I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting a live book talk on Shindig, a new customized video chat space for live events. We will be connected globally via webcam online, and can interact and participate in a live talk about Social Media Metrics. You can socialize with other participants, or watch and listen. The event will be June 20, 2012 at 6pm Eastern / 3 PM Pacific.

Here’s how it works. About 15 minutes before it starts go to the event link and log in (those who register using the link above will receive their log in instructions to their email). You should test your microphone and camera at this time. Then when the event starts we can get underway. We will have an interactive talk about Social Media Metrics, followed by a question and answer session. The talk is sponsored by Shindig Events.

The way to make this interesting and fun is to have A LOT of people in attendance. So please invite as many of your friends as you like to join us! Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter to as many people as you can.

Grab your web cams and get ready for a fun evening!

You Can Get Social Media Metrics for Dummies on Kindle Now!

You can grab a copy of Social Media Metrics for Dummies on your Kindle now (and elsewhere) – and I can even e-autograph it for you* – how neato is that?

I was not expecting the Kindle edition to be out until after the book drops on June 13, so I am very, very excited about this.

Lots of folks have been asking me about ebook availability, so this early release makes me happy.

I am told it will also be out in iBook format, etc. as well soon.

*There are no fees from me for the autograph, or from Amazon – unless you are a Kindle Personal document Service user – which means Amazon charges you a fee. That KPDF fee does not in any way go to me – it’s all Amazon.

I can e-sign Twitter for Dummies for you also, by the way. 😉

Metrics Tips: Google Analytics Apps Gallery

Google has a lot of hidden gems. Sometimes the best gems disappear (we really miss many toys found in Google Labs that have been deprecated, for example), but their Apps Gallery has staying power.

One of the tools I didn’t mention in the most recent book, Social Media Metrics for Dummies (available June 2012), is the Google Analytics Apps Gallery. This book is designed to teach you metrics fundamentals and get you started on your measurement journey, or to increase your skill set if you’ve been taking a DIY approach to metrics for a while. Once you’ve got some metrics under your belt, you might find some of the tools here helpful.

Even more important, however, is the ability to list your tool if you are an app maker building a tool around metrics.  That link takes you to the submission form to get your app listed in the Google Analytics App Gallery. From there, you want to try to get listed in Editor’s Picks – this is achieved by good reviews and good ratings of your app by users.

 

Social Media Metrics for Dummies: Ready for Pre-Orders!

That’s right, the book is finally WRAPPED and ready for pre-orders!

I am very excited to see my hard work hit shelves and I hope it helps folks learn about metrics and how to implement them in their social media and on their web sites.

I’m already starting to see the book appear in mentions around the web, and I appreciate the sharing and recommendations very much.

The official short link for the book is http://bit.ly/smmfd and the official hashtag for talking about it on Google Plus and Twitter is #SMM4D – I’ll keep the link updated to the best places to buy it as we go forward.

You can’t write a book in a vacuum, and I was able to include tips, tricks and tools from many metrics heavy hitters that I’m proud to call friends. This gives you a more well-rounded view of metrics, instead of a single “my way or the highway” approach. I am so looking forward to seeing the book on shelves, and will have a publication date for you soon. The publisher assures me that there will be ebook editions for all of the major devices as well.
