Help me Hustle The Red Rooster Cookbook!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read The Red Rooster Cookbook: The Story of Food and Hustle in Harlem! This book means a lot to me as it illustrates why I have come to love Harlem so much and why I call it home. I could use some help showing everyone that this cookbook is more than just a cookbook!

Social Media Superstar Gary Vaynerchuk has recently taken me under his wing. He tells me that it can be helpful to show people how to spread the word effectively. So, Gary V style, post it on your Instagram, write about it on your blog, tweet it out, review it on Amazon, or simply give it to a friend - any way you want to share it is cool. Check out his Insta tips below:

 

HOW TO WRITE AN INSTAGRAM BOOK REVIEW

1.      Take a photo of yourself with the book. Make sure the front cover is prominent and in focus.

2.      Write a brief review of the book. Did it make you think of Harlem? If you've never been, did it make you want to go? Do you think you'll try any of the recipes? Share it all!

3.      Be sure to tag me (@marcuscooks) and use hashtag #RedRoosterCookbook. Other tags you might want to use include #RedRooster and #Harlem
