Mobile Media Books I’d Like For Christmas

The world keeps changing faster than I can keep up. I have recently identified three books, that I think I should read, and would recommend to anyone who is shopping for a internet marketer, or local business owner who likes to stay in front of the major trends.

The biggest of which, we have all seen already but not fully appreciated and that is Mobile. The move has just started, and its multiple profound impacts are yet to be seen, but hey will be.

We may really be at the beginning of something that will be even more radical than television when it first came on the scene and even the pc revolution that took a decade plus to spawn the internet and the many giants that have followed in the aftermath.

I took some time off the afternoon to do some Christmas Shopping at the Mall of America, and checked out Barnes and Noble. They had only one of the titles and no special pricing. So If I don’t get these in my Christmas stocking, I will do what I usually do and order them from Amazon.

The books are:

Social Location Marketing

Mobile Marketing 101

The Third Screen

I have begun to develop mobile websites for myself and will soon be doing them for clients. The next step for me is to develop aps, and I now know what I need to do to get that business running. The how to is critical of course, but understanding the width and breath of the coming revolution is at least as important.  That’s why these particular books are on my list, and why I would recommend them to you.

How can I recommend books, I haven’t yet read? Well that’s just part of the coming revolution. I have a network, I know and trust and they have advised me of the top three I need to read.

And that will happen again and again and again and again in the emerging mobile world. Now is the time to see the future and prepare for its many opportunities.

Discover How to Harness The Power Of LinkedIn For Your Business

It’s hard to keep up with all the social media sites out there.

Linked In is by far the more powerful vehicle, if you are in business. If on the other hand all you want to do is share photos and chit chat with friends, the winner is clearly Facebook.

Unfortunately, in my travels, I’ve discovered that while a lot of people have set up Linked In profiles, many are pretty confused about how to maximize the power of LinkedIn properly.

There are a lot of Linked In Books For Sale and I encourage you to grab a copy and study one or another.   I particularly recommend Neal Schaffer’s work on the topic.  But any of the top listings on Amazon are probably well worth reading.

But if your reading list is already too long, I have prepared a concise five part crash course on Linked In you can subscribe to for free.
