“Social Media is a Cocktail Party” climbs to Amazon Best Seller List.

Local Authors Share Success with Make-A-Wish Foundation

[Cary, NC] - Jim Tobin is celebrating more than Thanksgiving this week. His new book “Social Media is a Cocktail Party,” which came out last week is enjoying success right out of the gate -- climbing to Amazon’s Best Seller list and ranking #51 among all marketing books (out of 51,000). As of today the book is ranked #18 in sales among all social media marketing books.

According to Tobin and co-author Lisa Braziel, “Social Media is a Cocktail Party…Why you already know the rules of social media marketing” helps corporate marketers who are charging into the unfamiliar waters of social media understand the strategy, tactics, rules and etiquette of marketing on the social web.

“I’m thankful to all those who bought the book,” says Tobin, President of Ignite Social Media. “But perhaps most importantly, we raised a significant amount of money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation by donating $3 for every book sold during our virtual launch party.”
