In this book, Rolando explains what he has done to build a high Klout score (the most recognized measure of on-line influence) and tips he feels helped him earn a coveted Twitter-verified blue checkmark on his personal account. You will learn how to use both Twitter and Facebook in your marketing and brand-building efforts. You will also learn how to gain followers, including celebrities and Twitter-verified accounts and how to get your name and message “shared” and “re-Tweeted” to millions of other users—all for less than four dollars!

Social media have revolutionized the way businesses interact with customers and potential customers. With a degree in Communication, Electronic media and over 30 years experience as a photojournalist, businessman and author, Rolando recognized the power of social media even before most people had heard of them. In “Socially Smart,” he explains what he has learned from actually using social media for networking and executing marketing strategies and studying the results. The book is filled with photos, screen captures, and real-life examples to illustrate these strategies as well as tips and techniques for using them effectively.
