Wondering about a field guide to transforming your organization into a social business? Check out SOCIALIZED! How the Most Successful Businesses Harness the Power of Social by Mark Fidelman.
Authored by Forbes.com writer Mark Fidelman, this 288-page “playbook” is designed to help businesses transform into high-performance social organizations by providing strategies, tactics and examples that companies can apply today to start increasing revenue immediately and for the long term. Filled with road-tested recommendations and real-life stories from visionaries and change makers, the book is designed to help business leaders create more adaptable, intelligent, profitable businesses.
Readers will learn how to create and nurture a high performing internal social network, or “digital village” that helps employees collaborate and share information internally as well as with customers, partners and suppliers. This book helps distinguish between social media participants vs. external social businesses who connect with their external “digital network” and build a community of brand advocates. Fidelman guides readers to manage “Darwin’s Funnel,” a sales and marketing channel with a social wrapper that speeds up lead nurturing and improves businesses’ ability to convert leads into sales.
