Updated Fall 2019 Edition of the SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING book!Learn Social Media Marketing for business step by step in this new, 2019 book on social media by Jason McDonald. Used in his classes at Stanford Continuing Studies, the Social Media Marketing Workbook has become a beloved classic among small business owners and marketing managers. Why? The reason is that this is one of the best selling social media marketing books, one that lays it out clearly step-by-step. The book begins with content marketing, proceeds through each major platform (such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and YouTube) and helps you to make a plan for how to market a business on social media.
The book is based on an analogy - that social media is like a party and that you are the 'party thrower.' You need content just as you'd need food and entertainment, you need a promotion strategy just as you'd need invitations, and you need a systematic understanding of each social platform, just as you'd need a lot of technical knowledge to throw a great wedding or a great corporate meet-and-greet. Indeed, you'll be throwing a 'party with a purpose,' using social media marketing to build your brand and ultimately sell more stuff.
Compare the Social Media Marketing Workbook to other books out there on the topic. It plays well with Social Media Marketing for Dummies, for example, and is an excellent companion to more conceptual books like Crushing It or Building a StoryBrand. It's the perspiration to their inspiration. It's the zig to their zag, and it's a book that gives you more than 500 social media marketing tips. It provides practical, hands-on knowledge for 2018 and 2019.
