Sally Chow with her copies of Sociable!
Sociable! is a new book by local Vancouver bad boys, Shane Gibson and Stephen Jagger. According to Shane and Stephen, it’s not who you know but who knows you in today’s hyper-connected marketplace. Understanding the rate social media and social networking play in this new dynamic, is paramount to our success as professionals in our field. Sociable! shows how to make social media work for you.
Shane Gibson is a professional sale trainer. Stephen Jagger is founder of Ubertor, a website management service for real estate agents. Both used and continue to use social media to grow their respective brands to the top of their fields. Shane and Stephen spent that past 11 months writing Sociable! Inside the book you will learn:
- The new rules of engagement in sales and marketing
- How anyone can become a global brand in their niche using social media
- Strategies and tips on influencing online “Thought Leaders”
- The top social media and networking tools for today and beyond
- How to effectively implement and rollout social media in your organization
Sociable! is available right now at Amazon.com for $25. You can download chapter 1 to get a preview or if you’re lazy and don’t like reading, you can listen to the MP3 audio version. I am in the book but not on Chapter 1, so you’ll have to buy it to find out what I had to say.
