ZimblerMiller Thanks to everyone who participated tonight. It was a great tweetchat!
Fraser @ZimblerMiller Thanks for hosting this. And I look forward to seeing you around the web :)
ZimblerMiller @beatccr @anniebody I’m so glad you both were here on this tweetchat. Having such users really helped the rest of us.
Fraser And make sure to follow @adaptiveblue for updates and play @glue_genie’s regular games to win free stuff (recently gave away a Kindle)
Fraser Just experience the best way to connect to the book community by adding www.getglue.com to your browser.
beatccr @ZimblerMiller lol @anniebody and I LOVE glue. i believe we’re among the top users (currently at least). It’s a great tool!
mysteries Thanks @ZimblerMiller @Fraser and everyone else. Very informative! (I guess I didn’t sit in the back of the room for very long!)
ZimblerMiller @fraser It’s 7 — any last words tonight?
Fraser @ZimblerMiller we totally agree! So do early users of Glue like @beatccr and @anniebody
ZimblerMiller @beatccr I have so much to try out. I really want to figure out the book marketing opportunities with glue.
ZimblerMiller @fraser April 20th Wall Street Journal article about how e-books will impact how people read; glue can do similar things.
beatccr @ZimblerMiller the replies version to the 2cent was the best new feature for me. it’s a fun way to communicate with others
Fraser @community think of Replies as a web-wide community around books (and this is the powerful part) across ANY popular book site
ZimblerMiller @fraser What does new version have that original version didn’t?
Fraser @ZimblerMiller we launched new version start of April. Already people love it. Here’s book blogger thoughts: http://bit.ly/jxNem
communitygirl @Fraser I’m all about community and you’re building it around books. I’m impressed with that feature. May need to interview you.
Fraser @communitygirl that’s our new connected conversations feature. Web-wide discussion about books. See how to reply: http://bit.ly/8jLl
ZimblerMiller @fraser When did glue launch?
ZimblerMiller We have about six minutes left. What else do we want to ask @fraser? And then I’m going to try out all these suggestions.
mysteries @anniebody … to promote my own review! (Which just happens to promote the author’s book.)
beatccr @communitygirl yes the replies function on the 2cents function is very cool
mysteries @anniebody Point taken. Still, I do reviews but don’t (yet) use Glue. I’m not sure I’d be offended if an author asked me …
communitygirl @Fraser Someone on getglue has responded to my 2cents on @sethgodin’s book and asked me a question. Already. I replied. Cool.
anniebody @ZimblerMiller I’d definitely add that, yeah. Sounds more friendly, & then you could convince them why Glue is awesome.
Fraser @ZimblerMiller the best way is to encourage them to get Glue from www.getglue.com/spread and add it if they don’t have it yet :)
ZimblerMiller @anniebody If I asked nicely and give you permission to say no, wouldn’t that be okay?
anniebody @mysteries would have to be convinced it’s a good idea, install it, etc. It’s a lot of work PLUS it just rubs me the wrong way.
ZimblerMiller @fraser So there’s a real advantage in getting lots of comments on glue — because it could put your book in the popular section?
ZimblerMiller @Fraser How can we tell if someone already has glue installed? The person could have glue but not on her/his blog.
ZimblerMiller @anniebody So I’ll add to my email: Would you be comfortable doing a 2cents …. with a link to your blog’s review?
anniebody @mysteries Yeah, but since I already have Glue installed I would have already put a link up, y’see? Someone who DOESN’T have Glue…
Fraser @ZimblerMiller it doesn’t do it in secret, here’s the most popular books on Glue glue://popular/books Great way to discover good stuff
ZimblerMiller Incoming links from authority sites are very good for SEO. So having links from glue to your blog would be good I would think.
mysteries @anniebody But it isn’t as if you, as a blogger, don’t benefit as well. Presumably you’d get return traffic. It should be win/win.
