Social Media Expert Ric Dragon Launches New Book “Social Marketology” at Blog World NY

New York, NY, June 09, 2012 --( Social media expert and CEO of digital marketing agency DragonSearch ( Ric Dragon will launch his latest book, “Social Marketology,” today at Blog World NY conference at the Jacob Javits Conference Center, where he is also a featured speaker. The social media book, published by McGraw-Hill, provides companies with a framework with which they can create a process framework for their social media activities and improve engagements with their customers.

Dragon is a sought after speaker and considered by many to be a social media guru with a unique ability to help companies achieve their overall marketing goals by using digital media tools effectively. “Social Marketology” is his second book, his first a Mc-Graw Hill published e-book, “The DragonSearch Online Marketing Manual.” Dragon, who founded the DragonSearch digital marketing agency in 2007 with partner Don Tallerman, has focused on the future of social media in his writing because he sees it as a “here-to-stay” element of any marketing program.

A Unique Approach to Social Media Marketing Process and Strategy
By outlining a framework around which a focused social media campaign may be constructed, “Social Marketology” provides a concrete method for marketing through social media that is also flexible enough to be adapted to the social media platforms of today and tomorrow.

“Creating a social media strategy is a step many overlook because they are so eager to jump into these relatively new marketing tools,” said Dragon. “Social Marketology helps companies establish a social media process that starts with their desired outcomes, those elements that will determine the company’s long term success. In the book, I take a lot of time detailing the upfront work that needs to be done before a company posts its first Facebook message or sends its first Tweet.”

While many social media marketing strategies offer little beyond establishing an online presence and some “tips and tricks” for particular platforms, “Social Marketology” draws off a more holistic body of knowledge that incorporates social media within in the context of larger organizational goals. By the end of this book, marketing executives will have the knowledge to implement an effective social media marketing campaign that is testable, controllable, and fully integrated within broader campaigns and goals.

Dragon will introduce the new book at the Blog World NY conference on June 7 during his presentation: “Social Marketology: Process in Social Media Marketing.” A book launch party was held, June 6, at TheLabNYC in Manhattan.
