Helping create a more likeable world using social media
Introduction
Dave Kerpen is the founder and CEO of the social media marketing firm, Likeable Media, and the author of the New York Times bestselling book, Likeable Social Media: How to Delight Your Customers, Create an Irresistible Brand, and Be Generally Amazing on Facebook (& Other Social Networks).

He founded Likeable Media as theKBuzz with his wife Carrie in the living room of their home in 2006. After five years of astounding growth and a name change, Likeable Media is now one of the leading social media marketing firms in the business with offices in New York City and Boston. Likeable’s clients include well known companies such as Neutrogena and 1-800-flowers.com.

Dave has also been a featured contributor on the leading social media news site, Mashable. Three of his articles were among the ten most shared articles in a one month period. Dave has also been featured on American Express OPENForum, Social Fresh, and SMM Magazine.

Prior to the founding of Likeable, Dave was a contestant on the the FOX reality TV show Paradise Hotel in 2003. He also reached cult fame among Boston sports fans as the Crunch n Munch Guy back in the late 1990’s.

What others are saying about Dave and Likeable Social Media

"Dave Kerpen’s insights and clear, how-to instructions on building brand popularity by truly engaging with customers on Facebook, Twitter, and the many other social media platforms are nothing short of brilliant."

Jim McCann, Founder of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM and Celebrations.com

"Dave gives you what you need: Practical, specific how-to advice to get people talking about you."

Andy Sernovitz, Author, "Word of Mouth Marketing: How Smart Companies Get People Talking"

“Likeable Social Media cuts through the marketing jargon and technical detail to give you what you really need to make sense of this rapidly changing world of digital marketing and communications. Being human—being likeable—will get you far.”

Scott Monty, Global Digital Communications, Ford Motor Company

“This book is not simply about using social media—it’s about creating a business that’s worth talking about. I more than like this book; I recommend this book for anyone who doesn’t want to get left behind in the evolving world of marketing.”

John Jantsch, author of Duct Tape Marketing and The Referral Engine
