Studying the impact of innovation on business and society

Now is Gone Celebrates First Anniversary

On November 13th, 2008, Geoff Livingston and I quietly celebrated the bookversary of Now is Gone, one of the first books that tackled the subject of social media and new PR strategies for corporate marketers and communicators.

As Geoff pointed over out at LivingstonBuzz, the book has earned tremendous milestones:

– Thousands of people have read the book

– We’ve received hundreds of thank yous from folks who said it changed their business life

– Now Is Gone received more than 50 positive reviews

– Thanks to Scott Monty, it was cited by the Wall Street Journal as a resource for small businesses

– The book took the silver medal in the Axiom Business Book Awards

Now Is Gone helps businesses embrace Social Media realistically, intelligently, and authentically as an extension to their corporate marketing initiatives. Readers learn how to participate in social media from how to listen, how to learn and adapt, and to how to engage over time. In addition to sharing best practices, the book also features case studies that demonstrate corporate successes.

If you haven’t read the book yet, Now is Gone is available on Amazon for ~$10.

    Congrats! I discovered you and your work via Twitter and am a fan. May your first book and all others enjoy long life.

    FWIW, I knew I was a “real” author when my first book about working from home (way back in 1998 was reissued and then remaindered. Copies of Tips for Your Home Office are available on amazon for a penny! Oddly enough, this cheers me up.

    Thank you Meredith, I really appreciate that!

    Congratulations to you as well!

    I’m really excited for the next book, “Putting the Public Back in Public Relations.” It doesn’t ship until early 09, but it’s on Amazon now:
