Business travelers who are lacking in something ‘worthy’ to read while catching yet another flight out of town now have cause to stop by Hudson News and pick up a copy of the widely acclaimed title The Social Media Business Equation™, the 2nd title written by acclaimed ‘@LinkedInQueen’ author Eve Mayer Orsburn.  Copies of the book will be available worldwide during a special promotion from September to November of 2011 at major international airports including: San Jose International, Miami International, Chicago O'Hare, Boston Logan, New York-LaGuardia, DFW, LAX, Denver International, and Portland International airports. This placement announcement accompanies a 2 day ‘Release Party’ media schedule that includes both virtual and live events. Fans of the work will have several unique opportunities to interact with the author who adores her ‘social connections’ so much that she personally thanks 35,000 Twitter followers at the book’s conclusion.

Regarding her new title and the virtual release, Orsburn says "Social media, connectivity, and developing a targeted strategy that help a product or service builder stronger relationships with a specific audience served as the inspiration for why I decided to create this second title.  It was important to me that the readers know there is a concise and efficient way to build a return on relationships and, more importantly, a return on investment by leveraging social platforms.  In thinking about the release, it was only natural to coordinate a massive online virtual event where we could all connect despite our offline location."
