Industry Reviews:

From all my experience dealing with the media, I must say that Jon is best of class. After talking with Jon and then being interviewed on-air by him, I would recommend him to anyone. He is thoughtful, curious, affirming, intellectually stimulating, and superbly well-informed. I’ve come away from every conversation with Jon feeling energized and looking forward to the next one. I’m rushing now to buy his book, and I encourage others to do the same.

I’ve done a ton of radio in my career as an executive coach, branding expert and author. Being on air with Jon Hansen is one of the most engaging, dynamic and enjoyable media experiences I’ve ever had!

When I first spoke with Jon to discuss my upcoming guest appearance, that could have been a show in itself. He’s got an amazing depth of curiosity, intellectual appetite for ideas and, yep, an old-fashioned gift of gab that make talking with him an absolute joy.

To top it off, he does his background research. Jon studies his topic, he prepares his material, he knows what he wants to talk about. Unheard of! Especially in this era of quick-hit, fast-food information nuggets.

To say you can learn about radio from Jon’s new book is a total understatement. What Jon can teach you about connecting with your audience is truly life-changing. Read it and share your message. But only after you’ve done your homework!

Jon’s book is NOT a technical manual on starting your own podcast; there are plenty of those available. In ’Your Show Will Go Live in 5 Seconds’ Hansen shares his experience as one of Blog Talk Radio’s most impressive success stories and how you can do it too! His focus is on the show and more importantly, on the audience. Jon tells you how to develop a relationship with the audience by facilitating a sincere connection with your guests. ’Your Show Will Go Live…’ transcends podcasting; it’s a must read for anyone who aspires to the major leagues as a talk show host on any platform.

Jim Bouchard Speaker, coach & author of Dynamic Components of Personal POWER and Think Like a Black Belt Host of the Black Belt Mindset PowerPOD show –

Once, I read through the first 33 pages of ’Your Show Will Go Live in 5 Seconds’ I knew that I had in my hands, what I believe is destined to be a best seller…and most likely-suggested reading at many of the top international schools of broadcasting.

Jon, has the inherent ability to be able to communicate with his audience (in this case his readers) in a way that carries with it, experience, honesty and personal humor-all in a spirit of humility. His words come alive, and you feel…not only informed, but motivated and encouraged that you too…can be a successful Radio/TV Host.

His definition of a good host is “someone who always attempts to make the people around him, or her feel as comfortable as possible”. That is how I felt…while reading it, and I hope you will agree-while reading this book-from cover to cover.

Whether you are, a seasoned Public Speaker/Show Host, or…it is your dream to be the Host of your own Radio/TV Show, then you must own…this jewel of a book.

I personally agree with Jon, as he states in the forward…’that it is his sincerest hope that this book will in some small way help you to walk through your door of what will ultimately become your greatest adventure’.

Bradley A. Hensley, Radio/TV Show Host

I had the privilege of being interviewed by Jon last week. We had an interesting brief discussion prior to my going ′Live with JON′. What fascinated me initially was the fact that Jon was already asking intriguing questions, as if he had spent hours and hours conducting research on who I was, what I stood for and how we could relate. Jon has the unique ability to connect with his guests, from an intellectual level, emotional level, spiritual level and just plain down to earth level. His analogies and metaphors capture your attention as he validates what the speaker is talking about. Being interviewed by Jon was like watching a true artist at work. His book ′Your Show Will Go Live In Five Seconds′ is a testimonial to Jon′s brilliance on the topic of interviewing. Whether you have aspirations to host or be a guest, this book will provide you with pearls of knowledge, research and entertainment. After all, Jon′s style of writing will keep your attention beyond your expectations. Jon reiterates that you should focus on your own unique insights to provide perspectives on the topic. Regardless of the topic, Jon has this innate ability to understand what you are saying as if he has walked in your shoes. His gentle manner encourages a natural flowing conversation. His book reflects his inner core, his passion for his profession and his zest for entertaining his readers. What made the book even more enjoyable, aside from tons of tips, was that it reflected the core of Jon′s soul and his commitment to helping others succeed in this business. This book is a wonderful gift for anyone who shares the passion to communicate with others, on radio, on TV or live.

I’ve been in the publicity business booking interviews for clients going on 20 years, plus I co-host a radio talk show, and I’ve done many interviews. So I know both sides of the fence and can vouch for the tremendous professionalism and competency that Jon brings to his show. Even more important, my interview with Jon was fun with a great exchange of ideas and data. Also, the excerpt of Jon’s book shows he is very on track with insightful data about the talk show format and the use of the social media.

The Unsociable Business of Social Networks Now Available

Also available on-line through and Barnes & Noble

“So Act wasn’t created to build a better network. It was created to build a better world.” The above observation regarding the So Act network was of course mine, and it was incorporated into the October 27th, 2009 press release, in which the company made the announcement that I would be writing this book. So Act is truly “The 60 minutes of Social Networks” where you engage, mobilize and empower people into action.” Whatever the mission, cause, product, service, program, cure, or solution, So Act can help you expand your sphere of influence and crystallize forward thinking into positive action on a larger scale while harmoniously merging economic and socially conscious goals. At the end of this text I will hopefully have provided you with a balanced view of what may very well become the model against which all other social networks and revenue models will be measured.

Industry Reviews:

’So Act Already’ is a brilliant expose on the social media. Jon Hansen’s style is elegant, while remaining casual and engaging, making the difficult and expensive topic readily accessible to the reader. The book highlights one of the basic conundrums facing anyone who wishes to gain commercial advantage from using the Internet, be it selling a product or service directly, or developing a network to further one’s career; that being the challenge of monetizing your contribution to the wealth of information on the web. This book is a must read for anyone who is either presently engaged in the social media, or is planning to do so. These days that means just about everyone!’

John Berling Hardy Author ’The Hidden Game’

’Jon is thoughtful and thought provoking in equal measure. A natural connector and communicator, he is capable of assimilating and explaining complex ideas without making them complicated. The combination is rare and makes for compelling reading.

That he should align himself with So Act makes good sense. So Act makes explicit a profound truth about social technologies: they bring people together in communities of purpose, communities of people who care about the same thing. And when they find each other they have plenty to talk about, and when they talk, they act.

The social technologies we have come to know in the early years of the 21st century enable us to organise for ourselves, to fix the things we think are wrong, ourselves – without mediation and without central organisation. And that changes everything.

David Cushman Social Media Expert and Author, The Power of the Network

’Jon Hansen’s The Unsociable Business of Social Networks & Why the So Act Social Network Will Change the World is an entertaining and enlightening guide to the So Act network. A must read for anyone interested in social media for social change.’