ZimblerMiller @anniebody A link to your own blog?
anniebody if we hadn’t already agreed upon it before. It seems kinda…intrusive? But if I was a FRIEND that’d be different, of course.
anniebody Also, as a book blogger I’d like to say that I wouldn’t appreciate authors emailing me asking me to put a link up somewhere
ZimblerMiller @Fraser Does glue secretly track which books have the most 2cents?
mysteries @beatccr Yes, but I’m thinking one could just as easily do that with 2 cents. Simplifies one’s life (just a bit).
Fraser @mysteries each book in your collection can have a link to your blog’s review for the book. Check out @beatccr’s http://bit.ly/jJ7uZ
mysteries @ZimblerMiller @Fraser mentioned collections when he was explaining “like”
Fraser @mysteries here’s a 90 sec video discussing collections: http://bit.ly/dBj80
beatccr @mysteries there are times when you just want to show that you enjoy the book/movie/actor without writing a review, just so others see it
ZimblerMiller @mysteries I don’t understand what you mean by collections.
communitygirl @ZimblerMiller Yes 2Cents. That’s the lingo for getglue right? Will have to remember that. @Fraser Thanks for the link.
mysteries Actually that’s not strictly true. I do understand collections, just not in the context of promotion.
anniebody @ZimblerMiller (butting in) Nope, there’s no negative feature to Glue.
Fraser @communitygirl 140 characters also makes it easy to share your 2cent comments to Twitter. Here’s how: http://bit.ly/qhJmv
mysteries @beatccr If like is “2 cents-lite” is there another creative use for it? I’m not sure I understand the collection concept. #glue -6:46 PM Apr 21st, 2009
ZimblerMiller In StumbleUpon you can actually hurt a post if you do thumbs up without a review. Is this true for glue also?
Fraser 90 second video discussing LIKES, COMMENTS, and REPLIES: http://bit.ly/CJVV3
ZimblerMiller @communitygirl By review do you mean 2cents?
communitygirl I just posted a review via getglue for the book Meatball Sundae by @sethgodin. I like the 140 character limit reviews.
ZimblerMiller @Fraser And there’s no review with LIKE?
beatccr @mysteries like is pretty much 2 cents, without the review
mysteries Or maybe more specifically, how does like differ from 2 cents?
Fraser @mysteries LIKE is a 1-click way to let people know that you like the book. It also saves it to your collection: http://bit.ly/oz0yk
mysteries OK @Fraser, now that we’ve discussed 2 cents, how does like work?
Fraser @communitygirl here’s a blog post that describes how authors are using Glue to promote their books: http://bit.ly/zpvU
ZimblerMiller @fraser And Glue works for CDs, DVDs, audiobooks, right? Anything else?
ZimblerMiller @mysteries I’m so going to do this. I knew there was some way to do book marketing with glue — I just couldn’t figure out how.
mysteries @ZimblerMiller That way, you both benefit. You get a book promoted more widely via the review and the reviewer gets visitors.
ZimblerMiller @fraser So if you were @communitygirl — when your book is published, how would you optimize the use of glue?
ZimblerMiller @mysteries Great — I’m using your wording.
mysteries @ZimblerMiller Right. Like a “Thanks for the review. Please visit (short URL) and leave your 2 cents with a link back to your review.”
Fraser @communitygirl Glue recognizes every book that exists on popular book sites. current list: www.getglue.com/sites
ZimblerMiller @mysteries So the link to a book blog can be hot, right?
communitygirl @Fraser So when my book publishes next month, how do I get it recognized on getglue?
ZimblerMiller @mysteries Oh, the 2cents has to come on the book’s page somewhere? Okay — a link is good.
mysteries @ZimblerMiller Yes. Something I learned tonight was that 2 cents allowed HTML.
ZimblerMiller @fraser What about putting the request on a book’s website? How would that work?
Fraser @ZimblerMiller Yes! There’s no other service that focuses on the BOOK rather than the specific website.
mysteries @ZimblerMiller Make it as easy as possible for the reviewer to do this. Provide links to Amazon or BN book page in your message.
ZimblerMiller And the book bloggers (whom I email) should like this idea because it brings traffic to their sites.
