Ebook Review: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, A QuickStart Guide

In this review we're going to look at an ebook from Christine Giri from Time Tamer Consulting. Why? There are a lot of social media gurus selling ebooks so we wanted to check out what's out there and see if we can recommend one or two for our members - this is our first and we hope to have more on the way!

(If you have written a good social media ebook and would like us to review it, please contact us here.)

Ebook Review: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, A QuickStart Guide

There are 2 versions of the ebook available:

  1. Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn: A Quick-Start Guide for Entrepreneurs
  2. Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn: A Quick-Start Guide for Virtual Assistants

Both retail for USD $24.99. We reviewed the Entrepreneur version, which is 65 page PDF (5.7MB) download.

In this ebook, Giri concentrates on introducing the key tools around the big three of social media; Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and provides a systematized approach to using them. (more…)
