Cleveland, OH, April 28, 2016 – 51 Content Marketing Hacks: Extraordinary Lessons on Creating Content That Will Help You Sell More and Gain More Customers has been nominated for the 2016 Small Business Book Awards in the category of Social Media.

The Small Business Book Awards celebrate the best business books that appeal to entrepreneurs, small business owners, CEOs, managers and their staffs. The Awards also recognize key resources supporting business book authors and the publishing industry.

The Small Business Book Awards are more than just an honor — they include a prestigious online event in which readers, fans, book lovers and the small business community show their support for authors and others in the industry. Social media sharing is encouraged, and the Awards technology platform enables book authors to network and engage online with readers and fans.

“This year we’ve changed a few things. For the first time The Small Business Book Awards are a judged competition, based on excellence. A Judging Panel will determine the winners. We still have Community Voting — the Community will choose for the ‘Community Choice’ designation of winners.” noted Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends and Founder of the Awards.

“Today’s business owners are hungry for information and insights to help them run a successful business. Also, they use books as a way to grow and develop their employees and management teams. The Small Business Book Awards are a way to acknowledge the books that small business owners and entrepreneurs appreciated over the past year,” said Ivana Taylor, Book Editor at Small Business Trends, which produces the Awards.
