Book Review: The Authority On Tout

What Is Tout?
Tout is a new social media platform that allows you to share instant messages and information with your audience by using video.

Tout sets itself apart from other video social networks ( YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) by only allowing you to record 15 seconds of content per video post, as well as allowing you to upload video directly from your smart phone. Remember the KISS principle....Keep It Short & Sweet!

I forgot to mention that Tout is absolutely FREE to use.

My Thoughts
This ebook is very concise and informative. I was able to follow the steps for setting up an account. The authors offer good advice for "retouting", following others (including celebrities) and using keywords and hashtags. They also demonstrate how to reply to Touts and share videos with your friends on other social media sites. The authors provide color photos that illustrate everything you need to know to get started on Tout.

Tout makes it easy to BLAST a 15 second video from your cell phone to Facebook, Twitter and email. You can also upload video from your computer and share it with your friends. Tout is great for personal use and can also be used to promote your business. I opened a new Tout account but have not yet posted a video (that will be the topic of a future blog post.)

This ebook is a very helpful introduction to the world of Tout. Get this great little guide and start Touting today!

My Rating:  5 Stars Out Of 5
