She wants to know her dad you know.
    9) Even if she seems like she’s ignoring you, keep talking and spending time b/c she just wants to be sure your serious

    I need a number 10! Anyone have any suggestions. I know there are a fews dads with daughters who can add at least one thing. And I can’t forget daughters. Daughters what would you add?