ZimblerMiller So anyone getting reviews now or on a virtual book tour should make this glue request an automatic part of her/his review pitch.
Fraser @ZimblerMiller their review left on Mrs Lieutenant will then appear for all Glue-rs when they visit the book on other popular book sites
ZimblerMiller @fraser — Good. I’ll use that graph with my email.
ZimblerMiller And link to their review of MRS. LIEUTENANT.
Fraser @ZimblerMiller there’s a great paragraph describing Glue on http://getglue.com
ZimblerMiller I’m going to email all the book bloggers who gave MRS. LIEUTENANT a really good review — and ask if they’ll do a 2cents for the book.
ZimblerMiller I’ve just had an idea for book marketing using glue. @Fraser — is there a one-paragraph glue explanation we can send people?
Fraser @ZimblerMiller you can find friends from a link on this page: http://getglue.com/help and spread Glue from www.getglue.com/spread
ZimblerMiller @Fraser This is automatic or do I have to go back to glue and say “find my friends on Facebook and Twitter”?
beatccr @ZimblerMiller on the RSS logo and enter the site you want.
ZimblerMiller For example, an author could send emails to her friends asking them to join glue and do a 2cents for her book, right?
beatccr @ZimblerMiller on your Glue profile, there’s a place you can add what sites you would like to put it on. I believe for blogs you click
Fraser @ZimblerMiller Glue uses your networks on twitter and Facebook to find your friendships on Glue. You don’t have to find the same people
ZimblerMiller @Fraser So your glue bar — the FRIENDS were from Twitter and not from glue?
Fraser An example of author on Glue: 1 comment left that appears on many sites http://bit.ly/weRZ http://bit.ly/9er6j http://bit.ly/YrMKS
mysteries @beatccr I’m getting the glue concept on books. I’m still missing something when it comes to blogs.
Fraser @communitygirl then you’ll see a filtered view – reviews from your Twitter friends will appear in Glue ahead of the other recent people
mysteries @beatccr I see how you’re using 2 cents. Do you use the like (heart) for anything?
ZimblerMiller @beatccr I could do that at www.FictionMarketing.com — how did you install?
ZimblerMiller I’m beginning to think it’s better to get friends to do 2cents reviews on Glue (and easier) than reviews on Amazon. Make sense?
communitygirl @Fraser I see the same reviews for @sethgodin’s book on B/N. What happens if I connect to my twitter friends there?
beatccr @mysteries @zimblermiller I also have the glue bar installed on my blog as well
ZimblerMiller @beatccr Since you’re advanced on glue, are there some add’l features you’d like to see?
mysteries @beatccr I see that. Good example of how you promote your site through Glue.
ZimblerMiller @beatccr Okay, I’ll study all your links you gave us here.
ZimblerMiller @fraser Let’s say I wanted to do a contest for MRS. LIEUTENANT. Could I leave a 2cents and people would learn about the contest?
beatccr @ZimblerMiller if you notice on the glue bar, and hover over my picture you see the same link to the review on my blog
Fraser @communitygirl here’s the same Seth Godin book on B&N – it’s the same Glue bar with the same people.
ZimblerMiller So I might use Glue to get noticed indirectly by reviewing other people’s books — people notice me and hopefully check out my book?
ZimblerMiller As @Fraser explained to me when we TALKED ON THE PHONE — I don’t have to go from place to place to see what he says about BOOK A.
beatccr @ZimblerMiller here is an example of a review I posted on two different sites http://bit.ly/paXSQ http://bit.ly/7y1fH
Fraser @ZimblerMiller exactly! Their review will be seen by every Glue-r regardless of what book site they visit.
Fraser @communitygirl You’ll see Glue on MANY book sites. If a friend visits BOOK A on Amazon you’ll see their review on Shelfari, LT, B&N
ZimblerMiller @fraser So if someone wants to get noticed through Glue by doing 2cents reviews — it would be the same as doing reviews on Amazon?
communitygirl I see @sethgodin’s book Tribes has 50 recent people listed.
