“Communication with people where they are and treating them as human beings is the main message throughout “It’s Not About You: It’s About Bacon.” In fact, there’s something for everyone in this book. Whether you’re a foodie who loves bacon, an animal-lover, a baseball fan, or a Disney-lover, you’ll find a metaphor in this book that speaks directly to you about relationship marketing. That is exactly what makes this book a perfect model for what Brian Basilico explains in this fun, yet packed-solid manual on using social media, marketing and getting results. Highly recommended!”

“Brian Basilico is a man I know, like and trust.  His new book will teach you exactly what, why and when to use social media.  Just as he has taught me over the past 6 years. This book’s techniques are proven and steadfast using brain-based technologies that every person uses every day whether they know it or not.  Brian will teach you — just as he has taught thousands of others — the magic of using social media to build relationships with your clients or customers, and dispel the myths of creating a brand image and how it actually works.
Relationships are built on knowing, liking and trusting.  Brian Basilico and “It’s Not About You, It’s About Bacon” is incredible.  Trust me, you will read it more than once!”
