New book! The Listen Lady: A novel and social media research guide baked into one #MRX

listen lady social media researchHave you noticed how boring and complicated some textbooks are?  Have you spent night after sleepless night tossing and turning, desperately hoping someone would write a market research book that was fun to read? Have you been searching for something to help you learn more about social media research?

Then look no further!

The Listen Lady, a new book by moi, explains the technique of social media research in one of our favourite art forms – the non-fiction fiction novel! It covers advantages, disadvantages, sampling, data quality, variables, and more using plain language that business owners, marketers, and researchers can understand. And to lighten things up, it’s told as a story, not as a textbook. You can learn the technique for yourself by following along as a  small business owner learns the technique for herself.

Is it fun to read? Yes!
Is it easy to understand? Yes!
When can you buy it? Any day now!

    I’m so glad I stumbled across your blog! I’m currently enrolled in a research analyst postgrad program. For my major project, I wanted to focus on social media research, but was covertly discouraged by my professors’ feedback and advice on staying within the traditional methods. Not to diminish the necessity of learning the fundamentals of research first, but I’m glad I chose not to listen to the advice of changing my topic from social media research to something more “measurable”. Granted i’m in the early stages of my research (i.e. still formulating the question), but finding this book feels a bit like opening a gift on christmas!
    Looking forward to reading the book!!

    1. That is so kind of you!

      I’m glad to hear you’re pushing forward with a new methodology. I suspect the most important thing will be to recognize the pros and cons of the approach. Don’t try to make it fulfill every research need and don’t think that it is perfect. If you do that, then I think your professors will be pleased. Perhaps your professors aren’t well acquainted with the method so this could be your opportunity to help them learn.

      Good luck!

    No kindle version?

  3. Just finished it (appropriately enough, I read it mostly on my Blackberry using Mobireader). My day job is at a large MR firm, but I teach MR at a grad school and plan on using it next term. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    1. Great to hear! I’m glad you found it useful.