Fraser @annibody @ZimblerMiller here are all of the sites that Glue recognizes: http://getglue.com/sites
communitygirl I just saw the getglue bar on top of the Amazon page with info about who viewed the book. Do you have to be logged in to Amazon?
ZimblerMiller @anniebody So how could I put the links to all my book’s reviews on to my book through Glue?
Fraser Here are two book bloggers talking about Glue @j_kaye http://bit.ly/FQecp and @beatccr http://bit.ly/3rG3Zd
anniebody @ZimblerMiller Right! As long as that site is registered in the Glue thingy. Like Amazon or B&N, etc.
ZimblerMiller @anniebody So anyone with the glue bar who visits BOOK A anywhere will see your 2cents and link to your review of BOOK A, right?
ZimblerMiller @anniebody — Yes, a link would be good.
mysteries @anniebody Yes, please.
anniebody @ZimblerMiller Would you like a link to one so you can see?
Fraser Example: visit this book on Amazon http://bit.ly/11EL4f + Glue will show you the same people who visited it on B&N http://bit.ly/JJ07k
ZimblerMiller @fraser Can I translate for us non-geeks? The book comments can be anywhere and yet all are visible from, say, Amazon screen.
anniebody @ZimblerMiller What I do is go to a book, do a 2cents about it (including a link to my review), & then people follow it to my blog.
ZimblerMiller @beatcor Good. I have Glue — so when I check my novel on Amazon (MRS. LIEUTENANT) I see the glue bar at the top of my screen.
Fraser Introduction: Glue recognizes the unique book you’re visiting + connects friends through the common book, regardless of the site
beatccr @ZimblerMiller yes I can tell you how I’ve used it after @fraser shows the tutorial
Fraser @miriamparker Glue recognizes specific (popular) book sites and connects friends around the same book, regardless of the site visited
anniebody @beatccr @ZimblerMiller Same here! It’s brought people to my blog, for sure.
ZimblerMiller @beatcor Can you give an example of how you use glue?
communitygirl I just installed it, now I have to restart Firefox. I’ll be right back to the tweetchat.
beatccr @ZimblerMiller I’m a book blogger and I’ve been using Glue to promote the books I’ve reviewed on my blog. It’s been really great
ZimblerMiller @fraser And will you answer @miriamparker’s question as we go along?
ZimblerMiller @fraser And then an hypothetical example of how to use glue to actually PROMOTE books.
Fraser @ZimblerMiller and then I’ll provide example links and we can take a tour and discover how Glue works and the benefits of the product. #Glue -6:06 PM Apr 21st, 2009
Fraser @ZimblerMiller Great idea! Glue is easiest understood by trying it out. If you’re on Firefox go to www.getglue.com and add Glue
miriamparker I installed glue on my other computer. I am always surprised when it pops up. Why does it only track a few sites?
ZimblerMiller @fraser Give us an example of browse popular sites. Take a specific book and let’s walk it through the process.
ZimblerMiller @Fraser — so we ADD glue to our browser and it stays there while we do other things, right?
Fraser Glue is a product of @adaptiveblue (@alexiskold is CEO/Founder)
Fraser @ZimblerMiller www.getglue.com is a browser addon that works
automatically as you browse popular sites about books
ZimblerMiller It’s 6 in LA so I’m going to start by introducing Fraser — the getglue.com expert.
Buyers in Australia get more remedies per man than any other country. The diversification of medications marketed by companies is no doubt a contributing matter to prescription medicament abuse epidemic. At present more than half of men aged over 50 reported some degree of erectile difficulties. Have a question about Cialis and levitra 10 mg? Let’s find answers to most pop questions about side effects of Cialis. While ED is more common among older men, that doesn’t make it ‘normal’. Most likely each man knows about levitra 10mg. Other problem we are going to is levitra 20mg. Orgasm troubles can usually indicate problems elsewhere. If you would like advice about Cialis, one of pharmacists will make accessible medicines that are suitable for you to take. You will then be able to buy the physic.
