I liked being walked through the 101 to the 201 even though I had experience [with social media]. It's great to understand how the show gets built. The a-ha moments when things click together - especially how to properly share content - excellent. I much more confident about what to share / not share. Thanks!
Excellent book. Five stars. (From Amazon.)

Angela recently took part in a panel discussion on using social media to raise funds, for the Association of Fundraising Professionals. As an organizer for this event I was impressed with the depth of her knowledge on how to leverage tools like Facebook and Twitter in simple but very effective ways. The information she presented was accessible to both introductory and intermediate social media users. Angela was a very strong member of the panel and I am very thankful she was willing to share her time, experience and wisdom."
Angela Crocker is an amazing author! You simply must read her new book, "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Creating a Social Network"! Angela knows how to help you get "out of the peanutbutter" you find yourself stuck in when trying to create your online social media presence. She is fun, vivacious, knowledgeable and she knows how to get her point across without "geek talk". Angela keeps it so simple that "an idiot" can do it.
This [social media strategy report] is great to refresh my mind about
all that we talked about and learned from you. Now I see that we are
really just beginning... and to tackle even one little thing at a time
in the recommendations section will help get us moving forward.
On behalf of AFCA-BC (Association of Filipino Canadian Accountants of BC), thank you so much for a very effective presentation geared towards the needs of professional accountants. You demonstrated how our organization can use social media not only to increase our profile and web presence; but also as a communications tool within the group. And YES, our members are now signing up for our Facebook page, and are getting invitation to the next AGM through Facebook. Hurrah!”

Even before we sat down, Angela had a good sense of what my needs for social media would be and then she helped me focus on what I can do to create a social media routine that’s simple, easy to manage, and create the kinds of connections I need to grow my social network. I don’t feel overwhelmed anymore by the hype about social media – Angela cut through all that to what’s real.
Just wanted to thank you for your time and insight today. Being new to the social media world, your coaching session really clarified what Twitter is and more importantly, how to leverage its power to build my business. Prior to meeting with you, I was "tweeting" without really knowing what that meant; now I am tweeting with confidence which is already helping me attract new followers and potential clients. A big thank you for sharing your knowledge and tricks of the trade, it is truly appreciated and incredibly valuable!
Angela Crocker was my boss. That is a good thing. Her years of experience in marketing has made her my mentor (though I am substantially older than her) and I value her insight. The things I know about Angela is that she is hard working and oh, so loyal. She has a good eye and ear for what people need and can make things happen - she is a can-do kind of woman."
