This book includes what I've learned about putting video online: how to choose a camera, how to shoot interviews, and where to host. I also have step-by-step guides on how to put video online and how to go live. Also included are stories of how I've put video online and interviews with people who have been successful online.

Get Seen is one of several books in Wiley’s The New Rules of Social Media series, a bunch of high-quality marketing books from the pens of such big names as Kevin Nalts, Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah.

I would rate it as decently entertaining and informative – 8.1 / 14.0 Stars.

It was pretty apparent the intended audience was the more ”entry level” crowd simply because I understood most of it. :)

I am by no means an expert (and my videos absolutely stink in comparison to everything referenced in this book), but there were large portions of this book that were very easily “speed read”. I did grab some useful tidbits and hope to put them to good use. Check out my personal notes below from this boo
