Would you like to know how to launch and run an internal social network without falling at the first hurdles?
Internal social networks and social intranets are an efficient way to share information and collaborate inside companies. Yet most corporate social networks struggle to get off the ground or sustain the initial momentum.
One key problem is that corporate social networks like Yammer, Jive, Socialcast are treated as IT projects or approached as traditional intranet implementations.
They are neither.
In the book I draw from “softer” movement building and community management techniques that social champions have used both in big international conglomerates as well as smaller expert organisations.
There is no silver bullet for turning your organisation into a collaborative social business, but there are techniques that help you sow the seeds of change in a more fertile ground. You can make a big difference one small step at a time.
I like to offer my books with bonus downloads. At the moment those bonus downloads are cartoons (the book has a lot of cartoons) and they’ve proved very popular, but I might offer something else in the future.
So if you want the cartoons you might want to buy now!
Thanks, Virpi, for putting me out of a job! As a social media specialist, I’m often asked (particularly by B2B clients) for some tips on how they can get an internal social network to take hold and gain traction. Now, I can just recommend this e-book – it is, quite frankly, excellent. Well done!

The book is not going to help you magically turn your company into a fully networked “social business”, but it will help you build social inroads into the old system and speed up the process of change that will eventually turn your organisation into a truly networked enterprise. Hope you find it useful!
